Inside Rémy Chanteloup’s Camera bag! (Bag No14)
My name is Rémy Chanteloup, I’m a 18 year-old street photographer from France ( this is a excuse for my english ! ). I have started street photography in February 2014, and since July 2014, I do only street portraits. My bag is always changing. At the beginning, I had a little Canon compact camera. After that, I wanted to shoot film like my favorite street photographers ( Charlie Kirk, Elliot Erwitt, Bruce Gilden … ), and I bought a Minolta Dynax with two lenses ( 28-80mm and 70-210mm ). I also bought a Canonet QL28 and some films ( Ektar 100, Kodak Tri-X 400 ). After four rolls of film, I realized this is not for me ( I’m too impulsive, and had a very low keeper rate ). So, in July, I entered in the world of the DSLRs with a Nikon D3200. I think I have found the perfect ( and very light ! ) kit for me and I’m very happy with it. Today, you can find in my bag.

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!
