Unique Photo at NJFCC’s Photorama @ Monmouth University

Unique Photo's Gene and Jason at Photo Rama

Partnered with Lowepro Unique Photo attended the recent “Photorama” presented by the New Jersey Federation of Camera Clubs at Monmouth University with featured speaker Bob Krist.

Bob’s lecture to over 200 attendees showed his extensive work  from his worldwide travels from everywhere from Albuquerque to Africa showing everything from portraiture to landscapes.  What better product to show during a travel photography lecture then the bags of Lowepro.

With a variety of bags on display from our new state of the art showroom Unique Photo representatives offered special prices and discounts for Photorama attendees where they were able to see, touch, and even load their existing photo equipment into bags that they were able to walk away with.  For many this was a chance of a lifetime as like Bob they were about to embark on travels and needed to find the best photo bags they could find.

We sold the highly popular Slingshot series bags to photographers who were traveling on motorcycles but needed quick access to their cameras while on their bikes, Dry Zone series bags to those going into the water, all the way down in size to the Rezo series to fit a couples G10 to take with them to visit their grandchildren next week.

As always it was our pleasure to attend photographic events where the passion for photography is first and foremost, our most sincere thanks to Lowepro and the NJFCC along with all who made it possible for us to attend this truly great event.
