Langly, Where Fashion Meets Function...

Hello everyone!

It has been absolutely crazy at HQ these days - we are in full swing of wedding season, and it is awesome. Tons of work, but we ARE NOT complaining! A little quieter than usual on here, but I promise I will try to keep up with the updates!

LANGLY Camera Bags

So...what is this Langly I speak of? Well, my dear old friend and fab film-maker and photographer, Evan Lane is the man behind Langly. He has designed one of the coolest photo bags I have ever seen. Evan says, "As a working freelance photographer, I am always in need of something to protect my camera gear. It has been my on-going mission to find the perfect camera bag: one that isn't only functional but also fashionable. Most bags are usually one but not the other. I decided to make my own bag, a backpack that meets the needs of the photographer on the go. My intended goal is to put a camera bag on the market that will meet the needs of photographers and camera enthusiasts everywhere."

Well, it is fashionable AND highly functional. Not to mention super high quality, waterproof and spacious! So great to be able to take it around the world without screaming "STEAL ME, I AM PHOTOGRAPHY EQUIPMENT!!!" I can not wait to get my hands on one - and when I do, you can expect a full blog post with photos and maybe even a little video so you can see how awesome it is!

Now, here is the thing... you are probably thinking "why are you plugging it even though you don't have one?" Fair enough, but here is the reason: No one does! Langly is only a prototype right now, and trying to get funding for its first run - to the tune of $30,000.00!! With every attempt to raise this money, Evan has turned to the fantastic Kick Starter, a website dedicated to helping great projects get off the ground by having people of the public donate money as "backers" and have a part in the development and future of the project...for as little or as much as you can donate. Such a cool idea, and I am proud to say that we have invested in Evan and his gorgeous bags!

Check it out for yourself, I was very confused when I first heard about it too. These donations don't go unnoticed or un-thanked - depending on the amount you give, you will get a gift in return from Evan, and all those who donate will get at the very least, a discount on your very own Langly bag!

Please take a sec to check out Langly, and get behind a great start-up company with a fantastic product, and the hardest working owner/designer I have ever met. Better yet, help spread the word, donate and get one of these bags for yourself! You can help spread the word by re-tweeting this:
