A peer-to-Peer authentic photo marketplace disrupting the $10B commercial photography industry.
stock photo industry has traditionally served brands and publishers by
providing access to mass archives of aging, pre-shot photos to help
illustrate concepts. On Snapwire photo buyers get access to a new generation of photographers who shoot on-demand, custom, royalty-free photos.
Instead of searching for photos, buyers receive submissions to a
creative brief and license the rights to submitted photos. On Snapwire,
we don't share beautiful photos, we sell them.
Photo buyers create a photography challenge, describe what they're looking for, set a price, and a deadline. Our network of talented photographers compete by submitting their best shots. Buyers nominate their favorites, work with their favorite photographers, and over time build working relationships. Whether it's finding the perfect shot, capturing events, or exploring concepts, we give brands real photos to tell their story.
Our website and mobile app keep photographers informed of all new challenges & requests. It also gives them exposure and the chance to work and earn like a Pro - eventually earning the right to participate in pre-paid commissioned photo assignments from real buyers. Photographers also have the chance to earn revenue in our Marketplace, which is our own curated stock photo library.
On Snapwire, we leverage our community of 150,000 photographers in 200 countries to serve creatives who need authentic, original photos to help tell their story. Brands and businesses can hire our photographers 24/7 to help inspire ideas, illustrate concepts and enhance designs in both web and print.
Snapwire for photographers is available in iOS & Android and also publishes a free photographer companion model & property release app called Releases in iTunes.
