Press coverage

"One of the more convenient features is the integrated payment system, which lets both photographers and models compensate one another for their work. Powered by online payment system Stripe, it’s a simple and secure platform for making sure each party is compensated. When it comes down to it, FStop doesn’t offer anything more than what other similar services do. The difference is it brings the elements together in a much simpler interface that helps keep the focus on getting photoshoots scheduled."

"...the pool is already a good size, allowing you to potentially find models to work with much quicker than by going the Model Mayhem, Agency, or Craigslist route. I was talking to a buddy on the east coast over the weekend who was giving the app a try and actually booked a shoot with two out of the 5 models he reached out to after just a few messages back and forth."
July 11, 2016
"FStop is an attempt to simplify and streamline the experience, and unlike sites such as Model Mayhem or One Model Place, they aren’t charging you upfront for simply contacting a potential model. FStop does have a review and rating system in place that should help weed out those who would abuse the platform. The site security team is also apparently rigorous in their account evaluations."

"Of course this isn’t the first app to try to match models and photographers, and in a way, it’s quite clever because the two are forever looking for one another, and so frequently never have their meet-cute. Other apps and services that try to facilitate this generally do so via a messaging system, but this is more ego-favorable."
July 12, 2016
"One interesting aspect of the app is that it has its own integrated payment system that uses verifications to help take some of the sketchiness out of paying a model or photographer for his or her services."

"If you are not working on behalf of a large agency, finding the perfect model for the session is not easy, not to mention stylists, retouchers and makeup artists. Using the service FStop, everything will be within our hands."

"Je hebt een te gek concept en zoekt daarvoor naar een goed team. Maar hoe kom je nu eigenlijk aan een goed model? FStop is een soort Tinder-achtige app, voor fotografen en modellen."
July 12, 2016
"Co ciekawe, FStop posiada zintegrowaną i bezpieczną platformę płatniczą, która pozwala na rozliczenia między współpracującymi osobami bez obaw o to, iż któraś ze stron zostanie oszukana. Na rynku znajdziemy już podobne rozwiązania, jednak twórcy FStopa odrobili jedną ważną lekcję: połączyli multum informacji i pozwolili przejrzyście pokazać je w profilu. Jeżeli jesteś fotografem, modelem albo nawet wizażystą, to wydaje mi się, że nic nie szkodzi, abyś spróbował swoich sił na FStop. A nuż któraś z osób będzie pracować z Tobą więcej niż jeden raz."

"A quick way to scan through models and photographers to find somebody you want to shoot with, much quicker than most of the other options available."
July 13, 2016
"After a shoot, you can leave a review for someone you found through the service. FStop is also a middleman for payments, allowing transactions to be done through the platform — payments don’t need to be made through the service, though."
July 13, 2016
"For photographers and models just starting out in the business, building a portfolio by soliciting help online can quickly get… creepy. Craigslist aside, services like Model Mayhem or even direct messaging on Instagram can help forge connections but a new site called FStop is looking to streamline the process still further with a Tinder-style approach."
July 13, 2016
"Encontrar modelos para una sesión no es la labor más sencilla para un fotógrafo primerizo. Dependiendo de las circunstancias, ni siquiera para un profesional experimentado con una extensa lista de contactos. Este es además un problema recíproco, y es que no siempre es fácil encontrar un fotógrafo de calidad para una sesión personal o la confección de un book. FStop aspira a resolver esta situación conectando a fotógrafos y modelos como quien liga a través de Internet."
July 13, 2016
"FStop, a new application that helps photographers find models to work with is a solution. It’s is a lot like Tinder, in that it matches one person to another – photographers with models, and models with photographers who would like to work together."
July 14, 2016
"While there are plenty of social media groups and professional networks that have also been created for this purpose, FStop sets itself apart by taking inspiration from Tinder to match users who will likely be suited to working together. "
July 15, 2016
"У разі якщо дві людини висловлять взаємне бажання працювати один з одним, FStop автоматично створить для них онлайн-чат, де вони і зможуть домовитися про співпрацю."
July 17, 2016
"Let’s see how the idea of connecting photography professionals to a single platform works. Sounds promising to me if you ask."
July 18, 2016
"The free site is open to photographers, models, retouchers, makeup artists, wardrobe stylists and hair stylists of all skill levels, notes PDN Pulse. After signing up, you add a bio and a portfolio and set your pricing. FStop’s verification system will confirm that you are who you say you are."
July 18, 2016
"FStop is a new app that’s aiming to make putting together photo shoots super streamlined for all parties involved."
July 19, 2016
"This tool may have a future, provided the emergence of a mobile application and that everything will work based on GPS phone location - then, no matter what city we are in, we will be able to find people to collaborate with."

"FStop aspira a resolver esta situación conectando a fotógrafos y modelos como quien liga a través de Internet. "

"Fstop may not necessarily be anything original, however what Fstop is doing is taking something which before was a very convoluted drawn-out process and streamlining it, making it simple and quick, especially with its integrated payment system (which uses a service called Stripe, which is very secure) and large variety of description filters, so that you can find exactly the person you’re looking for. It is also mobile friendly, which a great bonus for those who are on the move and wish to find work quickly in a new location."

"Si cette application reprend les codes du speed dating, elle constitue un moyen de mise en relation photographes-modèles qui pourrait s'avérer efficace. F-Stop met en avant la sécurité du processus, en contrôlant les identités et en permettant aux utilisateurs de laisser un commentaire sur la fiche de la personne rencontrée. De plus, un système de transactions via la plateforme a été mis en place même si les paiements peuvent également être réalisés en direct."
July 29, 2016
"In fact, the profile setup is very big on verification. You'll need a phone number associated with your account and they go even as far as you taking a selfie of you with a picture ID. This is all for extra proof that you are who you indeed are."
August 10, 2016
"FStop fosters a sense of community, where people can build professional relationships. The FStop blog features stories about artists who have used the platform."
