Taproll gives you an instant, intimate connection with amazing photographers in your city through life-size imagery. It's simply the best way to find and hire a great photographer.
San Bruno, CA (PRWEB) July 19, 2011
Taproll today announced the availability of its geospatial media search engine which vastly simplifies the task of finding and hiring photographers in over 10,000 cities worldwide. Using the application, consumers can easily flip through large full-screen photo galleries from hundreds of photographers in their local area, enabling them to make informed and confident hiring decisions. The service is currently in beta and is accessible at http://taproll.com.
"Taproll gives you an instant, intimate connection with dozens of talented photographers in your area," says founder and CEO Michael Quoc. "Hiring a photographer should feel less like sorting through search results and more like viewing a photographic gallery. We've designed Taproll to provide this life-like experience for hiring local photographers."
As the number of professional and semi-professional photographers has exploded around the world, the tools for connecting these photographers with consumers have not kept pace. When searching online for a photographer, today's consumer is confronted with a sea of search results, paid link directories, and inconsistent website experiences.
Taproll addresses these issues by providing a single, unified search index of photographers around the world and making this data accessible via a simple and efficient interface. The application enables users to swiftly browse through hundreds of high-resolution photographer galleries and zero in on their favorite artists. Users can then access comparison tools, reviews, and pricing information to make an informed hiring decision.
For photographers, Taproll offers a refreshing change from the current generation of paid photography directories. Taproll is free, and provides high-resolution image hosting, inclusion in the company's geo-targeted search index, and a fully-featured business page that is already optimized for web search engines like Google. In fact, many photographers are considering using Taproll as their primary business page, as it provides many of the core messaging, analytics and portfolio features of a standalone website. The company also plans to announce a set of enhanced features which will be available to premium subscribers.
