If you have been reading some of the articles during the last couple of days, you might have noticed that we now have a text box under each post that is asking you, our dear readers, to support Photography Life. I am not going to repeat the same message since it is on the bottom of this post, but in summary, we need your support to continue operating the website ad-free. We also want to grow bigger by adding more contributors, which means more unique content, and running routine contests / giveaways that will add more readers and expand our reach.
There are multiple ways you can contribute. The simplest way to help us out, is by buying your gear from our trusted affiliates B&H Photo Video, Adorama and Amazon USA. All three ship internationally, however, if you have tough tax laws for packages coming from the USA, then please use the links below for specific countries:
Buying from our links costs you nothing, does not change the price in any way, but it does help us a little by giving us a small percentage of the sale. Whenever you need to purchase any sort of camera gear, please use our links!
If you feel that we deserve more for our efforts, you can also donate money. You can do it as a one-time payment, or you can pledge on a monthly basis with options from $5 per month to $100 (monthly support would be ideal, since it would give us a monthly budget to work with for various projects). If you would rather use PayPal for donations, please use our PayPal one-time donation or PayPal subscription forms instead.
Our current goal is to give all the donations we receive back to our readers by running some great giveaways. The next one will be huge – we will be giving away a Nikon D800 or a Canon 5D Mark III! We need these giveaways in order to promote our Facebook and Twitter social media pages. I know that some of our readers hate social media and do not want to be a part of it – I totally understand them. However, given how many people use social media today, it is not something we can neglect. Most of our daily visits come from existing readers and Google, but it would be nice if we extended our reach to other traffic sources as well.
So if you would like to provide your support, please visit our Support Us page for some details. Thank you!
P.S. If you have already contributed during the last three days, please do it again – our system was in test mode and it was not accepting credit cards until now.
