On-demand photo company Meero gains momentum in the US with a new office in Los Angeles
NEW YORK, NY - October 24, 2019 - One year after expanding to New York, Meero, a global start-up with a mission to help photographers devote themselves and their time entirely to their passion, is continuing its momentum in the U.S. with a new office opening in Los Angeles. This sixth international location is a part of the company's global expansion plan and will help to reinforce its presence in the North American market.
Meero, which has raised nearly $300 million in funding to date, will leverage the new U.S. market as a strategic investment to further build out its community of photographers as well as brand clients in the region.
“The U.S. is core to photography creativity and innovation, and it was inevitable for our next expansion location,” said Julien Zakoian, CMO and CEO of North America at Meero. “We look forward to working with new talented photographers across the country and driving the future of photography over the next years to come.”
The start-up currently has more than 700 team members working across the globe and plans to have 1,200 by the end of 2019. This exponential growth is a part of the company’s wider global expansion. The Los Angeles office will employ approximately 15 people by the end of the year.
Meero is revolutionizing the photography industry with its on-demand platform for photos and a suite of tools dedicated to photographers’ activities. Meero has a network of more than 60,000 photographers around the world and delivers one photoshoot every 25 seconds. The company works with 31,000 clients in more than 100 countries.

Founded in 2016, Meero aims to revolutionize the world of photography by allowing photographers to dedicate themselves to their passion. From providing revenues and market research to invoicing, post-production, and delivery, Meero takes care of all the laborious, time-consuming tasks which plague the industry. Above all, the company aims to provide them with tools for file compatibility, CRM, marketing, and other daily needs. In addition to this, they'll have access to a series of educational masterclasses, inspiring documentaries, meetups with photographers in 35 different countries, a magazine in 2 different languages, and even a foundation supporting photography worldwide.
Meero also solves a major problem in the world of photography: photo editing. Normally 60 minutes of actual shooting will take up to 4 hours of extra post-production work. The cutting-edge content enrichment technologies the company is currently developing can reduce this time to a few seconds, solving the problems of long delivery times, inconsistent photo rendering and unfair prices.
Meero further gives artists the chance to work with major brands and take advantage of a whole range of solutions that simplify their work and make the production of beautiful images far easier.
These innovations allow brands, and soon individual consumers, to access made-to-measure photo and video solutions around the world. Meero manages the photoshoot process from beginning to end, guaranteeing unbeatable prices, delivery times of less than 24 hours and professional photo quality.
