Problems of Being a Photographer
Okay, here is the deal.
As a photographer, you need to invest in professional photography equipment such as:
- professional DSLRs,
- great camera lenses,
- flash, filters, wireless triggers, memory cards, tripods, bags,
- as well as hire models, take pictures, spend hours color correcting on a Mac,
- build a portfolio, contact stock agencies, and art buyers, market yourself,
- buy a domain and photo hosting space,
- design a website and get a payment gateway…

8 years ago a casual dinner meeting to discuss the future of photography and the industry witnessed the birth of a new platform for photographers – PhotoShelter. Since the launch of PhotoShelter, the industry has seen a lot of changes. Digital cameras are ubiquitous today and compact cameras are being increasingly pushed to the wall by the ever-improving mobile cameras. The technology inside today’s DSLRs have improved dramatically too.
But the essence of photography has not changed a bit. People still love to take a pictures and share them with their friends. What has changed, though, is the way they take and the way they share it. Thus PhotoShelter has more relevance today than ever before. It seamlessly fits into the growing demand created by a larger global community of photographers.
They want to have a way to not only be able to share their photos seamlessly but also to market their photos and to have a dependable platform from where they could showcase their work without the associated hassles of having to invent the wheel all over again (i.e.; do everything by hand).
