I started my photography path back in 2014 joining the wedding photography industry. Back then I was a Canon 5D shooter and over the years tried many types of camera strap systems from wrist straps, neck straps and even the double camera sling system!
The one thing that I found was that all of these custom straps were really expensive! Later I moved over to the Fuji system and decided to purchase a rope strap for my X100F. Again searching the net I found that these straps were really expensive considering their simple design.
So what did I do? Well I designed and created my own rope camera straps. I tested the market and advertised a few on the usual auction site, and to my surprise they started to sell! From that moment my camera strap business began and has grown year on year.
I recently re-branded my store to “Woodgate Camera Straps” and added a beautiful line of leather straps.
