PimpYourCam teamet laver såkaldte OOAK – one of a kind styling. Det vil sige, at du finder et design udfra en af deres allerede eksisterende, og kan så tilføje elementer. Herefter er det design du har valgt ikke længere tilgængeligt. Det man rent praktisk gør, er at sende sit kamera og eventuel optik et smut til Tyskland. Teamet bag stylingfirmaet er fotografen Jens Brüggemann og airbrush kunstneren Torsten Rachu.
Mange vil sikkert mene, at et større DSLR i forvejen tiltrækker sig opmærksomhed, og den bliver bestemt ikke mindre af at kameraet er sort og gult. Der er en del forskellige designs på deres Facebookside. Kunne du finde på at få speciallakeret dit kamera, optik, eller er det helt ude i skoven. Giv dit besyv med herunder nyheden.
Herunder billedet kan du læse den engelske version af pressemeddelelsen fra PimpYourCam.
LIFE IS COLOURFUL! PHOTOGRAPHY IS HAVING FUN! ⇒ PIMP YOUR CAM!
True to the principle “be unique”, the PIMP YOUR CAM . COM team are now offering the opportunity to personalise the usually dull black (or at least single-coloured) body of your camera (and your lenses).
The team is made up of the well-known Dusseldorf advertising photographer and photography book author Jens Brüggemann and the Berlin airbrush artist Torsten Rachu.
Life is colourful – so why only take photos with a boring black camera? Jens Brüggemann asked himself and the idea to transform colourless cameras into distinctive works of art was born.
Torsten Rachu, who is responsible for the conception and creative implementation of the designs, has decades of experience in airbrush design. His customers include the global players BlackBerry, Electronic Arts, Disney, Siemens, Sega, Sky, Sony, Nokia, Nintendo, Eidos, Micky Maus Magazin, Microsoft, Bombardier Transportation, Coca-Cola, Haribo, Warner Music, O2, Otis, etc. He has even designed a mobile phone for the Queen!
Every camera is unique increasing its value considerably. The design also provides a high recognition value and thus offers good protection against theft. For those customers, who want a really personal touch, an individual design can be agreed with the PIMP YOUR CAM . COM team in advance for a small extra charge which is calculated according to the actual additional work required.
The styling process has undergone extensive testing and professional photographers have tested the use of the airbrushed cameras. Proven treatment methods to prepare the camera and the use of special paints and coatings guarantee the long term durability of the design.
Photography is twice as much fun with PIMP YOUR CAM . COM!
The team works with selected specialist retailers where the product will be available worldwide from the end of July 2012. The customer can then order their selected design directly in the camera shop when they buy a new camera. It is also possible to add a design to existing photographic equipment.
The customer can choose the design they would like from the selection provided on the PIMP YOUR CAM . COM internet site. The design will be deleted from the system immediately following the receipt of the order in order to guarantee uniqueness. It is also possible to add an individual design (for example a company logo). The PIMP YOUR CAM . COM team will fulfil all possible camera design requests!
