Portrait of Rotterdam: On the road with the Snapshooters and the Samsung Galaxy Note8

To test the new features of the Samsung Galaxy Note8 and produce unique content, Samsung travelled to Rotterdam with the Snapshooters and visumate for a weekend. A trip that exceeded all expectations.







Are two cameras better than one? This is definitely the case with the Samsung Galaxy Note8, because the integrated dual camera enables even more precise photography. This feature needed to be promoted in the Snapshooter community and on Samsung's channels when it was launched. Consequently, from 22nd through the 24th of September 2017, 32 Snapshooters headed to Rotterdam together with Samsung and visumate. During the course of a three-day workshop they were given the opportunity to get to know the new product better and to test its features.

On the first day, immediately after the portrait workshop with photographer Philipp Fröhlich, they set off on a photowalk through Rotterdam. Professional models were then captured in expressive portraits in front of modern buildings and a unique view of the skyline.

On the second day, the Snapshooters divided into an urban group and a landscape group. The former was guided through the city by local Instagrammers and explored photo spots such as the Kubushaus, the Blaaktower and the Bojimans Museum. The landscape group began the day by photographing the sunrise at the Kinderdijk windmills. Afterwards, they took great portrait shots of foxes at the Amsterdamse Waterleidingduinen.

Altogether, 167 posts and 510 Instagram stories were created during the Snapshooter trip. The produced content reached about 8.2 million followers and consequently exceeded all campaign targets.

I really liked the challenge of trying something completely different and attempting portrait photography for the first time. Plus Rotterdam was a real eye-opener for me! It could hardly have been any better
