Inside Alex Coghe’s Camera bag! (Bag No31)
Hi street hunters!
I’m Alex Coghe, Italian established photographer currently based in Mexico City. My street is my office most of the time so I would share with you what’s in my bag when I go out to make street photography. When I go in barrios (popular neighborhoods) things change completely: in fact I only go with the Ricoh GRD IV in my pocket. I share two photos because there is a small change depending on how many hours I’ll be on the street and what do I do (sometimes I am busy with my workshops). When I go to Downtown my camera bag contains:
- MacBookPro, now pretty cool with the Leica decal or my iPad mini;
- Leica X2, with optical viewfinder;
- Lens Cap;
- Spare battery for my Leica;
- Nikon L35 AF;
- Daido Moriyama book;
- Leica notebook;
- Electronic Viewfinder;
- Business Cards;
Not in the pictures:
- Memory cards;
- Kodak films;
- Cleaning cloth;
Thanks Street Hunters to let me share with your readers what is in my bag and remember, guys, “If your street photographs aren’t good enough, you’re not living the street enough.”
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!
