Onsite event photography doesn't really do digital yet.
can get a print done there-and-then, but it's not common
post-crisis, it's expensive, and you get a physical photo
that you can't easily share via your phone.
So I propose a widget with bluetooth, wifi, 3g internet
which allows the photographer to give the
customer a copy of their photo on their phone.
1. they can enable bluetooth and have it auto-discover
2. snap a 2d barcode which takes them to the URL of the
3. friend the photographer on facebook (ideally in the
queue) and get sent some kind of message (could be
with per-event accounts). Could find the page again via
4. send a text (premium?) to a number and get the photo
I think the barcode+short url on a sticker/in a text would
win (on the back of a 6x4 print?), as the target page can
have facebook etc integration.

The widget could easily be created with a Raspberry pi
a usb touchscreen.
||or they can attach a USB cable between camera and phone.
||Only if the phone has USB on-the-go, and the camera
has usb mass storage mode, and you don't mind
directly connecting your entire camera and storage
to some random person's phone with no safety net.
||iPhone doesn't have any kind of USB port, let alone
OTG or an app to download from a client device.
||Do professional photographers share the digital
image? I got the impression that they sold only
prints, to get revenue from each copy.
||I was thinking a lower reasonable res version could go
on their phone, and the full res (or print) available to
buy on the site.
