Live the Moment – let Waldo find and deliver them! Waldo is a photo-finding phenom that uses facial and numbered jersey recognition to find photos of you taken by others and delivers them directly to your phone. Waldo seamlessly delivers photos from the photographer to the photographed at camps, schools, youth sporting competitions, weddings, and events big and small.

How Waldo works

You submit a selfie, Waldo finds your photos. It’s that easy. Your photographer (at camp, at school, at your friend’s wedding or your favorite family resort) takes the photos and uploads them to Waldo’s secure cloud in real-time. Waldo's proprietary matching platform finds your photo needles in album haystacks and delivers them instantly to your phone via text & app, removing all friction between your photographer and you.

Waldo can find you at:

Summer camps

WaldoCamps uses facial recognition technology to send camp families a text every morning with photos of their camper from the day before. No more worried parents weeding for hours through thousands of camp photos! WaldoCamps features a powerful photographer dashboard that reports photo stats of your campers, ensuring even photo coverage across your campers. It can also serve as a fundraiser for camper scholarships with a revenue model that shares proceeds with the camp.


WaldoSchools brings the power of facial and numbered jersey recognition to booster clubs, yearbook staffs, and school marketers around the country. No more photos discarded on the cutting room floor — empower your school photographers with technology that shares photos immediately with parents who want to see all their child’s moments from school. Sporting events, school plays, pep rallies, science fairs, field trips and more — all delivered via Waldo. WaldoSchools can also serve as a fundraiser for boosters clubs or PTA/Os to raise monies for underfunded projects, organizations, or supplies.

Resorts and attractions

Waldo is a great solution for travelers and tourism operators, allowing guests to live the moment and share images via social media in near real-time. Near real-time mobile photo delivery and easy sharing with integrated branding allows travel brands to leverage their guests’ social media reach. With Waldograms for Business, travel brands can also harness the power of personalized direct mail by sending prints featuring previous guests within a few simple taps.

WaldoSports brings revolutionary technology to the antiquated youth sports photography industry. Using facial and numbered jersey recognition to connect local youth sports photographers to the players on the field, Waldo provides a new way to capture, share, and distribute youth sports photos. Moms and dads can now also seamlessly share their action shots via Waldo’s Shutterbug service.

The App seems good if you actually received pictures

Waldo was chosen as the photographer for a hockey tournament . I paid in advance and didn’t see any photo’s. When I reached out, they told me there were still two games left and photographer would be there. I reached out several more times and still no photos. Finally, several days later, I received three not so great pictures of almost the same exact shot. I reached out again and they told me they would refund my money. That doesn’t change the fact that I missed out on photos of this year’s event because I was told to relax and let them take the pictures. I am so unhappy. They acted like it wasn’t a big deal at all. I hope the tournament goes back to photographer that was used in prior years because this was an absolute failure. We always get the team package and get amazing shots. I don’t even have a team picture now because I have not seen it and because I don’t trust it to be decent, I refuse to send Waldo money to buy it. I am going to look into reporting them to the BBB because of the complete failure of providing what was promised.

Great idea, needs improvement

I love getting texts that my daughter has been spotted at camp. It’s always so much fun to see what she’s up to. However, I still find myself scrolling through the hundreds of photos each day because some of hers were missed by Waldo. Also, I received some false alarms—the faces found weren’t actually my daughter’s. There doesn’t seem to be any way to delete those photos from our album. Great idea, but given that I still need to scroll through all the photos, I miss the free system that our camp had.

Finds faces fabulously

This app is great if you don’t want to scroll through hundreds of photos to find the three or four of your own child. Their face recognition technology is spot-on, too. If you provide a clear, well-lit photo of your child, Waldo does a great job at finding his/her face among even large crowds. I love it. We buy it every year when our son is at camp. At his camp, half the cost goes back to camp as a donation, so that makes it even better. :)
