NowCandid is an innovative event photography platform that combines cutting-edge technology with user-friendly interfaces to revolutionize the way you handle event photography. We offer multiple workflows to cater to a range of event types and settings, enabling you to capture and share memories in a streamlined, efficient manner.
The only required piece of equipment to use NowCandid is your camera! Workflows like the Selfie Check-In Workflow or the FaceMatch Import Workflow don't require any additional equipment. If you want to use our other workflows, you'll want an LTE Apple iOS or Windows Tablet, though technically any Windows device can be used with the NowCandid Capture & Upload app, as well as any iPhone.
Virtually any Canon or Nikon will connect and work with the NowCandid app, as well as a few new Sony models. For the LTE Apple iOS or Windows Tablet, we recommend a Microsoft Surface Go 2 (or newer) with LTE to upload images as they are taken and collect data. For Apple iOS, we recommend a 10th Gen 10.9-inch iPad with LTE and 256GB of storage. Click here for a complete Gear List.
When using the QuicPics Program, the photographer is paid a fee from the organization upfront to text digital images to guests on the fly. There is a $0.20 upload fee for each image you take an upload, regardless of how many subjects are in the photo receiving the image.
When using any of our other Programs or Workflows, there are no other fees or subscriptions. Really! NowCandid only makes money when you do.
Customers can view their images through a personalized Image Gallery, which is automatically generated and sent to them. Here's how it works: Once the photos are taken and uploaded to NowCandid's platform, our system automatically matches the photos with the contact information or face reference depending on the workflow used. Then, an email and text message (based on the contact info provided) is sent to the customer with a link to their Personal Image Gallery. This happens within minutes of the photos being uploaded! In the gallery, they can view all the photos they are in, purchase photo products, purchase digitals downloads, and more!

The Tap-A-Face Workflow allows subjects to tap their face on a tablet and type in their phone number after their photo is taken. This links their face to their contact information, and every subsequent image uploaded with their face will be matched to them and added to their Personal Image Gallery.
To use the Scanner ID Workflow, you'll need to generate unique Scan Cards for each subject during event setup. The subjects scan their card to enter their contact information. You'll also need a camera tethered to an LTE tablet and a scanner to scan the Scan Cards before taking photos.
The Selfie Check-In Workflow is user-friendly, intuitive, and fun for subjects. It allows them to upload a selfie and their contact info by scanning a QR code at the event. This reference image is then matched with the event photos, ensuring accurate identification and quick delivery of Personal Image Galleries.
In the Type & Take Workflow, subjects input their contact information directly into a tablet before being photographed. This initiates a session and all subsequent photos are tied to the entered contact info until a new session is started.
