Shoot My Travel is launching and rebranding into Angle, a full-stack platform addressing the inefficiencies of hiring professional photographers across all markets B2C & B2B


On their own, customers face too many hurdles finding and hiring a reliable, professional photographer. Businesses want a professional photography partner who will deliver consistent, high-quality products at a fair, clear rate. Families want a personal photographer who can  capture their memories while they live in the moment. Individuals want an affordable, local photographer who listens and works with them to realize their photographic goals.

The process of hiring a photographer is overwhelming, time-consuming, and costly - which can lead to disappointing results.

Without support, they can waste precious time searching the internet and social media only to be overwhelmed by thousands of photographer profiles and websites with nothing to vouch for reliability and professionalism. They must then wade through obscure and varied pricing packages, no two photographers charging the same and many unclear on their deliverables.

Angle aims to be the resource for all photographic needs. We believe our guiding principles of versatility, ingenuity, and collaboration make us the go-to creative photographic partner for every business, family, and individual.

Our marketplace has over 950 photographers with a growing waitlist and has collectively captured over 7,500 photoshoots since inception. Our revenue and bookings were consistently growing until the pandemic severely restricted travel in 2020. However, we still achieved meaningful bookings in 2020, and we believe our activity will continue to pick up and grow in 2021 and beyond.

  • You are investing in a SAFE:

    You are investing in a SAFE, not a convertible note. A SAFE is a convertible security that is not debt, while a convertible note is debt. A convertible note includes an interest rate and maturity date, at which time a noteholder would be able to demand repayment. A SAFE does not have these features. In addition, your investment in a SAFE will be subordinate to true unsecured debt. Both SAFEs and convertible notes convert into equity in a future priced equity round, but there is a chance they will never convert to equity. For SAFE’s in particular, again, there is no interest and no maturity, and repayment is not required.


  • Total Amount Raised:

    The Total Amount Raised includes investments made outside of the SeedInvest platform via Regulation D, not counting towards the Target Minimum. $229,146 has been raised prior to the launch of the SeedInvest campaign via Regulation D, of which, $229,146  is not being counted towards the Target Minimum. The earliest investment was made in June 2020.


  • Closing conditions:
    While Shoot My Travel has set an overall target minimum of US $390,000 for the round, Shoot My Travel must raise at least US $25,000 of that amount through the Regulation CF portion of their raise before being able to conduct a close on any investments made via Regulation CF. For further information please refer to Shoot My Travel's Form C.

  • Transfer restrictions:
    Securities issued through Regulation CF have a one year restriction on transfer from the date of purchase (except to certain qualified parties as specified under Section 4(a)(6) of the Securities Act of 1933), after which they become freely transferable. While securities issued through Regulation D are similarly considered "restricted securities" and investors must hold their securities indefinitely unless they are registered with the SEC and qualified by state authorities, or an exemption from such registration and qualification requirements is available.

    Global Photographic Services Market - 2020 to 2027 (Research and Markets)


    Our target market consists of both commercial photography in the B2B sphere (used by businesses to promote and market products or services) as well as B2C (travel, portraits, events).

    Our main competitors in the space are Meero in Europe, SweetEscape in Asia, and Snappr in the U.S. We believe there is still no dominant player in the industry which gives a great opportunity for innovation and growth in the market.

    The global photographic services market is expected to grow from $43.9 billion in 2020 to  a size of $54 billion by 2027.  The market is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 3% over the entire period.

    Risks and Disclosures

    You are investing in a SAFE, not a convertible note. A SAFE is a convertible security that is not debt, while a convertible note is debt. A convertible note includes an interest rate and maturity date, at which time a noteholder would be able to demand repayment. A SAFE does not have these features.

Both SAFEs and convertible notes convert into equity in a future priced equity round, but there is a chance they will never convert to equity. For SAFE’s in particular, again, there is no interest and no maturity, and repayment is not required.

    The Total Amount Raised includes investments made outside of the SeedInvest platform via Regulation D, not counting towards the Target Minimum. $229,146 has been raised prior to the launch of the SeedInvest campaign and is not counting towards the Target Minimum. The earliest investment shown in Total Amount Raised was made in June of 2020. There is no guarantee that the Company has this cash available for operations as of the date of launch.

