Talking of Pinterest, here's mine. I've only just started to set it up but it's been enjoyable and inspiring so far.

Great post about Pinterest. A lot of photographers have been getting their knickers in a twist and publicly stropping about Pinterest. The site offers a beautiful interface and display of visual content which for a visual industry, is far better to display photographs than the polluted systems from the likes of Facebook. Or even Google's Image search which will index websites and then display images against often myriad different, irrelevant content.

There is great opportunity with Pinterest and as Trey says in his post, links are maintained to the original material which both promotes website traffic and supports the viewer finding out more about the artist. Maybe it is the old school who won't adopt through either fear or misunderstanding. As it stands, I'm in.
Pinterest Updates TOS - removes the word "selling" and much more...

--> Pinterest G+ Hangout - Join us Live Mon at 7 PM PT!

See... I told you that Pinterest had no interest in "selling" your photos. They just removed that from the TOS... Obviously, I'm predisposed to support an open-and-sharing internet because that's how you drive traffic and interest.

Pinterest now accounts for over 15% of all the traffic to http://www.StuckInCustoms.com !

I talked to Pinterest CEO +Ben Silbermann on the phone, and he was perfectly cool and awesome about all this stuff. He's a photographer himself, and he understands the sharing nature of the internet. Ben said "Selling content was never our intention and we removed this from our updated Terms" on his blog today... the same thing he told me on the phone.

And maybe... just maybe... we can talk Ben into joining the hangout. I know heavy-hitter Pinterest user +Kalebra Kelby will be there with me... I spend half my time in Pinterest re-pinning her stuff! See you Monday night... it will be a great hangout!

Here is my Sky-Is-Not-Falling article about Pinterest I wrote a few weeks ago...

A few images from, and words about the Fuji XPro1 on my blog. Quite a special camera it seems. More to follow soon.
