Buying orginal African images has been an offline thing, especially in Africa. Most photographers have found it tough to sell their wares until the launch of Foto.com.ng and now Photographers.com.ng.
Photographers.com.ng aims to be Nigeria’s premier photographic booking platform by connecting photographers to the world using an online platform and sell their images to as many people as possible.
“Our aim is to create a marketplace that allows both emerging and established photographers share their portfolio online,connect with fellow photographers, and do business with prospective clients interested in their services,” Francis Oghuma, co-founder of photographers.com.ng told TechMoran.
The Lagos-based platform aims to attract and feature only the best in the land by choosing accomplished and skillful photographers in the industry who can then post their images of events, trips, people, things among others to sell to a wider market globally and in Nigeria.
Photographers list their portfolio of their works and can also be booked for future events. Users can search for photographers that match their needs, view their profile and book them for their jobs using a simple Book Me button. Being a marketplace the site will help just anyone get access to original images plus it’s social network capabilities will make it a meeting point for photographers of all walks of life, this will help firms to get and book them easily.
