Below are a few of the most frequently asked questions (FAQ) that I receive and their answers. There is no such thing as stupid questions, so don’t be shy.
Q: How to I participate in “Dadtography”?
A: It’s easy to participate and there are two primary ways to participate. The easiest way is to simply add the hashtag #dadtography to your posts on Instagram or Twitter. Doing so will automagically make those posts display on Dadtography.com.
The second way is to apply to be a Dadtography website contributor. As a contributor, you can post your own blog posts on the site, including photos, videos and traditional (written) blog posts.
Q: What do you mean by “Dadtography”?
A: Simple. Dadtography.com is a visual discussion, among and between dads and families, about what it means to be a dad.
Q: Why not “Momtography”?
A: Well, #1 – I’m a dad, not a mom. And #2, Momtography.com is for sale (for around $2500) if you’d like to setup your own mommy crowd-sourced photography site. If you do, let me know. Maybe we can work together sometime.
Q: What are the “rules” for Dadtography.com?
A: I don’t have many rules, but rule #1 is to be supportive and build each other up, not tear each other down.
Q: Do I have to be a dad to submit a photo?
A: No, you may be a son, daughter, spouse or significant other and submit photos of your dad or partner.
Q: What types of blog posts does Dadtography allow?
A: Approved Dadtography.com contributors will have a great deal of flexibility when it comes to what they can post. Naturally, we’d like to see posts about being a dad and it would be great if there’s a strong visual element (photos, videos) to them.
It really is up to the contributor on what topics to contribute to Dadtography.com. We just ask that the chosen topics be positive, meaningful and relevant to dads, families and (where possible) photography.
