If you haven’t noticed, we sell camera straps. They’re here and here and… you get it, you know how to find your way around a website. At Riley G Designworks, we’re not so much into fashion photography as we are the fashion of photographers. For now, the lens is going to be on you for a change. Why? Because we want to reap, share and possibly copycat your secrets to expressing your coolness through clothing.
Since the crew at Riley G is pretty easygoing (this blog post is being written as I listen to Ron Pope through oversized Bose headphones, wagging my head in a dance I learned from Snoopy), our guidelines for profiling photographers aren’t crazy-strict. You have to be…
1) …a photographer (duh), either professional or an enthusiast. Our camera straps would look pretty silly attached to a tiny point-and-shoot.
2) …into fashion, particularly when shooting. To be clear, when shooting photos, not, like, deer. We’re not on the camouflage bandwagon, although this strap does have bright orange in it, so I guess we’re not totally biased.
3) …willing to talk at reasonable length about your penchant for dressing the part, whether you have a funky, offbeat image, prefer dapper duds or cater to your bad attitude (we know, you’re tough, you wear skulls and ride a motorcycle, we get it and we’re so very scared).
Know a particularly fashionable photographer? Nominate them. Think nobody’s nearly as natty as you? Nominate yourself – and then go find your modesty, will ya? After a bit of stalking – I mean research – we’ll decide if you’re a good fit for our style series and, if we heart you, we’ll send along some interview questions. Showcased nominees will score a free camera strap.

We’re not saying we’re okay with this revived trend – we’re just reporting the style news, folks.
