Where it all began
A few years back my husband and I took our first trip to New York. A friend of mine was a photographer based in the city, and we were his ‘test customers’ for a few photos along Brooklyn Bridge for his new website. Ironically the hour provided us with 10 images that we got to keep – they featured the most spectacular New York cityscape on sunset. Instead of candid selfies or trusting other tourists to get photos of us together like we usually do when we travelled – in these 10 images we were both in the frame of these very special and iconic memories.
This was the idea behind Travelshoot.
Where it all began
Since that original shoot in 2012, we wanted to make the same experience possible in cities across the world. So we set out to source an incredible team of talented photographers not only in Australia, but across the globe. We’ve spent years building (and more importantly testing out) a global network of local photographers who enjoy what they do, know the best local spots, and agree with my mission to make travelshoots affordable.
Our big break
The ultimate launchpad was timely – we won the My Shark Tank Australia competition that recognised Travelshoot as Australia’s favourite new business concept in 2015. The morning after the TV episode went live, we woke up to an inbox full of excited customer enquiries – and it’s been an exciting whirlwind since then. Since our launch the aim has remained the same – create a unique experience for travellers and help them capture holiday memories in an extraordinary way.
Who we are
Based on the Gold Coast in Australia - we’re a friendly bunch addicted to travelling and doing whatever it takes to get special memories captured for our clients.
