MapMyPHOTO is a free service whereby photographers can share their favourite locations for others to enjoy. We support a growing community of photographers from all over the UK.
First hand advice is always the best but can be hard to obtain through conventional means: books, magazines, forums, photo-sharing websites, hence MapMyPHOTO is difference; it makes it easy for photographers to share relevant information to help other photographers seek new locations armed with the best information. Apart from our core service mentioned above we provide many other services and features, for example: Forums, Polls, Social networking functionality and event sharing.
Our goal is to keep the core functionality of MapMyPHOTO free into the foreseeable future. However inevitably as the website grows a revenue stream will need to come from somewhere to just maintain the site, let alone improve it, therefore although we aim not to charge our users for the core services provided we do offer paid subscriptions in return for users to gain increased functionality. Importantly however, we recognise the efforts of our most dedicated users by rewarding them with a FREE account upgrade via our Userpoints scheme.
