Ghost’s philosophy is to respect the content creators, but so far it only respects the writers. I’ll suggest a few changes that are necessary before ghost can be a serious platform for all creators.
Most importantly, have a field for photographer’s byline’s under or beside their photos. Maybe even have them link to a photographer’s profile like the writers get. Cutting our names out is disrespectful and often illegal.
To make us happy present the photos more respectfully in your themes. Don’t force cropping of photos on the directory pages, show horizontal photos as horizontal and vertical as vertical, cropping the edges off might be easier, but you lose information that we put in the image for a reason.
Don’t overlay text on photos all the time. It’s a lazy design practice that often detracts from the photos power.
Create better ways to present series of photos. Wordpress has it’s carousel, lightbox, photo grid features built in.
Rethink that free photo service plugin, unless you are also including a free writing service plugin somewhere. Making it easy to include low quality stock photos often hurts content more than it helps.
Respect photos and the photographers that pour themselves into their craft.
