Inside Sean Allen’s Camera bag! (Bag No89)
Hi Street Hunter Amigos
My name is Sean Allen and I’m an Irish based photographer mainly shooting Street. I was a professional photographer for 15yrs up until 2002 shooting PR, Press, Studio, and Advertising. My true passion was Street and Social Documentary photography(unpaid) I went through major depression In 2002 and walked away from my old life including photography.
Although I shifted my depression 6yrs ago, I made a decision only last year to rekindle that love affair with photography, so with no gear, no money to buy gear but with a burning desire I started to take small steps finding my eye again. Although I currently do not have the gear that I want, I am very grateful that I do have the gear that will get me to the next stage, and I have created my YouTube channel Rambles with my Camera to document via weekly videos that return.
Sending my Love from Ireland!
Inside my camera bag:
- Backpack: Lowepro DSLR Video 350 AW Fastpack

- Remote control for D3300

- 3 sets of daily contact lens just in case 😊
- 20.00 Euro stashed in the bag just in case I lose or someone liberates my wallet
- Bottled water, I use the same bottle just refill it at home, we have our own well no Fluoride or nasties
- Depending on the weather I would also have a jacket in the top compartment of the bag
- Some food also in top compartment of the bag (as a vegan its sometime very difficult to get food on the go)
As Photographers we capture the present so those in the future can look back at the past, so make it count.
Although I have a website I would link a link to my YouTube channel https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCatWrdo2xuFztAsK-POQ-Fg
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!
