Max is a reportage photographer based in London, England.
He contacted me recently to see if I could help him out.
He'd purchased a Minolta webbing strap through Ebay which had a rubber shoulder pad and wanted to know if I could
supply a leather alternative to the webbing supplied.
We decided on the Italian Dakota leather and it was made up to the measurements supplied by Max. As it was to be fitted
directly to the triangular split rings we needed to leave the
ends of the strap 'open'. The answer to this was to utilise
'chicago screws' which only need a screwdriver to fit.
The following photos show the results.