    The development and commercialization of the Company’s products and services are competitive. It faces competition with respect to any products and services that it may seek to develop or commercialize in the future. Its competitors include major companies worldwide. This market is an emerging industry where new competitors are entering the market frequently. Many of the Company’s competitors have significantly greater financial, technical and human resources and may have superior expertise in research and development and marketing approved services and thus may be better equipped than the Company to develop and commercialize services. These competitors also compete with the Company in recruiting and retaining qualified personnel and acquiring technologies. Smaller or early stage companies may also prove to be significant competitors, particularly through collaborative arrangements with large and established companies. Accordingly, the Company’s competitors may commercialize products more rapidly or effectively than the Company is able to, which would adversely affect its competitive position, the likelihood that its services will achieve initial market acceptance and its ability to generate meaningful additional revenues from its products and services.

    The Company’s success is dependent on consumer adoption of on-demand photographers , a relatively unproven market. The Company may incur substantial operating costs, particularly in sales and marketing and research and development, in attempting to develop these markets. If the market for the Company’s products develops more slowly than it expects, its growth may slow or stall, and its operating results would be harmed. The market is still evolving, and the Company depends on continued growth of this market. It is uncertain whether the trend of adoption of the market that the Company has experienced in the past will continue in the future.

    Cyclical and seasonal fluctuations in the economy, tourism, and other activities may have an effect on the Company. Both cyclical and seasonal fluctuations in these parameters may affect their business. These seasonal trends may cause fluctuations in quarterly results, including fluctuations in revenues. 

    The Company’s expenses will significantly increase as they seek to execute their current business model. Although the Company estimates that it has enough runway until end of year, they will be ramping up cash burn to promote revenue growth, further develop R&D, and fund other Company operations after the raise. Doing so could require significant effort and expense or may not be feasible.

    The Company projects aggressive growth. If these assumptions are wrong and the projections regarding market penetration are too aggressive, then the financial forecast may overstate the Company's overall viability. In addition, the forward-looking statements are only predictions. The Company has based these forward-looking statements largely on its current expectations and projections about future events and financial trends that it believes may affect its business, financial condition and results of operations. Forward-looking statements involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other important factors that may cause actual results, performance or achievements to be materially different from any future results, performance or achievements expressed or implied by the forward-looking statements.

    The Company may face challenges maintaining, promoting, and growing its brand through continued use of marketing and communications strategies. It may prove difficult for the Company to dramatically increase the number of customers that it serves or to establish itself as a well-known brand in the competitive news media space. Additionally, the product may be in a market where customers will not have brand loyalty.

    The Company must correctly predict, identify, and interpret changes in consumer preferences and demand, offer new products to meet those changes, and respond to competitive innovation. Consumer preferences for the Company's products change continually. Its success depends on its ability to predict, identify, and interpret the tastes and habits of consumers and to offer products that appeal to consumer preferences. If the Company does not offer products that appeal to consumers, its sales and market share will decrease. It must distinguish between short-term fads, mid-term trends, and long-term changes in consumer preferences. If the Company does not accurately predict which shifts in consumer preferences will be long-term, or if it fails to introduce new and improved products to satisfy those preferences, its sales could decline. In addition, because of its varied customer base, it must offer an array of products that satisfy the broad spectrum of consumer preferences. If the Company fails to expand its product offerings successfully across product categories, or if it does not rapidly develop products in faster growing and more profitable categories, demand for its products could decrease, which could materially and adversely affect its product sales, financial condition, and results of operations.

    In addition, achieving growth depends on its successful development, introduction, and marketing of innovative new products and line extensions. Successful innovation depends on its ability to correctly anticipate customer and consumer acceptance, to obtain, protect and maintain necessary intellectual property rights, and to avoid infringing the intellectual property rights of others and failure to do so could compromise its competitive position and adversely impact its business

    Quality management plays an essential role in determining and meeting customer requirements, preventing defects, improving the Company’s products and services, and maintaining the integrity of the data that supports the safety and efficacy of its products. The Company's future success depends on their ability to maintain and continuously improve their quality management program. An inability to address a quality or safety issue in an effective and timely manner may also cause negative publicity, a loss of customer confidence in the Company or the Company's current or future products, which may result in the loss of sales and difficulty in successfully launching new products. In addition, a successful claim brought against the Company in excess of available insurance or not covered by indemnification agreements, or any claim that results in significant adverse publicity against the Company could have an adverse effect on their business and their reputation.

