This app is very boring!

Provide more photos and videos and maybe even some downloads!

Long forgotten app:(

Shame. I was hoping it might still offer the material.


Amazing way to have a photographer’s fine art gallery in your pocket!

This is an amazing way to have a photographer’s fine art gallery in your pocket! Great design and simple to use! Hats off to Laforet to push the envelope to bring fine art photography to an iPad and iPhone app. I love that I can review the image, and the technical details behind the photo along with a video story of what made the image “click.”

I like that the app was fee so I could see it. I am surprised that anyone would question having to pay only .99 cents to download additional galleries. If you love photography, you want to know the story behind images that capture you and .99 cents is nothing to learn more about the craft!

I think this method to display, educate and sell photography will allow fine art photographers enter a new arena of displaying their image!
