How do I get started?
You’ve come to the right place! Start by creating a Kurbside Photographer account from the signup link you’ve received in your invite email.

Now you’re ready to start making Photoshoot offers!
How do I add or remove photos to my portfolio?
Add photos by clicking the “Edit Portfolio” button in the top right corner of your profile. You can either drag and drop or add photos manually from your computer. Make sure all photos are at least 1600px wide. Photos sized for web (or less than 1MB are recommended for the fastest upload time). If you’d like to remove photos, click the “Edit Portfolio” button. Hover over a photo until the little trash can icon appears in the corner. Click the trash can and choose “Yes”.
Can I rearrange photos in my portfolio?

What is an Offer Card Cover?
An Offer Card Cover is what other users will see when you make an offer. This is also referred to as your “Offer Card”. You can see what your “Offer Card” will look like when you click the “Offer Card Cover” link when you are in the “Edit Portfolio” mode. At this time, photos cannot be repositioned on the Offer Card.
How do I start making money?
Start by filling out your Kurbside Photographer profile. Users want to see you, your awesome portfolio, learn about your experience, and get in contact! Users have the ability to search for photographers near their location, but the best way to start making money is to be active on Kurbside by making “Photoshoot Offers”. A “Photoshoot Offer” is an offer you place on a listed property. If your offer is accepted, the user will contact you and initiate the photoshoot. And, Boom! Money in your pocket.
How do I make a Photoshoot Offer?
Using the main navigation, navigate to the “Properties” section (designated by the little house icon). In the “Properties” section, users will list addresses that need to be photographed. Properties are listed in order of proximity to your location (you can search another location by using the search field on the far right). When you find a property that interests you, click the “Make an Offer” button on the Property’s overview page. Insert a price offer for photographing this property. What will you charge? This is totally up to you. Make sure to read all the details about the property and any notes from the user. Once you’ve submitted your offer, the user will immediately be notified. If your offer is accepted, they will contact you and initiate the photoshoot!
