    My mom and I are going on a road trip from GA -> CT in a few weeks and we plan to go to a crystal cave, ziplining, and a motel that has resident llamas, among a few other sweet locations along the east coast. Because I’m coming home for the whole summer I’m bringing my two rats with me, and they can’t stay in the hot car while we go to all these places, so they’re coming along with us in an animal carrier.

    I’m going to take photos of my mama holding my rats at every place we stop (she does not like rats) and make a little zine out of it for myself and my mom. I’m not sure what it means yet but the idea of the series makes me smile and so I’m going to do it.

    My grandfather’s nikon F2 is just broken. He bought it in the early ’60s to go on safari. He gave it to my father for his camerastudies in the ’80s and I used it the last 10 years. Now the rubbers to keep the light out of the body are rotten and it’s pretty much unrepairable.

  • I would take it into the desert for 40 days. I would roll around in the dirt for the first few weeks and really test it to make sure its up to snuff. Then I would find some poisonous sneaky little snakes and get them to bite the strap. The real crazy part is that I wouldn’t even have the antiserum to revive the strap. Then I would let some lizards use it to make a little nest so they can lay their eggs. After the firstborn of the lizard eggs had hatched I would clothe it in the DSPTCH strap. Then, and only then, would it be fit for a camera.

    Recently I spent all of my money on a Leica M4 and because I’m completely broke, I am currently using a shoestring with two keychain rings as a strap. While ghetto accessories have their charm, one of these straps would be a lot more comfortable!

    If I win I’d take it to wherever cheap flight deals will take me this summer (hopefully Eastern Europe), where I will photograph the streets and take portraits of strangers.

  • erica

    i would attach these to my camera and take it on my bike ride from work — through soho, across the bridge, through south williamsburg and down to crown heights. great characters and scenes to document at every turn!

  • seebas

    Definitely would use it when I study abroad in Germany in the Spring.

  • Jesse

    id take it to fernie and take my first picture of the first rainbow i see :]

  • Mike Corcoran

    I am currently in Seoul, South Korea until September 29th. I have a Nikon L35 that I would love to carry around with me around Seoul while I am exploring old fortifications and getting drunk off shitty Korean alcohol on the streets with locals who hate westerners.

  • marcos

    i would fly to the moon and take a nice photo of planet earth.

  • Difa dwi astari

    bogor botanical garden. not too far from my neighbourhood

    i just love the trees, the airs, the winds and the sun :)

  • Felicia Roque

    I’d take photos of places I’ll visit, people I’ll meet, and memories I’ll make — for the reference of my future children and grandchildren of what an awesome life I had.

  • Benjamin Walters

    I’m flying to London mid-June to start a round the world trip, and like always I will be taking my two film cameras for my street and portrait work – A Pentax K1000 and an Olympus Mju-II (as pictured!)

  • Sean Ellingson

    Fly over to Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. Strap up and shoot pics of the thousands of mopeds and motorbikes cruising the city streets. Vroom Vroooooooom Vrooooooooooom :-)

  • mickeyf19

    To the mountains of Yosemite all the way from Iowa! I’d shoot the gorgeous landscapes and my camp there, of course.

  • Justin

    I will take it to where the wild things are. The camo strap will help me blend in to the environment so I can capture the wild things on film

  • Jacquie George

    Where wouldn’t I take it? But for a trip planned in fall to go to Nova Scotia and New Brunswick it would be perfect to help keep my camera safe when leaning over for those fantastic shots of ocean life!

  • Jack D. Bradley

    That braided camo wrist strap would sure look good going on an adventure through some Florida woodlands!

  • Hannah.A.

    My father has traveled just about everywhere and during that timr he has made friends.. all over the world. The first place I would ever go is Iran. It sounds insane, but America just sterotypes Ira as a terroristic, anti-american, sharia lawed country of extremist– not true. Anyway I would go to iran because I love culture in all forms, and Iran has to be one of the most colorful countries in the middle east. The point is i love color and creation, and I want to flee as soon as possible.

  • Hannah.A.

    I would take it where ever i go, and hopefully that will be across Europe- from England to Russia- and Asia – from China down to Indonesia.

  • David Panduro

    I would take it to San Francisco, do some street photography and then even to Outsidelands Music Festival in August!

  • Sara T

    I would take it on my next camping trip to San Clemente or Santa Barbara it would come in so handy taking photos of the view and my drunk friends! (I’m new to California so everything is new to me still)

  • Dallas

    The first place I’d take them is the next place I go when I leave the house. They would go everywhere I would waiting for the next thing that catches my eye. We’d be inseparable.
    please and thank you-send me the straps-my Grandpa’s old camera deserves to be strapped in style!

  • pianoforte

    Well, I’m currently working on a project which is a part of my dissertation. It’s basically about bicycles & cities and I’m going to Istanbul in September for this reason. Thank you.

