3 Legged Thing win Best Tripod
The Lucie Technical awards honour companies and individuals who have innovated, inspired and advanced the photography industry that year. The awards were held in New York on the 25th of October.
Danny Lenihan was there to collect the award;
It’s been an incredible ride, these last couple of years. We’ve worked so hard as a company to be better in every way, innovating, and pushing the boundaries of function and design. To be recognised for this hard work is a tremendous honour, and a wonderful moment for me, both personally and professionally.
I designed Leo to really challenge the fabric of conventional thinking in tripod design, creating a product that could be more versatile than any other tripod in its class. That we achieved this, and won this prestigious award, as a small, British, camera support solution headquartered in a Chicken Shed on a farm in Bedfordshire, against the might of the biggest and most respected tripod companies in the world, is just incredible. It’s very humbling.
