Announced today, I am now a Certified PhotoShelter Consultant. One of just two, for now.
The head honchos at PhotoShelter carefully examined my customizations, recognized them to be best-practice work and decided to recommend my services to PhotoShelter members.
I get a
Liquorice Allsorts Pepto-Bismol badge for my website and bragging rights.
As they put it on their website:
“Our Consultants have all met a strict set of criteria in order to become “certified”, and we’re proud to offer their services to those of you who could use a strong helping hand.”
PhotoShelter customizations come in two flavors: full custom builds that allow for totally unique results and tweaks to the existing PhotoShelter templates. It is best to start from scratch and build a whole new design but you don’t have to. The fastest and definitely the cheapest way to go is to pick an existing theme and make some small changes here and there. You won’t have something unique but it will be adjusted for you.
Some brand new custom setups and tweaks will be launched soon.
PhotoShelter deservedly enjoys an excellent reputation within the professional photo industry. Needless to say, I fully recommend them. I just don’t see how a professional photographer can afford to not use the services they offer: web galleries for pitching and delivering, RM licensing, print selling, archive backup, photo library display and search visibility. There is a product tour on the PhotoShelter website if you want to take a closer look.
If you do sign up for PhotoShelter make sure you use a discount coupon from a PhotoShelter member. Here is mine:

As a photographer, I use PhotoShelter everyday and I started doing so long before I became a Certified Consultant.
