We work with our members

To make a better service

for everone

idea light bulb

It’s a simple concept. If you have an idea for some new functionality you’d like to see, then let us know, we might just make it and do it all for free to benefit all our members!

Photographers development fund

and our referrals program

We want to give back to the community who make us who we are.

So when any new site that is added to our system we either give a referral to the lovely people who introduced our new members or put funds aside for an upcoming photographers development fund.

We also give free sites to non profits and independents in the photography industry. More information coming soon.

The team

We have a small friendly team of developers who are also photographers.

Because of this we feel we have a better understanding about what our users want, and as we’re small it means we aren’t faceless and are accountable for what we do… which is great because we’re extremely proud of it!
