Flipboard Joins Forces With Communities For Its Photography Destination: Zenfolio, History Club, PhotowalksTV and MoreFebruary 22nd, 2022
REDWOOD CITY, Calif., Jan. 31, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Today, Flipboard kicks off a new partnership with Zenfolio, an online community of 500,000 professional photographers that showcase their commercial work to sell their photos and services. Zenfolio brings its vast library of quality content for photographers to Flipboard, while offering its members new ways to broaden the reach of their portfolios. This is the latest in a string of community-focused collaborations Flipboard is engaging in to bolster its destination for photography enthusiasts.
Flipboard also joined efforts with History Club, Jason Steinhauer’s popular club on Clubhouse, for a new cross-platform conversation series about history and photography. Clubhouse provides the audio experience and Flipboard houses companion collections, curated by Steinhauer, that allow listeners to go deeper on each subject in their own time. The next conversation will take place on February 24 about civil rights photography, and the topic for March 24 is women’s suffrage photography. The first conversation took place last week, about Holocaust photography, with special guest Michael Glickman.
Moreover, Flipboard is working with PhotowalksTV, a streaming travel photography series on YouTube hosted by former USA TODAY columnist Jefferson Graham. Besides sponsoring the third season of PhotowalksTV, Flipboard co-hosted an in-person photo walk for photo enthusiasts in San Francisco that got so many signups Flipboard added a second session for the overflow. Participants shared their photos to a Group Magazine on Flipboard, creating a collection of imagery of each walk.
