Inside Marius Bester’s Camera bag! (Bag No55)

Hi Street Hunters,

My name is Marius Bester and i am a street photographer based in Pretoria South Africa. I have a passion for documenting the streets of my country and capturing moments that will stand the test of time in my country’s culture and view of itself.  I live to capture emotion through my portraiture and show the beauty behind the sadness and poverty which plagues my country’s streets.  My life is a constant hunger in the hunt for whatever i can find that will shock or inspire, and as Robert Capa said. The pictures are there, and you just take them!

My Bag Contains:

Marius Bester's Camera Bag


  • Nikon D90
  • Nikon 18-55mm F3.5
  • Nikon 50mm fixed F1.8

  • 2 Batteries
  • Cigarettes
  • Lighter
  • My 1979 Kawasaki Kz400’s keys
  • A few Mandela’s for food and drinks
  • Oldschool camera grip


I am an African hunter and the streets are my prey.


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 Readers via the 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! Stay Sharp & Keep Shooting!
