“Monegraph has allowed me to monetize my work on Instagram and make it available to brands and publishers”
Chelsea Galinos is a photographer and student at Parsons. Her work was covered in the New York Times when she delivered a copy of her painting to Hilary Clinton at a campaign stop. "I was fortunate enough to meet HC and she signed my painting for me and after that publishers were coming up to me asking for photos," she said.
Since then, she has seen her Instagram follower count grow tremendously. Now publishers reach out to ask for her work to be used in editorial and commercial contexts. Since our launch she has used Monegraph as a way to provide professional licensing for these posts on social media. "So far, Monegraph has been a great platform to help me handle these request." We're happy to hear that and we think more and more companies are going to want to use images that are posted socially.
