Sell Your Photo Guides on ShutterGuides

I'm very pleased to announce the beta of the ShutterGuides Seller Program. Now anyone who knows their city or a favorite destination can create a map of their favorite photo spots, with tips on when to go, gear to bring, shooting information, etc, and set a price to sell it for a profit.

We've been working hard on this for quite some time, and it brings to fruition a paper napkin idea (so to speak anyway...in reality the beginnings of ShutterGuides started on a road trip to Yosemite National Park) about the overall vision that we had. In a nutshell, here's how the selling program works:
  1. Create a photo guide.
    Add your favorite spots in your city, country, a national park, or other area you know well. Some cities that are in higher demand currently (and as of now don't have as much content) include London, Chicago, Portland, Las Vegas, and Los Angeles. Of course, anywhere you know well makes for a great photo guide and is not limited to these suggestions.
  2. Set a price.
    Set the selling price of the guide (minimum of $1.99). You'll receive 60% of each sale.
  3. Request your earnings.
    Once your balance has reached at least $25.00 you can request a payout. We will transfer your payout to the bank account you specify.
Piece of cake! To learn more about the program and request beta access, visit our ShutterGuides Selling page. We'll be accepting people in to the beta as we test out the program and get it just right, so please be patient! And as always, we'd love to hear any feedback you have.
