Rural System Images
Stills is an Internet market place for rural-related images of all types. This a place for staff photographers as well as others (for a fee) to display their images from within the region for sale and other uses.
It takes pictures to support the technical and marketing dimensions of the other groups
It holds profitable image contests (slides, prints, etc.)
It supplements TV and marketing efforts.
It seeks unusual and previously unseen images, e.g., high in (or from) tree tops and deep within soil or the creatures beneath stream beds.
It may become involved in paintings and other artistic work with the Sculptors.
One of its functions (with CDs and other publications) is to set up permanent picture points and to take and store images for later comparison, analyses, and appreciation. Computer aided methods for comparisons will be a studies effort for development, publication, and promotion as a service.
Perhaps you will share ideas with me about some of the topic(s) above .
