A brief explanation about the new pictureline community!
The value of a link.
When we founded pictureline.com as a website more than ten years ago, our goal was to promote photographers and their photography. Even then, we believed that sending a portfolio across the country via FedEx was a thing of the past, so we founded the original portfolio site on the web. However, we proved to be slightly ahead of the curve. After 2 years, well over $100,000 invested, and about 1500 web pages created, we took the site down and brought it back a year later in its current format: a shopping website to support our brick and mortar operation.
October 2007 marks the 10th year of this converted pictureline.com website. We feel it is now appropriate to turn our attention again to all those great photographers that have made pictureline what it is today. We have worked hard to define a concept and design that meets the goals of our original website and the needs of our photographers today. To that end, we have created a community in which we can promote our photographers and their work.
We hope that you will join our community by adding your bio and images to the site. Your participation not only helps us create a directory of professional photographers from across the country and the world, but it also provides one more way to link the world to you. You will be able to create a link from pictureline.com to your website, a request we receive quite often. This link from our site to yours will not only help visitors access your site, but it will also improve the rating of your site as picturline.com is one of the most respected and highest ranked sites on the internet within our industry.
We've worked hard to make it easy for you to add your bio and images to the community. You can add images and new information in a matter of seconds. As the community grows, we will continue to add new features to make sure pictureline.com is a resource for people looking for photographers. Our goal in the early 1990s and today is to promote the photographic community and our photographers. We know you are successful in taking pictures, and we want to be successful in providing you the tools to do so.
