Think Tank Photo’s New Spectral Shoulder Bags Feature One-Handed Gear Access and Increased Protection from Theft and the Elements

Santa Rosa, Calif. – With Think Tank Photo’s new Spectral shoulder bags, photographers can remain inconspicuous while shooting, knowing their valuable cameras and lenses are safer from theft and the elements. A magnetic Fidlock clasp enables quiet, one-handed access to gear — and then locks automatically when closing the flap. An additional zippered closure gives peace of mind while traveling and can be tucked away when actively shooting. Constructed with durable yet stylish materials, the Spectral Shoulder Bag offers Think Tank quality and ingenuity at a reasonable price. The Spectral 8 fits one standard size DSLR body with a wide or short zoom, a 24–70mm f/2.8 detached, plus one to two small extra lens, and an eight-inch tablet. Or, it fits a Mirrorless kit with three to four lenses, including the 50–140mm. The Spectral 10 fits one standard size DSLR body with 24–70mm attached, a 70–200mm detached, one to three extra lenses, and a 10” tablet.

“For pro and serious amateur photographers who want to upgrade their camera bodies and lenses, selecting an appropriate shoulder bag is not a light decision. While they may be taking their first forays into professional-level glass, they also are monitoring their funds,” said Doug Murdoch, Think Tank Photo’s CEO and lead designer. “We designed the Spectral series with them in mind. It integrates our history of innovation and dedication to sourcing the highest quality materials, while being sensitive to a photographer’s budget.”

ThinkTankPhoto SKB Partnership http://www.klcfotos.com/blog/2017/6/thinktankphoto-skb-partnership

Our friends at Think Tank Photo have just announced an exciting new partnership with hard-case manufacturer SKB.  Think Tank’s designers have created internal divider sets, organizers, and a backpack designed specifically to fit within 10 SKB hard cases.  There are times when you simply have to airline gate-check your most precious photography equipment.  At moments like these, nothing will do a better job of protection than a hard case.  But one of the downsides of hard cases is that they are basically hard shells with not a lot of other features built into them.  Think Tank’s partnership with SKB solves this problem.  The result is the best of a hard case with the best of internal organization.  Don’t forget that with our special partnership with Think Tank that you receive free gear and free shipping when you order using our special link.

TTP: Production Manager 50 and Retrospective 6 http://www.klcfotos.com/blog/2016/4/ttp-production-manager-50-and-retrospective-6

-Promo-

Our friends at Think Tank Photo just released the largest photo lighting rolling bag ever and have added a new size and color to their popular Retrospective shoulder bag series.  The Production Manager 50 is a monster, designed to hold C-stands, multiple flash heads, power packs, monoblocks, softboxes, and light-stands.  What it used to take two people to transport, you can now do by yourself.  And, they’ve added a new color—Sandstone—to their Retrospective line, and the new Retrospective 6, which holds Mirrorless systems or a gripped DSLR.  Don’t forget, that by using these web links to order you will receive free gear and free shipping.

Photographer Resources: Payments http://www.klcfotos.com/blog/2016/5/photographer-resources-payments Payments to photographers are as follows

Assignments:

Assignments booked directly between you and the client where KLCfotos.com serves only as the means of image delivery: 100% to you

Assignments booked through KLC fotos client pays KLC fotos then KLC fotos pays you: 80% to you

(With clients that we trust and have worked with before, we will send your payment immediately after photos are uploaded, while we carry the cash flow burden waiting for the client to process the invoice.)

Royalties:

50% of the profit, always 

(the remainder of royalties is divided between the client [when applicable], the director of the division, the manager, an LLC share, and a remainder in KLC fotos as part of our operations budget)

Methods of payment:

Dwell: Our preferred method of payment. It is fast, direct, and without fees, because of this quick and automated process, we are able to send payments as they come through our system

Check: While we don't prefer check for environmental, postage and workflow reasons, we understand not everyone is comfortable with online banking. We will send checks immediately for assignments, and every $100 for royalty payments.

PayPal: We use paypal for our international vendors (until we find a better solution). If this is your preferred payment over dwolla or check, we are happy to send your payment using paypal. But be warned that we do send payments as business services and you will be charged a fee from payment to accept the payment.

Editorial, Commercial or Personal http://www.klcfotos.com/blog/2016/5/editorial-commercial-or-personal When we are asked to license a photo, the first question is always whether the client is editorial, commercial or personal. And in today's industry, the client doesn't always know. So let's break it down.

Editorial

Who is an editorial client: A news outlet. A newspaper, magazine, website or blog that publishes editorial content about a certain subject, region.

What is an editorial license: The right for an editorial client to publish an image associated with their content

What does an editorial license not entail: The right for a brand or individual to publish the image on their instagram, twitter feed, Facebook page or website. Using an image in an editorial-style does not make the license editorial if the post is associated with your commercial or personal account.

Commercial:

Who is a commercial client: Any product or brand.

What is a commercial license: The right for a company or brand to publish an image .

What does a commercial license not entail: The right from the entities depicted in the image (individuals or brands) to publish the image. While KLC fotos serves as the official photographer for multiple clients, which gives us the exclusive right to license images for commercial use, you as a commercial client, are responsible for ensuring you have the right from the organization to share images depicting their logo for commercial use as well as obtaining a model release from any of the persons depicted in the image.

Personal

Who is a personal client: An individual using the image for personal use.

What is a personal license: The right to display images for personal use. This could mean a print on a wall (or in a shoebox) in your family home, or on social media depending on the license agreement.

What does a personal license not entail: The right to share images. While some licenses include the option to post images on social media, you are not permitted to email hi-res or otherwise sub-license the image to any other individual or organization.

Having a digital copy of an image does not imply you have any rights to publish or share that image.

If you have any questions regarding what kind of client you are or what type of license you need, please don't hesitate to reach out to us!
