We're on a mission to make portrait photography better for everyone
We dramatically reduce the upfront cost, effort, and lead time of finding a trusted local photographer. We rigorously vet applicants for technical skills, experience, and personality so you can book a session with complete peace of mind.
With Shoott, you get to book risk-free and view your gallery before making a purchase because we’re that confident in our photographers’ ability to deliver.
We want you to be able to focus on what you love most: photography. Shoott takes care of all the marketing, operations, customer support, and sales.
Our business model works because of how we aggregate demand at our locations, and we’re proud to offer our photographers a minimum pay guarantee per shooting hour, flexible scheduling, tips and regular paychecks.
Shoott was launched in the summer of 2018 in NYC and has since expanded to 600+ locations across 60+ US cities, running thousands of photo shoots per week. We're proud to maintain a 4.9 average star rating across Facebook, Google and Tripadvisor based on thousands of reviews and recommendations.
Our elite team of talented photographers are freelance contractors who have shot for some of the world's biggest brands, including Forbes, Elle, GQ, The Cut, V Magazine, Buzzfeed and more. We select only the top 2-5% of applicants and screen for amazing technical and creative skills as well as a winning personality.
Our goal is to create the ultimate win-win by connecting clients with their top local freelance photographers through our affordable mini sessions while simultaneously providing photographers with supplemental gigs to support their personal photography business.
