Feedback, Ratings and Learning
Photography has been my hobby over the past 10 years. Along those time, I've captured a lot of photos with different themes mainly for interest. I wasn't aware of its value until I start joining ShutterPoint. As an amateur photographer, I only start venturing into the stock photography market since last year. My first step was submitting my images to ShutterPoint as they provide good service with an afordable membership fees. To date, I've sold a number of images with a reasonable price through this agency and the service and customer support is great. Overall, I think ShutterPoint is a good place for photographers to feature their works as they provide excellent service and a fair place to trade our work.
I joined Shutterpoint just about 3 months ago. I have sold one photo and have numerous photos that have "pre sale" activity. I have learned so much from this site and from the photographers that are also members. The comments and feedback I have received really have assisted me in improving my work. This is a tremendous site to learn and to grow as a photographer. There is a wealth of information and resources available on this site. If you are looking to learn more about photography, grow as a photographer and sell your work, look no further, Shutterpoint is the place to be!

I remember a about 18 months ago I was deciding what site to join. Out of all the sites out there ShutterPoint stood out at the time and still does. Why did I join ShutterPoint?
1. It was the easiest to navigate, the search options worked and upload function was easy to use.
2. The rating function gave me some great feedback as I stepped from the film world into the digital world. I have benefited from the advice of so many here and still learn a new technique or tool often.
3. The commission structure was fair and the storage fees minimal. I have covered my storage fees many times over.
4. I have met many great image makers from all over the world and have developed some friendships that are both personally and professionally rewarding.
A year later, what keeps me here with my largest portfolio on the web?
1. I sell more here than anywhere else but locally.
2. I continue to get great feedback from skilled image makers all over the world.
3. The site functions faster than ever, with more and more features added to make the job of the photographer and the buyer easier.
4. My exposure here on ShutterPoint recently led to a 9 image sale to a startup venture that is my largest to date but also has the potential for future royalties and sales. (Without my exposure on SP that sale does not happen)
5. The customer service here has been great. Issues are responded to in a timely fashion by Ken, Jake and Kate and the rest of the ShutterPoint staff.
Professional and amateur alike can benefit from the exposure and communication with others that this site facilitates. Not to mention the sales activity it has generated. In short, keep up the good work ShutterPoint.
I just wanted to drop you all a quick note to say thanks and great job on this site!
Shutterpoint is a very easy to use and fun site both as someone just looking around and as a photographer (hobbyist) uploading and managing photos. Well done!
Since my main career in life so far has revolved around technology, web sites, software, consulting and IT management, I've been involved with a lot of great projects start but unfortunately many fall short of expectations and especially ease of use! Since I'm sure there are always more things on your to do list and I'm sure a ton of requests being sent your way, I wanted everyone involved to know that you are doing a great job and all your users appreciate your hard work!
I will soon reach my one year membership with Shutterpoint and have found the site to be very rewarding. I have been successful with sales and have had the opportunity to obtain knowledge from other photographers on the site. The communication between photographers and the ease of use, user friendly site makes the experience with Shutterpoint even more worthwhile. I have had numerous people contact me before joining the site wanting to know my experience and am glad to see that some of those have joined. I appreciate having other photographers input as to what I can do in order to increase the quality of my work. I also feel priviledged to have many photographers on the site contact me inquiring about information through personal email Shutterpoint offers to members so that I am able to help them as well to improve their work.
With more than 400+ images on the site and still increasing my postings for sales I hope to continue to be successful and retain all the wonderful friends and contacts I have gained by being a member.

With your reasonable prices and extensive features, ShutterPoint is the best deal I have found. I came to ShutterPoint because you allow advanced amateurs with a small portfolio a chance to sell their work and gain exposure. You also allow photographers to set a fair price for their work and take only a small percentage, unlike those horrible micropayment sites. Through some of the talented photographers here, I have gained insight and inspiration and now have a more extensive portfolio that I am proud of. I have been regularly selling photos and look forward to that continuing. My favorite new feature of yours is the pre-sales information. It gives us photographers more insight what buyers are looking for and lets us know which photos to keep in our portfolio for potential future sales. ShutterPoint's customer service has also improved in the short time I have been here and they are more receptive to ideas and quick to respond to questions. Thanks for a terrific site ShutterPoint! I look forward to a long stay here.
I like using this service due to the full range of services offered as opposed to other websites. There is a sense of community here and my photography has improved due to feedback I have received from fellow photographers. Other websites are just simply catalogues of photography. The ongoing disputes about ratings will most likely continue as no rating system is perfect. Overall ShutterPoint is doing a great job. The best feature is the new sales tracking introduced recently. Keep up the good work.
