SANTA ROSA, CALIFORNIA – Think Tank Photo announces the Digital Holster 150, a camera holster designed to offer quick access and transport for your super telephoto zoom lenses. With the versatility of a 150–600mm, you don’t need a backpack full of lenses to shoot wildlife or sports photography.

The Digital Holster 150 is a top-loading solution that minimizes the weight and bulk of bigger bags so you can focus on the action. Wear the holster comfortably on a belt or over the shoulder, so you’re ready to shoot at a moment’s notice.
 
“Sports and Wildlife photography requires rapid reaction times and quick gear access,” said Doug Murdoch, Think Tank CEO and Lead Designer. “The Digital Holster 150 delivers on both fronts, ensuring that your 150-600mm-attached camera is at-the-ready when you see your shot.”

From Think Tank Photo:
 
Santa Rosa, Calif. – Being a photographer is about getting to the right location at the right time — which can often be challenging. To help photographers protect their lenses from the rigors of travel, Think Tank Photo has just released the Lens Case Duo series of six quick-access, dual-opening padded lens cases. A zippered lid and side opening is a unique feature compared to other lens cases.
 
With the Lens Case Duo, photographers can protect their delicate lenses while transporting them in rolling cases, backpacks or shoulder bags. These cases can then be converted into a modular system for quick access in a bag or on a belt. A shoulder strap is included for the six larger sizes: Lens Case Duo 5, Lens Case Duo 10, Lens Case Duo 15, and Lens Case Duo 20, Lens Case Duo 30, and Lens Case Duo 40. Two exterior stretch pockets provide space for a lens cap or a cleaning cloth. Soft zipper protectors and a plush lining protect sensitive and expensive lenses from scratches. All sizes come in black and green.
 
“The Lens Case Duo should be used by every photographer concerned about protecting their lenses, especially while in transit,” said Doug Murdoch, Think Tank Photo’s President and lead designer. “While our roller and backpack dividers provide ample protection, the Lens Case Duo provides just that extra protection layer that could help prevent damage in unforeseen circumstances.”

Think Tank Photo’s Upgraded Retrospective Shoulder Bags Feature Increased Photography Gear Security and Lighter Weight
 
Santa Rosa, Calif. – When Think Tank Photo first released the Retrospective shoulder bag series, they took the photo industry by storm. Think Tank has now upped the ante with the Retrospective V2.0. While retaining the soft, form-fitting design, they are lighter than the original. For greater security, the Retrospective shoulder bags now feature a zippered opening under the main flap that tucks away when not in use. Each bag has a dedicated interior tablet or laptop pocket, luggage handle pass-through, and a compressible water bottle pocket. Think Tank also improved its innovative “Sound Silencer” closure, allowing photographers to work more quietly.
 
The Retrospective V2.0 shoulder bags come in five sizes:
 
  • Retrospective 5 V2.0 – Fits a standard DSLR or Mirrorless body with a 17–40mm f/4 lens attached and a 9” tablet. Examples include a Canon 5DMIV with a 50mm f/1.8 attached, 24–70mm f/2.8, and an iPad Mini; or a Sony a7RIII with a 24–70mm f/4 attached, 16–35mm f/4, 55mm f/1.8, and an iPad Mini.
  • Retrospective 7 V2.0 – Fits a standard DSLR with a 24–70mm f/2.8 attached, 70–200mm f/2.8 unattached, flash, 10” tablet, and a 13” laptop. Examples include a Nikon D850 with 24–70mm f/2.8 attached, 70–200mm f/2.8, and a SB-5000 AFSpeedlight; or a DJI Mavic Pro drone, controller, batteries and accessories.
  • Retrospective 10 V2.0 – Fits a gripped DSLR with a 24–70mm f/2.8 attached, 10” tablet, 12” laptop, 70–200mm f/2.8 unattached, and a flash. Examples include a Nikon D5 with a 24–70mm f/2.8 attached, 70–200mm f/2.8 unattached, and a SB-5000 AFSpeedlight.
  • Retrospective 20 V2.0 – Holds a gripped DSLR with 70–200mm f/2.8 attached or a 300mm f/2.8 unattached, 24–70mm f/2.8, 10” tablet, 12” laptop, and a flash. Examples include a Nikon D5 with a 70–200mm f/2.8 attached, 14–24mm f/2.8, 50mm f/1.8, and a SB-5000 AFSpeedlight.
  • Retrospective 30 V2.0 – Fits two gripped DSLRs with a 24–70mm f/2.8 and 16–35mm f/2.8 attached, 70–200mm f/2.8 unattached, and a 15” laptop. Examples include two Nikon D5 bodies with a 24–70mm f/2.8 and 14–24mm f/2.8 attached, 70–200mm f/2.8 unattached, and an iPad.
“Reflecting on your past work helps you be more creative in the future,” said Doug Murdoch, Think Tank’s President and lead designer. “When we designed the original Retrospective shoulder bag series, we looked back on our personal experience for inspiration. We wanted to bring back the classic canvas look that is soft yet durable — but doesn’t look like a camera bag full of expensive gear. The Retrospective V2.0 series combines all our experience as photographers and product designers into a highly functional yet timeless camera bag.”

Its dedicated laptop pocket fits up to a 17” laptop in a padded sleeve, a 10” tablet, or an Eagle Creek Medium Clothing Folder for overnight trips.

Our Airport Advantage roller, which is designed to hold the maximum amount of gear that will fit in overhead bins or under seats on commuter or regional jets, was named “Best Camera Bag” by the judges of the 2017 Lucie Technical Awards. The Lucie Technical Awards honor large and small companies, as well as the individuals who have advanced the photographic industry in a given year.
 
“It is a tremendous honor for the Airport Advantage to be named a winner of this prestigious technical award,” said Think Tank Photo’s president and lead designer Doug Murdoch. “With this, our smallest rolling camera bag, we help photographers solve one of their biggest headaches, which is how to keep their very expensive gear near them at all times on regional aircraft, as opposed to it being tossed into the hold.”

Photographers Can Fit Lighting Equipment and Large Light Modifiers in One Rolling Bag with Think Tank Photo’s New Production Manager 50
 
Santa Rosa, Calif. – Think Tank Photo has released the largest rolling photography equipment case on the market, the Production Manager 50. Designed to hold an immense amount of gear, including lighting equipment and large light modifiers, one photographer will now be able to transport what it used to take up to at least two assistants. It is easy to move, carry, work out of, and stack among other gear.
 
This large rolling bag features stabilizing, wide-set, shock-absorbing wheels that roll smoothly and hold up under the toughest conditions, the ability to lock the main compartment and secure the bag with the included lock and cable, and a fully customizable interior with dividers to protect small and large lighting equipment including c-stands and large modifiers.
 
“Pro photographers usually travel by car or van to where they are going to shoot,” said Doug Murdoch, Think Tank’s CEO and Lead Designer. “Once a shoot is completed the set needs to be torn down and moved to the next location. Often times, there can be a time crunch where all the gear has to be loaded quickly. Carrying these bags up and down stairs and over rough terrain can be very cumbersome and often takes two people. The Production Manager 50 makes this time-sensitive, cumbersome process easier and quicker.”

  • Ergonomic top handle for rolling or carrying by two people.

The National Press Photographers Association (NPPA) today named Think Tank Photo as the winner of the 2016 J. Winton Lemon Fellowship Award. The honor is given to those who render continuing outstanding service in the interests of press photography and for outstanding technical achievement in photography. Previous winners include Canon, Nikon, Sony, Fuji, and Adobe Systems.
 
Think Tank Photo Founders Photo 10th Anniversary

Founded in 2005 by designers Doug Murdoch and Mike Sturm, and Pulitzer Prize winning photojournalist Deanne Fitzmaurice and veteran photojournalist Kurt Rogers, Think Tank is a group of designers and professional photographers focused on studying how photographers work, and developing inventive new carrying solutions to meet their needs. By focusing on “speed” and “accessibility,” it prepares photographers to Be Ready “Before The Moment,” allowing them to document those historic moments that reflect their personal visions and artistic talents.
 
“When we started Think Tank over 10 years ago, we vowed to serve the needs of NPPA members and other working photographers,” said Doug Murdoch, Think Tank’s CEO and lead designer. “It is an extreme honor to be named for such an illustrious award, especially by an organization we hold in such high regard. We believe photojournalists and other press photographers and videographers serve such a high purpose in helping convey the truth, especially in settings where they often have to put their lives at risk.”
 
Winton Lemen was a charter member of the NPPA. In 1952, after a distinguished career as a news photographer at the Rocky Mountain News, Pittsburgh Press, and Buffalo Times, he established the photo press markets division of the Eastman Kodak Co. and served as the firm's liaison with news photographers.

Santa Rosa, CA – September 11, 2014 – Think Tank Photo’s newest “About A Photograph” short film features the disturbing story behind Getty photographer John Moore’s stark image of Ebola virus victims who await their fate in a clinic waiting room in the Liberia’s capital of Monrovia.
 
