Very often people ask us - how was Splento born? Here’s a little story from our Founder and CEO, Roman Grigoriev.

Founder and CEO, Roman Grigoriev

In my family I am known as the “lastminute.com” man - not because I founded lastminute.com, but because I do everything at the 11th hour. So you can imagine that when I wanted to book a photographer for one of our parties the same day - I failed miserably. That was the first instance when I thought there must be something wrong with the professional photography industry - why cannot we book professional photographers on demand?

However, that was just the beginning of my love story with photography.

The second slap in the face was when I did manage to block out some time in my calendar in advance to find a photographer. Having spent half an hour looking at various sites, another half an hour comparing portfolios, then emailing for quotes, then figuring out if a particular photographer was available on the day I needed them… In the end I gave up.

I passionately hate wasting time browsing the internet. If I know what I want and need - this day and age I expect it to be accessible in three clicks. So I thought - why shouldn’t booking a photographer be as easy, as booking a cab?

Another major upset was the range of quotes I got from different photographers, when we needed team photos. Anything from £50 per photo to £1,000 for the whole set and there wasn’t much difference in quality between photographers. Yes, some photography work is art, but the vast majority of professional photography is commodity business, so I couldn’t quite understand - why such a huge difference in prices?

The tipping point, however, was when I used Google Keyword tool to look up how many people are searching for professional photography services. Millions each month. Despite the ubiquity of smartphones and cheap DSLR cameras, there are still millions of events happening each month around the world that need professional photographers. And the vast majority of clients have to endure what I have endured? I knew we could do better! So this is how Splento was born.

So what’s Splento?

In three words: it’s Uber for professional photographers.
