Frequently Asked Questions
How do I join?
To become a part of the GuruShots network of professional photographers there are just two quick steps:
1. Fill out the Sign Up form above
2. Create your profile (note: you must complete your profile to be listed)
The whole process only takes 2-3 few minutes. To create your profile you will need to upload a photo of yourself (profile photo) and a few photos from your portfolio.
What kind of feedback will I be expected to provide?
The kind of feedback will vary but typical feedback is around things like composition, exposure, lighting, angle from which the photo is taken, etc. The feedback is in free text format and is entered in a box next to each photo. The idea is to provide insight in to how you would have taken the photo.
How much can I earn?
Customers pay $8.95 per photo and typically upload several photos per job. GuruShots takes a 30% commission and you get the rest credited directly to you GuruShots account. Ultimately, how much you earn really depends on how many jobs you are willing to take on and how good a job you do. If you do a good job you are likely to get many repeat customers and even loyal amateur photographers who view you as their Guru and seek your feedback on a regular basis for many of their photos.
How do I get paid?
All professional photographers in the GuruShots network must have a PayPal account to get paid. If you don't already have a Paypal account, it takes two minutes to set one up. Go to: www.paypal.com. Once you enter your PayPal information in your GuruShots account you will be able to withdraw the balance from that account directly to your PayPal account and from there to your bank account.
When will my account be credited?
Your account will be credited when you finish providing feedback and click on the Job CompletedÂ button.
