Our Response to COVID-19
Pricing Plans + Safe, Contactless Photo Sharing
Our initial response to COVID and the lack of live events was to provide billing relief. We suspended all billing on March 15th, 2020 while keeping our license partner accounts active. We also provided pro-rated refunds to annual plan partners.
After 6 months of billing relief, we rolled out pay-per-event pricing allowing an affordable on-ramp to begin spotting again. Additionally, we doubled down on tech releasing Enhanced Detection of Masked Persons and other features allowing for our partners to offer safe, contactless SpotMyPhotos services.
Regardless of the challenges ahead, our philosophy continues to be that we are in this together as remote teammates of our partners in the field. For any COVID-related questions or others, please contact us.
We have plans catered to a variety of needs and there are many ways to spot. Questions? Contact us.

Frequent Licensing Questions
Yes – Canon, Nikon, Sony, other… Doesn’t matter. Any camera with an SD card slot can work with SpotMyPhotos while roaming, when paired with an iPhone running the SpotMyPhotos app. CF card slot? We’ve heard and verified that people are using SpotMyPhotos with CF card adapters as well.
Furthermore, any camera that can be tethered to a laptop (mac or pc) can also work with SpotMyPhotos in a stationary environment.
- iPhone with a data plan (6s or more recent)*
- SpotMyPhotos Kit (Includes SpotMyPhotos Wi-Fi SD Cards & Wristband)**
To unleash the full capabilities of SpotMyPhotos, we must cloud-enable cameras. We can do so in several ways.
The SpotMyPhotos WiFi SD Card was inspired by the work of both Eye-Fi and Toshiba. Our card married the best technologies available to us and layered our own technology in as well for the world’s most reliable wifi sd card. Class 10 write speed, made available in 16, 32, and 64GB densities.
Alternatives to the SpotMyPhotos Wifi SD Card
- Tethering to a laptop
- Use of the latest Canon Camera Systems (SpotMyPhotos Integration)
We were thrilled to collaborate with Canon in 2018 upon an integration within all of their camera systems. Any Canon camera model released to market in May of 2019 or later has the direct integration, which can be unlocked with a firmware update available through the SpotMyPhotos dashboard. This was done in conjunction with Canon and will not void your Canon warranty. The integration was debuted at CES 2019, where Canon and SpotMyPhotos showcased the world’s first cloud-enabled DSLR.
- Few other solutions we’ve devised for some of our industry partners, that we can prescribe based upon our understanding of your objectives.
Can I operate SMP on multiple camera systems simultaneously at one event? How about multiple events at the same time?
Yes and yes!
At large events, the magic of SpotMyPhotos becomes especially clear. Guests only need only provide information one time for the option to privately and automatically receive all of their photos.
Yes, you will still need to use your SpotMyPhotos SD card in most cases.
The most common exception is Canon camera models which saw their initial release after May 2019. These -and all future Canon cameras systems will support the SpotMyPhotos integration, bypassing the need for a SpotMyPhotos Wi-Fi SD Card.
There are SpotMyPhotos modes of operation for every environment you may encounter. In the most extreme case, our offline mode can be used to gather information until you catch that fresh breadth of wifi or a decent cellular signal.
We call that White Label. Pro customers will pay $29 per event for it.
Use SpotMyPhotos desktop software upon any computer (mac or pc). By tethered connection to your camera (or capture device) you’ll be able to stream photos to the SpotMyPhotos platform. Or – if you’d prefer – feel free to stream through the SpotMyPhotos app using the SpotMyPhotos WiFi SD Card or a directly compatible camera system.
Spot from any device with an Internet connection whether laptop, tablet or phone.
High volume station? Consider using a “spotter” (friendly tablet-toting assistant) to engage those photographed immediately after their pictures.
Yes! Some upload issues in remote regions, but our offline mode ensures people can be spotted anywhere.
Sorry, we do not.
We have a selection of written and video training materials available within our Help Center on the SpotMyPhotos Dashboard. After you sign up, you will have access to these resources and a dedicated onboarding specialist, if you need assistance. In addition, Live Chat Support and our Support Phone Line give licensees that extra level of dedicated real-time support as needed over time. We’ve made learning SpotMyPhotos easy!
Yes, we offer options to integrate your current printing equipment and workflow seamlessly. Install our Printer Application onto any mac or pc connected to your printer.
We are currently keeping photos available for a minimum of 60 days, but often much longer. Please contact us if you have specific requirements.
An event can be created in as few as 30 seconds. It’s easy; a basic webform with key information such as event name, date and time. It is easy to upload photo overlays and any branding as well (simple drag and drop), although creation of those assets will take time.
Overlays are optional but used over 95% of the time for photographer watermarking or branding purposes. They make photos more novel. Fortunately, we have templates you’re welcome to if up for whipping something together yourself. We also have some great 3rd party partners helping our licensees with designs if you’re up for commissioning their support.
We’d recommend allowing at least 20 minutes to get comfortable streaming, and certainly recommend testing before the day of an event.
Most individuals can follow directions in our Getting Started Guide and be streaming within 10 minutes their first time around.
Once paired, setting up one’s camera and phone to stream in subsequent outings can be accomplished within a minute.
