Picquest – App Helps People Find a Photographer

Remember the old Yellow Page ads which reminded you to let your fingers do the walking when trying to locate businesses like photographers in your area. Fast forward to the smartphone age. You are still using your fingers but now it will be to tap open an app like Picquest.


Just like other location services like Yelp, Picquest will show you the photographers in your vicinity. Furthermore, you can also view any selected photographer’s portfolio to see if he or she might be who you need and communicate with them.

The service requires photographers to sign in.  The free app is currently available for iPhones only but the Android version is in the works.  It’s relatively new but has great potential not just for photographic services but as a social connection for those who share this interest.
