GoPro was founded in 2002 by Nick Woodman. He made the groundwork for GoPro in California USA, where the company still holds their head office. The whole concept for GoPro came to life when Nick Woodman was in Australia to surf. He wanted to take good pictures both above and below water from his trip, in both good quality and nice angles. Disappointed by the pictures he got, he took it into himself to make a camera that could be used by professional athletes. And that where we get the name GoPro. He wanted a camera that could be taken everywhere and that could capture angles that were not possible with regular cameras. Two year after founding the company was the first GoPro camera ready. The first camera was not digital, but worked with film. These days all GoPro cameras are digital.
GoPro has since become a company that has revolutionized sports cameras all over the World. The company sells GoPro cameras around the World to sporty people and average Joes who are interested in gadgets and gizmos. Today they sell also other things than only cameras. They have a huge selection of accessories and different mounts for e.g. windows, helmets, bikes, surfboards, etc. On top of everything you can buy a video editing program to go together perfectly with the files GoPro camera produces. You can also find drones you can attach your camera to and shoot some awesome films and pictures from unbelievable heights and angles.
There are many interesting stories from vacations, sports events and private achievements documented with a GoPro. The practicality of GoPro that many enjoy is that one can have his GoPro camera anywhere. It fills absolutely nothing and it is really easy to recharge on the go. The quality of the pictures and movies are fantastic and you can capture even the most extreme things. There are skydivers who use GoPro to film the fall, people who jump off cliffs and into the sea, skydivers, motocross riders and many more different ways to use it.
