Hello all!

I have an idea for a new website that I wanted to get some of your thoughts on.

There are tons of awesome websites out there for camera reviews, but the problem (in my opinion) with most of these is that they only really present one review per site, and often times the reviewers aren't working photographers, or if they are they're not professionals. What I'd like to do is build a community-based site whereby a curated selection of professional photographers review SLRs in a real-world context.

What if (as a reader) you could select reviews of the Canon 1D C based on the work of a professional photographer in a niche that you identify with:

    professional cinematographers
    professional wedding photographers
    professional landscape photographers
    professional commericial photographers
    professional street photographers
    professional underwater photographers
    professional wildlife photographers
    professional model photographers
    professional war photographers

In addition to professional reviews, the site could focus on:

    professional photographs of the cameras
    professional photographs with the cameras
    profile pages for photographers. links to the photographers site, social media etc.
    reviews for photographers, by professional photographers
    blog on all things photography. up-to-date news on pro SLRs only
    featured: photographer of the month
    forums for pro SLRs and photography in general

The site could look like this: http://organicthemes.com/demo/magazine/
The domain could look like this: proSLRs.com
The reviews could look something like this: http://grahamclarkphoto.com/review-canon-eos-6d/

The photographers could look like this:

Any thoughts, or people interested? I already have a number of professional photographers, designers and SEO pros who are interested in moving forward with it but I wanted to get a sense from everyone here! : )
