Snaphubr, is an image stock platform similar to Shutterstock, but exclusively dedicated to African-related content offering professional photographers the opportunity to earn money by uploading high-resolution African pictures of guests taken at events on event.snaphubr.com.
Oluwaseun Babajide, the Chief Executive Officer, Snaphubr Investment Limited said, “The era when African event and celebrity photographers, as well as photojournalists, did not get monetary rewards for their works is gone, as Snaphubr Investment Limited has launched a stock photography website, Snaphubr.com to give them a chance to earn from their photography skills and hardwork regardless of their location on the continent.”
Snaphubr also aims to cater to guests whose photographs at events are not actually delivered denying event photographers an opportunity to earn monetary rewards from their work. However, by simply uploading their event photos on the site, guests can claim and use any pictures uploaded for as low N315 ($0.99).
Babajide says the photos on the site are of high resolution, original and are powerful tools for personal use, corporate marketing and branding.
“An image is a representation of your brand and this is why it is important to make sure you are choosing the right high-quality image from Snaphubr.com,” Babajide said. “Therefore, if you ever had a hard time finding high-resolution African images, your search now ends at Snaphubr.com, a platform aimed at pushing indigenous photographers and quality African images.”
At the moment, Snaphubr.com has over seven million high resolution African images provided by African photographers for Africa and beyond.
“Our recent partnership with YAY images has further strengthened our ability to provide authentic and realistic images that you won’t find anywhere else. In all, Snaphubr provides an easy to access and affordable means to boost the marketing of your business and take it to a whole new level with lovely photographs and images,” he said.
Snaphubr is open to individuals who are motivated and smart, and want to be a part of the platform changing lives and brands across Africa and the world. The platform’s mission is to help individuals make a decent income, whether they are professional photographers or students in college or even stay at home dads or nannies as long as they have a passion for photography and can take great shots. Everyone has the potential to earn money from their photos.
In order to engage professional photographers, the company has also launched another platform event.snaphubr.com. It is a reward system for photographers where they can upload and sell pictures of event guests.
“It often happens that pictures of guests taken by photographers at an event do not actually reach the guests even though guests have requested to send them at a later date. Even if the guests get those images, the photographer doesn’t get monetary reward for it.
“Snaphubr has recognised this problem and, therefore, has come up with a solution that helps photographers get monetary reward for disseminating images to guests from an event,” said the CEO.
The event.snaphubr.com is a platform designed to actually record event and upload pictures of guests taken from an event for easy claims. The guests can actually claim their pictures for as low $0.99 (N350).
