“As a professional photographer I wanted to quit spending money on expensive repairs"
Joost Koskamp - founder of STEKK
STEKK is a fresh brand based in the Hague and founded by Joost Koskamp. STEKK is devoted to develop smart tools and gadgets to prevent common technical problems photographers face on a daily base.
With our first product the STEKK Lock Blocks we managed to find a solution for the USB connection errors and physical damage, caused by the cable connector during tethered shooting.
For every cameramodel a new LockBlock needs to be designed tested and hand-assembled an a small-scale. This is why STEKK can only offer small batches of each Lock Block model. Luckily quality standards and material quality are very high, therefore your Lock Block wil last a lifetime.
As founder Joost Koskamp explains: “As workflow specialist I’ve seen a lot of e-commerce photo-studios struggle with connection problems ending up with expensive repairs to their camera. You think you just need to repair your usb connector but eventually face a repair bill up to €800,- because the camera’s motherboard needs to be fully replaced.
As a professional photographer I wanted to quit spending money on expensive repairs. Also I want to move freely while shooting tethered, with the Lock Block you tackle these problems in one click”
