Photographer for the new year. Thanks to a strong team at Ooshot we experienced a successful year in 2015 and plans for 2016 are exciting.
January 2015 we released the first photographic booking app. This innovative app enables clients to search and brief photographers online. Photographers use the online quote application and benefit from the secure environment.
We finalized our first round of seed investments by prestigious business angels. In the summer Gianni and Thibaut joined the operating Ooshot team followed by Bertrand, Guillaume and Thierry in November.
We launched « Le Shoot Truck« , a mobile studio designed by NY-London creative duo Craig & Karl. It turned out to be a huge success, with people queuing to have their portrait shot.
Things accelerated. Our success ratio of briefing to shootings climbed up as high as 135%. This means happy repeat customers. Our clients rated the overall shooting experience on Ooshot a 4.8/5. They love the Ooshot guarantee.
We now have vetted 553 talented photographers and 269 shootings have been produced in 2015. Fashion, architectural, portraits and event shootings being the most popular categories.
So what’s next for 2016/Q1? We will be releasing the online payment and rights management tool. Payments and rights management are automated and secured before the shooting. No chasing after their money for the photographer and no usage rights invoice as a post-shoot surprise for the client.
Our job is to make creative imagery a standard for business and to provide clients and photographers online tools to make their image production process as smooth as possible.
Let’s shoot 2016 !
