I’ve heard mention of Tether Tools by fellow photographers for quite some time now, but it was during a hands-on demonstration at Photoshop World (PSW) when I finally realized what all the hype was about! Seriously, if you are a studio shooter, their stuff is a must have. After getting the Tether Tools 411 from my friend and very talented photog, Erik Valind, I bought a handful of their products on-the-spot at PSW. Within another six months, I’ve purchased almost every product they sell. BEWARE, it’s a borderline addiction… check out my gear list if you don’t believe me along with the image of my setup below.
Besides acquiring a new photo-gear sweet-tooth, I was also introduced to the owners of the company, Lauren and Josh. It was a real pleasure to meet such a genuinely nice couple who made it a point to speak with everyone who stopped by their booth! Also, it took less than a minute to realize that they are undoubtedly committed to fulfilling our studio equipment needs by offering the best tether gear one could ask for. With that said, I was quite honored several months later when they asked if I would interview for their monthly Photographer Spotlight. Of course I said, “Yes!” and you can click here to read the full interview.
