Remove The adverts
If you are fed up of the ads, please consider becoming a patron of 35mmc!
There are a limited number of advertising spaces in available on the website. These are visible on all pages of the website and are therefore seen by every guest visitor, wherever they travel within the pages of the site.
They are a mix of Google ads – which have become necessary to keep the website alive – and “sponsor” adverts from photography related friends of the website.
I am not looking to make my first million via advertising, I’m just looking to cover the cost of keeping this ever growing site alive.

How adverts found their way onto 35mmc
As of the summer 2016, the time had come that I needed 35mmc to start helping fund itself. I never really intended or expected it to grow to the size it has, but as I’ve said a few times, now it has I couldn’t be happier.
With the growth in visitors and subscribers reaching the number they have, things have started costing more money. With the growth showing no signs of slowing down (quite the opposite in fact), I’m also expecting the growth in costs to continue.
I was fortunate enough with hosting that I was initially able to put 35mmc on my companies own hosting, but due to heavy load it had to be moved onto a quite costly new service.
Combine the hosting costs with the costs of sending out 10’s of thousands of emails to my email subscriber list every month, I’m starting to realise the monetary cost of running a website like this. The answer to this problem was of course advertising.
