Hope offers new service

Local photographers join online image bank.

Pathway Partners and Advantage Hope have launched a new online catalogue showcasing local photographers.

The Images of Hope, BC Flickr group provides individuals and organizations with a variety of photos to use when promoting the community in posters, publications and websites. More than 100 images have already been posted to the photo-sharing site.

“We wanted a one-stop shop that people could check out,” said Stephanie Hooker with Pathway Partners. “It’s just a multi-purpose catalogue and a great way to gain exposure for our local photographers. It also gives them a sample of each photographer’s style.”

Members can upload their photos for free by creating a Flickr profile. Each image will be tagged with keywords, and provide a link to contact the photographer directly to discuss image size, resolution and cost. Photographers will retain ownership of all images submitted, unless otherwise negotiated. In addition, the parametres and management of the catalogue will be determined by group members.

The image bank is looking for photos of Hope spanning a 60 kilometre radius of the area. Suggested themes include landscapes, history, community events, recreation and town landmarks.

The photo collection can be found online at  http://www.flickr.com/groups/1740853@N22/.
