PhotoShelter (http://www.photoshelter.com), the leading platform providing professional photographers an easy way to store images, create beautiful websites, deliver work, and sell or license photos, today released a new educational guide, Licensing Your Photos For Social Media.

The guide offers a first-hand look at the ever-evolving landscape of social media’s business side — all through the eyes of influential photographers, photographer representatives, design agencies and brands. The goal is to pull back the curtain to ensure that photographers are getting fair compensation for their photos used across social platforms.
Inside, photographers will learn:
- How creative influencers are leveraging large followings to make money
- Tips from a photographer representative on negotiating contracts
- Social media-specific licensing language to consider in their contracts
- What design agencies and brands look for when hiring photographers for social media content
“Photos are the cornerstone of social media success and photographers must be nimble, understand the opportunity each platform provides, and know how to push for the fees they deserve,” says PhotoShelter CEO Andrew Fingerman. “This guide is meant to get photographers thinking about just that.”
