    I think this is fantastic and gives the site a whole new dimension, I love the commercial side of fashion photography, it could'nt have come sooner! Brilliant.

    I love the idea
    usually I prefer non commercial..but I trust you guys not to go over the top and so far..I'm loving it. Infact it'll probably give me more respect for commercial fashion photography.

    I like seeing ads on the site , they add a certain validity
    to the proceedings , but do you think they will lead to
    a change in editorial policy ?
    i.e. advertisers insisting on being included in projects and shoots.

    I trust you'll temper this step with impeccable taste and free creative reign... And commerce is a necessary foundation right? and you need big blocks on which to build a tower of power. Besides 10X8 isn't cheap....
