Tomorrow is the Jewish New Year. It is a common custom in most of the religious that New Year is good date for new start. So for me Greatphotoshop is this new beginning! In the last year I was busy developing this site from scratch. The last two-month were hectic due to several pre-launch that didn’t succeed. Today I have decided that no matter what is working or not I’m launching it for the New Year and let it be new start and god one for all. Where it all begun?
My name is Haim Srur and I’m like many of you a photographer. Not a professional one, but still a serious one. Like all of those addicted to photography with all this heavy body and lenses, that read all the photo blogs, joined photography workshops, and, (hopefully) get improved from day to day.
AS many of you, I spend my time in a lots of photography sites. This site is aimed for all the photography community: The hobbyists, the professional the industry leaders, and the art buyers. The platform enables every one to find anything that he/she wants instead of wondering around and spend time in several sites. This site includes all.
▪ Ecommerce platform
▪ Social platform – integration with Facebook
▪ Events creation, with inherent invitation system
▪ Private community creation
▪ Portfolio creation – still in development mode
