Stock Photography: PhotoShelter

PhotoShelter is a unique online community where photographers from 130 countries worldwide contribute images daily. The site also offers services like The PhotoShelter Collection, a marketplace where photographers can earn 70% of every sale versus the standard 35%.

At PhotoShelter you'll find photographers specializing in weddings, editorial, sports, photojournalism and more. The site is worth a visit where you're interested in buying royalty-free and/or rights-managed images or if you just want to be inspired by great imagery.

BTW, if you haven't seen it already, go see the historical epic movie Mongol. It gracefully illustrates the early life of infamous Mongol leader Genghis Khan.

Unlike the many horrid accounts of the conqueror, this movie portrays Genghis as a fearless young man determined to bring order and security to the Mongol empire.
