It became apparent that our .com needed a facelift in order to inspire our customers, as well as to represent our own vision both aesthetically and in intent, and so the redevelopment of photoplacegallery.com became somewhat of an obsession. It has finally come to life after several false starts, substantial investment, and hundreds of man hours. Welcome to day one of our revitalized web presence (we’ve finally arrived!).
For those of you familiar with our inner-workings, you’ll be faced with some changes in our processes. We guarantee it will be well worth the adjustment! A shiny new user-friendly custom-built interface will be accepting your work. If you’ll be leaving the printing to us, your print order (including custom requests) is now integrated. If you’re shipping your work to us, the Gallery Exhibitor Form is now interactive. While we’re grateful to reduce the labor-intensive tasks associated with some of these processes (to a more reliable cyberspace), we’ll not lose touch with you. Expect the personal communications to keep flowing; after all, we’re in this for the reward of the relationships we’ve built with you.
So, please take a look around the new photoplacegallery.com, and let us know what you think. Create an account! Our system will remember you when you log back in the next time, so take a moment to record your credentials (rest assured, your password may be retrieved if you misplace it.). This will allow you to save valuable time in future submissions and print orders.
When Director James Barker took the helm one year ago, we were the planning to launch the new www.photoplacegallery.com within 6 weeks. We sincerely hope that the months of scheming, planning, experimenting, testing, improving, and re-working that have led up to today, will improve your experience (as it has proven to improve ours already!).
*Learn about our Photographers, our Jurors, the inside scoop about Calls for Entry, gallery and industry news, tips and tricks for the photographer, and with a whole bunch of visual stimulation mixed in. You may expect regular installments, between 1 and 3 X’s per week…we’re looking forward to sharing with you so please stop back frequently!
