Inside Jamelle Bouie’s Camera bag! (Bag No91)

Greetings Street Hunters,

I am a political writer and analyst living in Washington D.C. I love writing, but in the last few years I’ve realized my passion is photography, and in the last year, I’ve embraced film after growing up with digital cameras. D.C is a fairly busy city, and a great place to do street photography (as well as architectural photos, if that’s your thing). And I try to take time from work every day to do just that.   My daily camera is a Konica Hexar AF, usually loaded with black and white film but not always. It offers a lot of the conveniences of digital in a compact film body with a fantastic lens. My bag is a leather ONA Brixton bag, where I also keep my laptop and assorted other items.

What’s in the Bag:

Jamelle Bouie's Camera Bag


  • Konica Hexar AF with an orange filter if I’m shooting black and white.
  • Ricoh GR10, which usually just stays in my pocket.
  • On weekends, I have a medium format rig. Usually that’s a Fuji GA645, recently a Yashica Mat.
  • Lumu light meter
  • Kindle
  • Battery pack for my iPhone
  • Bluetooth headphones


Thanks for reading!


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!

    I’m shocked there isn’t a Walkman with a Pixies tape in there, too.
