One aspect of the Internet I’ve always found attractive is the chance for hobbyists to virtually leave their dens and garages and take their tinkering to the world.
For would-be writers, there’re blogs, fanfics and on-line ‘zines just like this one into which I’m typing.
Now a commercial venture, TotallyPhotos.com, offers pros, semi-pros and hobbyist photographers a potential new market for getting their pics seen and used.
As a “place for truly creative royalty-free photography,” the site will likely help the graphic hungry web provide more eye candy and be a resource for (as they say on the site) 100% royalty free, fresh new material from around the world.
(In the interest of full-disclosure, the thumbnail above is from my photo of the Grand Canyon. I truly think it’s a great Internet-based idea.)
