New York, NY, --PhotoShelter Inc., where an online community of 42,000 independent photographers find success through image sales and archiving technologies, recently announced a limited-time opportunity to purchase a selection of prints from The PhotoShelter Collection.
Handpicked by PhotoShelter's team of editors, the prints reflect the wide aesthetic range of images contributed by PhotoShelter's global photographer community, from exquisite floral still life to Las Vegas Elvis impersonators. Available now through October 1, 2008, images can be viewed and purchased at www.photoshelterprints.com.
Since the September 2007 launch of The PhotoShelter Collection, the company's stock photography marketplace, visitors have frequently requested the ability to purchase prints - recognizing the contemporary art quality of images contributed by PhotoShelter photographers who range from renowned Pulitzer Prize winners to undiscovered, or emerging young talent from around the world. PhotoShelter Prints is a direct response to these requests, and part of the company's ongoing exploration of new sales opportunities for independent photographers.
"With thousands of contributors from more than 160 countries around the world, we're in a unique position to make independent photography accessible, at reasonable prices, too," said Allen Murabayashi, PhotoShelter's CEO. "We're excited about the potential of PhotoShelter Prints to continue to help members of our community be successful, and we're looking forward to introducing these exceptional images to homes and collections everywhere. Some of the work has never before been offered publicly."
Two galleries of images are available; one offering photos with a contemporary aesthetic and the other a classic. The selection of images and contributing photographers is a broad sample of the diverse work and specialties available as stock photography through The PhotoShelter Collection. In addition to dozens of emerging talented photographers, notable contributors with prints available through this offering include Radar Magazine Photo Editor Stacey Pittmann, award-winning editorial photographers Ami Vitale and Landon Nordeman whose images regularly appear in the world's most widely read newspapers and magazines, and Andy Biggs whose African wildlife images are currently featured in Banana Republic retail stores across the United States. Print prices vary by size, ranging from $100 to $450. All images are printed on archival quality Kodak Pro Endura Supra paper, which offers print stability and longevity of up to 200 years.
PhotoShelter Prints are available today through until October 1, 2008. Pending the success of PhotoShelter Prints, the company may formally launch a PhotoShelter Prints line which would then be open to participation from the full PhotoShelter community of photographers.
