Instagram To Enable Photographers To Be Hired Within App

Share

James Quarles, Head of Business at Instagram was recently interviewed by Bloomberg where he confirmed that Instagram are in the process of adding a new feature to enable photographers to be booked directly within the app. This new feature is expected to be launched within the next few months.

Essentially, it is a booking option for businesses, there are a huge array of potential customers who want to schedule appointments through the app. For example, booking a hair appointment but our interest was mainly aroused with the notion of booking commercial photographers.

We’ll let you know once this feature is launched and in the meantime, we would suggest if you’re a photographer with a presence on Instagram, fine tune it right now!

Mobile Photography – StreetWise Showcase – February 2017

Share

If you can smell the street by looking at the photo, it’s a street photograph” Bruce Gilden.

Hello everyone!

Thank you all for submitting your images to our StreetWise Flickr group during the month of February. We are always so inspired to see the quality of photography submitted to our group from around the world and it is an honor to share the showcases with you.

It is always incredibly difficult for us to choose such few images for the showcase from all those that were submitted and we want you to know we appreciate each and every post.

As a reminder, we choose images for the showcase that are in keeping with our group’s intention and guidelines focusing on the key aspects of street photography composition, timing, juxtaposition, catching the decisive moment  rather than relying too much on Apping or images that are more art-oriented or painterly.

If you are a mobile street photographer, please consider joining our growing community.

To those new to our street photography community, welcome – it is great to have you join us!

Flickr Group (for weekly showcase submissions)

Facebook Group (for information sharing/discussions) StreetWise – Mobile Street Photography – an TheAppWhisperer.com Group

Mobile Photography – StreetWise – New! Eleventh Challenge – ‘Shooting from the Knees’

Share

 

We do not take pictures, we are taken by pictures”  Ernst Haas

Forget ‘shooting from the hip’, the theme of our next challenge is ‘shooting from the knees’.

Sometimes, as street photographers, we may find ourselves feeling a little stagnant and we may desire to travel away from our usual environment (a new town or city) to find fresh inspiration. However, when that is not possible, changing our perspective can offer a refreshing change.

For this next challenge, we invite you to get low – squat, kneel, lye of the earth, put your mobile phone on the ground – but, have your camera lower than your knees (or thereabouts) and shoot from that level, or, turn your camera upwards and shoot ‘up.’

We hope you enjoy this theme and look forward to seeing your results!

A recap of our rules and procedure for entry:

For the challenge please only post FOUR photographs to our Flickr challenge site on the link below, and in your title or description include ‘Shooting from the Knees’

Please posts photos for our monthly showcase here:
