Live The Moment

BlackRapid was founded by Seattle photographer Ron Henry in 2008.

After years of shooting the Seattle music scene, weddings, and other dynamic environments, Henry created a strap where the camera hangs upside down securely at the photographer’s side, ready to maneuver into position at a moment’s notice. When ready to take a photo, the patented ConnectR allows the camera to quickly glide up the strap and into shooting position.

Today, BlackRapid is a multi-million dollar company, and the premier camera accessory brand offering products designed to improve the speed, comfort and efficiency of consumer and professional photographers.
