    Jan,

    Thanks for visiting my web site, and thanks for the kind words 🙂 Larry Marion, roguewavemedia.com did my site.

    To subscribe to my newsletter, just scroll down a bit on the landing page. On the right hand side you will see a signup window, but I will go ahead and add your address.

    I sure wish I could advise you on the best ways to promote you web site. I have tried FB and AdSense, and not much response. My main claim to fame, such as it is, is the opening shot of the crowd on the hillside. It was a rally for the World Champion Kansas City Royals after they won in 2015. More than 800,000 people showed up, and I was on top of Union Station Kansas City to capture the moment. The photo was shown on the floor of the House of Representatives in Congress, on the Jimmy Kimmel show and picked up by media around the world. It was all a fluke, but I was happy to take it.

    I do a lot of posting on FB and Twitter. I have been mostly an assignment photographer for many years, but that work is becoming harder and harder to come by. So I am working more towards trying to market prints and stock online. I have a large library of photos from a half-dozen other photographers, and some of those images go back to the early 1930’s. I find that there is some interest in those.

    I have made some good contacts on LinkedIn, but not until I signed up for the premier version. Very pricey for this freelancer, but with it you can type in a category and up pops lots of people in that group. It is a very slow process at best, and takes many tries to get even a single response.

    I am not familiar with FutureNet, but will take a look.

    I did take a look at your web site. Here are my thoughts right off the top. I do hope you will take this as constructive observations.

    The overall look and feel is clean and modern, and easy to read.

    From your sentence structure I would assume that English is not your first language. I am not trying to be offensive, just giving you my feedback.

    Your opening statement on your landing page: “In current world, everybody needs money…” The smoother way to put it might be “In this current world…” Bear in mind I am no great shakes at English composition myself. I see the same structure in several sentences.

    I signed up for your newsletter.

    A couple of my friends and I are starting a NEW visual online magazines and I think that would be a better place than my photo site to put your web address. We hope to launch April 1. This new site will appeal to a larger, more diverse demographic, not just people interested in buying prints, stock or wanting me to shoot assignments.

    Best of luck with your new endeavor, and let’s stay in touch,

    With cheer,

    Roy Inman
