This APP depends on user submitted content. We want to encourage you to submit your favourite places to shoot to TREKS, your shooting tips to SHOOTING TIPS, articles you have written to ARTICLES and events to our CALENDAR. Any submission you make will have credit to you, your contact details, your website and links to your social media accounts. To submit or get more information of submissions, please use the contact form below or the CONTACT section of the APP.
We are currently in the Beta stage and adding content to the APP and making frequent changes based on user feedback. The APP will have frequent updates in the Beta stage. If you do not have your device automatically downloading app updates, please check your device for pending updates from the Photo Rangers APP.
We have developed this APP out of our own pockets (which are pretty small!) and are offering anyone assisting us in the Beta version and submitting content to have the APP for FREE. We are really glad you are participating and helping us grow and improve this APP. We would really, REALLY, I mean REALLY appreciate your 5 star review in the app stores. This helps us become more visible thus increasing the exposure and content of the APP.
MAIN APP SECTIONS
These are our quick reference cards we developed while conducting workshops. We have included them so that you can have them right at your fingertips when using your camera. We sell these cards printed on indestructible plastic the size of playing cards. They are bound together with a split ring and have a carabiner clip for attaching to your bag. We have carried these cards for over a year outside of our backpacks and camera bags in ALL kinds of weather and conditions – gale force winds, sand storms, underwater and torrential rain. They are still looking good! If you want a physical set of these cards, you can order from here.
Here are some tips submitted by our favourite photographers. This is an area we intend to expand quickly. Do you have a tip that would be good to include here?
Treks were the initial brainstorm for the APP. This section allows users to see a map and tap a location and see a detailed description of that location, how to get to the best spots, what to shoot and any tips for that particular area with photos. When you initially open TREKS you see a list of all places sorted by the closet to your current location. If you tap the pin in the upper right corner, you can see the complete map with all pins. Tap a pin to get a description and then tap the question mark to go to the full article about that location. To make this section even better, we want to know your favourite places. Here’s a Trek Submission Guide to help you write up your TREK and have it included in the APP. contact us to include your TREK!
We believe that to become good photographers, you have to see the world creatively and shoot in ways and subjects you may not always shoot. Our challenges are designed to stir the creative spirit and to challenge your skill. Users can either tag #photorangerschallenge on Instagram or share your photo related to the challenge through the APP. Photo Rangers will be reposting selected challenge submissions on Instagram.
These are articles, stories, reviews and etc. submitted by users. We would love to have your articles, contact us to have them included in the APP.
Each week we will be hearing from an inspirational photographer. We’ll find out what motivates them and why they shoot what they shoot and see their artistic self portrait (no, that’s not a selfie!). It’s a great way to get to know others in the community as well as see what makes them ‘tic’ as a photographer. Here’s an Inspirational Photographer Submission Guide to help you write up your story for the APP.
See our APP users. You can enable the APP to show your location so that you know who is shooting nearby. We appreciate any feedback you have.
The calendar contains user submitted events. Find the nearest Instameet, photowalk, workshop or gallery opening. If you have an event, please contact us to include in the APP.
SUNRISE/SET and TIDES
We’ve included these quick links to find the exact time the sunrises and sets in your part of the world as well as tide tables. You may need to use the good ol’ two finger zoom to see the detail and links inside these sections.
We also really appreciate your feedback. We will continue to develop and improve the APP based on user recommendations and feedback.
AGAIN – we need your content to make this APP the best photographer related APP available. Contact us today with your TREKS, TIPS, ARTICLES and feedback.
