Inside Wilson Ho’s Camera bag! (Bag No11)
My name is Wilson or you may call me W, and I am from Toronto, Canada. I am an IT specialist and also a freelance photographer mainly for non-profits, corporate events. I always prefer to work alone when I am doing street photography because I need to concentrate and observe the surrounding area. Whenever I am on the street, I always ask myself questions like where to go for better lighting, why did I hesitate and missed that shot, how could I capture a better picture, etc. I love seeing others’ pictures and analyze them to find out what techniques are involved and learn from there. Some of the photographers that I like are HCB, Vivian Maier, Boogie…
The contents of my bag:
- Canon 6D
- Canon 40/2.8
- Crumpler Camera Bag
- Extra Battery/Memory Card
- Cloth to clean my glasses
- Lens Pen – Cleaning
- CPL / ND8 filter
- Business Cards
Thank for letting me share my camera bag and the way I work my street photography!

Rules of participation
Each person that submits the contents of his bag will also be allowed 150 words to describe her / him self to the rest of the StreetHunters.net Readers via the www.streethunters.net website pages! We will even allow one link, back to your website! It will be loads of fun! Why? Well, because we will start to get to know each other through these small 150 word descriptions and of course through the contents of each one’s bags! Now, when we say Camera Bag, it doesn’t have to literally be a bag. It could be a pouch, a backpack, pockets of a jacket, whatever. All we need is the list of all the contents and a photo of those contents on a wooden or carpeted (preferably) floor from above. What must be included in the email you send us? Here is the list of things you need to provide us with in order to have a valid entry:
- 150 word description of yourself and your Street Photography quirks, habits, tips, whatever. 150 words MAX.
- Photo of the contents of your bag and your bag next to those contents on a floor, shot from 90 degrees above. High quality, big size.
- List of items included in your camera bag.
- Link to your website OR blog OR facebook page OR GooglePlus page OR whatever.
- A closing remark 20 words MAX. You can say for example something like Thank for letting me share the contents of my bag, now stop looking into my privates and go take some photos!
We thank you in advance for your participation and we are really looking forward to finding out what YOU are hiding in your camera bags! Send everything in at firstname.lastname@example.org! Stay Sharp & Keep Shooting!
Wilson, you have very nice work on your site. I enjoyed looking at your entire portfolio.
Were all the pictures shot with that one 40mm lens?
Hello! Thanks for your kind words, Mavritivs! Most of my street work/street portrait on my site were taken by the 40mm pancake lens. The rest of them like my event work images were taken by other lens.
Cool. Thanks for the reply.
Good stuff, Wilson! Vivian Maier is also one of my favs;)
