I have affiliate relationships with various vendors of products and services. These relationships help to support this site when links here are used for product purchases. Links to products or services offered via SplatPhoto.com and the Splat Photo email list may be affiliate links, which means that I receive a small commission if a purchase is made after following an affiliate link. This money funnels back into Splat Photo to cover web hosting and other business expenses.
I’ve chosen vendors for my relationships based on my experiences with their products and services; if I’m recommending a product, it’s because I love it. I won’t recommend a product or service that I don’t believe in.
Some of my favorite companies with which I have affiliate relationships include:
