Just last week Profoto USA launched its Instagram page, and they're already over two thousand followers. It's time to start sharing your images! Here's your chance to be featured by one of the most prestigious manufacturers in professional photography today.
And, here's another aspect of sharing images in a venue like this - you never know who's going to see them.
Years ago in my Rangefinder Magazine and WPPI days we were having a hard time finding a great image for the lighting issue. While we were searching we received a press release from Adobe about a contest they had sponsored. Well, the third place winner had a stunning shot of a boxer perfectly lit. We tracked down the artist. He was a student at the time, but wound up with his first cover, on what was then the largest magazine in professional photography.
So, here's my point. Great images are harder to come by than you might think, and there are always needs for images in editorial, advertising, product support, publishing and the list goes on and on. But you're the only one who can make sure your work is out there. Profoto USA's focus on education and support for the professional imaging community might just be your key to expanding your network.
Just click on their Instagram page below to see more images and then visit their Facebook page as well. And remember...
You miss 100% of the shots you don't take!
So what are you waiting for? Check out Profoto USA's new Instagram page today!
Check out "Why?" one of the most popular features on the SCU Blog. It's a very simple concept - one image, one artist and one short sound bite. Each artist shares what makes the image one of their most favorite. We're over 100 artists featured since the project started.
