Tiffen Covers the Press Photographers Who Cover the London 2012 Games
When LOCOG was looking for a supplier of photographers' vests, they naturally turned to The Tiffen Company and chose the Domke PhoTOGS Vest, the vest of choice for so many press photographers throughout the world. Put to the test during the world’s most-watched sporting event, the Domke PhoTOGS Vest earned a gold medal of its own, proving through its versatility and durability that it was more than capable of helping photographers catch every action-packed moment of the 2012 London Olympic Games.
“The London 2012 Olympic Games were filled with so many memorable moments, from winning Olympic Gold to setting new world records, and capturing these moments is paramount for a photojournalist,” said Steve Tiffen, president and CEO, The Tiffen Company. “We’re thrilled that the Domke PhoTOGS vest was selected as the photographers’ vest supplied by LOCOG for the Games. The flexibility of the vest lends itself to quick, fluid movements, and an array of pockets means camera accessories are readily accessible, making the task of capturing moments that happen in the blink-of-an-eye easier than ever.”
The number one choice of the White House News Photographers Association, Domke has carved its path as the go-to source of photo gear and accessories for photojournalists worldwide, officially securing its gold-medal status in the realm of sporting photography. The Domke PhoTOGS Vest is made of 100% machine-washable cotton, with cotton mesh panels at yoke and back to provide cooling ventilation. The vest is full-cut for comfort and practicality, and has 18 pockets in all, consisting of cargo pockets, pockets with weather-tight zipper closures, huge back pockets and pen/pencil pockets. The removable press pass holder ensures photojournalists will never be caught without proper and necessary identification.
