App sends professional photographer to your location within two hours of processing your request.
Professional photographers for any type of event, be it a corporate party or fashion photoshoot can be summoned at a click of a button thanks to a new app called Splento from tech entrepreneur Roman Grigoriev.
On-demand app Splento will send a professional photographer to a requested location within two hours of processing a request. The company follows hot on the heels of on-demand taxi service Uber, following a growing trend for start-ups that offer consumers immediate services.
The service, which launched in early 2015 has already serviced thousands of clients. More than 6,000 of jobs have been processed through its system, which currently boasts more than 100 vetted professional photographers. “You don’t need to book ahead of the event any more,” says Roman. All you need to do, is book a photographer for required number of hours and they comes to your desired location. You can even book up to five photographers at a time, if you fancy feeling like a celebrity.
The price structure is extremely easy to follow, £49 per hour (you can book as many hours as you like) or £249 for a whole event, which is their most popular option at the moment due to the high demand of corporate events taking place in London. All photos will be professionally retouched and ready to be sent to its customers within 48 hours. There is no need to wait for weeks or even months anymore. No cash touches hands, as customers pay via the app/site during the booking process. Technology is crucial to the service, which uses a proprietary algorithm to ensure that supply and demand ratios are balanced.
“We’re cheaper than you can find anywhere else,” claims Roman. “We are bringing professional photographers directly to you at a fraction of a price without compromising on the quality”. Splento is currently available within M25, however bespoke events can be booked for any location of your choice. “Once we have proven that this unique platform works efficiently, we’ll export it to other countries,” said Roman.