    The Company’s Board does not keep meeting minutes from its board meetings. Though the Company is a Delaware Corporation and Delaware does not legally require its corporations to record and retain meeting minutes, the practice of keeping board minutes is critical to maintaining good corporate governance. Minutes of meetings provide a record of corporate actions, including director and officer appointments and board consents for issuances, and can be helpful in the event of an audit or lawsuit. These record-keeping practices can also help to reduce the risk of potential liability due to failure to observe corporate formalities, and the failure to do so could negatively impact certain processes, including but not limited to the due diligence process with potential investors or acquirers. There is no guarantee that the Company’s board will begin keeping board meeting minutes.

    The Company has not filed a Form D for its prior offerings. The SEC rules require a Form D to be filed by companies within 15 days after the first sale of securities in the offering relying on Regulation D. Failing to register with the SEC or get an exemption may lead to fines, the right of investors to get their investments back, and even criminal charges. There is a risk that a late penalty could apply.

    The Company has an outstanding EIDL loan advance. The Company owes a Small Business Association EIDL (Economic Injury Disaster Loan) loan advance totaling $10,000. This loan advance has been granted in October of 2020.

    The Company has outstanding convertible debt. The Company issued a convertible promissory note for cash proceeds of $100,000 in October 2018. Outstanding principal and accrued interest may be converted upon (1) the Company receiving cash of no less than $1,000,000 for the sale of the Company’s preferred stock, into shares of preferred stock at a price of the lower of 80% of the price of the preferred stock in the financing or the valuation cap divided by the fully diluted capitalization of the Company, as defined in the promissory note; (2) the Company receiving cash of less than $1,000,000 for the sale of the Company’s preferred stock, the note holder will have the option to convert into preferred stock at a price of the lower of 80% of the price of stock part of the financing or the valuation cap divided by the fully diluted capitalization; (3) the sale, transfer, or other disposition of substantially all of the Company’s assets, the holder may elect to convert into common shares of the Company at a price equal to the valuation cap divided by the fully diluted capitalization, or a cash settlement of twice the initial purchase price of the security; or (4) the maturity date, holders may elect to convert into common shares of the Company at a price equal to the valuation cap divided by the fully diluted capitalization of the Company.

    The Company has outstanding SAFE (Simple Agreement for Future Equity) notes. The Company issued SAFE notes for cash proceeds of approximately $1,500,000. The securities are all convertible into preferred or common shares of the Company and may be converted upon (1) the Company receiving cash in a sale of the Company’s preferred stock, and converted into shares of preferred stock at a price of the lower of 80% of the price paid for preferred stock or the valuation cap divided by the fully diluted capitalization or convert into the greater of the number of shares of Standard Preferred Stock equal to the purchase amount divided by the lowest price per share of the standard preferred stock or the number of shares of Safe Preferred Stock equal to the purchase amount divided by the safe price; (2) the sale, transfer, or other disposition of substantially all of the Company’s assets, when the holder may elect to convert the security into common shares of the Company at a price equal to the valuation cap divided by the fully diluted capitalization, or a cash settlement of twice the initial purchase price of the security; or (3) a voluntary termination of operations or any other liquidation, dissolution, or winding up of the Company, holders of the securities will receive cash payments equal to the purchase price of the securities.

    The Company has not prepared audited financial statements. The Company has prepared reviewed financial statements with an independent CPA. However, a financial review is different than a financial audit; therefore, investors have no audited financial information regarding the Company’s capitalization or assets or liabilities on which to make investment decisions. If investors feel the information provided is insufficient, then they should not invest in the Company.

    The reviewing CPA has included a “going concern” note in the reviewed financials. The CPA reviewed financials in the Data Room have been prepared assuming the Company will continue as a going concern, which contemplates the recoverability of assets and the satisfaction of liabilities in the normal course of business. The Company has incurred losses from inception which, among other factors, raises substantial doubt about the Company's ability to continue as a going concern. The ability of the Company to continue as a going concern is dependent upon management's plans to raise additional capital from the issuance of debt or the sale of stock, its ability to commence profitable sales of its flagship product, and its ability to generate positive operational cash flow. 

    The Company’s cash position is relatively low. The Company currently has approximately $75,000 in cash balances as of May 31, 2021. This equates to approximately 2-3 months of runway. The Company believes that it is able to continue extracting cash from sales to extend its runway and continue normal operations. The Company could be harmed if it is unable to meet its cash demands, and the Company may not be able to continue operations if they are not able to raise additional funds.

