Shutterbug Unveils Gold Member Program

Those of you who are regular readers of Shutterbug and visitors to know that our magazine and website offer more than comprehensive product reviews and in-depth instructional tutorials for advanced amateur and professional photographers. While our primary mission is to enhance your techniques and help you make informed purchasing decisions, our printed and electronic products also represent a vibrant photographic community where you can view the work of notable photographers, gain insight from Editor George Schaub and our popular columnists, communicate with one another through our forums, and even post your own images on our galleries.

As the leading publication in our category, we have decided to leverage our strong relationships within the industry by introducing a unique Shutterbug Gold Member Program that provides visitors to our website with exclusive offers and discounts from participating suppliers in a wide range of product categories. Joining the program is easy; there are no cumbersome registration forms to complete or passwords to remember. Simply visit and click on the link for the Gold Member Program. You will then be directed to the program page where you can read the exclusive offers from participating suppliers. When placing your orders, use the promotional code SHUTTERBUG to receive your discounts.

The program's first sponsor is, a leading digital darkroom that delivers affordable film-quality prints right to your door once you upload your images to their website. Their service is great and their prints are beautiful, and you'll receive a 20% discount for participating in the Shutterbug Gold Member Program. The CEO of, L. Douglas Keeney, notes that "Digital photography has profoundly changed the face of this industry, but in the end it still comes down to quality, service and people helping people. In these areas Shutterbug Magazine sets the bar for all of us which makes us exceedingly proud to be a founding participant in this program."

We hope you agree with Doug's assessment, and we encourage you to visit the Gold Member Program page often as we expect to add additional sponsors regularly.