  • Sophie

    I am going to travel through Europe this summer only by train. I will travel with two good friends and I would love to photograph them while on the train, in the endless, hot, longing hours that will pass by talking and laughing and staring out of the train windows at the countries we have never been before.

  • Erick Gallardo

    The first time I did a photographic series was with two drug dealers, one of them hit my face when he saw my camera in hand. This year I will return to see the series end. This place is called Medio Mundo (Middle World), Peru.

    I would use it in my Rollei 35.

  • Kelly Bumford

    I’d take it to the villages of Malawi and the safari plains of South Africa – I’m shooting a documentary there next month and need something to carry my cameras at easy access :)

  • tduarte

    I would load my camera with Fuji pro 400H and just take a walk outside the stadium during the world cup taking shots of the crazy and happy Brazilian people around. I live in Brazil and I know how insane they can get during a soccer game :) It would be a party full of colors inside my cam.

  • Dan

    I’d go to Joe Momma’s house and take a photo of her dry spaghetti.

  • Irinelu Iacoban

    i am going to Poland in July until September and i would love to have this camera, so i can take pictures and remember all those great days in Poland whole my life.

    Heading to the Grand Canyon late this summer with a Speed Graphic (the sling strap would be great for that bad boy). Going to hike the South Kaibab trail for 4×5 shots of O’Neill Butte.

  • Matej

    I’d just do what I normally do and take them for a stroll through the local old city core for some street shots. One for my mju2, the other for my Konica c35.

  • ehc

    Going abroad alone for the first time this summer. I’d go and take a picture of me looking happy and well fed to stop my mum from worrying.

  • Alexander Grman

    These would be super rad on my fuji x100s that i take with me everyday. The stock strap is seriously lacking in style!

  • Jenna Velasco

    To the park and snap a tree!

  • JimTodd

    Wherever it were that i’d see the 1st three people after getting the camera is the place, and the people are the subject to the shoot with ultra dynamics.

  • Casey Bird

    Meeting my boyfriend in Berlin (long distance) for his 30th in June and i’d love to use it to snap a picture of us there!

  • Evaldas

    Go paragliding straight to the sky and take the pic from above.

  • Ken

    Will take them with me when I head back to my homeland (Singapore) for a visit and to capture the moments & expression of our granddad as we surprise him at his 90th birthday celebrations.

  • Agnes Thor

    I would like to bring the straps on a hiking/roadtrip to Utah that I’m doing later in June, photographing landscapes and the small towns we’ll visit. (But would probably be so excited if I won that I immediately would go out and try them out in my backyard and take some photos of that)

  • hannahmargerine .

    I’d take it with me to Berlin and Amsterdam. I’m going on a history tour there to see all the historical sights such as the Berlin Olympic stadium and Anne Frank’s house because I think it’s going to be a really really touching, emotional trip and I’d love to document it!

  • yolu

    capturing my last moment with my high school friends before continue to go to college in another country

  • joshua larsen

    Im going to my family cabin on Hornby Island this summer, and there are the most amazing sandstone bluffs that drop straight into the sea. I would need the straps because strong gusts of wind -which bend trees to the ground- can easily take a loved possession from ones hands into the void. That is were I would take them.

  • bank

    hi am bank from Thailand. It nice camera
    am go back to my hometown in Ratchaburi take picture of my mom and dad

  • Lukas Zerbst

    Since I finally met a group of theater-people, that is worth paying more than the usual low-wages for my artistic collaboration, i’m looking forward to spend the money visiting my little brother in Kenya at the end of the year. Due to the fact that I haven’t left Europe for the past 9 years I’m pretty sure there is going to be lots of beautiful stuff to take pictures of !

  • Charles Smith

    I am on day 45 of my own home “Marker’ business and need a strap for my camera to take product pic’s. Making Bags and totes.
    The strap It will help with not droping the camera from the bandages’ on my fingers from all the sawing

  • Amanda

    I would take it to four different grocery stores. One in a privileged part of town another in a gentrified area, a rural one and then in a lower income neighborhood. I would stake out the parking to get candid customer shots and then in store for internal environmental differences.

    • Amanda

      Then submit it to Boooooooom!

  • jake costello

    I’d go to the international space staion. But all I’d shoot would be selfies.

    I’m working on an Archaeology survey of Inca and early Spanish architecture in the southern highlands of Peru later this summer. I’ll be shooting some of the most incredible masonry in the world.

  • 40 miles of bad road

    I’d bring it to the darkest pits of hell, also called Oslo Central Station. Where I shoot most of my street photos. I will need some rugged straps to keep my Contax safe from the junkie vultures!

Photographer Spotlight: Angeles Peña

“Aguas de Montaña” is a journey into The Andean Patagonia, a desolate territory where photographer Angeles Peña lived all of her childhood.

She says, “In a world that spins faster and faster I feel an enormous necessity to focus on the details and the beauty of what still remains. I find myself with a nature that sustains itself but can fall at any moment. It is something that surpasses me and I cannot stop observing.”
