At ImageBrief, we always want to see the work of top-notch photographers. When photographers refer their friends it’s all the better because they’re growing and strengthening their community. That’s why, for our latest referral contest, we decided we’d give away a camera gear voucher good for $5,000 to the photographer that referred the most approved photographers by the end of November.
First and foremost, we want to thank all of the awesome photographers that referred their friends, wrote a blog post, sent a tweet, or posted to Facebook. Seriously, it warms our hearts to see you help grow your community. So, with that said, who’s the lucky winner? Read on to find out…
And The Winner Is…
Huge shout out and congratulations goes out to photographer, Federico Grosso! He referred a grand total of 158 approved photographers! Nice work Federico! We caught up with the Argentinian photographer—who shoots everything from landscapes and travel to corporate events and sports—to see just how exactly he referred so many quality photographers.
How’d you refer so many photographers with your referral link? What tools did you use to get the word out?
“I used Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn. I posted a link to a blog post I did on many Facebook and LinkedIn groups and also made some blog posts on some photography forums. In the last ten days, I used a Facebook campaign to promote my blog post.” (Photographers take note, this is some serious marketing acumen.)
What’s your experience been like so far with ImageBrief?
“I love ImageBrief! I like how dynamic it is. Everyday I get in and review my emails looking for the new briefs. It’s so different to any other stock sites. I also try to produce some of the shots if I’m available and the end date of the brief allows.”
Why did you want to refer your friends to ImageBrief?
“I think that ImageBrief offers all photographers a great way to showcase their work to possible clients and the team at ImageBrief really makes a difference. Also for the $5,000!”
What gear do you think you’ll be getting with the $5,000 voucher?
“I’m planning to upgrade my computer and camera gear—changing my Mac Mini for a Macbook Pro and my Canon 7D for a 5D MK III.”
While Federico far and away referred the most approved photographers thanks to his social media and community savvy, we have to give a huge shout out to a few photographers who were hot on his heels up until the end of the contest. Kevin Zaouali, Ken Kaminesky, and Leigh Diprose were also atop the leaderboard thanks to blog posts each of them wrote where they shared their unique referral links.
Just because our big $5,000 referral contest is over doesn’t mean we won’t still reward you when you refer your friends. Each time one of your referrals sells an image on ImageBrief, we’ll hook you up with $50! So go ahead and grab your unique referral link and keep going!
