CamRanger was founded and developed by Dave Pawlowski and his wife Melissa. Both have a love of the outdoors and enjoy long-distance backpacking and kayaking. It was actually on a kayaking trip when the idea for CamRanger was first formed. It was very difficult to get a picture taken from a distance with both Dave and Melissa in the kayak and get the focus and framing correct. Surprised by the lack of wireless control options, they used their engineering background and iOS development experience to create their own: CamRanger.
