    In May 2015, Picfair was just one person - founder Benji Lanyado. He had learned to code, launched the site, and attracted a few thousand photographers to the site. Within a year the company had funding from some of the best angel investors in the world, a small team of engineers and marketers, over a million images, photographers in 120 countries, and clients from international publications and brands. Picfair is moving into a very exciting growth stage, and the team is growing.
