How is this site supported?

This site is supported in three ways: (1) promotion and sale of my books; and (2) advertising (site exclusive advertiser is B&H); and (3) a few buried Amazon affiliate program links for products B&H doesn't carry.

I hope that if you find what I publish on this site as being useful, that you'll consider purchasing one of my books for your camera—you'll find lots of useful information in those books that goes well beyond what's on this site. Or I hope that you'll consider purchasing products from the advertisers and affiliate programs I link to. 

For what it's worth, I do not link to any vendor I don't myself use, and rarely to products I haven't tried and can recommend. Moreover, in the more than a decade of publishing this site, I've removed links to vendors whose service falls below what I consider acceptable levels. I should also note that all advertising is noted as such, and any links to affiliate programs are clearly labeled with "support this site” or tagged with “affiliate link”. 

Unlike most other sites, I want to make clear when a link will engage you in a practice that in some way may reward me (technically, the US Federal Trade Commission requires that, but a lot of sites aren't following even the spirit of the regulations, let alone the exact requirements). Links without the words "advertisement", or "[advertiser link]" or "As an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases" associated with them are clean links that have no hidden monetary exchanges or relationship hidden behind them.
