When developing their portfolios, photographers are in constant need of models to work with. Models also find it difficult to find photographers to do shoots. Their options are limited. Professional models are hard to come by, especially if you’re not very well-connected.
There are groups on social media where they could meed, but they don’t offer much more than the occasional networking opportunity. There are also model networks, but they too don’t fill the void.
FStop, a new application that helps photographers find models to work with is a solution. It’s is a lot like Tinder, in that it matches one person to another – photographers with models, and models with photographers who would like to work together.
To begin, users have to simply create an account and fill in their bio and add photographs that they have taken or worked with a photographer to have taken. Then, they add their daily rate, web links and social media profile links. To avoid any issues with fake users, FStop has its own verification system.
If you like our stories, there is an easy way to stay updated:
The way it all works is very simple and familiar. For example, a photographer finds a model he or she likes and either “swipes right” or presses the check icon. Omitting specific users is just as easy. Two users who have both swiped right can then talk to each other to discusss the particulars on the internal messaging system.
FStop goes one step further, allowing users to pay each other securely on the app’s payment system, which uses Stripe to handle payments. Finally, FStop isn’t just for photographer and models. Users who are makeup artists, hair stylists, wardrobe stylists and retouchers can also set up accounts on the application.
If you’re any of these, why not give it a go? Just go to its website and create an account today.
