Photoshelter.com is a stock photo site that advertises on various design blogs I visit. I had to click on their banner because they advertise “The Coolest Stock You’ve Never Seen”. I entered the site, but first I had to register to see the pictures (noted as strike 1). Yeah the images are interesting, but how much are they? No pricing anywhere.
