    Post Photography Location Guide - photolocations.com.au

    Hey Guys,

    Due to the recent take down of google knol, i decided to put together a website aimed at sharing various photography locations around Australia.

    The website is http://www.photolocations.com.au and is still in its early days, so if you decide to use it and have any feedback I would love to hear it! Its based on the old google knol with a map and placemarker to make it easier to find the location.

    You can add your own locations by clicking on the "add location" button, adding a username and email and a password will be sent out to you.

    Each location post has the option to add your own website or facebook page to the listing so that your photos are credited and users can track the photos back to your page. I also encourage the photos to be watermarked.

    At this stage there are mainly only NSW locations, as that is where I am based, so it would be great to get some users from other states adding locations.

    As I said still only early days so I would love to get your feedback and some location posts!

    Cheers Brad
    Cheers, Brad

    Haha just stiring Andrew, its great your picking these things up!

    T&C's should be working now.

    Not sure why the registration is throwing an error. When you do it not using the sidebar its ok, and even though it throws up the error it still registers, so i might get rid of that login widget!

    Thanks again mate

    Alright, login box and editing profile should now all work ok. There are new links in the top right to do this now.

    Added a bit more content too.

    Thanks for the feedback, upload some new locations!

    Hi Brad

    I think it's a great idea in principal and I hope it takes off and becomes a great resource. I don't mean for this to sound too critical but I think the following would improve the site.

    As is, there is too little information about each specific location. It doesn't really help much so if it doesn't help then why will people use the site? I want to know phone numbers, address, who the relevant authority/owner is, possible costs or restrictions, etc etc. Some of the locations may be in State or National Parks so there will be various restrictions, for example. I'm not saying that everyone else wants that but at the moment all there is is a picture, a brief description and a fairly vague (tbh) location guide. Not everyone who contributes would be able to supply a long list of details but I think you should at least make these fields available and allow people the option to add the info if they have it. Maybe that's too hard.

    Film production people could potentially be interested in such a guide too but the info needs to be there to be helpful. Is there anything out there like it?

    Also, I would want the info in one place, on your site, and not just linking to facebook half the time. I may be the last person without a facebook page, but I doubt it (there must be a few of us in third world countries).

    JJ

    Thanks for the detailed reply JJ, I can definitely see where you are coming from. Regarding the detail, there are a fair few that i have just added with no information so there is at least one place for each state, but ill see if I can add options for more detail for new locations.

    The address is already part of the add location form, you have to set the location on the map, when you load the page there is a little box on the right hand side that you can use to get directions to the site. Ill add an owner/contact field to the add location form as well as a cost field, they could be very useful for certain spots

    Not sure where your referring to about the facebook links? There is a social media plugin that displays a small link at the bottom of each page, and on the about and contact page there is a facebook feed in the side bar, but thats about it?? You dont have to click on them to get the info?

    Thanks for the feedback
