is reaching the pinnacle of photography when you get a strap named after you? if it is, then i've may have just reached it.
quite a few months ago i met josue and nikki- the awesome people behind nativesand.com. we talked about ideas, camera gear, lighting... there are people out there who bleed honesty, enthusiasm and creativity and they were those people. and it's those people who you should invest your energy and ideas into. so i tried to do just that. but after visiting their shop and our random conversations along the way, i think they invested just as much into me.
so it was a fun little surprise when they left a gift for me at work: a beautiful little leather wrist strap. followed by a text asking me if i wouldn't mind the strap being named after me. and then finding it on nativesand.com: "the conti" #thatescalatedquickly. totally humbling.
but this post isn't about me. it's about buying your own "the conti" to support awesome people like native sand. put some hand crafted, home made bling on that film camera you have and go out and shoot. go check out nativesand.com and help support the foundation of a growing lifestyle brand. and maybe order some of their coffee too. it's amazing.
