Steve
If you want I can put you in touch with the chap that hosts my site. Its not costing me much to be hosted with him, and I currently have more than 1000 photos uploaded there.

Hopefully some of the newer members here would consider uploading their town/city photos to my site too?

Re: The Local Photo

Steve,

Would it be an idea to add a section to the site for people/companies who are looking for something in particular? I've seen it on other stock sites, and it may be an idea for you to think about whilst the site is in its infancy.

There have been some excellent images uploaded today...how do you control the quality?

Janet

Thanks Janet, that is a great Idea, to add a Request page, I have a notepad of development ideas and thats now on there

Yes I agree some excellent photos, im really happy with the response, its just myself controlling the site for now, but will outsource responsibilities if all goes well

If you wouldnt mind creating a link from your site for me I would most appreciate it and do the same in return

Thank you
Absolutely no problem in thought deed or action, so offence doesn't come into mind at all

And no problem at all to link to The Local Photo from my websites where possible - crossover links are a good way to help promote websites of interest and help them get picked up by the various search engines, so with this or any other sites that I feel happy to promote it's good to help out in a small way.

Would you like to PM me with a short resume about the new site and I will then use or adapt that and any logo (if available at this time) on my website.
And if Ian sees this, how about Olympus providing some logos etc., for us to link our passion and the cameras that we use?

Regards

PS - for those who don't know the real side of 'catkins', my name is Chris - hello!

Re: The Local Photo

Hi Steve

Will you be offering anything other than royalty free?

I've always had a credit when my pictures have been used and I don't believe that royalty free gives me such a right.. right ?

Stupid or not I think that if David Bailey can have his name next to his picture why can't I

Also will you be offering single use or time limited options for the photographer to demand. I've always sold for a purpose and editorial/commercial and web/print are different purposes that typically attract different rates

Regards
Andy

Thanks for the questions Andy, at the moment I will be starting off as Royalty free and single use.

The long term plan will be to add more and more options like extended use of images etc

Another service I will be looking to offer is password protected secure areas that you can load your photos into and send to your clients and only they can see not the general public.

I hope this helps

Re: The Local Photo

Hi Steve,

Just signed up (what better motivation to get out and about over the holiday period).

When you get a chance can you add 'Hertfordshire' to the list of counties.

Fingers crossed for you, sounds like a sure winner to me.

Jason.

Cheers Jason, I hope it helps everyone to get out and take more local photos. I've added the town for you too.

Re: The Local Photo

Sounds interesting!

If a customer orders a print, who physically makes the print, puts it in the envelope, and licks the stamp? (Please excuse the naive question, but I've never even thought of trying to sell a picture).

Also, should pictures submitted incorporate a copyright message?

Thanks

David

Re: The Local Photo

Hi David

It is a very good question, so far I'm thinking of using photobox as the sole supplier of all prints through their reseller department.

Out of all the companies I have used in the past I have never had a problem with using them on a supplier to client basis and they can handle everything for me down to tracking the deliveries.

Cheers
Steve

EDIT. with copyright the site auto generates a copyright watermark to protect your images
