A month ago, WPPI and Rangefinder teamed up with Animoto to feature WPPI members’ Instagram sizzle reels — short video slideshows — on their page. Since then, they’ve featured six amazing photographers, all of whom have created distinctive videos that match their photography beautifully. We wanted to share their work on our site and show how photographers are marketing with video on Instagram.
