Let's face it - the bar for getting an image in the front page banner isn't particularly high at the moment (no offence intended to anybody who might have an image in there just now). Anybody who's been around for a year or two ought to be capable of uploading an image or three that's pretty much guaranteed to get in there. So that's good isn't it - it's pretty much an open goal at the moment. Just a little application and good taste required to reap whatever benefits are conveyed by having an image in there.

It's not a bias towards certain people, it's a bias towards a certain level of quality.

Run-on-the-mill glamour & images akin to just being 'snaps' simply aren't going to do the site any favours and are simply left out. And for models you want good posing, not just some girl stood there like a sack of spuds with a face like a slapped arse.
I prefer not to think before I speak. I like being just as surprised as everyone else by what comes out of my mouth.

Yeah I'm glad the homepage isn't cluttered up with cringeworthy tack.
If I want to see that I can go onto the "known" cringeworthy tack photographers pages and look/laugh.

I don't really pay much attention to the homepage, ocassionally will spot an image I like enough to pop over to the owners portfolio to leave a comment and if thats the "intended" purpose then its doing its job just fine.

+ 1 to that

I could be wrong, I thought the banner images were selected from paying members uploads "at random" from a pre-approved pool. There was problems in the past with some folk deliberately not tagging images appropriately so the pool of images couldn't be selected automatically, so if you're going to have manual intervention you may as well pick the better stuff.

+1 @Redchecker & @Chrissie_Red

If one of my uploads ever made the FP then it would mean something - rather then just because I uploaded a pic. I enjoy seeing aspirational images rather than a page of "maybe" shots. I often see a model who I would like to work with and follow up.

I hope you all know you've made me cry as I uploaded four images last week and none of them made it to banner. I always thought I was unlucky but now I know I'm just rubbish.

Still shooting tomorrow so try again.

I've just flicked through the image uploads as far back as 10th November and couldn't find anything that particularly jumped off the page as being any better than what's there already. So perhaps people just need to upload better images and maybe then the rotations will happen much more quickly



I just did the same and Bar a few exceptions ( which i can count on one hand ) I have to agree, IMHO of course....
