Social Curator Contributing Photographers

Social Curator is a fast-paced, high-energy, startup experiencing rapid growth...and we wanna grow even faster! Social Curator is on a mission to help 10,000 small business owners build a 6-figure business by 2023. We are building a platform filled with marketing resources that allow business owners to explode their own growth on social media and we want you to be part of the fun!

Are you a photographer interested in sharing your photography talents with the members of Social Curator?

If so, keep reading - we’re looking for several Social Curator Contributing Photographers and you might be one of them! 

You'd be a great fit if...

  • You are a talented brand/lifestyle photographer *go on Buttercup, it’s okay to brag!*
  • You are interested in frequently contributing sets of images to the Social Curator Photo Gallery
  • You have a passion for helping other small business owners grow their business with your stunning imagery  

Who we're looking for:  

Your acceptance as a Contributor will be based purely on the quality and desirability of the image gallery you present, and your continuation as a Contributor will be based on the quality and desirability of the images that you regularly supply.

What images we're looking for:

  • Flatlays, vertical, and horizontal options
  • General lifestyle images
  • Industry-specific photos
  • Holiday-related images
  • Seasonal photos
  • Geographical locations
  • Food and drink images
  • Workspaces and work supplies

We do not purchase images with people in them if those images would require a model release (ie - a photo in which their face is clearly shown). In addition, we do not take images with tattoos, wedding rings, or other very personal markings. Similarly, we do not accept images with distinct brand elements, logos or copyrighted design elements on them. It is your responsibility to ensure that everything submitted for inclusion in the Social Curator Photo Gallery is free of any possible copyright infringement.


Location releases are up to the contributing photographer to ensure they are shooting in a location in which photography is allowed. In addition, any propping will be at the contributing photographer's expense unless otherwise arranged.

Image Quality:

At Social Curator, we pride ourselves in providing only the highest commercial quality imagery for our subscribers. Final deliverables will need to be fully edited, hi-resolution images.


As a Social Curator Contributing Photographer, you will be asked to review and sign a contract that grants Social Curator the right to distribute, license and use your images within the Social Curator membership. All Social Curator image licensing is royalty-free for their personal or business use.

The photos you submit will be available in perpetuity to Social Curator and its members as long as Social Curator is in business. There will be no photo credit given to the Social Curator Contributing Photographer.


If you are accepted as a Social Curator Contributing Photographer, we will ask you to set up a free Pixieset gallery where you will be able to upload any and all images that you wish to be considered for contribution. Our team will curate a final collection of “favorited” images based on what we think will be appealing to the members of Social Curator. You will have one gallery labeled “Review” that you will reuse for each image set submission and one titled “Ready to Purchase” that will be for final downloadable files.


A recurring flat rate per 20, 35, or 55 image set will be set between our team and the Social Curator Contributor photographer. That rate will remain the same regardless of the type or theme of the image. For context, our average rate is: 

  • 20 images: $450
  • 35 images: $785
  • 55 images: $1250

Each Contributing Photographer will be solely responsible for their expenses. Upon delivering images, the Contributing photographer will invoice Social Curator for the appropriate amount due. Payment will be due within 10 days of the invoice date.

Application Instructions:

You made it to the end! Does this sound like you? *Yay! We’d love to have you.*
