In the latest patch 3.3 of Niantic Wayfarer, can photo studios now be eligible?
I wouldnt accept them. They are more commercial than a real hotspot or a place to be social with others.
I think if it's an art photographer it could be acceptable, particularly if it doubles as a gallery where you can view and purchase the art. If it's just someone who takes photos as a service (wedding photography, holiday photos, etc.) it probably wouldn't meet any criteria.
I never saw such photo studios. Most of thise exibitions are temporaily.
Why would them be eligible?
I think they are making the assumption that photo studios are similar to an art gallery. But most photo studios generally don't have more than a dozen "glimmer" portraits on display with the intention of advertising the service and not as "artwork".
The problem is that these are broad questions, then they pick one example "this is the studio of this photographer that has won so many prices, the building is from 1.600, it has a graffitti by Banksy, why isn't this eligible????"
So they must explain why a general statement about photo studios would make sense.
