Over the last two decades, the internet has dramatically changed the way photographers market their businesses and reach potential clients. Because of the web, it's easier than ever before to make your work available to everyone in the world. This has helped numerous photographers increase their brand's presence, sales—and, importantly, helped with the passion many photographers have to share their best art with others.
At the same time, the web has become increasingly noisy. The good content is mixed with the bad, and the "content explosion" means that a lot of photographers have to fight to get exposure for the work they've worked hard to create. Photographers end up paying for ads, spamming their friends, and other suboptimal techniques to share their work.
Today we're announcing an attempt to help photographers share their brand and work with others, and we're calling them featured blog posts. Basically, you'll submit a blog post, photo stories, or other photo related content to us, and we'll feature it on our site. We'll credit you and your site, thereby hopefully giving your work a bit more exposure and helping to bump your site's search ranking! It's free, and I'm very excited to see the interesting content that we'll help promote. Oh, and it doesn't need to be strictly prism/Fractals related content, but—sure, bonus points if it is. 🙂 We get thousands of page hits a day, so it could really boost the popularity and exposure of your work and brand.
I think a lot about the photographic community and what could have helped me when I was trying to turn my photography hobby into something more closely resembling a career. I'm hoping that this speaks to a chord that all photographers feel—so if it does—great! Our site gets a lot of traffic, so it'd be nice to be able to tunnel that into something that could give back to the community. With that said, I would love to hear other suggestions on other ideas and/or ways we can help.
Blog posts sent to us must not exist on other parts of the web, it must be unique to the Fractals website. That's not to say you can't post the images you send to us in other places, but the specific makeup of the text of the blog post together with the images should not be copy and pasted throughout the web.
Fill out the form below and we'll be in touch within one business day with a link to your article, or a reason why it was rejected and how we can work together to get it accepted.
Please send a ZIP of the images to firstname.lastname@example.org with featured blog post in the subject line. Please no less than 5 images per post! Please keep the images 1440px wide.
Thanks for reading! I'm excited to read your posts.
Published by Nikk WongNikk Wong is a photographer, probably very much like yourself. He began his career shooting weddings and portraits, but quickly became obsessed with prism photography. Now, he spends his time building lenses and products in an effort to bring the magic of prisming to a mainstream audience. (Can I stop talking about myself in third person now?) 🙃
