On my list of things to wish for....

I'm not normally the coveting type. Not very materialistic. Not really noticing what other people have that I don't. But there IS this one thing that I don't have that I would just LOVE to have. It's a Shootsac. And it's a beautiful thing.

I admittedly blogstalk several photographers on a daily basis, many of whom happen to live in California. (Apparently that's the land of photographers?) Jessica Claire is one of these photographers and she has designed the most FABULOUS shooting bag. It's made of neoprene
(the stuff scuba divers wear) so it keeps your lenses extremely safe, it hugs your body, and it looks just like a messenger bag (read: cute!). Extra bonus: It has removable, replaceable covers.

I've been pondering the purchase of one of these bags for quite a while, but it's the price tag that gets me. Even though every photographer who has one SWEARS they are the best thing on earth.....seriously.....$179?

I know. So here's what I'm proposing to you. I am announcing the first ever National Photographer Appreciation Day! That's right, ladies and gentlemen, a day for you to appreciate all the photographers in your life! I know, I'm so nice. This special holiday will take place on Thursday, April 9th. Why that date? Well because, Thursdays are kind of boring without national holidays, don't you think?

Now, should I happen to be your favorite photographer, here is a small gift suggestion for you. Shootsac offers gift certificates starting at just $25. One certificate from a very appreciative friend or client would be great, but you know, seven would pretty much get me the whole package.

I'm just sayin...

For those of you photographers who are blogstalking me.....please let me know if you have one and what you think of these! (Although I'm pretty sure you love yours....just like everybody else!)

I love my shootsac. I just got mine a week ago and used it on a shoot recently. Buy it, and don't look back.
