What was the motivational force behind the creation of the Fripito app?
I do photography and travel expeditions leading for living. My clients often ask me how I took specific pictures and I love sharing my experience, but I cannot possibly take everyone with me on an expedition. I decided to create an app to share my knowledge and all those beautiful places I have visited along with tips on how to photograph them. Together with a great local professional photographers from all around the world, I spent the last two years working on Fripito travel app made for photographers and I put all my knowledge into it.
What’s the key to developing a strong eye for photography? How the app helps amateur photographers to improve their photography skills and learn how to take the best pictures?
Strong eye for photography is about inspiration and practice. Each picture you see, every place you visit will form your mind and train your eye. So Fripito is endless source of inspiration because we work with great local photographers.

Absolutely! If you prepare your trip properly and you know what you are looking for, it is much more easier to discover great places and make better pictures.
Is the Guide just a blueprint or a tool to consult when you’re at a breathtaking location or landmark helping discover new potential shots?
