Amsterdam-based Smiler, a startup which connects photographers with visitors at popular tourist locations and hotspots, announced on Thursday that it has secured an additional $8.5M (approximately €7.92M) in fresh funding.
This brings Smiler’s total funding to over $15M (approximately €13.98M) to date.
Smiler’s investment coincides with the launch of Smiler.co website. This consumer website draws on Smiler’s network of 20,000 photographers and enables users to search for, schedule, and book these quick and simple photoshoots in advance.
Photographers can download the Smiler Photographer app and create an account for customer bookings.
