Today's Stock Photos Don't Work
Finding the right stock photography is fragmented, expensive and time-consuming.
The stock photo industry uses mass archives of irrelevant, outdated, pre-shot photos. (We've all encountered that embarrassingly bad stock photo.) Right now, searching for the perfect authentic, modern photo is like finding a needle in a haystack: it's inefficient and sometimes impossible.

Already Raised with Regulation CF
In the past, only wealthy investors and venture capitalists had the opportunity to buy shares in private companies like Google and Facebook before they went public. That changed. As of last year, the JOBS Act allows anyone to invest in private companies. In light of this, we’re considering filing with the SEC to let our own photographers and buyers purchase shares in Snapwire.
What has driven Snapwire's success to date is our incredibly powerful creative community. I feel our platform pushes photography forward as an opportunistic art form, and as an industry as whole. We are now taking that collaboration to the next level by allowing you to invest in our community. We know that a lot of photographers and photo-buyers are fans of what we’re doing and might like the idea of owning a stake in the company while we’re still relatively small.
The initial funding has been amazing. So far we've received over 300% of our initial goals when we 1st started our efforts this year.
Shooting for success,
