Google+ Communities – Google+ Photographers Community


I have just launched a brand new photography community called Google+ Photographers Community which can be found over on Google+.

Google has only yesterday released a new platform called communities which combines the best of Google+, YouTube, Google Groups and Google Events all in the one place. A community is ideally based on a subject, within the subject users are able to post their content directly to a sub-category.

Since the launch there has been many communities formed however I did notice that there was no place which combined the things in photography that interested me. So I decided to create the Google+ Photographers Community (GPC).

Within GPC I have created the following categories:

No Category – For any unassigned category content

General Discussion – No pictures are posted here. This category is simply about every day photography.

I AM….  – Is a place where new users can introduce themselves to the rest of the community.

Announcements – Any new product announcements.

Rumours – Gear Rumours

Android Devices – Community members post photos and content related to Android Devices.

Apple Devices – Community members post photos and content related to Apple Devices.

Canon – Community members post photos and content related to Canon gear.

Casio – Community members post photos and content related to Casio gear.

Fujifilm – Community members post photos and content related to Fujifilm gear.

GoPro – Community members post photos and content related to GoPro gear.

Kodak – Community members post photos and content related to Kodak gear.

Leica – Community members post photos and content related to Leica gear.

Events+Leigh Diprose will run a weekly photo competition based on a photographic theme. Participants will be able to share their photos directly to the themed Event.

My future plan is to entangle my blog and Google community together with future events and google hangouts posted weekly to my YouTube channel and here on the blog.

The hangouts will talk about the latest in photographic gear as well as review some of the latest product. I can’t wait to see where this leads. In the first few hours almost 200 people have joined the community and the engagement between the users has been fantastic. ***Update*** 359 Members!

If you have any questions on the new community please let me know in the comments.

Until Next Time – Happy Shooting
