I am excited to announce that I’ve joined the Lowepro Storyteller team, which pulls a wonderful collection of photographers from around the world together. It is a great new initiative that Lowepro began in March and I am happy to be part of the first year of the project.
We are happy to announce the Lowepro Storytellers program, an integral part of our Loweprofessional program. Lowepro Storytellers are talented professionals who actively engage in the art and business of photography and videography – and use Lowepro bags to help them protect, organize and carry their gear. They also showcase their work on web sites, blogs and through social media platforms to stay current and connect with the imagery community at large. – Josh Semolik | Content & Community Manager
How to Follow the Lowepro Storyteller Team
Over the next 12 months, the Lowepro Storyteller team will work on two major projects: A monthly Storyteller mission and a “If My Pack Could Talk” series.
The Storyteller missions take a single theme and ask all of the team members to submit a single photo to represent it. In April, the theme was perspective and there were some absolutely stunning submissions, which you can see all in a single blog post.
The “if my bag could talk” series will feature two photographers each month and it began with a detailed look at Travis Burke’s epic hike up the Stairway to Heaven.
More about my Lowepro Gear
Since I began shooting, I’ve used Lowepro bags. I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t tempted by other companies or if I didn’t switch bags a half-dozen times, attempting to find the perfect solution to carrying my ever-changing photography kit. But no matter how often I looked around, I always ended up with a Lowepro Bag. Thanks to my participation on this project, I know have a quiver of bags to choose from and i cannot find a single complaint about the trio:
- Lowepro Pro Trekker 450AW – This is my favourite bag for carrying absolutely everything. It’s also what I carried around Iceland, during which time I reviewed the bag.
- Lowepro Rover 45L AW – An instant favourite, the Rover allows me to carry my photography gear plus essentials for a day of adventure. It’s a great pack that is just big enough to use for an overnight trip.
- Lowepro DryZone BP 40L – I haven’t used it yet, as most of the water in Canada is still frozen, but it’ll be my go-to backpack for canoe trips this summer.
