Custom Leather Camera Straps & Keepsake
At FOTO, we’re in it for the stories. In 2011, a life-altering story revealed itself to photographer Katie Norris during her photoshoot with a terminally ill infant and his heroic parents. Profoundly affected by the experience, Katie was determined to find a way to empower others into sharing their own stories of hope, triumph, beauty, and compassion—and so FOTO came into being. We were first inspired to design a durable, comfortable, and stylish custom leather camera strap that would provide photographers with convenient means to capture impromptu stories wherever they presented themselves.
This first custom camera strap, the James, is named after the baby James who we find strength and inspiration from every single day. The James soon gave way to further custom camera strap designs before leading to a legion of genuine leather goods for storytellers of every medium. We now lovingly design and provide soft leather journals, totes, shoulder pads, and luggage tags.
