I like to think of myself as very minimalist especially when traveling.
However, being a photographer, (especially a film photographer whose rolls of film need to be hand checked and with me at all times 😱), has proven to be quite the task.
So when it came to creating a functional camera bag, a lot of needs had to be met! It took 10yrs of experience as a photographer to finetune the #abacusaaronbag
1. Is it functional?
Can it protect my gear and my personal items?
2. Is it practical?
How quickly can I get through airport security? Easily remove my laptop without spilling my entire bag content out?
Can it hang off a suitcase without wrestling with the straps and especially if I’m dashing to get to my gate 😬 🏃🏻♀️ .
3. Longevity. Will it start to disintegrate on me after 6 months?
4. Last but not least. Ethics. Is it promoting craftsmanship and supporting actual artisans vs a heartless corporation?
