Inside Thomas Benezeth’s Camera bag! (Bag No51)

Bonjour Street Hunters !

My name is Thomas Benezeth and I’m a french street photographer based in Paris. I started photography at the end of year 2012 when I bought my first DSLR. I learned alone.

I discovered street photography in 2012 thanks to Thomas Leuthard‘s work and I fell in love with this kind of picture. I like to play with city’s geometry, so I like to shoot architectural shot with human presence. I love playing with natural framing, reflection, silhouette, and contrasted black and white. Sometimes, I shoot in color, but most of my pic are in black and white.

Since 2013, I use a Fuji X100S and I love it, it is the perfect camera for me ! I carry it with me everyday, everywhere. So I can shot at anytime: I’m always ready !!

I wrote a free ebook about street photography, in french, where I speak about my experience, my tips and advices. Come to read it, it’s free !!

My camera bag contains:

Thomas Benezeth Camera Bag


  • X100S
  • Extra battery
  • iPhone 4S and one extra battery
  • Cigarette and lighter
  • Card holder with subway ticket


It is legal to shoot people in France’s street, so don’t trust what french people say to you when you photograph them and keep shooting !
