Question: what is the common denominator between an African drum and a Profoto TeleZoom Reflector?
Answer: the shape. We learned this from Brooklyn-based portrait and editorial photographer Nigel Morris, who had a hard time finding a suitable bag for his beloved reflector.
“Those of you that follow this blog, know that I am a, “if all else fails, look to music instrument cases for a solution” type of guy,” Nigel writes. “The thought hit me one day. There is a drum that is similar to the shape of the Telezoom, I just have to find out the proper name for said drum, and then hit the big name music stores.”
The drum turned out to be a djembe, and thus, Nigel had found a solution.
For the record we would like to add that we do have a bag for the TeleZoom. But hats off to Nigel for his creative, out-of-the-box solution.
