Inside Flip Per’s Camera bag! (Bag No73)
Hello Street Hunters,
I Started taking pictures in the early 1970’s. My sister had an old Pentax that she never used, so I commandeered it and started to photograph everything. It was not until I saw the work of W. Eugene Smith that it hit me, the so called “bug”.
“A Walk To The Paradise Garden” or the “Pittsburgh Photographs” but especially “A Madwoman in a Haitian Clinic” blew me away. I knew at that point I wanted to take pictures of people and in black & white.
I’ve been taking photographs since 1973 and have, over the past couple of years, been digitizing my work. It has been a life passion that I cannot put away. I photograph where ever I am and whatever I see and this is my slice of life.
I have expanded my passion to include all types of photography through the years but my heart belongs on the street.
What’s in my pocket:
- camera: Nikon coolpix 4.5_99.0mm
- phone: Alcatel one touch 5.0 mp
Thanks for this opportunity to show you my stuff. What’s your excuse now? That’s what I thought.

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!
