  • Where ONA Goes: Stockholm with Ivo Scholz

    September 3rd, 2014  —  Leave a Comment

    Each ONA bag is named after a place that founder Tracy Foster has traveled, all the way from Camps Bay in South Africa (where she came up with the idea for ONA) to her favorite neighborhoods in New York, like Brooklyn and Chelsea. The entire ONA team loves to travel, and we adore living vicariously through our  customers who take ONA bags to new and beautiful places.

    Although he’s based in Zurich, Switzerland Ivo Scholz and his wife Anja recently explored the city of Stockholm, Sweden with their ONA bags. Ivo is a self-taught photographer who shoots with a Fuji X-T1 and a passionate traveler. He’s constantly searching for new people and places to photograph, and found plenty of inspiration in the cobblestone streets and stunning midnight sunsets in Stockholm.

  • Announcing: Prince Street Videos

    August 22nd, 2014  —  Leave a Comment

    Shooting product videos is one of our favorite aspects of new product launches. It’s an opportunity to feature some incredibly talented photographers while exploring new neighborhoods in New York City. For the Prince Street launch, we featured husband-and-wife photographers Bee and Rog Walker. We’re in awe of their spot-on fashion sense as well as their prowess behind the camera: Bee is a traveling fashion photographer, whereas Rog specializes in environmental portraiture.   ONA Bags Fall 2014 Video Shoot with Rog & Bee Walker

  • Introducing: The Prince Street & Berlin II

    August 20th, 2014  —  3 Comments

    We design all of our bags based on customer feedback: we listen to your requests via social media and customer care, and we do our best to translate your needs and wants into the best-looking and most functional camera bags possible. You asked for a messenger bag that was bigger than the Bowery Camera Bag and Insert and smaller than the Brixton Camera and Laptop Messenger Bag: big enough to fit an iPad, a camera and one or two lenses.

    Our answer: the Prince Street Camera Messenger Bag, available in Antique Cognac and Dark Truffle leather and Field Tan and Smoke canvas. And you couldn’t get enough of the Berlin, designed specifically for the Leica M-System: the Berlin II Leica Camera Messenger Bag is now available for sale.

    Introducing our new medium-sized camera bags: compact dimensions, premium materials, definitive style. We hope you’ll enjoy them.

  • charity: water September Campaign: The Sahel

    August 18th, 2014  —  Leave a Comment

    At ONA, we believe that photos can tell powerful stories that help make a difference in the world. Charity: water, a nonprofit organization that brings clean, safe drinking water to the millions of people living without it, uses inspiring images to help tell the story of how clean water is transforming lives around the globe.

    Charity: water just launched its September Campaign, highlighting the Sahel region: it’s one of the harshest places in the world to live. The Sahel is a narrow strip of land in Africa just below the Sahara Desert. This area is frequently affected by drought and famine, and access to clean water is rare. The September Campaign wants to bring clean water to 100,000 people in the Sahel region of Mali and Niger and transform the lives of women and girls through sustainable  projects.

    When we launched the Sahel Strap last month, we wanted to bring attention to the millions of people living without clean water. Part of the proceeds from every Sahel Strap sold go directly to benefit charity: water operations, helping people like videographer Jamie Leigh Pent continue to draw attention to the international crisis of living without access to clean water. We’re proud to support the work that charity: water does, and we encourage you to get involved: you can donate directly by starting a September Campaign or purchasing a Sahel Strap.

  • Blogger Profile: Urban Pixxels

    August 6th, 2014  —  1 Comment

    We love to highlight the professional photographers who use ONA bags in our Photographer Profile series. However, we realized that there are also plenty of super-talented bloggers who take beautiful photos (and write, and edit, and share) as a living–often without any formal training or professional associations. Even when bloggers are talented writers, they often rely on photos to bring their stories to life or to share their everyday lives as a story. Jacintha Verdegaal and ONA Bowery Jacintha Verdegaal and ONA Bowery

    Jacintha of Urban Pixxels carries the Bowery in Antique Cognac Leather. 

    ONA: How did you get into blogging?
    JV: I started my blog when I moved from the Netherlands to London in April 2013. It was something that I’d wanted to do for a while. I was following some other bloggers, and I love writing and photography, but I never knew what to blog about or how to get started. In my first week in London I attended a blogger event, and after meeting all these amazing bloggers I decided to just go for it.

    ONA: What’s your favorite thing to photograph?
    JV: I love photographing people, especially when I travel. But when you look at my blog you’ll see that I often take pictures of food too.

    ONA: How does photography play a role on your blog?
    JV: Photography plays a big role on my blog. I love writing too, but with every blog post, the photos do most of the storytelling.

    ONA: What camera do you shoot with? What is your “go to” lens of choice?
    JK: I’ve been using the same camera for 7 years now, which is a Nikon D80. It’s a great camera, but I’m planning to ‘upgrade’ to a full-frame camera this year. And I think about 80% of my photos are taken with my 35mm f/1.8 lens. I always thought that I needed a big zoom lens, but I actually prefer a prime lens. It forces me to get closer to what or whom I’m photographing and it’s easier to carry around.

    ONA: What inspired you to start your blog?
    JV: I was inspired by successful travel and lifestyle bloggers. The way they shared their stories on beautiful websites with professional looking photos. I wanted to do the same now that I was starting a new life in London. Sharing my photos and stories while I was ‘connecting the dots in a new city’. It’s a great motivator to keep looking for new and interesting things to do in London, to travel the world and to improve my photography.

    ONA: In one sentence, what advice would you give to a blogger just starting out?
    JV: Meet up with other bloggers. I learned a lot from attending blogger events and meet-ups in London and other cities. Bloggers are nice people and almost all of them are willing to give advice and share their tips. Plus I made a lot of new friends this way.

    ONA: What’s your favorite post on your site and why? [i.e. the best "introduction" to what your site is all about]
    JV: It’s difficult to pick a favorite, but I especially enjoyed writing the posts about London food markets such as Brockley Market and Maltby Street Market. These places are great for taking photos of both people and food and they’re one of the reasons I love living in London so much.

    ONA: How did you hear about ONA?
    JV: I’m always looking for ‘the perfect camera bag’ (it’s a bit of an addiction). I discovered ONA after reading Lindsey’s review on her blog Lost in Cheeseland. I looked on the ONA website and fell in love with the Leather Bowery Camera Bag & Insert which is the bag I’m using today.

  • Where ONA Goes: Greece with Adrian Wood

    Adrian wears the Presidio Camera Strap in Smoke.

    The ONA team is based in New York City: we’re no strangers to calling one of the world’s top tourist destinations home. But we’re still just a little envious of Adrian Wood: not only does he shoot destination weddings in the world’s most beautiful places, but he also gets to go home to a Kefalonia, a gorgeous Greek island.  His photos are influenced by island life: wide open skies and incredible natural light effortlessly enhance engagements, elopements and weddings. Adrian carries the Union Street Messenger Bag in Ranger Tan and wears the Presidio Camera Strap while shooting–or just when relaxing on his beach at home.
