This is the ongoing journal of my travels, photography, experience with people, places and equipment.
"I want to say thank you for keeping me inspired. I have lost my drive to shoot and my inspiration so many times especially during this time. So thank you for strengthening me. You are an inspiration truly!"
I have made a new bag for myself and other photographers, "The Von Cuba 55" for short trips, carry-on for the necessary stuff, or simply a short trip to the gym and back.
A travel bag, for photographers. The Von Cuba 55 in black soft Italian calfskin on the outside, with handpainted orange edging, soft alcantara on the inside. Designed by Thorsten von Overgaard and Matteo Perin.
