Is this for real? With the traffic this site gets I imagine there is plenty of room for Google ads to bring in revenue. If the full-screen-shock-and-awe-Aperture-ad isn't some sort of prank, the site has reached a new low if this is the type of ad you're courting. Did you miss the whole Google revolution (e.g. why Altavista failed in the end was because of their site becoming almost unusable due to the ads). I have attached (I hope) a screenshot of The Most Obnoxious Ad yet. In fact, one of the key revolutionary observations Google made was that ads should be kept as unobtrusive, to the point and as few in number as possible! Photo.net seems to be stuck in 1999 if they hadn't gotten that message. Sorry for the rant, but this was just so over the top and clueless if indeed it wasn't a prank that you deserve to be notified ASAP by your readers while you still have any.
