After nearly six months of pondering, writing and head scratching, I am delighted to announce that Telephoto.com is now officially open for visitors! Although I must admit that it had never occurred to me that we could be launching a photography website during an ongoing global pandemic emergency. It seems kind of surreal to be releasing articles on the website which were wrote well before the Coronavirus pandemic began. Just earlier this month I was uploading a Travel Photography article by David Taylor. Now the idea of leaving my local town, let alone travelling the world, seems an extremely unlikely and irresponsible suggestion. However, photography for me has always been a distraction from the trappings of modern day life… and in many ways this is the reason why I have launched Telephoto.com – Simply for the love of photography.
My main objective for Telephoto.com is not only to create a friendly online space for beginning photographers to learn photography as well as a platform where pro photographers can not only share their images and knowledge but also actually get paid for their work. I have been a professional photographer for twenty years and the way that photography has been devalued over these two decades is simply heart breaking. Not just for me on a business level but for the world of photography in general. I have seen so many talented photographers disappear without trace simply because magazines, newspapers and magazines think they don’t need to pay a licensing fee for their content i.e. The images they use to sell their publications or advertising spaces. I am sure that a lot will change with this website over the coming months (and hopefully years) but I will be happy as long as Telephoto.com delivers fresh weekly content and the people behind this content get paid.
To celebrate the launch of Telephoto.com, I am delighted that we have a free photography ebook now available to download.
