Inside Matthew Martin’s Camera bag! (Bag No88)

Hello Street Hunters,

I’m Matthew Martin, I’m a documentary and street photographer from the UK. I’m currently working on a personal documentary project called Endless Proof. The aim of the project is to simply document my life, the places I go and the people I see. I have a terrible memory, so taking photos is a workaround for that. I think that’s why my photos have a simple snapshot aesthetic. I make photo books that serve as a sort of diary and I share photos online and with friends. I also blog about my personal experience of photography.  I don’t have a camera bag. I just stick the GR in my pocket with an extra battery. I’ll take the charger if I’m on a long trip. Unfortunately, the camera constantly gets dust on the sensor. I am now an expert in disassembling the camera to clean it, hence the tweezers, screwdriver and wipes.

Inside my camera bag:

  • Ricoh GR with cheap wrist strap
  • Memory card
  • Spare batteries
  • Charger
  • Lens wipes
  • Screwdriver
  • Tweezers


My top tip: take more photos of the people you love.


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!
