FStop is a free service! We don't have advertisements or subscriptions - the platform is supported entirely by the contributions of folks working nights and weekends. All costs are being covered through either donations from users or investment from our core contributors. We thought a page to show off our awesome team would be a cool thing to share with you :). You will also see a list of FStop Volunteers - these are folks who are offering their services in exchange for your donation to the Patreon campaign.

Feel free to click on the photos below to read more about each member :).


Core Contributors

The members you see below take time almost daily to support the platform - from software engineering to social media management and user support. These folks are super passionate about bringing people together around photography.

If you're interested in joining the team, take a look at our internships page :).
