I've been approached on Instagram by a person from YouPic.com.

They were very flattering about my work and said they wanted to "feature" me. I'm naturally sceptical and am too old school to need my ego massaging.

The next steps to being featured are

"Wow, awesome! So the next step is to upload a few images to the site (www.youpic.com) Send your profile link when done and I will feature you "

Has anyone any experience of this site? Is it just a means to join the site? Sounds like "you don't get something for nothing in this world " and "if it's too good to be true, it probably is".

Your thoughts and experiences would be much appreciated. TIA

I bet there will be a FEE INVOLVED sooner or later and they could use your photos free without you knowing. It sounds Dodgy to me ---

Photographers paying to have their photos showen ! I thought it was the photographer was paid to let people see his photos!

But there again once the Bay City Rollers syndrome (paying out all your own money so long as you get fame) is factored in anything is possible.

If anyone is interested I can display their photos on my website £10 a month for up to 40 photos. £15 a month up to 80 photos.
