Tales from the Field: A Day at the Races

One of the best parts of this job is hearing back from our customers, people we've helped with our products. 

A lot of those customers are professional photographers who use our gear to go about their work more quickly and efficiently.  It helps them

The other group of people that we often hear back from is our senior customers.  Like 90-year-old Tom Ables.

We heard from his son Ken (full disclosure, we work with him) who sent us this email:   

"My dad, Tom Ables, has led a long and interesting life in publicity and photography. Over the years he has shot action photos for San Diego State University, the San Diego Chargers and the Del Mar racetrack. Outdoor photography too. He's 90 now and still gets out to Del Mar to take photos of the races. Having a camera hanging from his neck is not a good option for him and has limited his photo outings.

I set him up with the Wanderer because it fits on the hip, not on the chest like a camera vest, which would have affected his balance.

In August, we shot the Pacific Classic race at Del Mar.  What a difference. He was able to shoot five races, which is more than he had shot in several years."

Here are a couple more of Tom's shots from that day.
