Style meets Functionality


During his days as a professional photographer Ulrich Grill first started thinking about creating a photo apparel company. He couldn’t find products which were good enough for his needs. So, he decided to create his own. The outcome: Stylish and functional accessories and clothing, designed by photographers, for photographers.

COOPH products like the legendary Rope Strap and the Photo Glove, as well as the Lens Cleaning Scarf or the Field Jacket became a must have, not just for professional photographers, but anyone passionate about photography.

COOPH supports Art Meets Education with the COOPH x Lorenz Holder Cap

Together with Lorenz Holder, one of the top action sports photographers and multiple Red Bull Illume winner, COOPH designed a limited-edition cap, made to help Art Meets Education, a photography and art program striving for a better world.  

Art Meets Education is an awesome organization that gives children from financially disadvantaged families in the Philippines a chance to pay for school with their own photography. They provide the kids with the gear, the lessons, and the mentorship they need; thereafter, the kids actually get to exhibit their extraordinary photographs and sell the works of art to help fund their education. It’s a cause that is special because the children open the doors to a new life themselves. This gives the children a sense of self-confidence and pride in what they achieve, both in and out of school. Each hat we sold will give a child 4 months of school because every cent goes towards Art Meets Education.

Growing the cooph brand channel


We set out with a mission to build a platform for people passionate about photography, sharing awesome DIY photography tutorials full of tips, tricks and hacks. It is an epic milestone reaching over one million subscribers on YouTube and being able to share COOPH’s vision with so many. Although, the greatest reward, by far, is knowing that there are so many enthusiastic photographers out there finding inspiration on all of our channels.

We started COOPH because… well, because we wanted to. To explore our own ideas about photography, story, and content. It’s been around for almost five years, and we can say – it’s a massive success. 50 million YouTube views, countless hours of engagement, and unique clothing brand that’s partnered with some of the biggest names in photography.

What can we say? It clicked.
