  the gordy's camera straps team

 

All our straps are made on the south end of Whidbey Island, just north of Seattle. I started making these straps in 2005. The days where I could do it all myself are gone. Now it takes a team. Here are the faces of the Whidbey Islanders who bring you gordy's camera straps.

 

 

 

 

 

Gordy

The founder of Gordy's camera straps. Gordy designs the camera straps and oversees the running of the business. He designs and maintains the website and does the product photography and instructional videos. Photography has been his passion since he purchased his first camera at age 13.

 

 

 

 

Robby

The making of the straps start with Robby. He cuts the hides into straps. He also makes the pads, strap bumpers, and tripod screws. He drops the supplies off at our assembler's homes and picks up finished straps. Then he becomes our shipping department and packages and mails the camera straps. Robby also happens to be Gordy's saxaphone playing son. In the summer he can be found at all the music festivals in the Northwest.

 

 

 

 

Kim

Kim has been with gordy's camera straps the longest (except for Gordy). She trains our assemblers, oversees quality control, and puts the orders together for the assemblers. In the spring and summer Kim can be found in her garden.

 

Tassa

 

 

 

Tassa

Tassa is one of our assemblers making gordy straps. She grew up on whidbey Island where she mostly learned to play well with others. She became a barista in Seattle, worked at a theater company in Brooklyn, made pizza and learned to tango on Maui, and then studied french pastry in France and Port Townsend, Washington. Tassa is now a proud member of the Gordy Strap team and has an obsession with cats and learning the secrets of the universe.

 

 

 

 

Briar

Briar is one of our assemblers making gordy straps. She is another passionate gardner, originally from New Zealand. 

 

 

 

 

Jenny

Jenny is our Director of Customer Happiness. She sends shipping notices, and answers customer's questions. She also runs our Facebook page and keeps the books. She is the only member of our team not living on Whidbey Island but she did grow up here. She is Gordy's eldest daughter. When not working behind the scenes for gordy's camera straps she is herding 3 dogs, 2 kids, and a husband in the Army at Vilseck, Germany who is keeping us safe. She is also an iphoneographer, and a good one!
