Introducing “The Craftsman”: A Dual Camera Belt
24 Sep ’16
It’s been some time playing around with leather. The main reason was to build myself an awesome leather dual camera belt/harness. In my humble opinion although the Black Rapid straps do an awesome job, they completely spoil your look. In scenarios like weddings, sometimes it is imperative to be dressed well and the Black Rapids and their clones don’t come in handy. There exist some classy leather alternatives like the Barbershop Sideburns and the Holdfast Moneymaker, but they usually cost an arm and a leg. I kept looking for long for a dual camera harness solution that didn’t cost a kidney and looked awesome on a tux, and but sadly came up empty handed. It was then that I took matters in my own hands and designed “The Craftsman”. Made out of the best full-grain leather that money can buy, it’s a multiple camera harness system, or in simpler words it’s a dual camera belt.
I made the first version around an year ago, and since then I have made quite a few prototypes. I have been using it personally for my professional wedding photography work for the past 10 months, and in these 10 months I have continuously kept on improving “The Craftsman” till the point when I feel completely confident offering it to other classy photographers.
The product development is done. It’s time to focus on the marketing part now. And yep, a dedicated website for my leather products will be up soon. Till then please enjoy the teaser photographs.
