Chrome Industries has always been known for their creative styling of backpacks and messenger bags and are adding some of their creative prowess to the camera bag game with their BLCKCHRM Niko LTD Camera Bag Collection. Each bag comes in a solid black and has various compartments to fit your camera shooting needs. You can read more about the collection below and also see about entering the contest they are offering as well.
BLCKCHRM™ Niko LTD Camera Bag Collection:
We were approached by two of the top photographers in the game, trashhand and Van Styles, to stoke the street photography community. Urban landscape photography and streetwear photoshoots keep trashhand on the move with his Niko Pack, while Van packs a small kit to capture his studio work and #valleylife in the Niko Sling. We teamed up to make our street-tested LTD Niko Camera Bag Series with our highest end BLCKCHRM fabric and details. Built with Hypalon, full grain-leather, soft touch buckles, and a printed digi-camo liner, each bag is still a workhorse, but with an even stealthier look and feel. Each bag has a liner that reps the color of Van, trashhand, and Chrome’s favorite home sports teams: Chicago Bulls red on the Niko Pack, Los Angeles Dodgers blue on the Niko Sling, and San Francisco Giants orange on the Niko Messenger.

Van Styles and trashhand are going to be taking over Streets of Chrome in search of the next great street photographers on Instagram. This is a call-out for submissions for a consistent body of work, rather than one great photo. From November 21, 2014 to December 21, 2014 they will be collecting different photography styles in portrait, landscape and other. To submit, users will need to tag their best photos #streetsofchrome on their Instagram during that timeframe for a chance to be recognized. Those hand chosen by either Van Styles or trashhand, will receive a full kit of the NEW BLCKCHRM Niko LTD Camera Bag Collection, and have their work featured in Chrome’s online and in-store displays.
