I've been on a good photography kick the last few weeks, especially around sunrise. This app is super helpful for finding and tagging the best places in your city to get great views/photos - well done @ay8s!

Think of ShutterSpots like Yelp for photography locations. This could be hugely useful if you're visiting a new city, I always find myself googling for top 10 lists of photo spots so something directly made for this purpose is ideal... Really needs a nice community to get started, right now most of the spots are in and around San Francisco. I hope that PH provides a nice diverse seed of initial locations :)

I found a lot of use for Shutter Spots. I think the thing I like the most about it is when traveling. It'll help you find cool places to not only take a photo of, but great places to visit, too :) Very useful for traveling and I'm excited to see even more content appear from a bigger community! Great work @ay8s!

Nice UX. I found only one spot near San Jose, probably because few users here and not much activity. How do you plan to solve this chicken egg problem

@rahulc_23 Thanks! Definitely could open up the distance a little in these early versions. I'm hoping over time more spots will be added, I also plan to get in touch with well known photographers who may not have time to add their own spots to feature their favourite locations. Certainly a tricky one to solve. I have also thought about using Flickr/500px/Instagram as a source of spots, for instance using a hashtag on Instagram to add a new spot or finding popular shooting locations from Flickr to pull in. All that said it does add alot of complexity and possibility for duplicates.
