Zenfolio launches Photographer Central, an online photographer directory
Photographer Central, a new service from portfolio-hosting site Zenfolio, aims to help professional photographers and clients find each other. Available only in the US, the online directory allows for potential clients to find photographers based on specialty and location. Photographers can create a single listing for a yearly fee of $400 ($300 now) or $500 (currently $400) for multiple listings. Working photographers can also use the service to find those offering their services as second shooters.
Those seeking a photographer will find the site much like Yelp, with the ability to sort results by price, location and style. There is no fee to search or browse photographer profiles, and no registration is required.
Zenfolio Launches Photographer Central: The Industry’s Most Comprehensive Directory of Professional Photographers Available For Hire
With the ease of a better search tool, photographers and clients can now focus on creating beautiful images together
June 24, 2014 - Zenfolio, the award-winning, all-in-one-photography hosting service, has announced the immediate availability of Photographer Central, the most comprehensive online directory of professional photographers of all genres. By allowing the visual profiles to speak for themselves through a clean, informative interface, potential clients are able to quickly find the perfect photographer according to their location, budget and preferred style.
'The photography industry is fragmented, and part of the problem is the absence of one definitive source for hiring the right professional,' said Alex Peyzner, Founder and CEO of Zenfolio and Photographer Central. 'In building this new resource, we've set out to change the way people find photographers. It simplifies the process by providing clients with the complete and visual photographers' profile information they need to make a decision, and provides photographers the marketing support their businesses need so they can focus on the art of photography.'
Photographers are faced with an overwhelming list of tasks just to get their work seen and considered by potential clients – tasks that rob them of precious time. Photographer Central simplifies the time-consuming marketing process. Dedicated marketers and developers work on SEO, SEM and demand generation to drive a constant flow of potential new clients.
Anyone looking to capture a portrait, host an event or plan a wedding will tell you that finding the perfect photographer can be an exhausting process. Photographer Central makes the search easy. Potential clients can filter photographers according to their preferred location, budget and style. They can save 'Favorites' into a group that can be easily accessed at a later time. Clicking through to a portfolio brings up a simple, streamlined presentation of key information and a photography portfolio. From there, they can compare, contrast and immediately contact the right photographer.
Photographer Central allows users to always search for free and does not require registration.

Photographer Central is immediately available via www.photographercentral.com. As a limited time promotion, photographers can add their businesses to Photographer Central at a special price of $300 annually for a single listing or $400 annually for a multi-pack (allows up to five separate listings).
