The AI-driven startup said that the funding will be used to build deeper technology solutions to streamline and distribute massive offline content for photographers.
“Our vision is to build a single platform for creative professionals, businesses, and consumers across the globe to achieve their creative goals in the most effective manner. The digital photography industry is worth nearly $110 billion, with millions of photographers working as freelancers. There is a huge scope of innovation in the ways how content is stored, edited, and distributed to clients and social media platforms presently,” said Sanjay Kumar, Co-founder, Spyne.
Spyne was co- founded by Sanjay Kumar, and Deepti Prasad in 2018. It helps creative professionals such as photographers and corporations to seamlessly organise, edit, and share massive content within their network.
Further, it helps premium businesses to get high-quality images.
Spyne co-founder Deepti said, “Most of the photographers still use DVDs and USBs to share their content with customers. Some have moved onto cloud-based solutions. But, can the photographers deliver personalised experiences to the people viewing the content? Can an AI solution understand the photographer’s subjective enhancements on the images and replicate the same over the photographer’s next batch of images? Spyne is exploring this route.”
The company claims it is already on a high growth path. It has also signed up with more than 700 photographers in the last 10 months, and is looking to take its solution to more than 3,000 photographers by the year-end.
The startup also claims to have enabled photographers to share more than 10 million images with their clients.
