SmugMug was founded by Chris and Don MacAskill, father and son, and launched on the internet in 2002. The company started up without any venture capital and began in the home of Chris MacAskill. Both Chris and Don are photographers and they are a photo sharing and image hosting website. Users can upload photos and videos with SmugMug facilitating the selling of these photos by both amateur and professional photographers.
Their business is their passion and they believe that the love of what you do is what makes a business thrive for all involved. Their goal was to have a photography website where they could customize and show the photos without ads cluttering up the pages. Today, they have billions of photos and millions of customers and they feel a sense of responsibility for the photos they store and their customers.
