If you've ever had a fruitless Google search for a photograph of a particular place or a specific building somewhere in the world you'll appreciate this app. If you are looking for something very specific, you'll often find that the photo you find won't be quite right. Maybe it isn't the right angle or it's slightly out of focus or have unwanted people in it. It may also be under copyright. That's if you can find it at all. Chances are, you'll probably make a decision right there and then that it will just have to do but it doesn't have to be like that. ProxyPics is a new location based photography app for Android and iOS that can solve all those problems. 

ProxyPics is one of those 'first of its kind' apps that shows up from time to time. It's a totally unique 'on-demand' system for commissioning location-specific photos whether they are shot in the next suburb or on the other side of the world. The app features an online marketplace and matches the need for specific location-based photos with local photographers who are ready and willing to take the shot you need - wherever it may be in the world. What's more, the app is very easy to use and you can do everything from the comfort of your own smartphone.

So, how does it work? Well, once you've downloaded the app and signed up, all you need to do is to enter a reasonably detailed address - you can find the location using the in built map - as well as a few details about the job -and then submit your request. Straight away your order will be posted to users in the vicinity and, within minutes, you’ll receive a photo taken just for you. Then all you have to do is to pay the low fixed price fee and save the photo to your camera roll. ProxyPics leverages patented technologies that ensure accurate job placement so you won’t have to worry about getting the perfect photo. You can even nominate the type of shot that you need whether it be a profile photo or a shot from across the road. Photographers must commit to take the shot within 30 minutes and all photos must come from the taker’s camera app, rather than from their photo library. This ensures up-to-date photos. No hassle...instant results.

The obvious beneficiaries of an app like this one are Real Estate agents for whom it's essential that photos are available for publication fast, clear and up to date. Banks, Lenders, Value Assessors and Dispute Resolution professionals will also appreciate accurate photographic evidence when verifying the current state of land, property or conditions without having to hire a designated photographer of their own. News & Broadcast Media will quickly be able to access images for features or breaking news and the app will also give Researchers & Teachers instant representations of locations anywhere in the world.

This app gives all photographers the chance to make extra cash just by doing something that they already love doing. If you're a ProxyPics user you will be notified immediately via GPS and notifications when a photo assignment is available near your location. You can accept any nearby jobs, take the pic, submit it and get paid online for your work in minutes. You can work whenever it’s convenient for you and wherever you are and be your own boss. Never before has it been quicker, cheaper, or simpler to get timely images from anywhere in the world. The possibilities are endless. If you can point to it on a map, you can have an up-to-date photo in minutes. ProxyPics describe themselves as the Uber of Photos. They're not far wrong.
