Inside Oliver Grimm’s Camera bag! (Bag No80)

Hello Hunters,

In the middle of my forties i’m some kind of late bloomer. I just shoot since fall 2014, began with an old Canon Rebel 450D but changed fast to my actual gear. Photography itself came to me in a very strong episode of a clinical depression. To be sincere i just began to shoot to have something to do on my strolls through the city of Berlin. Soon this kind of distraction became my second great passion in life—through the viewfinder i saw the whole world in a new and exciting way. I’m shooting whatever catches my attention therefore i love street photography: in their »natural« context people act differently than in the studio. Street photography for me is a real art form. And i am a humble disciple in that art.

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!

About “What’s in your camera bag Street Hunter!”

In June 2014  we started sharing the contents of the Camera Bag of one of you, one of our awesome Readers every week! All images and text in these posts are written by the Readers presenting their camera bags.


  1. Same as you Oliver, I discovered Photography in my mid (late) 40’s. it was in Summer 2014, just before a family trip to Europe, I wanted a good Camera instead of just a smartphone and I purchased the mirror less camera Samsung NX300. Since I enjoyed it so much, I started to collect and use legacy lenses and film Cameras. I admire Street Photography, You live in a great city for this kind of art, enjoy your creativity for many years to come…. !
