Earn money and rewards as a Verified Shotzr Photographer.

Why share on Shotzr?

Having your work reposted should come with a financial incentive, not just an @ mention. So we created Shotzr; an alternative that directly connects the right photographers with digital marketers, and then focuses compensation towards the best and most responsive Shotzr photographers.

You're in control.

You shouldn't have to sign away ownership with your images. With Shotzr, you can share the images you want to share. If you ever change your mind, you can remove your work from the platform at any time.

Connect & earn.

On average, each of our clients uses 40 images/week. When you upload your best work to our library and respond to requests in the app, your work will be downloaded/shared more which means more $$$.

How does being a Shotzr Photographer work?

Download the app for iOS or Android and create an account.

When you add your first image, you can request verification. Once verified, upload images just like you do to Instagram.

Verified Shotzr Photographers are eligible for cash rewards.

Every month we distribute our large and growing budget across our Verified Shotzr Photographers – based on their activity.

Activities eligible to earn cash rewards:
Every image uploaded to the library
Each time your image is downloaded/shared from the library

Downloaded/shared images are worth 5 times as much as uploads.

When our clients need specific images, you will receive notifications for those requests.

Responding directly by uploading relevant imagery = the best chance to have your work downloaded or shared, earning you more $$.

Occasionally, Shotzr handles requests that cannot be fulfilled through the app. We will contact you if there is a request of this nature in your area that fits your skill set.

Respond to requests as often as possible, upload high-quality images regularly, and be consistent! Also, make sure you are adding sufficient hashtags and location data to all of your photos. Hashtags and locations make your images searchable for our clients!

Currently, our users can submit requests for content in specific locations or with specific #hashtags. You can see all of our current requests if you tap More>Requests>Other Requests. If you’d like to respond to a user’s request, simply upload your images and use the same #hashtags & location that were requested. You can notify the user that you’ve fulfilled their request by tapping “Respond” within the specific request.
