I’ve been fairly busy at the new job in the past several weeks. We have been hard at work on The PhotoShelter Collection, a new edited marketplace for photos. It’s a very exciting product, and it’s a fantastic site for both image buyers and photographers.
The photo archive portion of the site is going strong. PhotoShelter provides a great solution for photographers to archive their photos. I feel strongly that photographers should not just store their digital photos in their home or studio–even if they don’t use PhotoShelter’s Personal Archive, they should store them somewhere else. (I started to use the archive product before joining PhotoShelter.) And if you have a significant number of slides and negatives, get them scanned. It’s easier to dupe a digital image than film. And dupes of a digital image don’t degrade in quality.
