Arlington, TX (PRWEB) October 11, 2004
Construction Photographs (http://www.constructionphotographs.com) has announced that it is making a large collection of construction-related stock photographs available to the media and the general public for no cost.
The photographs feature all phases in the construction process, including: sitework, concrete slab preparation, tilt-up construction, various skills and trades, finishes, special construction, equipment and mechanical work. The photos are large enough to use in publications and other print documents, and can be resized down for use on websites and computer presentations.
ÂCurrently we have approximately 500 photographs,Â said Jeff Schaefer, webmaster for Construction Photographs. ÂWeÂre adding new pictures all the time. We think our collection will be a great benefit to manufacturers of construction industry products who are looking for graphics for their websites, magazine editors who need photos for their articles, students who want pictures for their projects . . . there are a tremendous number of applications for our pictures. And since we do not charge for the use of our pictures, you canÂt beat the price!Â
The photos are organized into the CSI Divisions of Construction Specifications and the collection can be searched for specific keywords. Site visitors can scan through thumbnail-sized photos and view larger ÂpreviewÂ versions for more detail. When they find a photo they want, they submit a brief form (name and email address) and receive a link to the full size image in their email. The preview versions are watermarked with Construction PhotographÂs copyright information but the full size images are not watermarked.
There is no charge to use the photographs, in print or in electronic form. The only requirement is that Construction Photographs receives a photo credit and (in electronic applications) a link back to its website for each use of each photograph.
ÂUse of the photographs is free,Â said Schaefer. ÂThere are no hidden costs or charges later on. We understand that privacy is a serious concern for many; we make it very clear that we do not compile mail lists or sell user names to spammers. Using our photographs will not generate more spam in your inbox. All we want in return are the photo credits and links back to our site. Our goal is to drive more traffic to our site and get our name out there. Allowing free use of our photos is the best way to accomplish that.Â
ÂHiring a photographer can be expensive,Â Schaefer added. ÂStock photographs Â particularly those large enough to use in print documents Â quite often cost $50 or more each. Our photographs are free Â not royalty free, but free. If you need images of construction-related activities, we think youÂll appreciate the value of what weÂre offering.Â
