JAMES - SKINNY from the Lux Collection

The Skinny boasts of the same quality, personalization features, and durability as our original beloved Fotostrap. Now sleeker in design, this genuine leather camera strap is a must-have companion to keep your light-weight camera kits secure and ever-dapper.

The James fotostrap is our cognac brown leather camera strap that combines a functional design with impeccable style that is durable, classic, and timeless, all while utilizing only the best materials. The James cognac brown leather camera strap makes use of the highest-quality English Bridle vegetable-tanned leather available, which age beautifully over time. This brown leather camera strap is the most comfortable camera strap on the market thanks to its ergonomic shoulder pad. We have an adjustable length that may be worn around your neck or as a crossbody leather camera strap. Make a statement anywhere you go with our personalization option that allows photographers to showcase their brand while they shoot.

The Story:

It all started with a dream, a camera strap, and one little boy's story. The foto story starts back in 2011 when founder Katie Norris experienced a life altering photo shoot with a terminally ill infant and his brave parents. Katie saw hardship but even more strength and hope, and sought to create a camera strap that could help make a difference. Baby James became the namesake for the first Fotostrap - the James - and the inspiration behind our mission-based brand.

Recommendation:

If you do not already have split rings attached to your camera, we strongly advise you to purchase them with your order. Split rings ease the tension/tightness that occurs with small camera strap eyelets, extending the life of your camera strap. Click the link below to purchase.

Beautiful and classic

I love this strap! It is so gorgeous and elevates the look of my camera and gives me a boost of confidence!

Looks cute but feels chincy

I had really high hopes for this camera strap. Maybe too high. I guess $100 doesn't buy you a really beautiful high end leather camera strap. I don't mean that in a facetious tone. I truly might not know. I love leather. All of my camera bags and other camera straps are genuine leather. I buy genuine leather collars for my dogs. So I know what GREAT leather feels like. And the leather on this FOTO camera strap literally feels like bad pleather. I'm pretty disappointed. Since I got it personalized with my logo, I can't return it. So this will be just be a loss of $97.99, as I will likely never use it. That's how cheap I think the leather feels and looks.

Thank you for sharing your review. Our Fotostraps are made of vegetable-tanned leather - the most durable we could find - that will gain character over time. They also feature strong webbing and brass hardware that reinforce their quality and performance. You will find after some time and use your Fotostrap will begin to soften and will age really beautifully.

Love this camera strap!

I love this camera strap! I debated on ordering the Skinny or the James, and I'm glad I went with the skinny. It looks beautiful and it's so comfortable to wear. Plus I just started a photography business, so I had it personalized with my name and I absolutely love it.
