- A major feature on the PhotoSource International website:
The PhotoSource BANK provides a directory of photographers,
with complete contact information and electronic access, plus specific text
descriptions of their photos and specialty areas. Using the powerful PhotoSourceBANK
search features, a photobuyer can find a photographer in seconds who has coverage
of their needed subject area. The buyer then contacts the photographer directly,
and using phone, fax and either light box or traditional delivery methods,
makes the transaction. This is a practical, cost-effective promotional channel
available to photographers. Photographers receive 100% of each sale.
This feature on the PhotoSource International website serves
as an exhibit area. An extension of the PhotoSourceBank,
participating PhotoSourceFolio photographers each
display six representative images. A prospective photobuyer can quickly see
firsthand the photographer's unique vision, technique, and expertise. For
photographers, using their personal PhotoSourceFolio
page can avoid delays in sending samples and/or sell sheets to a photobuyer,
and thus speed up a sale.
