slack_for_ios_upload (6)

The Carolina Hurricanes are the Pro hockey team for the North and South Carolina region as well as parts of Virginia. They currently have their home games in Raleigh, NC in the PNC arena right near our home office!

We have recently partnered with the Carolina Hurricanes to help them kickoff their 2015-2016 season. We created designs highlighting what the Hurricanes are all about.

On their opening night, they will be giving away free hats to every fan that comes out to the game. If you’re in the Raleigh area, be sure to come out and join the #redvolution!

We can’t wait to see the photos that Caniacs will create with the package.

Happy October!


Happy October everyone! Here at Photofy, we have kicked off October with a BANG. We just celebrated having 10,000 likes on our Facebook page. We’re also about to announce a big feature of our app that we think our users will love!

The start of October has also brought huge amounts of rain to our office. Hurricane Joaqin is passing us and we have seen rain for the past 3 days here. Needless to say, we are ready for some sunshine!

All in all, we love the month of October minus our crazy amounts of rain. We’re excited about creating some new fall designs and Halloween ones so you can make your fall photos look great.

We can’t wait to see what else October has in store!

Practice Safe Selfies


Have you seen the latest news? More people are dying from taking a selfie than being killed in a shark attack. From finding out this recent news, we’ve come up with some safe tips to make sure you don’t die taking your next selfie.

  1. Before taking you selfie, look both ways and make sure you are in a safe spot.
  2. Make sure you have your phone firmly in your hand to avoid dropping it and causing a distraction.
  3. If other people are going to be in your selfie, make sure they are focused.
  4. Make sure you are familiar with what button to press to take the photo.
  5. Make sure your feet are planted firmly on the ground and not taking the selfie in motion.

We think if you follow these tips when taking a selfie, it will better protect you from dying.

Gearing Up for Fall


Fall weather has finally arrived! It’s time to say goodbye to the summer heat and hello to the fall breeze.

The team at Photofy has been creating new fall designs for you to use. We also have our partners creating new ones as well, so the options you can choose from are endless.

Here are some tips for how to capture fall foliage from your phone or tablet:

  1. The softer the lighting, the better. The best time to take photos of fall leaves is at sunrise and sunset.
  2. Use the grid lines on your device to help keep the image straight. The grid lines also help you use the rule of thirds.
  3. Instead of using the zoom and having the photo be more pixelated, move closer to the subject you’re trying to capture.
  4. Try different angles. Up close pictures of leaves can turn out to be beautiful.

Try using these tips when taking your fall photos. As always, tag #photofy so we can see your awesome pictures!

Innovate Raleigh 2015

On September 9th, Photofy got to participate in “Innovatours” with Innovate Raleigh. “Innovatours” were self guided tours people went on around Downtown Raleigh exploring start up businesses from a variety of industries.


We absolutely love being located in Downtown Raleigh and were lucky enough to show people on the tour our new office and what Photofy is all about. The team also got to explore other offices that were participating in Innovate Raleigh.

All in all, it was a great night for the team connecting with new businesses and meeting new faces. We hope to participate in Innovate Raleigh next year to create even more local relationships with businesses!
