I pretended to be a model...
In all seriousness I was asked by our very favorite photographer Katie Norris to model some camera straps for her amazing company 'Fotostrap'
I was honored to say the least and it was SO much fun to do. I felt like a real model on that hot 100 degree day dressing for the 'fall look'! Also, because one of the girls WAS actually a model in NY and was like 5'9 and model like!
Please take some time and read some more about her company that does SO much for others!
"I did not want to design an ordinary camera strap, but one that could make a difference. With every purchase, we give to a movement of artists capturing inspiring true stories." - Katie Norris, Founder of Fotostrap
