In this episode, I talk to Jimmy Lozowsky, the co-founder of ViewBug! ViewBug is a massive platform where users can join photography contests, meet new people, and improve their skills. Jimmy and his business partner, Ori Guttin, founded ViewBug many years ago and are now incredibly successful in the photography industry.

Jimmy and I talk about:

  • Photography contests and whether they’re for everyone or not
  • The beauty of smartphone photography (+ mobile photography tips!)
  • What it’s like running a big photography business

& much more!

As Jimmy says in this interview, the prize is just a bonus. There are many other things you can get by submitting your photos to contests. You can get to know new artists, challenge yourself in ways you haven’t before, and much more.
