“Work on designing a life you try not to escape from rather than finding your next vacation,” so says Ward Chandler, Calgary startup SeeMail founder, a man who seems to be having the time of his life with his new tech innovation. “It makes life indistinguishable between work and play.” To that, we can wholeheartedly agree.
With the slogan “the story behind the photo,” SeeMail is an Apple app that allows you to add voice to your photos and share them on social media and with your app friends. What makes SeeMail differentiated from other apps is that it seizes the intimacy of the moment when the photograph was taken.
Ward was one day going through old family photos when he found one with his father from when he was 12 years old. At the back of the photograph were the words, “Jasper, Alberta, 1973.” Ward’s father had died the year before, and at that moment in time, he wished his father’s voice were embedded in those photos so the experience could be likened to listening to a story while flipping through the pages of the album. That had been the same instant SeeMail was born.
Currently, Ward has just released a new version of SeeMail in the App Store that includes photo editing, an improved in-app commenting and social media sharing. Also, you have the option to pick out any photo from an album in your Facebook account and insert a voice caption to it.
When asked what contributed to his success, aside from passion for what he is doing, Ward says, “You need to just start doing something in addition to your current job. It always leads to something – new opportunities, new contacts, etc. – but if you never start, you’ll never get anywhere. You might find yourself in a completely different direction from where you started, but it all works out.”
