Oct 2, 2017 | SNAPP News

We have just added 3 new guides to our collection bringing our total destinations to 30! Take a look – we’d love to hear what you think and hear how you are getting on using our SNAPP Guides in the field.

Joining our collection we have Northumberland by David Taylor, Cambridgeshire by Andrew Sharpe and Shanghai by Oscar Tarneberg, our first foray into China.

Northumberland (UK) by David Taylor – 46 spots and 85+ images

Cambridgeshire (UK) by Andrew Sharpe – 40 spots and 120+ images 

Shanghai (China) by Oscar Tarneberg – 25 spots and 50+ images

Bonus spots for SNAPP Guides – Lake District

Phil Buckle has been out and about again in his home territory and has added 20 new spots to his Lake District SNAPP Guide. If you’ve already purchased this guide, these spots will be added as a bonus. To make sure you can view them online, you’ll need to sign out and back into the guide. If you had previously downloaded this guide to your phone you will need to delete it and re-download it to refresh the guide and make new spots visible (they will appear greyed out if you don’t follow these steps).

SNAPP Pro James Grant’s Peak District locations inspire moving “73 in 73” challenge

We’ve always been great advocates of sharing photography locations for the greater good of the photographic community and here’s a heartwarming story of just how powerful that can be. This moving video follows Jason & Tracy’s challenge, 73 in 73, inspired by SNAPP Pro James Grant’s book “Peak District Through The Lens”, to photograph 73 locations in the Peak District in 73 days. Their aim is to raise money in memory of their baby daughter Emily who was born prematurely at 28 weeks but sadly passed away on 16th February 2017 after a short but brave battle. To follow the final few days of their challenge and support their chosen charities, follow this link:

SNAPP Guides User Photo of the Month

The most rewarding part about creating an app for photographers is that we are now starting to see how our followers are using SNAPP Guides in the field and planning for photography trips. It’s wonderful when our community shares images and sends us feedback about how the app helped them get the images they hoped for. Here’s a wonderful example by SNAPP Guides user, Fernando Krasovitzky who put Hougaard Malan’s SNAPP Guide to Patagonia through its paces and captured this beautiful image on his travels – thank you Fernando!
