The Solution to Capturing that Unforgettable Moment Every TimeAKiATECH
Hey there, so as most of you know by now, I’m an avid fan of Photography. I consider it an art and it takes time, patience and a lot of skill to capture the “Right Moment”. I have been learning the ins and outs of this process for a few years now and although I’m by no means a “Professional” especially since I don’t get paid directly for the photos I take, I do understand the tremendous amount of skill necessary to get those photons to line up just right on that sensor when capturing those unforgettable moments or that once in a lifetime shot. This is also why I know that I would never volunteer my “skills” to capture anyone’s wedding or any moment that getting the wrong shot or not getting the shot at all could make my life and theirs miserable. For those moments, I highly suggest that a professional i.e. someone who actually gets paid to practice the art of Photography does the point and clicking.
This brings me to subject of that long-winded intro. Over the last few years that I’ve been a practicing photographer, I have seen an unsettling trend in the market for Photography services. The fact is that there are not a lot of skilled Photogs out there! There is an assumption that buying the latest top of the line DSLR will get you the perfect shot every time but sadly this is a myth and yes, you can just put it on auto and press the button, but that’s like having a taxi drive you around a racetrack, doesn’t make much sense now does it…. Although in the end, they do get the picture (I hope) the result will be underwhelming and will leave them and any potential clients disappointed. I’ve recently come across a potential solution to this problem. It’s an app called Galaxy Photoz and it’s currently in the final stages of development and has an ETA set for mid-2017
The Galaxy Photoz app is the brainchild of Canadian Leanne Ferguson and is the culmination of years of experience as a Professional Photographer in her Hometown and around the world. The app is an extension of her existing website http://www.galaxyphotoz.com/ that now opens her service offerings to the millions of mobile users around the country and the world with the goal of matching Professional Photographers with their Discerning clientele. A few key features of the service are listed below:
Once booked, the Photographers come to you
There are promotional offers for In-studio shoots
You are instantly matched with a vetted photographer
9 types of photography provided: Maternity, Newborn, Cake Smash, Headshots, Engagements, Wedding, Events, Model Portfolio, and Portraits.
Many photographers are already using the service
Galaxy Photoz offers a 100% satisfaction guarantee with reshoots vs refunds
There is also an affiliate program that pays $5 per shoot
The company and its founder believe that If a colleague cannot point you in the right direction, you’d typically have to go online, search through portfolios, check reviews then call for quotes and availability to find a professional photographer. When Galaxy Photoz launches this June, you could simply download the app or go online and be connected to a vetted professional photographer within minutes instead of leaving a deposit with someone you just found on the internet. Your deposit will be held by the intermediary Galaxy Photoz like an escrow account until you receive your images. Within minutes of signing up, you’ll be talking with a pro. You can even book for same day service. The photographers specialize in the 9 types of Photography listed above and are extremely skilled in their own specific niche. The company is now putting the finishing touches on the app but they need your help in order to launch in multiple cities this June. If you want, you can support this project on Indiegogo today and get some really cool perks like drones while they last. check out their campaign at http://www.go.galaxyphotoz.com
