THE HISTORY OF LENSBABY

For over 16 years Lensbaby has hand built one-of-a-kind special effects lenses.

 

Based in Portland, OR, Lensbaby has drawn a cult following of those who embrace weirdness and imperfection. Lensbaby is the enemy of perfection, an ally of the unusual, and an advocate for the unique. Our motto is “Shoot Extraordinary” and we hope to help you accomplish that through the uncommon qualities of our photo and video lenses.