“It was a horrific scene. There were people who were healthy and people who were unhealthy all in the same rooms,” said Moore. "In fact, when I went back there were people who had died overnight in the same room with living people.”
 
Moore continued, “I don’t do these things because they are dangerous, I do them because they are difficult.”
 
John Moore is a senior staff photographer for Getty Images. He has been honored four times from World Press Photo for both domestic and international work. The Overseas Press Club awarded him the prestigious Robert Capa Gold Medal for his work in Pakistan and the John Faber Award for his work in the refugee camps in Zaire. Both Pictures of the Year International and the National Press Photographers Association have named him the photographer of the year. He was part of the Associated Press team that won the 2005 Pulitzer Prize for Breaking News Photography for coverage of the war in Iraq and, as a Getty staffer, was a finalist for the 2012 Pulitzer for Breaking News Photography for his coverage of the Arab Spring.
 
Moore joined Getty Images in 2005 based in Islamabad, Pakistan until July 2008. During that time he worked throughout South Asia, Africa and the Middle East, and particularly in Pakistan, where he courageously captured the assassination of Benazir Bhutto. After graduating from the University of Texas at Austin in 1990, Moore joined the Associated Press, first based in Nicaragua, then India, South Africa, Mexico and Egypt. He has photographed in more than 75 countries on five continents

8/27/2014 – Photography is easy. Good photography is hard. To aid aspiring and experienced photographers in honing their art and craft, we launched a weekly blog column, “Ask the Pros,” that solicits insights from top pro photographers.
 
The column is located at: blog.thinktankphoto.com/2014/08/thinktankphoto-asks-the-pros-photo-q-and-a/
 
The first column asks 14 leading professional photographers, "What techniques do you use with people who don't want to be photographed?" Their answers run the gamut, from “I avoid photographing people who do not want to be photographed” to “flattery goes a long way.”
 
“Ask the Pros” features luminaries from all fields of professional photography. They include David Burnett (named one of the "100 Most Important People in Photography"), Pulitzer-winning photojournalists Al Diaz, Deanne Fitzmaurice, and Vince Laforet, photojournalist, member of VII Photo, and a National Geographic contributor Ed Kashi, street photographer Alex Coghe, architectural and design photographers Dallas Dahms and Mike Kelley, digital innovator and eclectic shooter Falcon, photography publisher Jose Atunes, documentary and humanitarian photographers Ziv Koren, Melissa Lyttle and Ami Vitale, and commercial photographer Nathan Pask.
 
“It’s fascinating how just one insight can emancipate a photographer. By posing the same question to these photography luminaries, who come from such different perspectives, ‘Ask the Pros’ surrounds the answer with an immense amount of knowledge learned the hard way,” said Deanne Fitzmaurice, Think Tank Photo co-founder. “Our hope is that the richness and depth of their answers will accelerate other photographers’ learning curves.”

Think Tank Photo’s newest About A Photograph video features USA Today photographer Robert Hanashiro’s remembrances of shooting images of the late Robin Williams.
 
August 17, 2014 – Think Tank Photo’s newest About A Photograph video features USA Today photographer Robert Hanashiro’s remembrances of shooting images of the late Robin Williams, as well as actor Dustin Hoffman. About A Photograph can be found at blog.thinktankphoto.com/about-a-photograph
 
“Telling Robin Williams to stay still was almost impossible,” said Hanashiro. “I always go into these celebrity shoots a little nervous, even though I’ve been doing this for 25 years. I always appreciated him making me feel relaxed. And when I’m relaxed I can make a whole lot better photography.”
 
Hanashiro continues, “I remember the first time I met him. I knocked on the door of the hotel room and he answered the door, which was very surprising. He just looked at me and asked, ‘Who might you be?’ And he just laughed. Robin Williams was the best of the best.”
 
“It’s sad that he’s gone because he was such a great character, a person who made us all laugh and all cry. I got to admit that when I’d heard he’d passed away, I was, very, very sad. Not only because he was such a great subject, but a great person to be around.”
 
For over two decades, Hanashiro has been the West Coast staff photographer for USA TODAY, the country’s largest general interest daily newspaper. He has covered every major sports event imaginable from the Super Bowl to the Final Four to the World Series to the NBA Finals. He has also covered 12 Olympic Games. Hanashiro’s duties for “The Nation’s Newspaper” also include coverage of the entertainment industry, making portraits of many of the world’s leading actors, directors, and musicians. He also covers the major awards shows, including the Grammy, Emmy, Golden Globe, and Screen Actors Guild Awards. For the past four years Hanashiro has been one of just four photographers covering the Academy Awards from backstage.