    In general, demand for the Company's products and services is highly correlated with general economic conditions. A substantial portion of their revenue is derived from discretionary spending by individuals, which typically falls during times of economic instability. Declines in economic conditions in the U.S. or in other countries in which they operate may adversely impact their consolidated financial results. Because such declines in demand are difficult to predict, the Company or the industry may have increased excess capacity as a result. An increase in excess capacity may result in declines in prices for their products and services.

    The outbreak of the novel coronavirus, COVID-19, has adversely impacted global commercial activity and contributed to significant declines and volatility in financial markets. The coronavirus pandemic and government responses are creating disruption in global supply chains and adversely impacting many industries. The outbreak could have a continued material adverse impact on economic and market conditions and trigger a period of global economic slowdown. The rapid development and fluidity of this situation precludes any prediction as to the ultimate material adverse impact of the novel coronavirus. Nevertheless, the novel coronavirus presents material uncertainty and risk with respect to the Funds, their performance, and their financial results. 

    General Risks and Disclosures

    Start-up investing is risky. Investing in startups is very risky, highly speculative, and should not be made by anyone who cannot afford to lose their entire investment. Unlike an investment in a mature business where there is a track record of revenue and income, the success of a startup or early-stage venture often relies on the development of a new product or service that may or may not find a market. Before investing, you should carefully consider the specific risks and disclosures related to both this offering type and the company which can be found in this company profile and the documents in the data room below.

    Your shares are not easily transferable. You should not plan on being able to readily transfer and/or resell your security. Currently there is no market or liquidity for theseshares and the company does not have any plans to list these shares on an exchange or other secondary market. At some point the company may choose to do so, but until then you should plan to hold your investment for a significant period of time before a "liquidation event" occurs. A "liquidation event" is when the company either lists their shares on an exchange, is acquired, or goes bankrupt.

    The Company may not pay dividends for the foreseeable future. Unless otherwise specified in the offering documents and subject to state law, you are not entitled to receive any dividends on your interest in the Company. Accordingly, any potential investor who anticipates the need for current dividends or income from an investment should not purchase any of the securities offered on the Site.

    Valuation and capitalization. Unlike listed companies that are valued publicly through market-driven stock prices, the valuation of private companies, especially startups, is difficult to assess and you may risk overpaying for your investment. In addition, there may be additional classes of equity with rights that are superior to the class of equity being sold.

    You may only receive limited disclosure. While the company must disclose certain information, since the company is at an early-stage they may only be able to provide limited information about its business plan and operations because it does not have fully developed operations or a long history. The company may also only obligated to file information periodically regarding its business, including financial statements. A publicly listed company, in contrast, is required to file annual and quarterly reports and promptly disclose certain events \u2014 through continuing disclosure that you can use to evaluate the status of your investment.

    Investment in personnel. An early-stage investment is also an investment in the entrepreneur or management of the company. Being able to execute on the business plan is often an important factor in whether the business is viable and successful. You should be aware that a portion of your investment may fund the compensation of the company's employees, including its management. You should carefully review any disclosure regarding the company's use of proceeds.

    Possibility of fraud. In light of the relative ease with which early-stage companies can raise funds, it may be the case that certain opportunities turn out to be money-losing fraudulent schemes. As with other investments, there is no guarantee that investments will be immune from fraud.

    Lack of professional guidance. Many successful companies partially attribute their early success to the guidance of professional early-stage investors (e.g., angel investors and venture capital firms). These investors often negotiate for seats on the company's board of directors and play an important role through their resources, contacts and experience in assisting early-stage companies in executing on their business plans. An early-stage company may not have the benefit of such professional investors.

    Shoot My Travel's Form C

    The Form C is a document the company must file with the Securities and Exchange Commission, which includes basic information about the company and its offering and is a condition to making a Reg CF offering available to investors. It is important to note that the SEC does not review the Form C, and therefore is not recommending and/or approving any of the securities being offered.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    About Side by Side Offerings
    What is Side by Side?

    A Side by Side offering refers to a deal that is raising capital under two offering types. This Side by Side offering is raising under Regulation CF and Rule 506(c) of Regulation D.


    What is a Form C?

