Loved by travelers and photographers

I love using Locationscout for checking what's around me while traveling. It makes it easy to get a first overview of an unfamiliar place and there are so many amazing spots I would've missed if it wasn't for other photographers sharing them on the platform.
Nico Trinkhaus Premium Subscriber
The quality of the app and content is crazy for a solo developer. This app needs all the praise it can get.
Perfderd iOS App Store
Excellent App. Easy to use and provides exactly what I wanted: a map-based guide to great landscape photography locations. The creator and site manager was very helpful and responsive to my queries - a rare thing these days! - nice not to be dealing with some huge faceless company. Highly recommended.
Keith S. Android Play Store
I've been using Locationscout for quite a few years now, not only to share some of my locations with the community but also to find new inspiration and locations before leaving for a new adventure. The seamless ability to use the desktop version at home and the mobile application on the go makes this software so powerful!
Marcel Lesch Premium Subscriber
A "must have" app for every landscape and travel photographer!
Gary S. Android Play Store
I love photography and have found the most beautiful spots around the world through LocationScout. The community is amazing and you find truely hidden photo spot gems. I even found the perfect spot for proposing. Devs, please keep developing and Community, please keep being so awesome!
Alexander M. Android Play Store
Since I discovered Locationscout, it has taken my passion for photography to a whole new level. Not only is the platform intuitive and user-friendly, but it's also an invaluable resource for photographers looking for the perfect locations to shoot. With over 300 locations and images uploaded by me, I have the opportunity to share my discoveries with an enthusiastic community. I highly recommend Locationscout. It's a must for any serious photographer!
Rudolfo Dalamicio Premium Subscriber
This is the best app to find photo locations almost anywhere in the world. As an amateur photography who likes to travel with a camera, I have taken photos that I would not been able to find without this app. I have used Google maps to find cell phone shots taken by tourists. It is rare to find photo locations shared by professional photographers. Locationscout has improved its app continuously since 2018 when I first started using it. You cannot find a better photo location app.
Az S. Android Play Store
Navigation to the spot is a killer feature. In just a morning I covered almost the entire Frankfurt financial district spot to spot: priceless.
Daniele de G. iOS App Store
I can't explain how valuable this app is. I was stationed in Germany for 40 months and I use this app soo much. I planned countless road trips with this app and meant to many more places and I probably would've if I had not have had this app because of the amazing photo spots of this app showed me. The best part about it was with the premium I could just GPS straight to the location which was helpful for me being in a foreign country. 10/10 I always recommend this app to all my photography friends, and I was surprised to find that in most of the various countries if I ever met a photographer, they already knew about this app. For the developer: keep doing what you are doing. This is such an invaluable tool for all of us photographers all appreciate it more than you know.
NaturalSkater iOS App Store
For me, Locationscout has become irreplaceable. It helps me with all the planning of my tours or my vacation. You can find many new spots and also all the practical information about them. In addition, you can also exchange with other photographers who have the same hobby, and learn from each other and motivate.
David Schartner Premium Subscriber
As a landscape photographer visiting Italy for the first time, Locationscout proved to be an indispensable tool for pinpoint locating all of the iconic photo op spots in Cinque Terre and Tuscan countryside. And as an added plus, their support team is outstanding. Highly recommended!

The following questions are either frequently asked or simply questions that I would probably have myself. Please don't hesitate to contact me via if you have any unanswered questions. I am always happy to hear from you.

Founder of Locationscout

  • Why is there a Premium subscription?

    When everything started in 2014, I (Manuel) never imagined growing such a big community around the idea to find the most beautiful photo spots around the world. Like most projects, I just started to build something to see if others would participate and have the same problem as I had back then. The idea was born at Kirby Cove, San Francisco in 2011 already and the first version of the platform went live in autumn 2014. Over 3 years passed since the initial idea and I thought over and over again about it and how to build it until I finally started to work on Locationscout for every evening and entire weekends.

    A lot has changed since these days and while the platform grew, the costs for hosting and providing Locationscout did so too. The only thing that didn't change is the countless evenings and weekends - which is fine since I love what I do and I really care about the community and creating something valuable to others. Premium subscriptions are therefore an urgently required way to be able to build a sustainable business around Locationscout, making it possible to pay the recurring costs, earn my living, hire more talented people, and to keep providing the best possible solution to find beautiful places around the world.

    By subscribing to Premium you are supporting the further development and the maintenance of the platform and the apps for iOS and Android. Additionally, Locationscout is financially supporting multiple environmental projects to protect wildlife and nature.

    P.S. Since I am getting asked this a lot: "Aren't ads already enough to finance the platform?" That's an excellent question and I always thought so too because we all know how much Google and Facebook are earning, but the truth is that companies usually are not advertising on individual websites. They are using ad networks like Google Adwords and this results in quite low earnings for the websites itself while ad blockers cut these earnings in half. I don't want to flood this platform with ads and I will never integrate ad networks that could harm you, even if this results in ad revenues that can't even pay the server costs. This might be my own fault, but it is in line with my conviction and integrity.

    tl;dr

    Subscriptions allow me to pay the bills and keep improving / maintaining the platform.

  • How does the guarantee work?

    It took me 10 years to build this platform while talking to thousands of users about their constructive feedback and ideas to make it the best possible solution for every traveler and photographer. And because I'm so convinced that this platform will be extremely valuable to you as well, I've added a money-back guarantee to the annual plan so you can try it out for yourself without any risk.

    If there is any reason why you are not satisfied within the first 30 days, you can simply write me an email to and you get your money back. And if you miss something, I'm still happy to hear from you at any time.

    Important: I can only give this guarantee if you subscribe via the website, as iOS and Android don't allow developers to refund anything manually.

    tl;dr

    Simply write me an email.

  • Can I use my Premium Account on multiple devices?

    Yes. The Premium subscription is tied to your personal account and you can use it on iOS, Android and the website in parallel.

  • When and how can I cancel my subscription?

    If you subscribe via the website, you can cancel anytime via your billing settings. On iOS devices, you can cancel with your iTunes account settings. On Android, you can use the Google Play Store to see your current subscriptions and cancel them.

    Subscriptions will automatically renew unless cancelled within 24-hours before the end of the current period. If you cancel your plan, it will not renew at the end of your subscription cycle and you can keep using Premium until the period you have paid for is over.

  • What's the difference between the "Around Me" and "Spots Nearby" feature?

    While Around Me helps you to find spots based on your current or a custom position in a radius of up to 250km, Spots Nearby can be enabled within each spot via the map to directly see which other spots are nearby in a 5km radius and could be combined or fit even better for your trip.

    Both features support routing, which is enabled as soon as you select a spot on the map. An overlay exactly tells you the distance and calculates travel time plus the shortest route, which is shown on the map as a blue path.
