The very first time I used Blink, I found a photographer in Cairo who did an amazing job handling an assignment that got upset by civil unrest in South Sudan. Blink helped us find a great photographer, fast.
Mark Murrmann, Photo Editor at Mother Jones - USA
Dan Krauss
Photographer - USA
Blink has been incredible for connecting with new editors, and reconnecting with editors I've worked with in the past. Since signing up, my assignments have almost doubled in frequency. I highly recommend it to any freelancers in the photography world.
David Degner
Photographer - Egypt
After finding me on Blink the editors from Mother Jones sent me to Kenya and Sudan for a story, even though I’m based in Egypt. I probably wouldn’t have gotten the job otherwise.
Jon Levy
Editor - England
This is the tool I have always dreamed of. Better than being everywhere at once, is the ability Blink gives me to find a qualified and dependable professional wherever I need them and as soon as I do.
Lorenzo Tugnoli
Photographer - Italy
Le Monde got in contact with me on Blink on December 20th. I was probably the only photographer in Kabul, 5 days before Christmas. The day after I was out on assignment with them!
Laetitia Ganaye
Manager at Agence VU - France
Blink allows me to connect with my network from one single platform efficiently, multiplying the opportunities of assignments for VU photographers.
