Your talent profile is how your clients discover and book you as a Paxxie Talent. Optimizing your profile is the best way to find business through our app.
Can anyone become talent?
Talent must be 18 years of age or older to sign up for Paxxie, and they must upload a valid photo ID. A government ID helps us keep our clients and talent community secure, build trust in us and fight fraud. This helps us make sure you're really you!
How do I sign up?
Download the app. After creating an account, go to profile and click on talent profile tab (or click on create talent profile on hamburger menu). To create a talent profile, you will need to upload a minimum of 5 photos/videos into your portfolio, but MORE is better! We request that you tag all your photos. In "about my work", talk about your style (i.e. natural vs. posed), your personality and work ethic, specify if you do or do not offer editing, etc. check out our tips for talent! After you create a talent profile, you must be approved by Paxxie before your profile is active and visible to clients.
What is the recommended resolution when uploading to the portfolio album?
Upload photos that are at least 1242 * 2208px. When in doubt, a bigger photo is better. Take your photos in landscape format. Photos in search results are all displayed in landscape, so vertical photos won’t display as well. If your photos are not stored on your phone, you can also use our talent web portal to manage your portfolio album.
What if I don't have my photos on my phone?
We are working a web solution for creating your talent profile. In the meantime, create a talent profile on the app and upload any 5 photos. Then use our web talent portal to upload photos from your laptop! To login, use the same email and password you used for the app. Watch our quick web portfolio tutorial. You cannot log into the web talent portal without creating a talent profile on the app first.
Are there photo restrictions?
We do not accept portfolio or profile photos with your contact information or watermark. During regular audits of talent profiles, they will be removed from your profile.
I can't upload videos longer than 13 seconds. How do I showcase my work?
Please contact us with your YouTube channel and we will add it to your profile.
What is tagging and how do I do it?
Clients search for Paxxie talent based on what type of event they’re hiring for. We use tagging to display relevant categorized results. We recommend at least 5 photos tagged per shoot type. Each photo can have multiple tags. You can tag, upload, reorder and delete your photos via the app or the web talent portal. Watch our quick tutorials here: app portfolio or web portfolio.
What do I use for delivery time?
It depends how quickly you can deliver the photos/videos to your client. Instant means you will upload them within an hour after event end date. You can use the in-app camera feature and upload each photo/video immediately to the event album. You can also use airdrop on your iPhone if your client will allow it.
How do you classify amateur, semi-pro and pro?
- Amateur: Enthusiastic about photography
- Semi Pro: Portion of income from photography
- Pro: This is your main profession
Do you have a recommended hourly rate?
You will see the recommended hourly rate based on the experience level once you start creating a talent profile.
When is my talent profile visible to others?
I got notified that I was approved but I can't search for myself.
You are visible to everyone else but yourself. If you would like to search for yourself, please log out first.
