Dear Photographers, professional or hobbyist



Imagine a website from Nepal, where when articles are written in the context of Nepal, all the images in there are of Nepal and Nepalese people.  Would not that be the best thing to have?  This country is blessed with beautiful people and places, and we don’t really need to look for images of other countries and people to fit into our write-ups and posters.

As you can see, this blog is basically filled with words and images.  As words come from writers, where do the images come from? It comes from Internet.  Now, if you look at those images taken from internet, primarily from websites like Unsplash, those images are of places and individuals outside Nepal.  When a writer writes an article on economy, we need to search on internet the right image that goes with the article.  When a writer writes about relationship, we need to search on internet the right image that goes with the article.  However, this is not how we want this website to be.  Honestly speaking, when we write about something, we wish to have images from Nepal; when we write about relationship, we wish to have couples from Nepal.

Imagine a website from Nepal, where when articles are written in the context of Nepal, all the images in there are of Nepal and Nepalese people.  Would not that be the best thing to have?  This country is blessed with beautiful people and places, and we don’t really need to look for images of other countries and people to fit into our write-ups and posters.

It’s not just this website but many blog sites from Nepal are compelled to do the same and also many small scale media websites from Nepal.  So how long shall we be lost in this paradox, losing our identity even on Internet??

This thought has led us to reach out to you guys who could contribute images for this website and our wall magazines.  We are in a mission of creating an informed society by spreading words and thoughts and knowledge and infos through our website and wall magazine.  This work demands lots of images and it’s not possible to produce all of them on our own.  So this is where we are seeking your support and help, and to start with, our request is simple.  Please upload photos taken by you to websites like tagging #nepal #nepalesepeople, etc.  Unsplash is a photo-sharing platform and all photos published on Unsplash can be used for free. So, basically it’s a photography platform for HD copyright-free photos.  And, whenever we are in need of photos, we will go to the website and take your photos from there.  This small contribution of yours will help many media and bloggers from Nepal to color their websites and blogs and contents with photos of Nepalese faces and places, be it career-related article or relationship or simple how-to-make-coffee article.

If thousands of people from around the world can do that, you photographers from Nepal too can do that, and one day, we all can be proud of you guys for changing the looks of many websites and blogs from Nepal with the small contributions of yours.

Thank you advance,

This website is in testing phase and we would like to request you to give us a feedback on your browsing experience. Thanks

      Neptos is working on it but they have some arrangements to pay/ compensate to the photographers who have done hardworks and spent already a lit for their gears. Its really so shameful of kmagz playing the Nationality card and asking for free to use them commercially that too from Professional Photographer.. I want to ask kmagz do you privide your services for free …

“40 katesi vetaula”



HR:  “Why do you want to quit such a nice job and go abroad to slog?

House Rent: 20K
Bills: 5K
School Fee: 5K
Grocery: 20K
Healthcare: 5K
Leisure: 5K (books, movies, etc)
Vehicle EMI: 10k
Msc: 10K
Total: 80K

How much do I get you know well. Now tell me how can I continue here and still live a basic life?

Now you may say that I can compromise my living standard and bring down the cost. Okay, I did. I shifted to cheap location, gave up my vehicle, cut off my internet, squeezed my bills, put my kid in a cheap school, stopped monthly and annual Health checkup, ate only cheap rice and daal, barely chicken in a week; no movies, no books…down to how much? 30K?

Sir, if I have to live that compromised, what it makes difference anyway working here as engineer or working there as waiter.”

HR just kept quiet.

He goes on saying,

Going abroad isn’t anymore about job. Job in local market can’t pay enough to meet the basic cost of decent living….we are lost in this vicious circle. Government is least concerned, people are lost in greed and are least concerned. Everyone is here to rob each other at high price. I wish I could stay here but patriotism alone will not fix this inflated market.”

40 katesi vetaula

And he left.
