I love taking photos and sharing snapshots of my life with other people. I’ve no desire to get into photography professionally, for me it’s simply something that makes me happy. To see those figures above makes me incredibly proud, around 1 in 100 people who come across my photos on Unsplash download them. If I want to, I can utilise that proven exposure for working with brands. Just as brands pay Instagrammers to post a photo with their product in on their feed. This in an unexplored and untapped side to having an Unsplash profile but I can see how it could be a future money maker for some photographers, after all these aren’t photos once seen and then lost in a feed, these are photos that if approved on Unsplash are searchable and downloadable – meaning infinite organic exposure for a brand. See a gap, something that no one else is doing and fill it. Do it first and do it well.
