Many photographers, when I contact them to see if they would be interested in participating in the Red Dog News Gallery, question the worth such an undertaking, even at such a fair price of what is now being offered. Now might be the perfect time to make a photographic New Year’s resolution.
In an effort to better illustrate the value of being a member of the Red Dog News Gallery we will need to look backward. We will look over our respective shoulders to examine the numbers. During the time that the Gallery has been in existence Kat Moser has received the most clicks, with Dan McCormack and Jennifer Bong following closely behind.
Even though he is only at mid-pack among Gallery members, Roy Pope more than likely had the most effective click-through. Singer Amy Black was searching for images to go along with a song on her new album, This Is Home. Her search led her to the Red Dog News Gallery and Roy Pope.
“I wrote a song about pipeliners called “Layin’ it Down.” It’s based on a true story of an accident that happened when my husband was 18,” she wrote in an email to Roy. “I want to make a video with the song as the soundtrack and I was wondering if you might be up for allowing me to use some of your photography from that shoot in Mexico. I would credit you, of course, in the description of the video and include your name and website at the end of the video as well.”
Granted, it probably didn’t make enough money for Roy to be able to retire, but it did offer tremendous exposure value. Click on the image to view the video.
That’s all the Gallery is about extended exposure. Being able to find a portfolio of your work in a place that is uncluttered, with a bit of personal information as well as some images specs. We make it simple to pay, to create, to maintain. I have even lowered the price, to make it more valuable and easier on your wallet.
Just click on the “Galleries” tab and find out all you need to know. I’ll see you in the Red Dog News Gallery!
