We’ve picked up a few exciting developments happening for PhotoShelter members throughout the week, and not to be left out, we created a few of our own.
Jacob Maentz is a documentary photographer based in the Philippines who, over the years, has felt compelled to document what indigenous Filipino cultures remain throughout the archipelago. Now he takes his project to Kickstarter in hopes of fundraising $10,800 to back his travels around the Philippines to gather more images and stories. Jacob’s work was previously featured in PhotoShelter’s 14 Most Dangerous Places for Photojournalists. Jacob says he learned key planning and marketing strategies for this project from PhotoShelter’s Free Guide: Crowdfunding Your Photography Project.
“In the past decade, technology has changed the way photographers have created their work,” says photographer and journalist Kike Calvo. “But we should not forget, that beyond information and careers, there are humans with unique lessons to share.” For that reason, Kike created The Photographic Chain, which aims to conduct short 5-minute interviews with various players in the photo world. The interviews are posted on Kike’s blog – learn how you can be interviewed on his Facebook page.
