PEAK DESIGN GRANT RECEPIENTS 2020

Watch Peak Design blow minds, and change lives with their generous outreach and innate desire to do good things as a company — and as human beings.

What is the Peak Design grant for black photographers and filmmakers?

Recently, Peak Design asked L Renee Blount to share her experiences being a Black photographer and climber. She did (have a read) and in doing so challenged brands in the outdoor and photography industry to grant more gear to aspiring Black photographers. In L’s words, “if you want to see more people of color in outdoor photography, lower the barrier.” Challenge accepted.

Peak Design called up their friends up at Sony and BorrowLenses and put together 3 full professional kits—full-frame camera/lens, bags, tripod, straps/clips, and credit for future gear rental. Upon launching these grants, other brands took note. With the help of funds from Arc’teryx and OneWheel, they’ve been able to create 3 additional grants for a total of 6 complete gear packages. The goal of these grants is to help 6 aspiring Black photographers or videographers (of any experience level) level-up their gear.