    The Form C is a document the company must file with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) which includes basic information about the company and its offering and is a condition to making a Reg CF offering available to investors. It is important to note that the SEC does not review the Form C, and therefore is not recommending and/or approving any of the securities being offered.

    Before making any investment decision, it is highly recommended that prospective investors review the Form C filed with the SEC (included in the company's profile) before making any investment decision.


    What is Rule 506(c) under Regulation D?

    Rule 506(c) under Regulation D is a type of offering with no limits on how much a company may raise. The company may generally solicit their offering, but the company must verify each investor’s status as an accredited investor prior to closing and accepting funds. To learn more about Rule 506(c) under Regulation D and other offering types check out our blog and academy.


    What is Reg CF?

    Title III of the JOBS Act outlines Reg CF, a type of offering allowing private companies to raise up to $5 million from all Americans. Prior capital raising options limited private companies to raising money only from accredited investors, historically the wealthiest ~2% of Americans. Like a Kickstarter campaign, Reg CF allows companies to raise funds online from their early adopters and the crowd. However, instead of providing investors a reward such as a t-shirt or a card, investors receive securities, typically equity, in the startups they back. To learn more about Reg CF and other offering types check out our blog and academy.

    When you complete your investment on SeedInvest, your money will be transferred to an escrow account where an independent escrow agent will watch over your investment until it is accepted by Shoot My Travel. Once Shoot My Travel accepts your investment, and certain regulatory procedures are completed, your money will be transferred from the escrow account to Shoot My Travel in exchange for your securities. At that point, you will be a proud owner in Shoot My Travel.


    What will I need to complete my investment?

    To make an investment, you will need the following information readily available:

    1. Personal information such as your current address and phone number
    2. Employment and employer information
    3. Net worth and income information
    4. Your accredited investor status
    5. Social Security Number or passport
    6. ABA bank routing number and checking account number (typically found on a personal check or bank statement) or debit card information, unless paying via a Wire transfer.

    How much can I invest?

    Non-accredited investors are limited in the amount that he or she may invest in a Reg CF offering during any rolling 12-month period:

    • If either the annual income or the net worth of the investor is less than $107,000, the investor is limited to the greater of $2,200 or 5% of the greater of his or her annual income or net worth.
    • If the annual income and net worth of the investor are both greater than $107,000, the investor is limited to 10% of the greater of his or her annual income or net worth, to a maximum of $107,000.

    Separately, Shoot My Travel has set a minimum investment amount of US $1,000.

    Accredited investors do not have any investment limits.


    After My Investment
    What is my ongoing relationship with the Issuer?

    You are a partial owner of the company, you do own securities after all! But more importantly, companies which have raised money via Regulation CF must file information with the SEC and post it on their websites on an annual basis. Receiving regular company updates is important to keep shareholders educated and informed about the progress of the company and their investment. This annual report includes information similar to a company’s initial Reg CF filing and key information that a company will want to share with its investors to foster a dynamic and healthy relationship.

    In certain circumstances a company may terminate its ongoing reporting requirement if:

    1. The company becomes a fully-reporting registrant with the SEC
    2. The company has filed at least one annual report, but has no more than 300 shareholders of record
    3. The company has filed at least three annual reports, and has no more than $10 million in assets
    4. The company or another party purchases or repurchases all the securities sold in reliance on Section 4(a)(6)
    5. The company ceases to do business

    However, regardless of whether a company has terminated its ongoing reporting requirement per SEC rules, SeedInvest works with all companies on its platform to ensure that investors are provided quarterly updates. These quarterly reports will include information such as: (i) quarterly net sales, (ii) quarterly change in cash and cash on hand, (iii) material updates on the business, (iv) fundraising updates (any plans for next round, current round status, etc.), and (v) any notable press and news.


    How can I sell my securities in the future?

    Currently there is no market or liquidity for these securities. Right now Shoot My Travel does not plan to list these securities on a national exchange or another secondary market. At some point Shoot My Travel may choose to do so, but until then you should plan to hold your investment for a significant period of time before a “liquidation event” occurs. A “liquidation event” is when Shoot My Travel either lists their securities on an exchange, is acquired, or goes bankrupt.


    How do I keep track of this investment?

    You can return to SeedInvest at any time to view your portfolio of investments and obtain a summary statement. If invested under Regulation CF you may also receive periodic updates from the company about their business, in addition to monthly account statements.
