We believe in a different business approach, a modern and at the same time perhaps old-fashioned approach. An approach where quality and values trump short-term profits.
We believe in...
We put you in the driver seat and make sure that PhotoDeck adapts to your business, not the other way round.
No long-term contract, no commission taken from your sales, no setup fee, no meaningless SEO promises...
We invest in product development, not in marketing. Word of mouth is what makes us grow. And we have no external investor to please, so we can focus fully on our members and on the long run.
Your clients are your business - we empower you with great tools and stay in the shadow.
Our members get to interact directly with the founders. It gives us flexibility and responsiveness our competitors can only dream of.
Because all our work is vain if you can't leverage it easily.
Code that makes good use of the latest web technologies. The software behind PhotoDeck is built in-house, continously reviewed and improved. We hate half-baked "solutions", so we're used to going the extra mile.
Prior to creating PhotoDeck in 2009, J-F Maion spent 11 years managing projects and helping grow new businesses at the world's leading mobile phone manufacturer, specializing in new online projects.
An avid photographer since he was 13, he launched in his spare time his own stock photography website as a pre-PhotoDeck experiment (and managed to gather over 6000 visitors a day).
He speaks fluently four languages and has lived in five countries. He is currently based with his wife in Helsinki, Finland.
A CTO usually brings down-to-earth realism to product ideas. Cedric, PhotoDeck's geek-in-residence and J-F's brother, makes ambitious feature plans even more ambitious -- before translating them into working software (and the code better be clean!).
When he was 15, Cedric set out to write his own graphical operating system (he succeeded). As a teen, he also created a complete accounting application, still in commercial use 20 years later.
A graduate in computer sciences, his 10-year corporate career then led him to design and manage multi-million dollar IT infrastructures.
Cedric lives with his wife and their daughters in Lyon, France.
