Victoria’s Nicole Smith has made a pitch to the Dragons. The founder of Flytographer will appear on CBC Television’s business reality show Dragon’s Den on Wednesday in a pre-recorded episode.

Her company has a downtown Victoria office, where staff work with about 300 photographers in 160 cities around the world. Flytographer lines up photographers for customers who want memorable photos for everything from honeymoons to holidays.

Dragons’ Den participants are not permitted to reveal the results of their bid for money. Business people appear before a panel of entrepreneurs to seek funding for their ventures.

If a verbal deal is struck on the show, the business person and the entrepreneur enter into discussions, to try to finalize a formal agreement. That may or may not happen.
