Santa Rosa, Calif. (PRWEB)July 31, 2017

Think Tank Photo’s largest rolling photography equipment case, the Production Manager 50, has been honored by Professional Photographer magazine as a 2017 Hot Ones. The Production Manager 50 is designed to hold an immense amount of gear, including lighting equipment and large light modifiers. It features stabilizing, wide-set, shock-absorbing wheels that roll smoothly and hold up under the toughest conditions, the ability to lock the main compartment and secure the bag with the included lock and cable, and a fully customizable interior with dividers to protect small and large lighting equipment including c-stands and large modifiers.

This year marks the 18th edition of Professional Photographer magazine’s Hot Ones. The official magazine of Professional Photographers of America, Professional Photographer helps readers advance their businesses and careers through editorial content that addresses the artistic, technological, and business aspects of their work. For more than 100 years, pros have relied on Professional Photographer to deliver the education and inspiration they need to be successful: practical lessons and of-the-moment images that define an industry.

“We are deeply honored that Professional Photographer magazine selected the Production Manager 50 for this year’s Hot Ones award,” said Think Tank Photo’s president and lead designer Doug Murdoch. “Just as Professional Photographer exists to serve the needs of working professional photographers, so too does Think Tank. We were co-founded by and for professional photographers who need to know that their photo gear is made to withstand their most rugged usage while allowing quick access.”
