Patent 101
 
January issue of Professional Photography Magazine features an article on 5 photographers who solved problems with innovtion. [url]www.ppmag.com[/url]

The Domke Bag is one of the products, along with Lensbaby by Craig Strong, Wall Mirageby Michelle Wood, Radio Popper by Kevin King and Chimera/Plume lightbanks by Gary Regester.

For the Domke Bag is was a problem with the union requiring the company furnish cars to photogs. Before they had leased one for each photographer, but this contract resulted in just 7 cars for 18 photographers. We had to take a taxi or subway to the assignment. The trunk was no longer our camera bag.

It had to be a shoulder bag, but all the fishing bags and book bags wouldn't hold up. The paper said they'd buy 20 bags, I was in business.

Gary Regester says that "any good idea will be copied within a year, so he stays in front of the pack with new inventions and improvements on existing ones." He has several new products with Lowel Lights.

It doesn't appear to be on the website, it's in this months magazine. It's called Inventing 101.
