MyWed updates: kids, family and portrait photographers!
Nope, this is not a joke. MyWed is becoming a website for not only wedding photographers but for family photographers as well!Do not scold us right now, just breathe out 🙂 This is a weighed decision that we made more than a year ago. Back then, we planned to release it in a year or two when MyWed would gain a critical mass of active wedding photographers in all countries. However, the coronacrisis has dramatically changed our plans, and we have decided to such a transformation now.There are several reasons for such serious changes, and it is hard to say which one is the most important:1. Diversification is for good. The year 2020 clearly demonstrated this to all of us. We've seen how quickly the wedding photography industry can collapse. Though the children, family, and vacation photography markets are growing annually and it would be foolish not to pay attention to it.2. Expansion of the site's specialization will allow getting away from the flawed model of “one-time” clients. A couple after having chosen a wedding photographer on MyWed, would more likely return for a maternity photographer first, and for a kids or family photographer later.3. Most photographers do not shoot only weddings. So having all their specialized portfolios united in a single profile on a website is convenient—it’s easier to update the portfolios and is more profitable financially (the PRO account will be applied to all specialities).4. Finally, we’ve got a little bit tired of weddings 🙂 We've already seen it all 🙂 It is a good time for MyWed to change and move on. And I hope we continue this journey together :)So, on your page, you can activate any of these categories:- Engagement
- PortraitAfter the category activation, please specify your rate for this type of photography and upload at least 10 photos to make your portfolio visible in the directory of the category.You can hide a category if you find it unnecessary (all uploaded photos will be saved) and activate it when needed.Rating in each category is calculated separately from now on. It means that a photographer’s rating in the Wedding category does not influence their rating in the Kids category.In the photo feed mywed.com/photo you can now choose categories of your interest or leave the Wedding category only. In this case, the website will remain the same, the site of wedding photographers 🙂In addition, we have slightly updated the profile. Now you can see a photographer’s followers, and who he/she is subscribed to 😱If you've read this far, we don't even know ... It seems, you really love reading… Or us ... 🙂 But we definitely love you! 😍We were in a bit of a hurry, so probably, something won’t work or won’t work correctly the first time. We would be grateful if you write to us about it in this forum topic or on the feedback page – mywed.com/feedbackP.S. You would really help us by telling family or children photographers you know about MyWed 🙏
