For those who may not know me, I’m Ron Henry, BLACKRAPID’s Founder. I started out as a professional wedding photographer over 20 years ago when film was king. I have respect for working photographers; the demands can be great and sometimes you have one shot to hit it.
It was around my 7th year shooting professionally and hating camera straps, so I started to play around looking for a new idea. Fast forward a few years, and the BLACKRAPID camera sling was created. It revolutionized the camera strap market in 2008, “Turning the camera world upside down.”
Today, I shoot only for myself. My main focus has been BLACKRAPID and creating a culture behind the brand. That culture is our trademark, “Live The Moment.”
We have created a strap that helps the working photographer with your long days of shooting, so you can live your moment in comfort.
Our Breathe material and cross-body sling design helps keep a balance of weight. Once you try it you get it… You will forget you have a camera on.
KICKSTANDS UP JUNE 22 – 27 UTAH
Let’s go explore, men and women both, and Live The Moment on two wheels as we shoot photos along the way. I love the state of Utah, there is no other place like it. Click here for details.
We will be giving out the Wander Lanyard Smartphone Safety Tether System plus Cross Shot Camera Straps, to help you get the shot.
Photographer Ron Henry is the founder of BLACKRAPID, based in Seattle, Washington. Ron was the first to turn the camera world upside down in 2008. He now shoots for himself when he travels, photographing motorcycles, music, street life and dogs.
