You take beautiful photos. You should get paid for them.
Snapwire Media, Inc.
Snapwire is an innovative startup vastly disrupting the creative industry. We believe that anyone should have the chance to be a paid photographer. We connect photographers with businesses and brands and the results are unprecedented. We believe the next great leap in the photography business is centered on something human: creative collaboration. We’ve launched a crowdfunding initiative and a chance for you to share our dream.
Since launch in mid 2014, we’ve changed the game for thousands of image buyers worldwide. When creatives work together, the results can be magical. On Snapwire, photographers create images to match a buyer’s vision. Photographers earn money for their creativity, and buyers get photos they love.
Snapwire supporters have reserved over $10M of indications of interest to invest since launching our 1st Test The Waters campaign.
Snapwire is a platform that connects visionary photographers with businesses, brands and creatives around the world. We give photo buyers the ability to post creative requests and proven photographers respond with their best shots. Buyers get unique images that match their vision, and the winning photographers get paid. Anyone can earn. We believe the next great leap in the photography business is centered on something human: creative collaboration.
Photographers receive specific requests through our mobile app or on the web, photographers shoot the photo to specification & photographers get paid. It’s that simple. Buyers nominate their favorite photos, and build working relationships with their favorite photographers. Photographers earn points and keep 70% when their photos sell. The extra photos that aren’t purchased are curated into our Marketplace Library, where photographers earn 50% when their photos sell.
On Snapwire, over a quarter million photographers capture insights, concepts, products, and locations; each on time and on budget. Our photographers are qualified by our platform & work their way up the ranks to professional-level photography jobs.
Getting authentic, custom made photography for brands is fragmented, expensive and hard. The stock photo industry uses mass archives of irrelevant, outdated, pre-shot photos. Searching for the right photo is inefficient and sometimes impossible.
Brands & businesses ask photographers to shoot exactly what they are looking for at a price they control. As photos are submitted in real time, brands get authentic photos that are instantly available to download.
Everyone wins on Snapwire. Even if the photographer does not have their photos purchased from a Request creative brief, they can earn a spot in our growing photo library and have their photo purchased from buyers who seek a traditional photo search.
Snapwire’s Marketplace Library is a growing collection of the best photos from our photo Requests with over 2.5 million worry free images available for license.
On average, 15K people sign up for Snapwire every single month. The community has grown to 260,000 photographers in 180 countries. Snapwire has been consistently featured on the iTunes App Store (Photo & Video > Discovery & Share) with 5 star ratings. With Snapwire, you can hire a photographer from anywhere in the world. Whether it is the tundra of Siberia or the sprawling metropolis of Los Angeles, we have you covered.
Snapwire has been consistently featured on the iTunes App Store (Photo & Video > Discovery & Share) with 5 star ratings. Building a successful company in the photography space relies on a shift to mobile & social.
We built Snapwire’s 5 star rated mobile apps for the photographer in the field to stay informed of new briefs, upload photos on the go, and stay connected to the valuable community. Photographers follow peers who inspire, learn what photos sell, and respond to photo buyer’s questions.
We’re here to build a better way to get beautiful photos by connecting a new generation of photographers directly with photo buyers. The press agrees. See where Snapwire has been talked about.
Finding the right photo can be like finding ‘a needle in a haystack’. Spending two decades in the commercial photo world, we witnessed photo buyers constantly fail at finding the right photo. As Instagram & social networks gave way to a new generation photographer, we knew it was time to collide these worlds and create this community with the first scalable photo assignment model.
We built Snapwire to answer the call of millions of photo buyers who are forced to use cheesy, overused stock photos. Searching for the right photo is time-consuming and often unsuccessful. We’re changing this process. Buying stock photos used to be an experience that was completely disconnected from the photographer who shot the photo, but we’ve brought photographers directly into the process.
The commercial photography industry generates revenue from 2 distinct sources. Commissioned work and Pre-Shot Library licensing. Now that anyone can be a photographer, the demand for high quality photography has never been greater.
The biggest players in the stock photo space work with us. We’ve got signed partnership deals with Adobe, Getty Images, Google and more.
Recent changes to investment law now make equity crowdfunding under Regulation A possible to everyone, allowing both non-accredited as well as accredited investors to invest in private companies. Equity crowdfunding opens an investment opportunity to millions of aspiring photographers around the world. In a day where earning opportunities and success are defined with such variability, Snapwire support economic stimulation in the most remote parts of the globe.
The idea that anyone, anywhere, can shoot, edit, and upload a beautiful photo in seconds, right from the camera, and instantly get it in front of a global audience is incredible. Photos are now considered ‘social currency’ and a form of ‘conversation’ in a way that only words once were. Each day, people shoot over a billion photos and share over 200 million of them online. As we’ve made shooting and sharing photos easier and easier, amidst the change, the economic value of the photograph has been diminished.
Our vision is to enable anyone with a creative passion for photography to earn money doing what they love, while making it easier for photo buyers to get unique, custom photos that elevate their own projects. Now you can #jointhestory to help make a passion into a profession for millions of aspiring photographers.
