New Products - February

Few weeks in and we already know that 2020 will be an exciting year. We have started with a bang and released our own podcast, Peeling Bananas. We’re confirmed another Wooden Banana party at Way Up North in Copenhagen, but the most important thing is that we have so many new products and changes in the pipeline, some of them outside of what we have been doing so far. We’re starting with 2 new boxes – USB case, and a drawer box. We’re proud of both of them, but love the drawer box in particular, as this is a new concept we haven’t tried before. Check them out and let us know if you have any questions.

PEELING BANANAS with Hannah Millard and Jacob Loafman

Make content for photographers, not just the popular products! It is one of Wooden Banana New Year’s resolutions. Easier said than done, but we’ve done the first step, and yes, “it’s bananas”. What is it that we, photographers, do most of the time? It isn’t photographing for sure. We spend endless hours staring at computer screens, driving, hanging around airports or ferry terminals. In short, we spend a lot of time alone. That’s where your podcast app comes in handy, and there’s an abundance of good podcasts out there, but hey, we decided to make our own. At the point of this post is published we have three episodes ready, so to keep things short, here’s a two-word description of what the podcast is about: pure entertainment. According to our Wooden Banana institute of statistics, photographers are at high risk of dying of boredom while in a process of editing photos. We thought it would be a good idea to shift that and put you at risk of dying of laughter when you listen to our podcast. And that’s where our hosts come into the light. Hannah Millard, Jacob Loafman. Both amazing artists of course, but since you’re not here to look at their work, let’s just say their broadcasting skills are simply “bananas”.

way up north wooden banana party

Way Up North Party in Stockholm.

Our minds are still in a whirlwind, and there's one reason for it. Way Up North in Stockholm. We're not even going to try and put in words all the wisdom, stories, laughs and knowledge that was shared by a group of incredible speakers from all over the world. That would probably require writing a book and not a short blog post.

There was one phrase that started to circulate around the event early on the first day, and soon became like a buzzword, a one word description of the whole event. Community. It felt like we all knew it before, but it never hit home as much as in Stockholm couple of days ago ( Whitney Chamberlin's closing presentation pretty much engraved it on everyone's mind ). There's so much more to this event than keynotes and sponsor stands. It's an amazing, likeminded group of people, who over time changed from being attendees to being friends.

AND ON THE 9TH OF OCTOBER ALL THOSE FRIENDS WORE YELLOW TO WOODEN BANANA / WAY UP NORTH CLOSING PARTY. 

Watch the video below to be blown away, and make sure you book the ticket to next Way Up North here. We'll be there again.

Sidenote.

It's the 2nd time Magic's been blowing us all away with his party photography skills, and in the spirit of community he decided to show the world how he does it. Details coming soon on our Instagram, so make sure you follow us here.
