Black Eye was founded by three friends who shared a passion for board sports and photography. Skateboard photographer Arto Ekman and professional snowboarders Fredu Sirviö and Eero Ettala wanted to make filming and photography with smartphones easier for everyone.
“Smartphone cameras were developing to a point where they could compete with traditional cameras. The first Black Eye lens ‘The Original’ was introduced in 2013. Since then our goal has been to develop the best smartphone accessories in the market for everyone. Welcome to the world of Black Eye.”
