We first met LensProToGo (LPTG) at Partner Con here in San Diego at the end of 2011. And, then, we spent another 4 days with a few of their team mates at the Mystic Seminars in Connecticut in January of this year. However, it wasn’t until this past month at WPPI that we got to spend some time with their entire team. We had the opportunity to really understand the value their company brings the pro wedding photographer. And, it also became crystal clear that both of our companies are of the same mind when it comes to providing our customers with a trusted and valuable experience. Each member of the LPTG team has a fire in their eyes for what they do. It was obvious that there is a fire that exists in that company, and each of them love the service they provide. Partnering with LensProToGo (LPTG) made all the sense in the world.
So… whats the back story on LPTG? In August of 2006, Paul Friedman decided to launch LensProToGo, carrying just Canon lenses, out of a spare room in his house. In November he added Nikon lenses and then, in April of 2007, he started carrying camera bodies and super telephotos. From here Paul moved the business into his finished basement and hired his first employee. The rest, as they say, is history!
LPTG provides professional rental gear for photographers and videographers including Canon and Nikon DSLR camera bodies, almost every lens under the sun, and large variety of video gear, lighting and audio systems, stabilization and many accessories. Even more important is what each LPTG employee brings to the table. Each employee owns photo/video businesses outside of LensProToGo, and they all use the gear…. making them experts on the equipment they rent. They aren’t just people who answer phones and sit behind desks taking orders. Bring on the questions!
So why did we choose LensProToGo to partner with? Well, there are several distinct reasons:
- we share the same vision and goal: to serve the professional photographer with excellence, and with a smile
- everyone at LPTG is a pro shooter. They don’t just rent the gear…. they know it inside and out.
- wide selection of gear, all professionally cleaned and maintained in between every rental.
- all shipments are done in Pelican cases, and round trip shipping is paid for .
- fun, down to earth people (probably our favorite part
