SNAPP Guides has launched in the App Store!
When you travel for photography, every second you have in a new destination is precious. SNAPP Guides is a new app for photographers created by photographers to ensure you get the most out of every photo shoot, however long you have to spend out with your camera, and whether you’re photographing locally or holidaying further afield.
SNAPP Guides is a photography location finding app, available on iOS (and coming soon on Android), that offers a collection of destination guides for the travelling photographer. The guides help users discover incredible new places to photograph plus give them inspiration, creative and local tips to ensure they take their best shots ever once there.
The guides are packed with information for the photography enthusiast. As well as guiding photographers to some of the top photographic and scenic spots, SNAPP Guides provide the best times and conditions, itinerary planning tools, creative and gear tips, as well as practical advice to help you photograph like a local from the minute you arrive.
The SNAPP Guides app is intuitively and beautifully designed, containing quality images and accurate, up-to-date information provided by leading pro photographers who are invited to co-create guides based on their intimate knowledge of a location, as well as their photography expertise.
Once downloaded to your mobile or tablet, guides and maps can be used on and off-line. Browse for inspiration or search specific spots, then simply click on your chosen location for gps co-ordinates or to open in Google or Apple Maps. Add a spot to your personal itinerary, search for locations nearby and read the author’s detailed description of when to go, how to get there and how to get the most out of a location photographically. The app provides sunrise and sunset times, weather and will open a spot directly in The Photographer’s Ephemeris app to help calculate how light will fall on the landscape.
The initial range offers 12 destination guides, including London, Dubrovnik, Yosemite and Oregon Coast, with 10 more available from July covering locations in Europe, the Americas and Africa. Many more destinations are in development and SNAPP Guides are adding to their portfolio on a continuous basis. In-app purchases of the guides range from $3.99 to $14.99 with some guides available free to users.
