Pimp Your Camera, Yo!



New product: “Pimp your cam . com” – the new and unique way to customise
camera bodies and lenses


July, 2012 – True to the principle “be unique”, the PimpYourCam.com team are now offering the opportunity to personalise the usually dull black (or at least single-coloured) body of your camera (and your lenses).

The team is made up of the well-known Dusseldorf advertising photographer and photography book author Jens Brüggemann and the Berlin airbrush artist Torsten Rachu.

Life is colourful – so why only take photos with a boring black camera? Jens Brüggemann asked himself and the idea to transform colourless cameras into distinctive works of art was born.

Torsten Rachu, who is responsible for the conception and creative implementation of the designs, has decades of experience in airbrush design. His customers include the global players BlackBerry, Electronic Arts, Disney, Siemens, Sega, Sky, Sony, Nokia, Nintendo, Eidos, Micky Maus Magazin, Microsoft, Bombardier Transportation, Coca- Cola, Haribo, Warner Music, O2, Otis, etc. He has even designed a mobile phone for the Queen!

Every camera is unique increasing its value considerably. The design also provides a high recognition value and thus offers good protection against theft. For those customers, who want a really personal touch, an individual design can be agreed with the PimpYourCam.com team in advance for a small extra charge which is calculated according to the actual additional work required.

The styling process has undergone extensive testing and professional photographers have tested the use of the airbrushed cameras. Proven treatment methods to prepare the camera and the use of special paints and coatings guarantee the long term durability of the design.

Photography is twice as much fun with PimpYourCam.com!

The team works with selected specialist retailers where the product will be available worldwide from the end of July 2012. The customer can then order their selected design directly in the camera shop when they buy a new camera. It is also possible to add a design to existing photographic equipment.

The customer can choose the design they would like from the selection provided on the PimpYourCam.com internet site. The Pimp-configurator allows a lot of different styles and colors. It is also possible to add an individual design (for example a company logo). The PimpYourCam.com team will fulfill all possible camera design requests!
