One of the things we did differently from other online-only news sites was invest in photography. We’re very proud of the professional look and distinction our photos have added to our site over the last few years.
Have you ever wanted to do that to your own publication? Or just wanted to have a nice print of one of our images?
Today, we introduce the voiceofsandiego.org Photo Store.
The site will be a one-stop shop for purchasing prints, licensing images for personal use or buying the rights to use our pictures in your magazine, brochure, newsletter or any other publication you or your organization might produce.
We’ve populated the site with some of our best work pulled from our extensive archives. Over the years, we’ve stored hundreds of thousands of images. Does your newsletter need a picture of the 10th Avenue Terminal? Does your blog need a photo of the mayor? Did you see a picture you want to put on your wall? Just want to look and see what’s there?
Go ahead. Bookmark voiceofsandiego.org/photostore and you’ll see it update all the time.
In celebration of the launch of our photo store, we’re offering customers 50% off their first purchase, between now and March 31, 2010.
If there are any particular photos you remember and would like to print, license or even purchase royalty free, e-mail photo editor Sam Hodgson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This exciting new initiative fits our mission. It allows us to spread our service to wider audiences while recovering just part of the cost of capturing and archiving these quality images and stories you’ve come to expect from VOSD. So if you’ve enjoyed our photography over the years, or if you’re just discovering our images, we hope you’ll take some time to peruse the site, ask questions and give us your thoughts.
