Hi everyone. As many of you already know, I actively research Camino routes and publish the content freely through my TrailSmart app. I'm working on something now with which I am hoping some of you can help me.

I'm trying to build an internal reference library of photos covering all routes of the Camino in detail. I'm not just looking for attractions and great panoramas (though those are good too), I'm looking for all those 'boring' or 'bad' photos as well that you probably thought you'd never actually show anyone. In fact, for my purposes, it is the boring photos that will often be the most useful! 'Pretty' photos aren't important – no worries if you don't think you are a great photographer (I'm a terrible one myself...).

These photos will be used only for my own reference purposes – I won't publish them, post them to social media, include them in my app, or use them in any other public way. They just help with research when verifying trail details, improving trail descriptions, and so on.

What I am looking for are photos with geo-location (GPS) information included within them. Most modern cameras and smartphones have this GPS ability and it is probably already enabled in your photos. If you aren't sure if your photos include geo-location, we can test one first.

If you are interested in helping, please message me and we can transfer the photos via Dropbox or Google Drive.

No need to go through your photos and select only the best; I'll happily take them all. For my purposes, the more photos the better. :)

I'm trying to collect photos covering as much of each of the Camino routes as possible. Not just the 'big' routes, but also any of the less-common ones.

If you have photos from other long-distance trails you've walked, I'd love to be able to use those too.

Let me know if you have any questions. Thanks in advance!
