I’m sure you’re curious about who these mysterious (mostly-)humans are, so without further ado – an introduction to Team Triggertrap…
Haje Jan Kamps – CEO & Photo Geek
… can be reached on email@example.com
Haje is the Triggertrap inventor of sorts. His previous tinkering with a laser trigger for his camera is what gave Haje the idea for the Triggertrap. When he’s not coming up with crazy photography gadgets, Haje works as a writer and photographer.
He has written a number of books on photography, and also has an extensive list of credits as a technical editor, project manager, and photographer. In addition, Haje spends a lot of time geeking out about photography on the internet, and blogs his little heart out at Photocritic.org. He also runs the Photocritic Photography School.
Mat Rodger – Head of Operations
…can be reached on firstname.lastname@example.org
Mat is the Head of Operations at Triggertrap and is based in London. He joined the team from the world of publishing, having spent the previous few years working with some of the more weird and wonderful books ever published (ask him about Afterlives of the Rich and Famous one day).
He is also a sometime stand-up comic who has attempted to make people laugh with varying success all over London since 2012. At all other times he can be found walking the mean streets of London, listening to esoteric football podcasts, evangelising for digital publishing formats in seedy pubs and staring bemusedly at the nerdier corners of the internet. For hours.
Richard Currie – Sales and Marketing Director
…can be reached on email@example.com
Richard is the head of sales and marketing, based in London and the most well travelled of team triggertrap. He has a history of developing businesses in the tech space, and has successfully built commercial networks all over the world.
Richard has a passion for food and entertaining, and will talk at length about pretty much anything you will let him. You never know what language Richard will start speaking, which country he will disappear to or what dodgy joke he will tell next
Drink of Choice: Monkey 47 Gin & Fever Tree Tonic over Ice
Favourite Food: All of it, if its cooked right…

Ross Gibson – Head of iOS Development
…can be reached on firstname.lastname@example.org
Ross is an app developer with a passion for all things Apple. Working from the Bristol office he contributes to the Triggertrap mobile apps and day-to-day Triggertrap life. He has a background in physics and loves to tinker, learn and improve things.
He is also an avid motocross rider and general extreme sport fan-boy, keen to give most things a go. When he’s not on his bike Ross develops his own apps and gets carried away on projects in his garage.
Helena Vieira – Head of Happiness
…can be reached on email@example.com
Helena is our number one person reaching out to all our delightful Triggertrap users and making sure they get more information, help and inspiration than they can shake a stick at. She makes sure that our manuals and blog are updated, our Facebook and Twitter are kept full of inspirations and Triggertrap users’ photos, and that all our customer support emails get answered.
On the occasions we let her loose on the world, she usually spends her time helping others run their blogs and websites, wandering like a lost child round museums and galleries, playing Pokemon and going to enough gigs to make anyone’s ears fall off.
Thomas Langley – Head of Photography
…can be reached on firstname.lastname@example.org
Thomas probably learnt how to hold a camera before he learnt how to spell his name. He is our in-house photography expert and tests (a.k.a. tries to break) our new products and updates before they are unleashed on you all. Along with trying to break things, he spends a bit too much time in the studio and out and about actually breaking things, photographing our products and working on cool marketing ideas!
When he’s not thinking of cool new photo shoot ideas for Triggertrap, he spends his time as a freelance photographer or eating his way around various street food stands in London.
Rich Harley – Head of Product
…can be reached on email@example.com
Rich is a photographer from Bristol, and is in charge of making sure Triggertrap products are as awesome as they can be. Talking to customers to find out what they want, and taking some of our crazy ideas and working out how to turn them in to reality is all part and parcel of Rich’s day.
Outside of Triggertrap, Rich is an aviation and commercial photographer (http://richharley.com), and when he’s not in the photography world, he likes to get himself to the most hipster coffee places he can find, play a few sports (table tennis is a sport, right?) and generally eat as much as he can.
Valentin Kalchev – iOS Developer
…can be reached on firstname.lastname@example.org
Valentin is an app developer with previous experience in quality assurance and games development. He loves creating apps for the iOS platform but has also worked on Windows Phone and Android apps. Given his background as a QA Engineer, he is always aiming for quality and explores even the tiniest flaw that his code might have.
When not developing apps he enjoys swimming, finding new places to eat, playing video games, reading about new technology and adding bits and pieces to his website (www.vkalchev.co.uk).
Helin Resuli – Customer Support Superhero
…can be reached on email@example.com
Helin is our new face of Customer Support, working as part of Team Happiness. She will be working to keep Triggertrap customers happy by answering any queries about the fantastic products that we have to offer!
Outside of Triggertrap Helin likes to dabble in photography and wander around exhibitions in London. When not doing all things photography related, she enjoys going to gigs, swimming, and cooking. She has a slight obsession with making smoothies!
