PhotoNetCast #42 – Social Media for Photographers

Social Media for Photographers


In the show we frequently approach the topic of social media and how we are using it. Even here on the show, PhotoNetCast is active on twitter.

My guess is that besides the common downfall of "wasted time", there aren’t many disadvantages for a photographer to be active with social media networks and share their knowledge with a wider audience.

To help us with our discussion, we invited Jack Hollingsworth (@photojack on twitter). Jack, a photographer for over 30 years mainly in the stock photography business, is one of the most active photographers on the popular social network, and explains how he uses it, shares some tips on how to best use it, and why being absent will mean "not existing" in the near future.

Before we got into the main topic, we had the opportunity to discuss some relevant news topics like the announced acquisition of Picnik by Google, the fact that Canon was absent from PMA and the polemic disqualification of an awarded image from Word Press Photo awards 2010.

If you enjoy the show and appreciate our effort, help us spread the word about PhotoNetCast.

And thanks once again to Jack for his time on this one.
