“PhotoSesh is truly an app for everyone. Whether it’s for a casual party or a property listing shoot, it’s easy to find nearby talented photographers who are ready to help out,” commented Tia Ventresca, Franchise Sales Coordinator at RE/MAX of New Jersey.

If group selfies and Uncle Dan just aren’t cutting it for those special occasions, never fear: the sharing economy is here…. With PhotoSesh, a cutting-edge new app that just hit the market, anyone who needs professional photography can easily connect with photographers who deliver. That’s right: PhotoSesh makes it just as easy to find a photographer on-demand as it is to get a ride with Uber, except users can choose a photographer from a list populated with simple criteria like date, time, and category… so think AirBnB. PhotoSesh, which launched earlier this month at TechCrunch Disrupt NY, hopes to shake things up by creating the new standard for hiring a photographer.
With rates between just $30 and $75 an hour, capturing the perfect moment forever is now only an app away. The PhotoSesh App helps find locally sourced, highly-rated photographers who are nearby and ready to start capturing keepsake moments. With photographers typically charging hundreds of dollars for a session, why is PhotoSesh so affordable? The truth is: even the most in-demand photographers have free spots in their schedules that they want to fill.
With PhotoSesh, professional photographers get the opportunity to offer their openings at a discount instead of letting those slots go unfilled. Users get available photographers listed by distance and ratings; once a photographer is selected, users can then track their photographers on the PhotoSesh map to ensure they make it to their destination (which comes in handy in crowded locations). PhotoSesh takes it one giant step further by also offering “iPhoneography” aka: affordable iPhone photographers ready at - literally - a moment’s notice through a peer-to-peer feature called PhotoSesh LIGHT. If ever at a crowded festival, tourist area, or a graduation ceremony, a 30 minute PhotoSesh LIGHT for $10 can be useful in-lieu of asking strangers to take a mediocre pic on the spot.
The booking process is free and mobile-friendly: PhotoSesh is currently available on iOS as two separate apps (customers and photographers). It’s a one-stop-shop experience: users can check out photographers’ portfolios, ratings, view up-front pricing info, and pay - all right within the app. The service includes delivery of digital images and usage rights. The possibilities for how this new service will be used are endless - from realtors who need professional property shots to moms and dads who want to capture a special birthday celebration. “PhotoSesh is truly an app for everyone. Whether it’s for a casual party or a property listing shoot, it’s easy to find nearby talented photographers who are ready to help out,” commented Tia Ventresca, Franchise Sales Coordinator at RE/MAX of New Jersey.
PhotoSesh ™ - is an On - Demand (or Scheduled) Photography Discount Platform that uses GPS and calendar syncing to connect to nearby photographers at incredibly friendly rates ($30-75/hr). Photographers can fill up openings in their schedule that would otherwise yield zero income. Users can PhotoSesh Now or PhotoSesh Later by booking up to 90 days in advance (includes digital printing rights and usage rights).
There are 18 categories of photography to choose from and thousands of photographers across 12 metro areas.
For an app based on the principles of the sharing economy, it only makes sense that founders Chris and Shari believe in giving back: each PhotoSesh photographer is asked to fulfill charitable missions throughout the year by keeping it local, within their communities. The project has already met with success: CarePacks4Homeless was an initiative created by the friends and family of the PhotoSesh Team. Though every event needs a great photographer, the team behind PhotoSesh believes it’s just as important for those who want to make donations to have an easy-to-reach spot to do so.
As PhotoSesh continues their charity launch campaign throughout May, look for local PhotoSesh photographers capturing the moments at nearby Non-Profit Events in the community.
