Local Captures

Local Captures

Local Captures is a photo tour business. We connect travelers with local photographers to make sure
that they capture all the right places, including spots that most tourists don’t see.
Teaming up with inns and hotels, we help them deliver unique local experiences to their guests.
Local Captures is the first step in a broader play in the $300Bn Tours & Activities space in the Travel
Industry. Some call it the last frontier in the Travel Industry from an innovation point of view.
The business is based on two fundamental assumptions:
1. Tourists travel in tribes – foodies like to hang out with foodies, people who like to capture the
beauty of the places they visit with other photographers, and bicyclists with bicyclists. Local
Captures is our first vertical within the Tours and Activities business.
2. 80%+ of tourists buy their tours and activities once they reach their destination. They do not rely
on sites like Travelocity, Expedia, or Kayak to research their options. They rely instead on local
concierges and sites like Yelp, Google and TripAdvisor to make those decisions. Local Captures
works closely with inns and hotels and we deliver an incredible experience that guest cannot
stop talking about.
Our revenue stream is easy to understand – we take a cut on every transaction in our tours and
activities marketplace.
