ABC News Reporter and Foaper?

Who is a photographer? If Aristotle and Plato lived today that’s the kind of question they would be asking each other. After all, since smartphones came around everyone is potentially a photographer. Aristotle and Plato themselves would be taking great shots while walking around in Athens.

Sometimes we at Foap witness remarkable things about photographers that would make Aristotle and Plato surprised. Yesterday, for example, something really funny happened. ABC 8 News, A TV station from Richmond in the US, featured Foap, “the app that turns your cell phone photos into dollars”. You can watch the spot here below.
