Rental Packages Now AvailableCompany News
“I’m shooting a wedding for the first time,” asked the nice lady on the phone. “Can you help me go over the gear I’ll need?”
That’s a question we get a lot from our newer customers who are taking on specific photo gigs like portraits and weddings for the first time. It’s a question we like hearing, because it means that more people are finding ways to make their passion pay, and that’s always a good thing.
To make things easier, we decided to introduce the concept of packages into our offerings. This is something a few customers have asked for, and we set about making the necessary modifications to our back-end system to accommodate their requests. (more…)
You Don’t Know Jack, the Canon 24-105mm LensCompany News Cool Stuff
While we receive many notes of thanks (and sometimes even small gifts) back with our rentals, every so often we receive something that knocks our socks off. We received this letter back with a Canon 24-105 lens.
Dear Borrow Lenses, I am returning this Canon EF 24-105L lens, that you so crueley numbered 20033064. I’ll have you know that this number to you has a name, and his name is Jack. Jack arrived on my doorstep Sept. 27th. I was so excited to meet my new friend. Little did I know we would soon become more. I told Jack we were going to Disney World! He was so excited, he’d been so many places and had heard other lenses and cameras talk of Disney. On October 1st, we arrived and instantly Jack showed me how happy he was. I didn’t have too high of hopes, I thought “maybe I’ll get a few nicer pictures.” He surpassed all expectations. My images were so clear and sharp, such detail. Where have you been all my life Jack?! (Oh, that’s right, cooped up in your backroom! Shame!) I took Jack to more and more parks, he saw shows, rides, animals, and foods he’d never seen before. I was rewarded with pictures I’d never seen my T1i take before. It was inevitable… We fell in love. The 12th came and I couldn’t let him go! Just a few more days! And now it’s over, I want you to know, you may have his body, but he left his soul in my pictures! YOU CAN’T TAKE THAT AWAY! WHAT WE HAVE IS TRUE AND NO DISTANCE CAN CHANGE THAT!!! SHAME ON YOU FOR BREAKING UP TRUE LOVE! =( I’LL NEVER FORGET YOU JACK!!! <3, FeliciaDear Borrow Lenses,
