Our Story.

For Christian and Chris, the inspiration to travel across Latin America meant quitting their jobs and embarking on a two year road trip that would become a journey of self discovery and environmental awareness. From this, Gobe was born.

Stirred by both the beauty and devastation of what they saw, the drive behind Gobe was one that understood the deep and interconnected relationship between the photographer and their subject - a recognition of the importance not just to appreciate and capture the splendour of nature, but to protect her.

Teaming up with some of the most capable and passionate wilderness photographers, the role of Gobe ambassadors was two-fold. Not only did the partnership put Gobe products to the test - proving them to be durable and able to withstand the rigours and demands of all aspects of photography - it created, through imagery, a powerful link to the vast and intricate beauty of the world we live in.

Proving that business could be a driving force for positive environmental practice, Gobe was founded on the principles of environmental sustainability while continually striving to have a direct and positive impact on the environmental crisis we undoubtedly face. Using minimal recyclable packaging and with funds from every product sold forwarded to the planting of 5 trees in areas of severe deforestation, the core of Gobe’s story is one of passion and concern, artistry and inspiration, creativity and custodianship.

Today Gobe is a growing company operating in North America, Europe, Australia and Japan.
