We’ll Help You Get More YouTube Views, and More Instagram and Website Traffic

We built ExploreDiscoverShoot to help the community of landscape and travel photographers and filmmakers get more YouTube views, and more exposure on Instagram and their websites.

When you’re part of this site, you get full credit with links back to your online properties.

We’ll also promote your work in ExploreDiscoverShoot social media.

In addition to landscape and travel content, we’re also looking for relevant videos and images such as product reviews, tutorials and tips that are useful to our audience.

You Benefit When You Take Part

We promote the site on social media and email. Live links drive traffic back to you which also helps your SEO.

Videos are all embedded, so every play counts against your YouTube views. That gives you a chance to add another subscriber and boost your SEO.

What is the Benefit to Us?

We are filmmakers and photographers ourselves and active participants in various landscape and travel communities. Our goal is to grow these communities. We underwrite the cost of the site through marketing partnerships and advertising.

ExploreDiscoverShoot was Founded by the Two of Us

ExploreDiscoverShoot was founded by Simon Burn and Andy Strote. See our brief bios below.

Who Decides What is Featured on the Site?

Currently, we decide that. Our goal is to maintain a high standard of work and to make it useful and interesting for the whole community. For further information, see the ExploreDiscoverShoot FAQ page.

How Does the Site Work?

For content, the site depends on creators uploading and sharing their work by using this form.

Simon Burn

Simon has been a photographer and creative director in the UK and Canada for over 25 years.

He worked with Andy for multinational corporations and brands before veering off to work on travel, tourism, food and lifestyle projects. Simon has travelled all over North America and Europe, working with consumer brands, tourism associations, and resorts. His work has been published in books, graced the covers of magazines, featured on TV; and he’s also worked with other photographers in the role of creative/art director and photo editor for publications and brands, in addition to being a photography competition judge.

In 2018, he started his own YouTube channel to share his love of travel and landscape photography and filmmaking.

ExploreDiscoverShoot is borne of Simon, Andy and David’s combined creative, business and technical skills, a strong entrepreneurial flair, and passion for photography and content creation.

The opportunities to work with other creators, share ideas, and promote creativity and knowledge, is a driving force with infinite possibilities.

Andy Strote

In Andy’s career as a copywriter and creative director in advertising and marketing, he has created numerous campaigns for corporate clients in all media. On these projects, he worked closely with leading photographers and commercial directors.

Along the way, Andy was the co-founder of two successful marketing agencies. The first, which he started in partnership with Simon, often featured Simon’s photography and videography in our campaigns. We grew that company to 30 people before it was acquired by a multi-national IT firm.

Sixteen years after starting his second marketing firm, Andy sold his interest and now has more time to devote to travel which fuels his photography.

Today, our love of photography, filmmaking and the creative communities that surround these passions has brought us together in ExploreDiscoverShoot.

There has never been a better time to be a photographer or filmmaker. Now the onus is on you to grab your camera and go!

David Griffiths

David has been a creative landscape photographer for over 40 years. He lives and works on the island of Anglesey in Wales, with the high ridges of Snowdonia on his doorstep.

David is an experienced hill-walker and wild-camper, which combined with an encyclopaedic knowledge of his locality, often puts him in the most spectacular locations when the light is just perfect to capture the scene.

He has been fortunate enough to travel the globe and now focuses on the virtually unknown landscape photography locations of north Wales. His photography reflects the ever-changing light, weather, tides and seasons of this spectacular region.

David is an advocate of lightweight equipment to facilitate his hiking, camping and photography passion. As a mountain and coastal guide to this region, he's among the best. He’s never happier than when he's guiding and coaching photographers to make the most of his region!

David also takes you along on many of his location shoots through his weekly landscape photography vlogs on YouTube at D Griff Gallery.
