George Lin, Founder of Paper Shoot Camera has made it his mission to create a simple, yet beautiful camera that anyone can use - no matter who you are or where you’re from.
George helped his parents by earning money for his household starting at an early age. He was never able to afford photography equipment and to this day doesn’t have any images of his grandparents to look back on.
As he got older, his love for photography blossomed and so he created the Paper Shoot Camera.
“Make the memory become instant and make instant become forever”
With the “less is more” concept, Paper Shoot Cameras have made the art of photography simple, and put the focus on what’s in front of the camera.
When the pandemic began, business partners Gillian and Jack transitioned from running brick-and-mortar businesses to launching their e-commerce careers as the world shifted to accommodate online purchases.
In October of 2020, they discovered the Paper Shoot Camera and immediately fell in love with its simplicity, sustainability, and aesthetic.
Realizing the incredible opportunity they had in front of them, they quickly reached out to George Lin, the founder of Paper Shoot and signed on as the official North American distribution team.
In January of 2021, they found their TikTok and social media manager, Jillian Smart. It wasn’t long until the Paper Shoot Camera TikTok Page blew up and Jack and Gillian were up to their ears in orders, using Gillian’s dad’s living room as a warehouse.
With the success of TikTok, Gillian and Jack hired photographer Dylan of Capital Content and web developer Artur Ishkaev of Artur Agency as key members of the team.
Paper Shoot is constantly expanding and looking to collaborate with artists and creatives. In March of 2021, we hired 10 TikTok ambassadors who’ve become influential in the company’s success. As we continue to grow, we hope to expand our means of collaboration and stick to our company’s founding morals of creativity and community.
