With current growth rates between 50-100% each year, Locationscout grew to one of the biggest platforms for travelers and photographers and is the worlds largest platform for photo locations.
The idea was born at Kirby Cove, San Francisco in 2011 already, the first version of the platform went live in autumn 2014. Finding beautiful places to photograph was a problem that the founder Manuel Becker as a passionate photographer had himself. Since there was no real solution to this issue, the idea of Locationscout was born.

The community approach of the platform is helping people around the world to find and share the most amazing places they can photograph. A lot of details like the exact geo-position, the best timing, parking or photo tips are helping other travelers to plan their trips. This is why the data shows small bumps around November and December which is usually the time when trips & vacations are over for the year. With the planning phase starting in January, the numbers are growing strongly again.

A car-company could, for example, offer their services to the users that need a car anyway on their next trip to Iceland or a hotel chain could offer rooms near the spots the photographers are travelling to.
