How it Works

We make it easy to find amazing photographers and videographers

Connect with a network of professional filmmakers and photographers

SmartShoot filmmakers and photographers are all professionals with pro-grade equipment and the expertise necessary to bring your project to life. SmartShoot connects you directly with a talented, experienced creative who works with you to ensure your project meets your unique needs.

1. Get pitches based on your specific project requirements.

Tell us exactly what you are looking for with your photo or video project, your budget and any deadlines – heck, you can even send us a video or photo and tell us “I want something just like this!” We’ll put your project in front of qualified professional filmmakers and photographers who will pitch you their ideas and budget for executing your project.

2. Choose the creative you want to work with.

SmartShoot creatives are among the best in the world. When filmmakers and photographers pitch for your project, you’ll see not only their pitch, but also feedback & comments on their past SmartShoot jobs, job history, rankings, samples of their work and more. Based on the pitch, rankings, ratings & history, you select the filmmaker or photographer that is best for you.
