September 11, 2023

In the ever-evolving landscape of photography in Texas, one innovation that deserves attention is Waldo Photos. Waldo is revolutionizing event photography and changing the way you capture memories captured at Texas schools, camps, sporting events, music festivals, and other memorable gatherings across the Lone Star State.

Waldo Photos is an AI-powered platform that automatically finds and delivers event photos to attendees. How does it work? When you attend an event, you may find a Waldo QR code. Simply upload a selfie, and Waldo’s advanced facial recognition (and numbered jersey recognition for team sports) technology does the rest. It scans thousands of event photos and matches them with your face, sending you the pictures that feature you.

Imagine being at Austin City Limits with your 5 best girlfriends, taking in the music, the unparalleled people watching, and enjoying the amazing local food and drinks. With Waldo Photos, your crew can seamlessly share all the moments in a Waldo gallery and Waldo will deliver everyone the photos they’re in. Whether you’re dancing to the tunes of local Texan bands or enjoying being caught in a sea of fans at one of the headliner stages and one of the great bands of the past, Waldo ensures that your memories are preserved effortlessly.

Waldo offers valuable solutions to camps, schools and sports leagues by simplifying event photography and photo management. It currently partners with schools like the Episcopal School of Dallas, Hill Country Christian School of Austin, and Trinity Episcopal School of Austin. Parents can receive photos of their children participating in various school events, fostering a stronger connection between the school and parents. Similarly, camps can utilize event photos to promote their programs and attract new campers. Waldo presently collaborates with renowned camps, including Camp Olympia, Camp Allen, T Bar M, Camp Balcones Springs and dozens of others across Texas. The automation Waldo provides significantly reduces the administrative workload associated with managing and distributing event photos, enabling camp staff to allocate their time and resources to other essential tasks.

As technology continues to shape the photography landscape in Texas, Waldo Photos is a prime example of how it’s enhancing the way we capture and share our experiences. With AI powering facial recognition and numbered jersey recognition, seamless photo delivery is here and the days of searching for your photos in crowded event galleries are becoming a thing of the past.

In conclusion, the transformation of photography in Texas is not limited to drones, smartphones, and editing software. Innovations like Waldo Photos are redefining the way we interact with event photography, making it easier and more enjoyable for people to relive their favorite moments. As technology continues to advance, we can expect even more exciting developments that will further enrich the photography scene in the Lone Star State. Texas, with its boundless beauty and vibrant culture, will continue to inspire photographers to push the boundaries of what’s possible in the world of photography.
