Amazing app But...

Amazing app I’ve been looking for something like this for a long time. One thing that Would put the icing on the cake is a section for new photographers or people who didn’t have much experience. The reason I say this is because the photos shown are beautiful but when you check the camera that was used.. they are 3,4, and 5 thousand dollar cameras.”not including the lenses” This is fine if you’re a professional. Or even someone who’s been doing it a long time as a hobby. But for people just starting out there should be a guide section with less expensive equipment And tips for people just starting out. Maybe even less advanced locations that require top of the line gear. I think most people would be inclined to spend the extra money on your subscription if they knew they were getting more like a path/guide to being able to taking those amazing pictures rather than just a location and some tips.

Hi Derrek! Thanks so much for your review and we're thrilled that you love the Explorest app! Your feedback about helping guide people in our community with less photography experience is fantastic. We've been working on ways to help our community more easily discover locations that are inline with their photography experience — and we'd love to bounce some of our ideas off of you. Feel free to get in touch with us at info@explorest.com!

Thankful

I know some people like the mysterious hidden landscape to be only found for those fortunate explorers but I think it’s more honorable to share these beautiful hidden areas for all of us. After all we are all homes to this beautiful earth. I think we shouldn’t be selfish but open to sharing. Anyways it’s impossible for everyone to explore all the nature so it’s good to see options. I have cancer patient friends and it’s nice to bring them to these rare locations because every day for them is precious. Truly thankful for this company and hope for more expansion and location. As secrets are open, it will never be enough because earth is full of more mysterious unexplored. And some of us don’t have the luxury to travel. You have no idea how it can be very difficult and money consuming to explore randomly. With this app, we save time and money and enjoy the nature peacefully :) thanks again!

This Is Not Okay.

This app is every California photographer’s nightmare brought to life. One of the greatest parts about being a landscape or outdoor portrait photographer is taking pride in knowing scenic locations. This is a core element of the photography community: knowing “spots” and only sharing them with your close friends and trusted colleagues. (Much like the surfing community.) The mystery of the location of a shot is a core element of the profession. If you want to know where a photo was taken, you have to EXPLORE and find it YOURSELF or know the right people. Well thanks to this app, this aspect of the profession and/or hobby will soon be lost. This is really upsetting. Get ready for all the beautiful, serene shots you see of the California cost become flooded with random pedestrians and wanna-be models. And this complaint/ unfortunate reality-check isn’t coming from an old guy who has been in the business. I’m a 21 year old female photographer that has spent the last 7 years EARNING my knowledge as to where good shooting locations are along the California coast by putting hundreds of miles on my car and making connections with other photographers. Apparently the makers of this app were never taught any industry “manners.”

Hi lollipoplulu - thanks for your review! My name is Michael Lax, I’m the co-founder of Explorest and a professional photographer. I, like you, have worked tirelessly over the years driving thousands of miles and befriending photographers worldwide to discover extraordinary locations. As photographers we have the benefit of being in an industry which enables us to travel and explore for a living; however, we all have many friends who aren’t photographers and are lucky if they get to take a couple trips per year. Myself and the other Explorest location contributors feel compelled to share the world’s beauty with everyone; especially those who don’t have the luxury of time to discover these places on their own. We hear your concern and are very mindful in which locations we include in our database. We don’t include any location too sacred or sensitive to human impact. Please feel free to reach out to us directly if you'd like to discuss further!
