Ratings and Reviews
Elitism. Only accepting applications that fit their style.
I thought this was supposed to be an app for people within the photography/modeling industry to network, but it seems like the content of the app and their providers are limited to a very specific “look.”
I’m a photographer and i intended on using this app as a possible Instagram alternative and to extend my network of models that I could work with in my area. While submitting my application I chose 6 different photos I did on two separate portrait photoshoots with two professional models. Within a couple of hours of submitting the application I received an email stating that my application was denied because the editors felt my photos were not what they wanted for in their “collection.”
And that’s exactly what is wrong with this app. It’s NOT a networking tool it’s simply a feature page. All of the photos featured have a specific high fashion studio style look to them. I’m guessing my photos were denied because they were shot outdoors and use natural light? Either way it’s clear that if you don’t fit in with their look, you won’t be able to utilize the app in anyway.
Don’t waste your time.

Your application was declined because it didn’t meet some of our submission requirements. With a basic account you still have an access to most of our features including search and messages. Please see our app description for additional details.
Not what it claims
Everything everyone is saying here is correct. I’m a fine arts photographer and I would not at all consider this a creative platform for professional networking in the Arts. This app and the portfolios within lack creativity as it claims to market it. The work is all generic, think ‘Urban Outfitters does Art.’ Absolutely limiting in their creative freedoms and mundane in content. This IS the app for you if you define IG photos as art. Also, something tells me being White is a part of the application? Of course you’ll write back with “absolutely not” but the content reflects it and I don’t feel the need to repeat that fact. Garbage, don’t market yourself as an art app or even in relation to art.
Creative platforms should not exclude creative minds
Very young app to be showing discriminating and and showing signs of elitism
I’m a photographer and a painter, thought this app would be a good resource to help in finding talent to assist in my practice. I was very disheartened to receive an email very shortly after creating an account claiming that my account was declined because their editors didn’t feel I what they wanted in a their collection. Very confused as to what they mean by this since they’re the ones providing a service to me, the consumer who is choosing to use this app. I’m not signing up to allow them to use my career as a way of promoting their service.

Hey Paul! Artstel is a platform for professionals in the photography and fashion industries. We don't have a category for painters and this is why your account was declined. Please see our app description for more details.
