McMurray and Blonde was started with The Washington Street camera strap. I literally scoured the world for a simple, thin leather camera strap that was made with high quality materials AND was affordable. I couldn’t find one, so I made my own.
I made this strap easy to put on and take off of the split key rings on your camera. Solid brass chicago screws allow for the easy removal and installation of the strap. Pair multiple cameras with one easy-to-switch strap or use multiple McMurray and Blonde straps without having to bend your finger nails off trying to switch them. I carry a heavy guitar pick in my camera bag for switching on the road.

A note on chicago screws - Once the chicago screws are together properly, they don't come apart on their own easily. Please remember to make sure they are fully screwed together and are snug on occasion (or use Loctite so they will not come apart without significant effort). If you are prone to losing things, please purchase a 4-pack of the chicago screws with your strap. If you think you may lose more than five of them, please contact us before purchase.
