Are Your Photos Newsworthy? Two Bright Lights and SmugMug partner to streamline the process of getting photos featured

Mountain View, California (EastBayDaily) — Two Bright Lights and SmugMug announced today that photographers can now submit photos to hundreds of blogs and magazines through Two Bright Lights using their SmugMug photos.

“We’re very excited to announce this partnership with SmugMug, the leader in photo and video hosting and online e-commerce solution for photographers,” comments Siri Eklund, CEO and Co-Founder of Two Bright Lights. “In our 2010 survey, we found that photographers who submit to blogs and magazines made 73% more revenue than those who do not. This integration will make it easier for photographers to submit their work, showcase their talents and promote their businesses.”

“Billions of photos are shared with friends and family, and the talent here is phenomenal,” added Chris MacAskill, President and Co-Founder of SmugMug. “We can’t wait to see our amazing pool of top-notch photographers leverage this partnership to share even more of their talent with blogs and magazines around the world.”
