Inside Jake Lambroza’s Camera bag! (Bag No84)
Greetings Global Street Hunters,
It’s a Jungle out there – so I stay light, lean and prepared; especially in the streets and Subways of NYC.
I stalk the streets; a camera, always with me, like a pacemaker. Day and night, fair or foul, out to dinner with my wife, going to the theater or the office, the airport or the grocery store. I do this with the hopes of being privileged enough to memorialize a second in time never seen before; never to be seen again.
Street photography is my lifelong passion, it’s my love; and other than my wife, my children and grandchild, it defines the soul my very being.
My work is not posted, it is not publicly shared. My work is private and very dear to me. My work is open to only those who seek it, ask for it and can appreciate it, not the masses.
I bid you good hunting..
Jake (NYC – March 2016)
The contents of my bag:
- Domke X-5 Wax Canvas bag (label removed)

- Cannon G15 (the take everywhere camera when the Fuji stays home)
- Hand strap for Fuji (I hold the camera in my hand and down at all times)

Go take pictures… but make sure they have soul !
I repeat the above: “My work is not posted, it is not publicly shared. My work is private and very dear to me. My work is open to only those who seek it, ask for it and can appreciate it, not the masses.”
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!
