Our Customers in the Press
Read about our customers' experiences using Snapsportz and how it's changed their business. From the east coast, to the west coast, to Hawaii, Snapsportz has played a pivotal role in transforming businesses photo initiatives and generating revenue.
Eight suppliers and operators join a roundtable discussion on the merits and challenges of various photo systems.
Aerial adventure parks across North America are adding and updating photo systems to meet the growing consumer demand for high-quality, shareable pictures of their high-flying adventures. But as demand increases, so does the debate around what the most effective approach is.
We asked a few suppliers and operators for their take on the questions we think are central to the discussion. Their views are often divergent, and sometimes conflicting—if we had them all in a room together, the discussion would have run for hours. As it is, the following presents plenty of food for thought.
A Snapshot at Photo Systems
Travelers love pictures of themselves doing once-in-a-lifetime activities surrounded by stunning natural landscapes. This cultural trend is a win-win for business: when photo system technologies are integrated into aerial adventure parks and zip line courses, the guests’ desire to see, and share, their photos translates into an uptick in profits for the operation.
There are several photo systems specifically designed for aerial adventure operations, and all have their benefits, depending on the needs of the operator. The technology has evolved quickly in recent years, as have guest expectations. Advanced photo services are becoming the norm, so parks are making moves to keep up and realize the benefits of what these systems offer.

Nike BMX Throws Down- BNQT
Nike knows how to throw a party. Last weekend Nike held their BMX Night Jam in Los Angeles, California. My favorite part of the weekend? When my friend Ana who was meeting me there asked, “Casual or dressy”, to which I said “It’s in the LA river. Downtown”. To which she said “Ok. Casual.” Honestly when I heard about the event I was pumped. Everyone has seen the Nike Just Do It campaign – surfers riding in a black ocean, snowboarders riding at midnight with stadium lighting and fireworks.. And the event downtown LA did not disappoint...
