Triggertrap Ltd was founded in 2011, and was brought to life through crowdfunding site Kickstarter. Based in the UK, our flagship smartphone-based camera triggering solution, Triggertrap Mobile, has been downloaded more than 750,000 times and is in use by thousands of photographers in more than a hundred different countries.
I’m sure you’re curious about who these mysterious (mostly-)humans are, so without further ado – an introduction to Team Triggertrap…
Meet the Team
Mat is the Managing Director at Triggertrap and is based in London. He joined the team from the world of publishing, having spent the previous few years working with some of the more weird and wonderful books ever published (ask him about Afterlives of the Rich and Famous one day).
Drink of Choice: Kronenbourg 1664 (Grand, s’il vous plait)
Favourite Food: A dirty, greasy, burger
Also on: Twitter
Did you know: Mat knows more about Radiohead than you do. Fact.
Thomas probably learnt how to hold a camera before he learnt how to spell his name. He is our in-house photography expert and along with trying to break things, he spends a bit too much time in the studio and out and about actually breaking things, photographing our products, working on cool marketing ideas and managing our PR. When he’s not thinking of cool new photo shoot ideas for Triggertrap, he spends his time as a freelance photographer or eating his way around various street food stands in London.
Drink of Choice: Cuba Libre
Favourite Food: A fine bacon sandwich, on thick white bread with a dollop of brown sauce
Also on: Twitter, Instagram
Did you know: Thomas once worked as an underwater baby portrait photographer.
Helin is the face of our Customer Support, and works as part of the Marketing Team. She is working to keep Triggertrap customers happy by answering any queries about the fantastic products that we have to offer! Outside of Triggertrap Helin likes to dabble in photography and wander around exhibitions in London.
Drink of Choice: Pina Colada
Favourite Food: Olives

Did you know: Helin has had her photography work displayed in galleries in London and Bournemouth.
Daniela is responsible for ensuring that wherever in the world you want to buy a Triggertrap, there's a Triggertrap to buy. As consequence, she has now developed an unhealthy obsession for spreadsheets, to join that of shoes and ice cream. When Daniela isn't working for Triggertrap, she writes books about photography, edits the Photocritic website, and cooks. A lot.
Drink of choice: Gin and tonic (not Gordon's, not slimline)
Favourite food: Anything she makes herself
Also on: Twitter and Flickr
Did you know: Daniela was taught to sit on a horse before she could walk
Haje is the Triggertrap inventor of sorts. His previous tinkering with a laser trigger for his camera is what gave Haje the idea for the Triggertrap. When he’s not coming up with crazy photography gadgets, Haje works as a writer and photographer.
Drink of choice: Perfect Manhattan.
Favorite Food: Quail Egg Omelette.
Also on: Twitter, LinkedIn and Flickr.
Did you know: Haje once accidentally set his face on fire while juggling.
