We know there are great photographers out there. Photographers with pets that LOVE “Purina Beggin Strips”. We are so sure, we are offering up $100 for the best photo.

Take a couple shots of your pet beggin for beggin strips and if it’s the one we choose to use for our advertising, we’ll pay you the money.

Snap some shots and here’s the link to post ’em up: http://adography.com/want-ad/show/16

There’s a place for us

Photosharing is huge on the internet…we all know this. This writeup on techcrunch shows that there is a need for us in the photo marketplace space. Flickr has spent time and energy to create the marketplace, so it is obvious there is value to selling user photos online. There’s a supply of photos online and a demand for these photos to be used in advertising. We just provide the tool to connect the two.

It makes it apparent that we offer a niche marketplace in that photos are specifically for branded advertising, not just anything deemed worthy by a photographer. By giving photographers direction and instruction on marketplace needs (i.e. want-ads) that advertisers will really want to buy, we create the demand.

Competition is flattery. Even if it’s a big fish like Flickr (aka Yahoo).

We made an honest company out of her

Corporate SealAdography is no longer a dream, but an actuality. We have incorporated and have filed as a registered corporation on July 3, 2008 recognized by the state of Pennsylvania. The to-do list is short before private beta launch, so get your photos ready.

No longer legally challenged

LegalI have been going back and forth with the lawyers  over the past two weeks revising the terms and conditions. Ok, well, to be honest, they have gone back and forth with themselves red-lining copy based on their understanding of the site. We have a complete document, ready to be HTMLed and posted to the site. The lawyers and I reviewed the places where users will be forced to agree to our terms and we have new text for there, as well. If I had to name two things were ever so diametrically opposed, I would say legal thinking and technical thinking.

Turning feedback into backfeed

Recycle feedback back into the siteWe got a ton of feedback from the 9 people that were invited to super special private first-look of adography.com. Thanks to Kampyle for easily taking the feedback, we have everything together with the page on which the problem/issue/nitpicking occurred. Our next step is to organize that and create working tickets (issues) that we need to resolve. While Kampyle is great for taking feedback, it lacks any true organization features to get things into development (i.e. trac, basecamp, etc). So, time to get to organizing and get to work. Stay tuned.

First glance at first look: It is gonna be a bumpy road

Bumpy RoadFirst look emails went out today to 8 friends and family members. Within an hour, one of them reported a bug in registration. Our team is looking into it, but it seems as though the first look appears to be the start gate to a bumpy road. Hey, it can’t be any worse than twitter. Actually, we would love to eventually have their problems (or a scaled down version).

More to come on the first look feedback…

Adography: A first look

First LookWhile most start with a private beta, our site is going to launch with a “first-look” phase. We are looking to seed the database and get initial feedback before we get to private beta. Also, we are working out the last details with legal and business issues, so we are letting people get a first look, without having all the legal issues sorted out. Obviously, they are all going to people we trust (and only about 5-10 in number).
