Who We Are

We believe it’s important to “celebrate your story” through beautiful photography.

We’ve captured over 3 million memories for travellers across the globe with our team of 500+ talented, professional photographers.

Our Story

How it Started

The idea for Flytographer was inspired by a trip to Paris in 2011 with two best friends. Founder Nicole Smith wanted to come home with one good photo that captured their adventure together — and also showcased the beauty of the city. The idea was born.


Nicole & her best friend, Erika met up in Paris in 2011. This photo sparked the idea for Flytographer.

Flytographer officially launched in 2013 as a side hustleall while Nicole worked full-time at her corporate job and raised her two young kids. In the last 10 years, Flytographer has scaled across six continents, hired 500+ photographers and our team has had the honour of capturing over 3 million memories for travellers. ❤️

Today

When the pandemic hit, our business stopped overnight. We, like many, had to reimagine, pivot, and ultimately expand ways of capturing the stories that matter to our customers … beyond travel.

We’ve since emerged stronger, more diversified (hello hometown shoots and headshots!), and deeply grateful we get to work with a community of awesome people doing work we love. Our HQ team, made up of 90% women, has expanded beyond the original core in Victoria BC, and become fully remote, with team members based in several cities between Honolulu and Montréal.
