Definitely a solid idea. Seems very similar to http://500px.com : where I have personally bought a few photos. One thing that kills their utility is the Search function is pretty useless. So, take a lesson if you have limited resources : make your search the most badass image search ever because users can't find relevant photos, they ain't buying nothin' Might be a good idea to glance at how they are rolling and yoink some ideas. As they do a lot of things well on the site. Comparatively, I dig how straight-forward PicFair is. A few friendly comments : Why do I have to search before I get filter controls? I think the initial sidebar might be better off showing me those and maybe just sliding a short and sweet one-liner right above the photo grid. In general, I wish the tags and such were surfaced higher as I wanted ways that did not involve searching to browse but I really had to force myself to click around to find a way. Also, it would be cool if when I clicked a color from below the tags if it loaded the color like it was a tag on a browse page. But, added to my list of photo resources!
This is my first non-US investment and I'm particularly enamored with it because not only is it giving power back to photographers, but it's also founded by a guy who was a total neophyte until he taught himself to code via General Assembly (another investment of mine - full disclosure). It's incredibly cool to see an investment empower a person to build a platform to then go and empower even more people.
Very well-designed. I'm not sure what inspired this but there have been several photo-related hunts posted recently. Here are a few since yesterday: - Twenty20 - Create your own Instagram storefront in a few clicks - Splashbase - Search & discover free, public domain, hi res photos - Foap - Authentic royalty free stock photos
Today I uploaded my photos to Picfair. I love the idea, I think it's great.
Thanks @alexisohanian, & props to @riklomas & @jack_lalley for the design/build!
