About Tether Tools

Tether Tools Empowering Image Makers Through Connectivity, Collaboration, and Creativity


In the ever-evolving world of photography and content creation, Tether Tools was born from the need for seamless connectivity between digital cameras and the machines that process images. Frustrated with the limitations he faced during his own shoots, founder Josh Simons set out to create a line of photography solutions that would streamline workflows and elevate the creative process for photographers.

Driven by a passion for problem-solving, Tether Tools emerged as a pioneer in tethering technology. Tethering, the act of connecting a camera to a computer or mobile device, opened new avenues for photographers and filmmakers across the globe. With Tether Tools’ high-speed cables, adapters, workstations, software, power solutions, and accessories, creators can now experience real-time image transfer, remote camera control, and live preview capabilities like never before.

At the heart of Tether Tools lies a set of core values that guide every product and service we offer. Connect, Collaborate, and Create are the three pillars that form the very essence of the brand.

Connect: Tether Tools believes in the power of connections. We understand that the right tools should just work and technology can bridge the gap between vision and execution. Tether Tools connects seamlessly and reliably in the background to technology so the photographer can focus on connecting with their subject. Tether Tools helps creators to bring their ideas to life.

Collaborate: Collaboration fuels innovation, and Tether Tools embraces this philosophy wholeheartedly. We foster a community of like-minded individuals who share their passion for pushing boundaries. Through educational resources, photography workshops, and industry partnerships, Tether Tools encourages creators to exchange ideas, learn from one another, and grow together.

Create: Tether Tools believes that when technology seamlessly integrates into the creative process, true magic happens. Our end-to-end solutions cater to the diverse needs of creators of all kinds, enabling them to unleash their full potential. From tethering cables and mounting solutions to software integration and power, Tether Tools has every aspect covered, allowing creators to focus on what they do best—creating remarkable content.

By empowering creators to connect, collaborate, and create, Tether Tools has become an indispensable companion on the journey of turning imagination into reality.
