The Idea behind photognow.com
There are loads of different online directories like tripadvisor, yelp, and the yellow pages and so on. And they are all great for their purpose.
This directory is a personal project by me. I’m a photographer myself and i struggled to find a proper directory for creatives.
A lot of business is developed trough word-of-mouth recommendation in our industry but i also know a lot of photographers who are really good but aren’t visible to potential customers because they are submarines in the world wide web due to unfortunate web appearances.
photognow.com aims to provide creatives – photographers, videographers, make-up artists – with a platform to present their work to potential customers.
On the customer‘s side, i didn‘t find a proper directory either. Let’s suppose, a couple is looking for a wedding photographer or want’s romantic holiday shots at the beach by a local photographer near by. They‘ll have to ask friends, people on facebook or click through hundreds of websites just to find out that the photographer is too far away.
That‘s why i started photognow.com. To get professionals and customers together – easily, voluntarily and non-binding.
People can set their location and browse through the listed businesses around them. If they find a listing they like, they can get in touch directly.
