Chris Gampat The Phoblographer Zeiss 85mm f1.8 Batis lens review image samples (10 of 11)ISO 4001-160 sec at f - 1.8

One of the biggest problems that almost any photographer faces is how to get someone to notice them. This is tough enough to do beyond convincing someone to pay them for photos–for most photographers at least. The most honest trust about this industry (and almost any industry) is that it’s about who you know more so than what you know. But that shouldn’t discourage you from spreading the word of how great your work is. In fact, if you’re working so hard to create beautiful photos and you’re not letting anyone know about it, then what’s the point?

Here’s how you can cut through all the rest and make others more aware of the type of work that you do.

Photography app EyeEm is one of the best ways for a photographer to organically get discovered. You’ll also notice the feed is much different from Instagram. Your feed is filled with handpicked talent and albums so new talent can emerge. If you want to view what your friends are contributing, then you’ll need to specifically go to the “following” tab.

Browsing through the work of the artists on the platform introduces you to some of the similarities with VSCO and Instagram. For example, while lots of folks use their phones to shoot photos, there are many that use dedicated cameras and then upload to the service.
