How Gloppix works

Gloppix is born with the intent to promote the spirit of collaboration among photographers, both enthusiasts and professionals.

In our view, who uses Gloppix is someone who wants to go out to take pictures, but not alone and then looks for other people. To do so, the user creates a meeting which other photographers can join to share their knowledge and to take pictures together.

Of course you are free to use the service as you prefer, for example: assume that you are traveling somewhere, you could find that a local photographer has created a meeting there, you could join the group and discover some good spots which you didn't know.

On the map you can find 2 kinds of markers with different meanings:

suggeriti
some places suggested by Gloppix where to take pictures whenever you want.
organizzati
represents a meeting organized by a user like you to which you can participate and meet the other users who have expressed their intention to join the meeting. If you want to participate to a meeting go to the meeting's details page and click the "Join" button!
Declaring your participation you will not be committed to participate, but it is a way to say to the others that you'll go and to the organizer that someone will join him/her.

Other options are also availabe, instead of other photographers, you can look for models to improve your skills with portraits.

It is also possible to register as model, in that case a model could create a meeting addressed to photographers, for example to have his/her own photobook or submit the participation to a meeting where a photographer is looking for a model.
