Dear Photographers!

age fotostock has been developing a new image collection called SnapMobilefoto: fresh pictures shot with mobile devices.

As our CEO Alfonso Gutiérrez explained this last week in Yammer, the private social media platform for age photographers:

“It’s an opportunity to submit your Smartphone/tablet devices images, your photos made with the electronic tools that we all have at hand and use daily. The collection will be formally announced soon, but before making it public we wanted to share the concept with you, our photographers, so that you can take a part in developing it with us”.

Mobile device photography calls for a more conceptual and experimental photography rather than the descriptive and straightforward typical shooting style that is abundant. With mobile devices, you have at your fingertips hundreds of filters and shooting possibilities, you are free to be unpredictable and surprising in your personal interpretation of the reality that you have in front of your eyes. Imagine, experiment, change your style, get wild and shoot, shoot, shoot….  

Images submitted are currently internally tagged as coming from mobile devices. When this category becomes substantial and popular enough with both photographers and clients, we will launch it as a separated collection.

These images can be submitted as RF, and therefore need to have MR/PR´s, or as RM as "editorial use only" when MR/PR´s are not available.

We contemplated for months over whether to have an Android or iPhone submissions app that could be accessed by anyone with a smartphone, but as we are not expecting the category becoming an uncontrolled crowd sourced one, we decided to keep to the submission standards that are already in place.

When seen online, thumbnails of the images will display the SnapMobilefoto icon, a little camera, on the top right corner.

We hope that you will try it out soon. We’re looking forward to hear your constructive opinions, and to seeing your on-the fly pics!

31 years in the same office location proves patience and determination, but at one point the office space that for many years had managed color film processing, digital scanning, paper catalog storage, etc, was simply no longer suitable for the present requirements for IT developments, communications, websites and virtual business models. This is why age fotostock decided to move to a new location.

P99 (99 Pallars Street) is the new centre for professionals in 22@ district, Barcelona, a district of excellence with clusters of nearly 2,000 highly dynamic firms in the fields of media, energy and design. 22@ is the most important project of urban transformation in Barcelona in recent years, transforming two hundred hectares of industrial land of Poblenou into an innovative district offering modern spaces for the strategic concentration of intensive knowledge-based activities.

Sprung from a determination to unite the business community in the area, P99 is a modern building which conveys and sustains well-being. It is spacious and bright and is located in a site which provides a high quality of life due to both the vitality and the tranquility of its surroundings. This makes it an ideal setting to develop forward thinking projects and business activity.

“At some point,” says Alfonso Gutiérrez, CEO of age fotostock, “you have to be within the culture you belong to, and as we are well immersed in developing the technology suitable for close to 90 distributors around the world, we are delighted be moving into an environment alongside our contemporaries in similar fields.”
