Who are we?
We are a start-up project driven by enthusiasts who work day and night around the globe. We aren’t traditional corporation with office buildings and yachts for managers. We love traveling, photography and life.
For a while now we have been thinking about how to share our experience and know-how with other photographers around the world. Even though there are hundreds of different galleries, social networks and services, none of them met our criterias and needs. So we decided to create our own application designed for photographers by photographers, a space to share up-to-date information, experiences and raise funds for new expeditions by selling photographs and travel guides.
“For many years now, I have been organizing for my clients, interested in traveling and photography, inspiring and original expeditions focused on discovering exotic countries through the viewfinders of their cameras. Together, we have visited six continents and places as diverse as the major US national parks, South Africa, Iceland, Peru, New Zealand or China. From every trip, I bring home not only amazing memories, but also beautiful photographs. My clients often ask me how I took specific pictures and one day as I was telling them about exposure, composition and what lens to use, I got an IDEA! I love sharing my experience, but I cannot possibly take everyone with me on an expedition. I decided to create an app to share all those beautiful places I have visited on this planet along with tips on how to photograph them. I named the app Fripito,” said Jan, professional photographer and founder of Fripito.
The idea of Fripito was born over a cup of excellent coffee in the Czech Republic, the very heart of Europe. While the team is based in Prague, one of the world’s most photogenic cities, its members spend most of their time traveling around the globe making Fripito a truly global project. To ensure close ties with Silicon Valley’s start-up community and investors, the company was incorporated in Nevada.
