Even though “social media influencer” sounds like a made-up job, it looks like it has something in common with “real jobs” after all. If you fail to do it right – you will face consequences. And influencer Luka Sabbat is facing serious consequences after failing to promote Snapchat Spectacles on Instagram. After breaching the $60,000 contract he signed, he is now being sued.

Daniel is a self taught freelance photographer from Frankfurt, Germany. His photography is inspired by nature, focusing on the outdoors, adventure and northern lifestyles.
With 602k Instagram followers, Daniel falls into the category of “social media incluencer”. Daniel’s work is absolutely amazing and it’s easy to see why he’s so popular on Instagram – but what is really interesting is his final advice for photographers who would like do something similar.

I really dislike it when photographers aren’t treated with respect for their time and talent. It happens way too often sadly.
Justin Rosenberg recently fell into this situation. He was recently approached by a media personality that wanted to take advantage of her position. The funny part is that she had less online engagement than he did so there was legitimately no value to the over-inflated claims produced in the beginning.
The conversation below is exactly how NOT to approach a photographer when you want someone to produce content for you.
Instagram has released a new set of tools made for determining the users’ age. If you claim that you’re over 18, you will have to provide the platform with a video selfie so that AI can take a good look at you. Alternatively, you may also be asked to submit a photo of your personal ID or have adult friends vouch that you are, indeed, older than 18.
A Pulitzer Prize winning photojournalist has been fined $1000 for taking photographs of migrants in a camp in the Canary Islands, Spain. Spanish police allegedly confronted photographer Javier Bauluz and attempted to prevent him from documenting the conditions of the camp under Spain’s unpopular ‘gag law’.
At the time, police warned Bauluz he would be fined for “disrespecting an agent” and “refusing to identify himself”, despite the photographer’s insistence that he had handed over his identification.
There are some very daft suggestions and tutorials on TikTok. As I discovered when I tried a few of the photography hacks, there are several that it goes without saying that you just shouldn’t try. This one might take the cake though. After watching a video of a ‘hack’ where a photographer appears to deliberately scratch his lens with a rock to create a ‘cool effect’, one viewer actually copied it and fully destroyed her camera lens.
Photographer and TikToker Illumitatiana posted a video of her using a rock to scratch the front of her Canon 50mm f/1.8 in response to a viral video made by Andres Videography where he appeared to do the same to his lens.
“You wouldn’t say that to your daughter, but she still hears it online every day”. That’s the message coming from Dove’s latest campaign to educate parents about the negative messages their teenage daughters are subjected to on social media.
As we’ve grown to expect from the brand, it’s a hard-hitting video, using real women and their daughters. What makes it interesting, however, is their use of deep fakes.

“An intimate image full of warmth and humanity”, titled ‘Kebabiyana’, and taken by Indian photographer Debdatta Chakraborty, has won the overall prize of Pink Lady® Food Photographer of the Year 2022.
The photograph was taken on Khayyam Chowk, an ordinary Indian street in Srinagar by day that transforms into a buzzing food hub at night, as vendors fire up charcoal ovens and fill the air with the smoky aroma of grilled delights such as wazwan kebabs, the popular Kashmiri street food.
