Between product and lifestyle photo shoots, we have plenty of chances to experiment with how much gear can fit in each ONA and how to style each bag. But we’re always inspired and impressed by how real-life ONA owners manage to make the bags work for them (keep sharing your photos with us on social media!), so we decided to highlight how some of our favorite photographers make their bag work for them.
Photographer and student Emari (rhymes with “memory”) Traffie loves photos, especially photos of people. “I love making them, but I also love looking at them. A compelling portrait speaks to me in ways that even my favorite song can’t. A truly great portrait tells a story that is deep, intimate and emotional. This is what I want to achieve in my pursuit of portrait photography.” Emari, who has served as a United States Marine, is a busy lady: she’s just two months away from attaining her degree in journalism and recently moved to Los Angeles from Boston via road trip.
For fun, Emari makes wedding films, hikes whatever hill or mountain she can find, and goes to hip hop shows in downtown LA. In her dream life, she would make music videos for all her favorite bands and take photos of rad people for Rolling Stone, shooting solely on medium format film.
