REDWOOD CITY, Calif., Oct 24, 2013 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Shutterfly, Inc. SFLY +0.18% , the leading manufacturer and digital retailer of high-quality personalized products and services, announced today that it has acquired BorrowLenses, the premier online marketplace for photographic and video equipment rentals. BorrowLenses's Founders, Max Shevyakov and Mark Gurevich, will join Shutterfly Inc.


I'm happy for BL because I'm sure their payroll just went up, but I have to say, money isn't everything but reputation is.

I personally will never deal with Shutterfly, and since they now own BL, I will never do business with them again either.

Companies like Shutterfly are whats killing the photography industry.

Reputation doesn't pay any bills. I have a great reputation with some local companies, but my home loan bank doesn't care.

I'm sure he enjoyed that adventure,but I'm sure it made more sense to sell it off.

This thread is not about Borrowlenses but a vehicle for you to complain about Shutterfly. Why not just title it "rant against Shutterfly"?

I still don't understand this thread. What does Shutterfly have to do with pro photographers other than printing things for them potentially? Are you sure you arent mistaking them for Shutterstock?

I'll actually echo this confusion -- How does Shutterfly, an online printer, undercut pro photographers? Or do they have services I'm not aware of?

I've used their photo books printing several times - not the best of quality, but fast and cheap...good 'nuff for me!

I think the OP may have meant Shutterstock and he should delete this thread and we'll all forget about his folly.
