loandsons-giveaway5smgiveaway-loandsonsTis the season for giving and this week I am teaming up with Lo & Sons to give away one of their leather camera bags, the Claremont! I have been using this bag as my sole camera bag for the last few months and I have to say I LOVE it. It has gone on all of our weekend trips, carries both my canon 7d and a spare lens, and looks more like a beautiful handbag than a camera bag.

loandsons-giveawaysm3loandsons-giveawaysmloandsons-giveaway4smloandsons-giveaway6smIf you haven’t heard of Lo & Sons, I am happy to be the one to introduce you. It is a family owned travel and lifestyle bag brand, started by a mother and two sons, and is based out of NYC. Their bags are built to travel light, without compromising on style or function, which is a win, win, win for me. Above are photos from our trip to Ojai with the Claremont in tow.

Unstrap camera lens that I want to use. 5. Put lens on camera body. 6. Hang camera around my neck while I zip up backpack again. 7. Put backpack back on my back. 8. Snap photo. Approximate time needed to simply grab my camera from my bag before taking first photo: 6 minutes.

While visiting Chitwan, an area outside of Kathmandu, a baby elephant stole my camera bag! He picked it up off the ground, (luckily, it was empty), and swung it all over the place with his trunk.

I tend to carry my DSLR everywhere with me and this would be such a stylish way to do so!

  • Christina Moore

    On my springtime tropical vacation to the Caribbean!

    The color and detailing on the bag make it a classic leather tote! AND for my camera! I have been lugging either my Olympus OM system(old school film, and heavy!!) or Canon Mark system with me for over 20 years and have yet to come across such a beauty. I am an estate, garage, flea market sale junkie who has fashioned many a cute train bag, leather binocular bag, boring gear head camera bag into a caring case for my photography equipment. However, I shall look no more. This is the perfect bag to take with me on my journeys.

    My family and I spend time in the Rocky Mountains every summer and the bag could travel by plain, train and automobile. From a lovely Boulder lunch, to a museum day in Denver and then shooting in the majestic mountains of Colorado, I would be set!

  • Whitney

    This bag is stunning! I have no trips currently planned, but winning this would give me a good excuse to change that! In the meantime, I’d probably take it with me everywhere – the snow in Vermont is especially picturesque right now.

  • Esther

    I would love to take this bag to London and give it to my best friend who lives there with her husband. She is an incredible photographer who just makes do with what she has. Would love to give her something nice. Thanks for the fun giveaway.

    I would love to take the camera bag with my camera to Norway to capture all the natural beauty of the fjords and mountains.

  • Brooke

    I will be traveling to Colorado for the first time for an upcoming vacation, and even though I’m not a fan of the cold, I am a huge fan of capturing beautiful views and the people I am going to be with, so my camera will definitely be an integral part of my luggage

  • jill c.

    This is far and wide the most stylish and classy camera bag I have seen. Thank you so much for hosting this giveaway.

I founded a food and travel company to connect travelers with authentic home food and cultural experiences and travel frequently finding and vetting the best home cooks around the world.

  • theresa J

    I would take on travels in the NEw year

  • Hi! Love Lo & Sons so much…I have been eyeing their bags for a while, and this camera bag is everything—both lovely and practical. I would take it with me to Vermont after Christmas this year to when we go skiiing with family, and use my camera to capture the winter wonderland! xoxo

  • Sandra Nordlund

    I would take this bag for a trip to the pristine island of Ulvön (the wolf island) in the north of Sweden. We would stroll the main road of the fishing hamlet and occasionally I would open up my new friend to bring out my old, the camera. I would take time to see this old historic place and try to capture the beauty and lonliness of this place that not more than a hundred years ago used to be a home to a couple of hundred people. Me and the bag would eventually take to the forest of the island, breahte in the moist of mosses and dirt. We would dream of snow and cold sunny days when we could join the remaing islanders on the lake for some ice fishing. Eventually I would let my new friend rest in the comfortable home of my dear friends who happends to be islanders. I think both me and the bag would find enjoyment in this small adventure.

  • LOVE this! This bag would definitely come everywhere with me as well, but it’s first trip would probably be to my parents house on Christmas Eve 🙂

  • stephanie

    This bag would be handy to have on many upcoming trips!

  • Melanie F

    OH my goodness… this is definitely swoon/smitten worthy for sure!! I would literally take it everywhere, but would especially love to take it on a little mini vacay getaway my hubs & I are going on next month to the Oregon Coast!! P/S Thanks for the uber sweet chance)

  • Tara

    What a beautiful bag! This bag would come with me anywhere! I love having my camera on hand, especially with 2 little kids. I love to capture as many moments as possible but most times I leave my bulky camera bag behind & snap with my phone. This bag is both fashionable & functional I really would take it anywhere. Thanks!!

  • Liz H

    ahhh it would be such a treat to win this beautiful and chic bag! I would most likely take it with me on my next trip to Europe 🙂 Lo & Sons, takes over Scotland 🙂

  • Jessie Lynn

    Omg that is perfect for my 5D! I would pack up my 70-200 a couple of 32GB memory cards and bring it for my trip in April to Kobe Japan and shoot photos of the Cherry Blossoms! This is the perfect bag!!!!!

  • Karen

    I’ve become an empty nester and have decided to devote my free time to photography as a hobby. My daughter left me her lovely Nikon to get me motivated. This would be lovely for organization in addition to the fact that it’s a dope camera bag!!

  • Jennifer

    Where wouldn’t I want to take that beautiful bag!? 😉 I’m headed to Colorado soon and would like to tow my camera in that beauty! Thanks for the chance to win!

    This bag is gorgeous! I would love to take it to my family Christmas in January and then take it on our trip to Paris my husband and I have been saving up for next year! 🙂

  • kelli

    it’s 11:38 central so not sure if it’s ended, but i’ll try out anyway.

    this is such a great bag! it’s like my last bag that actually go too worn and is no longer with me. i’m obsessed with cross body bags and this fits into my routine with two kids. it’s casual and “try hard” all at once.

  • This beauty would make a killer travel bag for my 35mm film camera. I would first take it on a road trip from LA to Big Sur. Winter ocean views, cabin fires and cold breezy nights.

  • Jennifer

    I’d love to take it back to Italy and then head up to Switzerland!

  • Mariaelena

    Would love to take it to disneyland so I dknt have to take my big bulky bag.

  • […] Sarah Sherman Samuels photography is bright, and showcases the setting as much as the focus. Picture 1 / Picture 2 / Picture […]

  • […] The Claremont camera bag from Lo and Sons styled and shot by Sarah Sherman Samuel. […]
