If you are serious about your photography, then that is an easy answer, yes! If you want to start a photography business (either full or part time), want to reach potential clients and customers in the market place, and want to network and collaborate with other professional photographers, then PhotoShelter is the single best place to do that.
There are many photosharing sites out there that let you sell photos and make a profit. And there are a handful of sites that let you make a totally customized webpage, incorporate professional branding, and give clients access to private galleries. But there is only one site that we have found that is designed from the ground-up with the professional photographer in mind (hint: its PhotoShelter):. It is all about improving the photographer's workflow, increasing efficiency, and getting more exposure for your photography. Check out their extensive features list.

Finally! With competitors SmugMug and Zenfolio both offering 2 week Free Trials of their services, we always wondered why PhotoShelter made photographers pony up a dollar for the same privilege. Maybe it was because they positioned themselves as the super-premium service, where even the trial cost more. And while they offer a lot more features than both SmugMug and Zenfolio, [...]
PhotoShelter just recently announced earlier this month that their storage limits have been increased for all their accounts! The new limits range from 10GB on their basic plan, to 60 GB on the standard plan, to a whopping 1TB (1000GB) on the professional plan. Plenty of space for a lot of jpgs, RAWs, and PSDs.
