“Today I felt like I won the lottery when this little treasure arrived at my door! The note alone would have made my day, but there was a beautiful camera strap to boot. If only Katie Norris knew that I had been searching high and low for a new strap...this is beyond perfect! Thank you FOTO!!!” - Jamie S.

 

“Wow, that is actually super nice looking! Usually when I look for camera straps, they look homemade, or just not well made/cheap looking. This is beautiful! I think I need to go buy one now”

 

“I really didn't want a "crafty" (i.e. homemade) camera strap. This is VERY sturdy and the hardware on it feels substantial...almost like a high-end handbag if that makes sense. Coming from someone who is VERY picky this is a huge compliment.”

 

“I tried out the camera strap tonight and absolutely love it! The attention to detail is amazing...I can see this lasting for a LONG time. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!”

 

“If you haven't seen @FOTOstrap or the story behind @Fotolanthropy you should go check them out ... good people doing great things.” -Carrie R

 

Review by Real Moms Real Views:

You all know I love camera gear. Since I spend a lot of time with my camera, it’s important to find the best possible accessories to keep things going smoothly during shoots or while I’m out with my family. I think my search for the perfect camera strap may finally be over! I can’t even begin to tell you how many straps I have tried searching for the perfect fit, security, comfort level, and of course, style. It has been quite a hunt, but I have found “the one“! FOTOstraps!!

FOTO creates fashionable camera straps for any photographer. FOTO is also committed to giving and donates a portion of its proceeds to giving-based business Fotolanthropy. FOTOstraps are made in the USA and created with quality materials of 100% genuine leather, brass hardware and environmentally friendly duck fabric. The strap is vintage inspired and designed to compliment today’s fashion styles.The strap can also be monogrammed, which makes for the perfect gift! Add your name, monogram or even your business logo!

As soon as I saw FOTOstraps, I was immediately drawn to them. They have a great design, come in a variety of bright, vibrant colors and the leather/duck fabric combo is classic and a really pretty look. The James is an all leather strap and it is gorgeous! As soon as it arrived I immediately put it on my camera to give it a try. I was instantly impressed with the ease of attaching it to the camera body; very similar to a belt buckle on each side. With a secure buckle clasp, I know my camera is safe with the FOTOstrap. It offers a variety of lengths meaning it can work for anyone. Tall, short, big, small; simply adjust the strap and you’re set! I love that the adjustable length allows me to make it extra long {I’m pretty tall} and wear it comfortably hanging around my neck, or cross body if I need to stop shooting to pose someone or get my camera out of the way for a moment or two. FOTO even offers personalization on the leather shoulder pad of the strap. You can personalize with your name, initials or even business logo. Definitely a sweet personal touch to make this strap totally unique. The FOTOstrap is the most comfortable and fashionable strap I have ever had and I am certain it will be the only one on my camera!  I am so smitten with my new strap I am already eyeing many of the Classic Strap colors; that gorgeous Sky Classic Strap might be on my Christmas list this year! So pretty!

Fotolanthropy is a giving based business. Founded by professional photographer Katie Norris in 2011, fotolanthropy uses professional photography and film to capture true stories to inspire others. Katie then decided to follow her dream and design a camera strap to sell and a portion of the sales would help fund fotolanthropy. Fotolanthropy seeks to bring joy to families and individuals who have faced or are facing difficult circumstances by of giving our time and resources and providing them with lasting memories through photography.  We believe that by telling their story through the creative excellence of photography we are able to honor them, as well as inspire and impact others by making the stories available for anyone to see. We feel privileged to be able to interact with the heroes in the Fotolanthropy stories and hope that Fotolanthropy will be a hub of inspiration for all.

 Rent My Dust was blessed to meet Katie Norris & Brooke Moore the photographers behind Fotostrap when they stopped by to rent some of our dust for a recent photo shoot with the Fotostrap.  We wanted to bring you their beautiful images to show off our vintage "dust" but to also make you aware of these amazing Fotostraps and Fotolanthropy.”

 

Review giveaway From Professional Blogger:

 “In the summer of 2011, professional photographer Katie Norris and her assistant Brooke Moore started a giving based business centered around Katie's passion for photography and film.  Fotolanthropy captures true stories that inspire others and preserve memories that can last a lifetime. Check out some of their videos here and the one below of James who was their first story and a lot of their inspiration. These videos are truly amazing.

 

Not only did Katie have dreams of building a philanthropic business, she also dreamed of creating a camera strap and with Brooke on board FOTOstrap was made a reality. Not only are these straps environmentally friendly, but a portion of each strap sold is used to help fund fotolanthropy. They are made from 100% genuine leather + organic cotton duck fabric and manufactured right here in the US. They can also be personalized with a monogram or your business' logo!

 

"Our main goal was to create a fashionable camera strap and we were able to adopt a giving-based model in which we could give back a portion of the funds to www.fotolanthropy.com where we create short inspiring films of people facing trials. It's so great because not only will our customers get a new great looking strap but they will also be helping families that have gone through so much....we love it!"

 

I just received my strap in the mail and I absolutely adore it. I want to encourage all of you to take a visit over to their shop and website to see all the good that these lovely and talented ladies are doing!”
