LOS ANGELES, Feb. 6, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — ElsiePic and QwkPic are the 2 leading apps disrupting the photography industry with $5 photoshoots on-demand. Here’s a snapshot of these 2 apps vying for the top spot in the booming crowdsourcing photographer marketplace.

First, there’s ElsiePic which is revolutionizing the selfie. Their motto is: “Why selfie when you can Elsie.” The company’s CEO Tatiana Cooke got the idea while at the Alamo with her family and encountered the age-old problem of who’s going to take the group picture. ElsiePic allows users to see a map of all photographers in the area available to snap a picture at centralized locations.  Users simply select a photographer and then head to the photographer’s location for a photoshoot. ElsiePic supports Android phone cameras and DSLRs, and users can sign up as a customer and/or a photographer. ElsiePic charges a small sitting fee ($3) and instantly transmits the images to the customer’s phone to purchase (1 free pic, $1.99 per pic).

Then there’s QwkPic. QwkPic allows users to see a map of available photographers nearby and simply tap a button to request one. The first photographer to accept a request then goes to the user’s location for a photoshoot. Only photographers within a 5 min walk to users receive an alert. QwkPic’s cofounder River Korn said, “We created QwkPic to help those photo seekers who need a photographer for a ‘Qwkie’. Qwkies are those spontaneous, creative, candid, and fun photoshoots we all want and need while we’re out-and-about or on vacation at photo hotspots and picturesque locations. QwkPic provides this service on-demand and for just $5 at our designated QwkPic Photo Zones.”  QwkPic pictures cost just 40¢ and are instantly sent to users’ phones to select and purchase. The app also helps users discover great photo ops nearby with its Heat Maps feature. QwkPic is offering a free photoshoot with the promo code FREESHOOT.

So who will reign supreme? ElsiePic, the Android app for phone cameras and DSLRs, or QwkPic, the iPhone app for spontaneous on-the-go photoshoots?
