If you haven’t heard of Periscope, you should definitely check it out!
If you follow Photographers & Creatives, I’m sure you’ve seen or heard about this new little thing call Periscope. Periscope is an app from Twitter where you can broadcast LIVE from anywhere in the world, anytime you’d like, for as long as you like for FREE. Your followers can tune-in to watch you live, or they can watch a replay of your video for up to 24 hours after your live broadcast.
Even though Periscope is gaining major visibility, so far the app has only been accessible to iPhone users. Enter Telescope, a third-party Periscope app for Windows Phones, which expands the service's live streams to an entirely new audience. You can't actually broadcast your own “Scope” from the Telescope app yet (the developer says it's coming), but you can sign up for Periscope and view other live feeds from within the app. It will do for now until Twitter releases the official Windows Phone client.
Now you have no excuse not to try it! Come IPhones, come Androids! LOL!
I joined a few weeks ago, and am absolutely obsessed! Many photographers who inspire me, “Scope” regularly and it’s great to see them in their natural element. They share useful information and “behind the scenes” footage from their sessions. If you are a photographer, creative or business owner (or just want to check it out for fun!) it’s an AMAZING app to utilize for your business and also to gain insight into businesses you're interested in!
I’m still figuring out all of the ins-and-outs, but I’m totally into it! If you tune in live, you have the ability to live comment and interact with the "Scoper" and fellow viewers right then and there.
I’ve been working up the nerve to do my own “Scope”. As many of you know, I am a behind-the-camera type of person, but I think it’s time to make my Periscope debut.
Please give it a try and follow me at @KendraRPhotography to see sneak peeks into my business, behind the scenes + my life outside of work! Join now, follow me and expect to see my first "Scope" within the next day or two!
I’m brand new to this, so feel free to let me know what you’d like me to talk about. What would be most beneficial for YOU to see me share on Periscope? I’d love to hear it in the comments!
