Try to choose a username that you can identify with. Make sure you use the same user name you use on other photographic platforms .. this will help indentify you and photo ownership later if copright questions come up.
Some persons might be Joe90 on gurushots and LondonBlue on some stock photo site such as `Shutter Stock` .. this could make persons think you are borrowing photos from other photographers and you can get your account deleted.
Uploading your photos… although gurushots gives you the possibility to upload from Instagram.. we strongly advise against this.. Instagram was designed for mobile phones.. you might not be loading your best resolution from Instagram.. so we advise upload directly from your pc.
Take a look at the Challenges available… you are free to enter as many or a less as you like… take a look at a Challenge and it´s closing date .. if you feel you have something to enter .. press the Submit Photos Button.
When choosing a challenge to enter make sure you take the 2 minutes extra to read the description which was written by the organizing Guru or Gurushots .. you want the Guru to choose your photo … it is necessary to know what he/she is looking for.
Check also if this is a 1 photo or 4 photo Challenge. If the Challenge has reached a certain time limit you might need a key to enter.
