Insider Info: 2nd Shoot

19 May

Hooking-up with second shooters for many is based on who you know and referrals from fellow photogs. After all, you aren’t just looking for a talented artist, but the whole package; someone who works well with you, is dependable and friendly, accommodating to your clients, and at the end of the day, makes you look good.

Now there’s a whole new way to find photographers, not just around the corner, but across the country: 2ndshoot.com!

Currently in BETA, 2ndshoot.com is planning to go live at the end of May, connecting with 10,000 professional photographers and studios nationwide.

The time is now

If you’re looking to find gigs, this is THE place to be. And NOW is the time to do it. Why?

• TEN THOUSAND photographers being driven to 2ndshoot.com to check out the current list of talent

• Big industry sponsors – including Collages.net, Gary Fong, Vision Art, Emotion, Simply Canvas, Fundy Software, and ThinkTank, and many more – promoting 2ndshoot.com and driving traffic (and offering exclusive members-only deals!)

• A fabulous deal: The first 100 photographers to sign-up receive 3 months FREE!

• A professional, trusted organization that caters to second shooters and hiring photographers alike

• The chance to connect with (and find) photographers with portfolio samples, in-depth profiles and user ratings

Getting Started

Signing up for a listing is quick and easy, and includes:

If you’re interested in working with new photographers – and expanding your portfolio – 2ndshoot.com is a great place to be.

The Backstory

Charles Bordner

2ndshoot.com was created by internationally acclaimed, award-winning photographer and storyteller, Charles Bordner, to help him source talented second shooters for weddings all over the country. When traveling for weddings, he recognized the benefit of having a photographer who’s local, and able to offer know-how and expertise in the area – in addition to saving on travel expenses and logistics. His search became the inspiration for 2ndshoot.com, which has already taken root in South Carolina, where he’s is based, and is starting to take root in cities across the country.

PS: Charles is still searching for second shooters for weddings coming up at the breathtaking Ocean Edge Resort in Cape Cod this June, and another in Orlando, both of which he plans to find through 2ndshoot.com!
