How does this differ to all the other stock photo sites out there?

@bentossell Looks like it's a single photographer's entire portfolio, released into the public domain. Great selection of photos.

@bentossell Yes, its my constantly updated portfolio. I also noticed at other places, the landscape photo seem like RAW photo, these are actually edited and are more ready out of the box.

@lasha_kakhidze are you using mobile, I know its a bit hard to find the search icon on mobile, its the magnifying glass, on web, its right on the middle of the page.
lasha@lasha_kakhidze
@yinan_chen yep, see it now.

I'm not sure what the point of this site is apart from a guy giving away his portfolio? Doesn't the creator place any value on his photography? Equipment, skill, time, knowledge etc all ignored in this equation?

@guilliatt It's probably a publicity statement. Great free useage and press for future gigs

@modernty @guilliatt Seems successful at least in part considering there's 500+ upvotes on Product Hunt and listed in their newsletter.

@guilliatt I'm gonna be honest. It doesn't take that much skill. It takes a DSLR(Canon t2i for me), which you can get for $300 now, a tripod($20 off amazon), a set of NDR filters($40) and lightroom/PS($20 a month) to get the quality of photos that I've taken. Its the traveling across the countinent that is expensive but I enjoy doing that and would do it as a hobby even if it weren't a job. As you notice, there is a ad on the site which I use to cover my expense. Goal is actually to attract enough visitors per day to pay off my travel costs and make it a full-time job so I can have a job traveling around North America taking photo and providing people with high quality photoss for projects. Also want to buy a canon MKIII off the ad revenue to do better night photos. I don't do wedding photography so I'm not competing with professional photographers on that end.

I would love an API where I can pull images based on search or the most recent :)
