Ever wondered how mobile photos and videos shown in newspapers, on the news, or on celebrity blogs were obtained? Do you find yourself at newsworthy events with your smartphone without the know-how to make money from your unique photos? Depositphotos has just created a way for professional and amateur photojournalists to make money with their newsworthy photos generated by mobile phones. Their new mobile platform Clashot earns photojournalists money, opens up a discussion platform to help photographers be at the right place at the right time, and share relevant experiences while on the go.

Clashot is a new mobile platform not just a mobile app

Through the Clashot community, photojournalists will uncover the latest news and photo news discussions, so they can pinpoint trending topics, locations, and celebrity sittings. Community participants will share experiences while sharing relevant and fresh content with stock photo buyers. Photojournalism is unique not only as a skill set but as a licensing model.

Editorial photos which include sports activities, concerts, celebrations, demonstrations, public speaking, accidents, celebrities, products, and anything that you consider worth notice are highly sought after in any news-related platform. News agencies can not have photojournalists at every single global event throughout the day. They depend on the serendipitous sittings of amateur and professional photographers who happen to be at the exact place a newsworthy event is taking place.

People are wanting to pay for these editorial photos. So why not make money while with our mobile phone? Clashot provides a free mobile app for anyone with an iPhone, enables content up load and opens up the photos for immediate sale. For the photojournalist, the content uploading process is instant and easy. For stock photo buyers looking for newsworthy and fresh content, they just have to browse through licensed photos on Clashot and buy. It is a win win situation and ensures news is photo documented at any time or in any place.

Committment to mobile photo licensing

Depositphotos is working to define new licensing for mobile photos. The unique ability that smartphone users have to take instant photos, upload, and share warrants a review of licensing for this type of photojournalism. Depositphotos is committed to ensuring that mobile photos are licensed correctly and that licensing is relevant for this new medium.

Depositphotos is one of the fastest-growing stock photo agencies that offer stock photos, stock video, and stock vectors with over 150,000 images uploaded daily from international contributors.
