Dec 2008: As the "Photography Community" site feature is released, you and I are among the over-500,000 people ("unique visitors") using this site monthly. Over the last 5 years, I have had the pleasure of meeting many thousands of you via email. It has been a great experience. Now, I would like to share that experience - I would like to introduce you to the other 500,000 photography enthusiasts here.
I envision the Photography Community to be a friendly place of sharing, learning and hanging out - and a place to meet friends and build friendships. Community content is expected to be family and work-environment-friendly. Members are expected to be respectful, tactful (even when strongly disagreeing) and friendly. You are an incredibly and diversely skilled group - I have learned so much from you over the years. We are anxious to meet and learn from even more of you.
The Photography Community is running on the popular and mature vBulletin platform. Provision is made for hosting your images (restricted size of course) directly on the site and you are welcome to link to your images hosted elsewhere.
Like the rest of the site, membership in the Photography Community is free. Your support of the site through purchases made using the retailer links provided are what helps to pay the bills. We are grateful for the support of so many of you.
So, please bring your friends and join us at The-Digital-Picture.com Photography Community! Setup your profile, post a couple of your best pics, comment on a couple of pics, ask a couple of questions, answer a couple of questions. We'll see you there!
