Welcome to the PhotoBlink Primary
Membership sign-up page!
PhotoBlink exists for over 3 years now. It is constantly being upgraded with hundreds of unique features,
and over this period it has become increasingly popular among photographers. For all this time,
it was a free site for its members. I also managed to keep it free of banners and adverts for this whole period.
But the site requires more and more expenses for hosting, maintenance and development, which I cannot bear alone any more.
I don't have ANY team, partners or sponsors to help me with this Herculesian task.
Your membership payment will go
towards covering the above mentioned costs and will be greatly appreciated. However I don't want your membership to be just a
hidden way of asking for a donation, like it is practiced by some other sites.
I would like to give you as much as I can in return. So for your
Primary Membership together with my deep appreciation you will get a sparkling array of extras, some of which are unique
and have never been offered by any other photographic site in the world.
~ Sergei Samus. PhotoBlink Webmaster.
