NOT everybody is a photographer, and that's okay, until you find yourself in front of a magnificent sunset in New York City.

Founders of Travelshoot, Sarah Peace and Tim Jones, want to ensure that every moment of a vacation is not just documented, but beautifully documented.

The concept behind Travelshoot is an on-demand professional photographer who can show you around a foreign city and get magnificent photos of you at the same time.

This model is set to disrupt the travel-guide industry, by utilising the locals of popular destinations around the world. Think of Travelshoot as Air BnB but for professional photographers and guides.

The startup is now in 90 countries around the world, and is backed by Queensland Chief Entrepreneur Steve Baxter and Qantas.

Recently, the group has commenced commercial trails with both Qantas and Jetstar, which includes features on all of Qantas' destination pages, as well as being part of a Sunrise competition. The duo hope a successful commercial trail will progress to a full commercial outcome for the startup.

Tim Jones and his sister and co-founder Sarah Pearce were finalists in the Gold Coast Young Entrepreneur awards too, for the Hospitality and Tourism category. Read more
