Photos are a reflection of your experiences—what drives you, where you’ve been, where you’re going, who you love. SmugMug is a safe, beautiful home for all of it—your journey and your photos. Protect your photos and memories with a SmugMug site and give them a place to shine.
In 2002, when Internet companies were collapsing right and left, we decided to start SmugMug—a safe, beautiful home for our photos. We were two passionate photographers who happened to be father and son going up against the likes of Microsoft, Yahoo!, Canon, and Kodak—but we did it anyway. We were too excited about the future of photography and technology to be reasoned with.
Passion became our business model. Digital cameras began outselling film cameras by 2003, and within three years of launching, we became trustees for the precious photos of 50,000 customers. Meanwhile, many of our competitors—the sharing sites of trusted brands—had all but disappeared.
Some of the biggest tech companies in the world have offered to buy us out over the years, but we’ve always turned them down. We’re already successful: we get to take care of billions of beautiful photos and millions of amazing customers every day.
Today, we’re as passionately dedicated to people who invest time, energy, and love into their photos as we were when we started. We strive each day to make you look good and to help you improve your craft. It doesn’t matter whether you’re a professional or a hobbyist, whether you’re branding your portfolio or documenting your life. As long as you care about photos, you’re in.
Welcome to SmugMug.
