And on top of that, she has generously donated one of her best selling camera bags to give away to one of you in our New Years Camera Giveaway! How lucky are we?! So read on as we get to know her and what her business is all about, and then be sure to enter the below giveaway for your chance to win something amazing for your photography studio!

How did you get started as a Photography Vendor?

True story. I dabbled in photography a few years back when I used to be an international flight attendant. I actually took on the job with the hopes of not only travelling, but journalizing my travels through my lens. Let’s just say I originally envisioned to become a travelling photojournalist. I mean who wouldn’t want to be one right? So I travelled to various cities, from Dubai to Australia, Paris to Egypt, Milan to Singapore you name it! To my demise however, my beloved DSLR ended up not walking on the streets of Paris, but was instead left alone in my suitcase at the hotel. The dilemma? I realized there were just no stylish alternative to the often times uninspiring black camera bags in the market out there. I would’ve had to either lug around a camera bag that screamed “loaded tourist over here!” or carry anywhere between 2-3 bags while tourist hopping all the time. With travelling and a busy lifestyle, I quickly found the need to find a bag that was not only practical and functional but also suited my lifestyle and personality. Surely i wasn’t alone in this I thought, so with a passion in design I decided to design a line of camera bags that were not only fashionable but functional and practical. A few years later, after much research and hard work, THEIT camera bags were born!

How long have you been in the Photography Vendor Industry?

Since late 2010!theit-camera-bag-featured-vendor-plus-giveaway-for-photographers

What are 3 words you would use to describe your camera bags?

Fashion forward, functional, practical.

How can your products help photographers grow their business’?

We at THEIT have recognized the importance of connecting the need for practicality and inspiration in all our busy lifestyles. Our camera bags allow photographers to be able to not only show off their creative work but their personal style as well. Just as how a new haircut could help inspire confidence, personal style (and a fashionable new camera bag!) can do just the same. That and well, our camera bags allow photographers to be able to lug around their expensive gear in places most uninspiring camera bags can’t, fashion shows, brunch dates, posh after parties, photog meets, you name it! And we all know nothing else can make you an expert in your craft than hours of practice!

How did you come up with your business name?

THEIT although read as “Tha-yt” is a play on the term “The it” . While searching for the perfect name for our line of ultra chic camera bags, I remember perusing through stores in Paris pointing at the current bag trends thinking “Why can’t THAT bag be a camera bag, or THAT bag be camera bag! I just want that “It” camera bag you know”. And hence THEIT bags!

What was the first camera bag you ever sold?

Our first design Thebossi bag in classic black!

Where do you see yourself in 5 years?

We see THEIT growing not only as a lifestyle brand but also as one of the industry’s top selling camera bags in the market. Currently we can be found in various international markets, such as Europe, New Zealand, Australia, USA and Canada, we look forward to eventually growing our family of stockists and have THEIT be available worldwide (yes, we’re listening and soon we will be coming to ALL of you!). Our customers are of course tops to us, and we’ve heard their numerous cries. So we’re happy to let you all know that we are also looking to expand our line, and are actually currently working on not only new and exciting designs but our luxury leather camera bags and accessories line as well. Don’t fret, gentlemen were also soon hoping to release camera bags just for you too! So much to look forward to, so make sure to keep an eye out for us!

    I am hoping 2015 is the year I start my business back up after being "closed" for 4 years after a few moves to new states. So Summerana can help me to begin and grow my new business!
