What location should you pick for your photoshoot? Whether you’re on a romantic or family photoshoot, this is an excellent question since the location can make or break your images.
A great photographer can work in any environment given and create beautiful artwork. That being said for your photoshoot, you usually want to have the personality of your loved ones and yours to shine through the images.
Here are a few tips we gathered from photographers and our personal experience over the years:

Big news! Very short but intense. KYMA is now available in Chinese.
Kybot has been upgraded (again) and now speaks Chinese !
In our effort to continuously help people over the world book easily the best photographers around the world we are working on getting the platform in different languages. Chinese is the first version of KYMA available in a different language. We would like to thank our awesome team member Yun who has helped a lot in teaching Kybot Chinese.
Welcome to all of our Chinese-speaking friends!
Wondering why you get an email after a photoshoot asking you to review your photographer?
Living in a day and age of the digitalisation of things, we give more and more importance to what we read online. Online reviews act as a word of mouth referral, they help other users find more about what a photographer is like to work with, what was great working with him and what was bad.

Today we’re introducing the photographer of the month!
What’s that all about ?
As you might have guessed this will be a monthly post (thus the name – surprising right?). We will select and interview a photographer from KYMA every month (join today if you are a photographer). The goal behind is for you, reader, to get to know better what’s in the head of an inspiring photographer. As a client it will inspire you get better pictures taken and as a photographer hopefully it will inspire your to always take your art to the next level.

KYMA believes in making the world a better place for all of us. Booking your photographer on KYMA contributes to making it.
From the moment we founded KYMA it was clear that we wanted to create real value to the people searching for a photographer by building the best platform to find and book a photographer around the world. This mindset of creating value for people and for photographers (by bringing them new clients) was also accompanied by a strong desire to help foundations that are working on solving big problems around the world.
At KYMA we decided to pledge 1% of each booking price to charity. Which means, every time you book a photographer on KYMA 1% of what you paid goes to charity.
Innovations should not be driven by short term profit vision but by a long term vision for the world as a whole and not as an individual. We decided to support two foundations that are doing amazing things around the world.
Who do we support?
Think of a big, very BIG, problem and solve it. Most of the innovation around the world is funded by companies driven by profit. It is very unlikely that any company will drop millions of dollars in a project that has no return on investment. XPRIZE creates incentives for teams from around the world (from the friends in their garage to the R&D labs, anyone can participate) to find the best solutions to big problems no one has solved yet. How? By rewarding the best tean with a 2, 5 or 10+ Million dollar prize. Check their website for more info, what they do is incredible. From new learning solutions to empower children and communities around the world to helping heal our oceans, prizes are very diverse and truly innovative.
Think micro loans, all around the world for anyone needing it. From a farmer in Africa in need of $50 for gas to a woman trying to improve access to clean water in her Indonesian village, KIVA makes it easy to help those people around the world to achieve their dreams. Oh, and the numbers as amazing, 98.34% repayment rate! More than 800 Million Dollars already lend thanks to them!
We hope you like the philosophy too!
Be part of the change, book your photographer on KYMA!
Find a photographer in over 300 cities and 50 countries in the world
So just like that it happened last week, we now cover over 300 cities in 50 countries in the world ! We would like to thank our amazing photographers who joined the KYMA community. Big thank you also to our clients who trust KYMA for letting us help them find & book the best photographers around the world.
We built KYMA to help you find and easily book the best photographers around the world. Looks like people like the idea! We even had Pick & Pow feature KYMA and write an interview on me (in French). They even made this awesome graphic to show what KYMA does to the world!
Keep sharing KYMA with the world !
Thank you from the whole team!
The KYMA photographer’s badges have been released and you should care.
The whole KYMA team and I are super excited to announce that the KYMA badges have rolled out (apparently Kybot too)! But what are they & what do they look like?
The badges are only for approved photographers on KYMA.
Remember, each one of our photographers on KYMA has been handpicked and went through a manual approval process to propose only the best photographers.
Yes, we know, we have a lot of photographers and yes it took us quite a while if we add up all the hours!
While browsing the web, spot one of the following KYMA badges on a photographer’s website.
Click on it to know if the photographer has been approved by us – if yes it should link to their KYMA profile.
Now guess what?
You can organise your photoshoot securely through KYMA! Yay!
Approved photographers reading, make sure to visit your personal badge page to grab yours.
Let’s introduce KYBOT.
Kybot is a friendly robot created by our overworked crazy brains while developing KYMA – his purpose is to help you on KYMA. I don’t know about you but personally, as a photographer, entrepreneur and geek I receive tons of emails per day and most of them are very impersonal and boring. We thought the best way to make transactional emails (basically any emails not rewritten by a human at the time it is being sent – read more here) a bit more human-friendly would be to give it a face & its own voice. That’s what we did – hello Kybot !
