Matblac Studio Wriststrap | Review + Giveaway

Hey Folks, 

we all are constantly annoyed by manufacturers include awful cheap looking and feeling straps with their multi thousand dollar cameras and I don’t know how it is with you but normal camera straps are always in the way when you’re shooting. They’re just good for having the camera on your shoulder but that’s all. I first came across Matblac while visiting the Old Biscuit Mill Market in Cape town and while they did not have any camera related stuff by then I was amazed by the high-quality everyday life accessories they did. I quickly followed them on Instagram which was the place for Matthew, Matblac’s Mastermind to put nice pics of his iPhone Cases, wallets and sunglass cases. As soon as he put up a picture from a wriststrap prototype I was hooked and after I told him that he invited me over to have a first look at it and tell him about my first impression from a photographers perspective. Head over to the full post to read about the final version and how you can get one of these wrist straps yourself since were giving one away.

Marie’s LA Gear

Hi there everyone this is Marie. We are currently right in the middle of our final preparations for our trip to LA starting this weekend. We will be on stay for about 4 weeks and we planned the whole thing as a mixture of vacation and self promotional work. Since we’re leaving in a few days it was about time to check our gear and we thought it might be interesting for a few of you to know what will be in our bags for the trip. In addition Sigma Germany have been kind enough to let me play with their new toys which I will test drive over there and hopefully I will be back with a lot of new pictures and Alex and me might even do a little review about the new Art-Lenses.

About Skateboards, comfort zones and AF-systems

Hi fellas this is Alex, this time with a short post about my latest shoot in cape town. As you might know Marie and me are currently on stay here to expand our portfolios. For me this means doing more sports and action stuff. So i set up a shoot with James, a skateboarder from a local agency called FanJam. Beside this being the first time ever for me to shoot a skateboarder without knowing a lot about it, it was also the perfect opportunity to test the AF systems of both the A7 and the a6000.

Cape Town – a fashion shoot with the Olympus OMD EM-1 | VIDEO

Hey there fellas! As you might know we are in cape town at the very moment so we got lots of stuff to do. Since I promised some making-of stuff at the very beginning I used Marie’s first shoot with the gorgeous Lisa from Ice Models Capetown featuring the Olympus OMD EM-1, Olympus Germany was kind enough to give her for the trip,  to make a little behind the scenes video. My hands are super shaky as it seems and my grading skills are far away from perfect but this might give you an idea how it looks like when we’re shooting.
