Starting A Travel Photography Website

Wed May 04, 2011 5:27 am

Hi everyone, I have been a member of and contributor to airliners.net for quite some time. As a photographer I also have an itch for travel photography. I have launched a website for discovering travel photography from around the world. Let me know how you guys like it, and upload a few pictures if you'd like:

Loads easily even on a 3G connection. Would be nice to have a what's new feature, sort of like YouTube.

I liked the content. Keep up the good work. You should also consider developing app for smart phones after. There are lot of travel apps getting popular. (ex. Arounder HD)

Very nice travel photography website. Did you build it yourself from scratch or use a (commercial) template?

Wow. There are some amazing shots here. Very nice!

In case you are looking to make your site an income earner:

An acquaintance friend of mine is a successful professional outdoors photographer.... On his blog he has an entry from April 26th that you might find useful.

Anybody who intends to sell their photos might find it useful, actually.
Scroll to April 25th.

Thanks, do you guys have any suggestions for what would make the site more interactive -- for example, what would make you come back often, vote on pictures, and upload new ones?

Good job, maybe I'll post a few pics aswell.
I do have a point of critique however; I find it a bit hard to browse the site, mainly due to menu's overlapping each other. I posted a pic below to illustrate what I mean (look at the lower left corner).
