About this project

Find a photographer anywhere in the world on your mobile phone or tablet.
Find a photographer anywhere in the world on your mobile phone or tablet.

Have you ever been on a special holiday and returned home disappointed with the photos, or worse, missing from all of them? 

Pinpic is solving the problem of disappointing holiday photos by building a platform and an app that helps people summon a photographer on demand. As we ramp up towards a Spring launch, we're on-boarding over 700 photographers worldwide.

The idea for pinpic came to Alen during a vacation in Greece. He simply was not happy with the photos he took of this special trip. He realised that he'd happily pay a few euros to have a skilled local photographer take a few memorable photos of him and his partner to take home as souvenirs — that he would prefer that to buying a commercial photograph of the place; gorgeous though it might be, it was just not personal. But how do you find a photographer when you don’t know the city? Or maybe even the language? And how do you assess their work on short notice?

With the pinpic app, finding a photographer for any occasion will always be easy, wherever you are!

Is it safe? 

pinpic is the easiest and most secure way to pay for photographic services (and better for the photographer, too!). While we collect payments in advance, we hold the funds in escrow, until all party's have marked the job complete!

Is Pinpic just for holiday photos? 

We focus on bringing home memorable photos from our customers trip but you can use Pinpic to find a photographer for any occasion!

I’m a photographer. Can I join?

Yes, Pinpic is a free and open platform for photographers. We're inviting photographers of all skill levels and styles to join Pinpic. 

 Did you know "selfies" are being banned in some areas?

Now is a great time to invest in pinpic because destinations around the world are beginning to ban the use of "selfie sticks". Here are a few news stories from the BBC, Conde Nast, and Fortune that explain why.
