- How Referral Links Work on Shotkit
At Shotkit our goal is to help you learn and improve your photography skills and discover exciting new gear. In order to do this, we have a team of expert writers and professional photographers who work hard to ensure we provide useful, impartial, informative and up to date advice.
To help pay for these expenses and the general upkeep of running a site as large as Shotkit, we use referral (affiliate) links in some of our articles. Clicking these links doesn’t make any difference to your experience or the price you pay for products. If you make a purchase using these links, we earn a small commission on your purchase.
(Occasionally, a referral is earned via the use of a code, regardless of whether a link is clicked.)
Any commission earnt via referral links helps to support Shotkit so we can keep providing free content and resources for you. We’re very grateful for your support!
- Native Display Advertising
Another way we pay for the bills here at Shotkit is via the use of display ads. You’ll see these ads displayed as videos and images in our content, often ads related to e-commerce websites you’ve previously viewed, or other offers.
Unfortunately, Shotkit has very limited control over the ads that appear. We are also conscious that the ads may lead to a poor viewing experience – please let us know if this is the case!
All the content of the ads is entirely independent to Shotkit. We’d love to be able to run an ad-free platform, but due to our high operating costs, this isn’t currently possible. We hope you understand :-)

All our recommendations remain impartial and based on the experience and research of our expert authors.
- Sponsored Content
Occasionally a brand may approach us to write a paid review of one of their products or services. In this case, we disclose the article as ‘sponsored content’, but our opinions expressed in the article remain 100% independent – we talk freely about the product’s pros and cons with no restraint. (In these instances, the brand is simply paying Shotkit to appear on the site – nothing more.)
Sponsored content makes up less than 1% of the content on Shotkit, and we intend to keep things this way.
