What's a good privacy focused alternative to Google Photos?

Hey, I'm making the move away from the big G. So far I've moved email, contacts, browser, search etc. The one sticking point for me is Google Photos. I've been looking at services like sync.com and p-cloud, but I'm wondering if anyone can recommend a more photo focused (instead of storage) service, that's also secure, private, and hopefully not US hosted. Thanks!

    Handles documents too, but it really shines with photos. 100GB for $1.99/mo

    Free unlimited smart photo backup

    Also trying this. The desktop app seems buggy though, and it's a chore to organise albums.

    Currently trialing this. It seems you can only pull from Google once though, it doesn't continuously sync

    Not sure if this fits your qualifications but why not just use iCloud on your iPhone? I thought they keep it all private for you?

    As @mandrake said. One of my best friends has been using it for almost 3 years now for his family pictures and is super happy with it. Easy to use, fair pricing and stable servers.

    Sadly, no product in the market have the capabilities of Google Photos. However, people at Monument, trying to achieve this issue from a different perspective. I guess it will fulfill your privacy need.

    One off price for the NAS and drives, rather than a reoccurring fee. Local storage for the best privacy, but you can backup to cloud if needed.
