Travel creates memories that you’ll carry with you for the rest of your life– and often, the most precious physical items you come home with are the photos you take on the trip. But taking photos of your travel party is often the last thing you want to do, and you end up with more photos of plants and cafes than of you and your loved ones.
Travelshoot is an international photo service that connects travelers with professional photographers in destinations around the world. We’re excited about this service, because it makes having a professional photoshoot in a foreign country easy and accessible. You don’t have to speak the language, nor rely on a company operating in the country: you just give Travelshoot your information and they take it from there. It represents a fantastic way to help remember all the colorful details from your trip.
How it works:
1. Book your shoot
The process starts when you find your location and book your shoot. A simple booking form helps the service pair you with a local professional who can take the best photos for you and your family, and they use a five-step process to qualify photographers in their network. You can feel confident that your photos will look great, and the photographers give you an insider’s tour of the city during the shoot. You’ll come away with some beautiful new memories that you might not have experienced without a local showing you around.
2. Meet your photographer
Once your information is collected, you’ll be matched with a photographer and receive their information and sample photos so you can have a good sense of what you’re getting. Travelshoot sends you a detailed itinerary for your shoot with everything you need to know ahead of time.
3. Embark on your personalized shoot
On the day of your shoot, your photographer will meet you at a designated meet-up point, ready to guide you around their city and take natural, beautiful photos of your travel group. There’s no cheesy posing involved: just organic, fun-filled shots against beautiful local scenery.
4. Get your photos
Within 48 hours, you’ll get a sneak peak of your shoot, and within a week you’ll receive the whole album of your Travelshoot images in an online gallery for you to download.
Where can you book a shoot?
The short answer is that Travelshoot has a network of photographers across the globe. You can look up your specific destination, but they have the big tourist locations covered. Australia, Europe, North America, Asia, and Africa and the Middle East are all represented.
Occasion-specific travel shoots
Travelshoot is a great option for big events that you want to commemorate, such as weddings, elopements, proposals, honeymoons and other important occasions in your life. They have wedding and engagement packages that cater to small-scale events, and you can book your shoot quickly for a flat fee at a fair price. Of course, you don’t need a special occasion in mind to use the service! “Just-because” travel photos are a great option too.
