PhotoCrowd is already a pretty cool way to display your portfolio in case you’re looking for an alternative to something like 500px, Flickr or Instagram. But what’s even cooler is that it’s offering a new built-in print store just in case someone wants to actually purchase some wall art. And if there is any way for you to truly show people your appreciation of the photographic arts, it’s by displaying the pieces in your home.
They’re offering prints, framed prints and wall canvases. Prints obviously are the most affordable while the frames will cost most and the canvas will be even more. Canvases are generally worth it though as they reflect the most light, and are often best for your home. Of course though, these are something that the more artistically mature may value since prints are so personal of an experience that can’t be had behind a digital screen.
PhotoCrowd is a small business looking to build themselves (sort of like the Phoblographer and La Noir Image) and at the moment they’re also looking to build their funds by looking for investors. It’s sort of like Kickstarter but also sort of like investing yourself without purchasing stocks.
It’s how they can get lots of their contests done, get legitimate photographers to help with the judging process of images, etc.
