Stylish camera straps and harnesses, extra strong and for every occasion
The Leather Rebel
As a photographer I know how difficult it can be to find a camera strap that is high quality and also good looking. Why not do it myself? Is what I thought. I’m a creative entrepreneur and I love to come up with new ideas and concepts. So, I researched the subject and came to the conclusion that I wanted to create this product myself. That’s how The Leather Rebel started.
The straps and harnesses are made of leather. I think the beauty of this material lays in the fact that the more you use the product, the more personalized it becomes. The leather becomes more flexible when you carry it around and starts to suit your body shape more and more. Leather products become more beautiful as you use them more frequently. The leather starts to live, which I think is amazing.
Material and quality
Quality, of course, is extremely important when it gets to camera straps and harnesses. You don’t want your camera to detach and fall down. That’s why I went for high quality leather and metal. Locally sourced, so that I can drop by the suppliers who are known by me and whom I trust, so that I know exactly what I say ‘yes’ to when I do to a material.
We use full-grain and strong split leather. This means the leather used are very strong. They keep your camera gear safe, while you’re walking through busy weddings and crowded places or when you’re an amateur photographer taking pictures in a busy city of on your holiday.
Personalize your camera strap or harness
Sure, the leather personalizes the product by adjusting to your use of it. But, I also add a little extra personalization to the camera straps and harnesses in different ways. All the base products are available in several colors, but you can also order the loose parts in different prints and patterns. All made of the same strong leather, so you can choose whichever you like: dots, stripes, or another fun print. This way, you can personalize the strap so it fits every occasion. Maybe, you want to wear something different in nature than during a wedding photoshoot.
Next to all different options for color and pattern, The Leather Rebel also offers the option to let your own logo be engraved in the leather of your chosen product. As a photographer myself, I know how important it is that people can find you as a freelance photographer.
And most of the time, you meet a lot of people interested in doing a shoot while you’re shooting. How awesome is it that your own logo is engraved in the harness you bought? This way, people immediately see who you are and what the name of your photography business is.
A strap or harness from The Leather Rebel completes your look as a photographer. Of course, you’d like to make the impression of a stylish, modern and professional photographer whenever you have a photoshoot.
A beautiful leather strap is a part of that outfit. Especially, when your own logo is engraved in it and the colors can be adjusted to fit your own branding. It’s like a business card, but in real life. People will notice you more quickly and will be interested by your looks immediately.
Next to that, they’re great for your work. Your camera gear is safe, there’s place for a second camera body and you don’t have to walk around with heavy, clumsy bags.
