Inside Franklin Joseph Ambo’s Camera bag! (Bag No93)

Hello Street Hunters !

My name is Franklin. But I prefer to be called Frank, fewer syllables. I’m 42, live in London UK, love sci-fi, anime and… Oh, yeah, photography. I studied photography briefly in college many many moons ago, as part of the college course, you had to do a 4-week work placement within your chosen field. Mine was art and design, so I managed to get a placement at a small advertising company. At the end of the 4 weeks the company “Robinson Mac” offered me a job as a studio Jr.  I left college, and I left photography. But never forgot about it, it would be some 20+ years later that I would pick up a camera again. Well, a mobile phone than a DSLR. I’ve only been at it for a few months now, but it has become a real passion of mine.

Inside my camera bag:

Franklin Joseph Ambo's camera bag


  • Kattee Messenger Bag (I wanted something big enough to fit my 11” MacBook Air, and also didn’t look like a camera bag)
  • Nikon D3300 Camera
  • 50mm f/1.8 AF-S Nikkor Lens
  • 18-55mm Nikon kit lens
  • 70-300mm Tamron f4/5.6 Di LD Macro 1:2 lens
  • A spare 16GB memory card
  • Remote control for D3300 (For whenever I take my tripod out which is not in the picture)
  • Power pack and cable for charging my mobile
  • D3300 transfer cable
  • A couple of cleaning cloths
  • Business cards (They may come in handy one day)
  • 3 Filter Step Up Ring for each of my lenses (You save a lot of money on filters by owning these)
  • 67mm Adjustable Fader ND Filter ND2 to ND400
  • 4 Squared Full Graduated Filters (Which gets rotated with the set of 24 depending on the day)
  • Earphone Replacement Sponge Covers (Because I broke my Nice earbuds and can’t afford to buy new ones at the moment, so I’m using Apple earphones which keeps slipping out of my ears)
  • A case for my memory card, Remote control, ND Fader and step up rings
  • 5 Food waste recycling liners + elastic band (For those rainy days)
  • Notepad and pen
  • Lens cleaning pen
  • D3300 Front body cover
  • Lens rear cover
  • My Kindle (Reading the awesome book by Vivian McInerny – Water Damage)


Thanks  for stopping by, now I have to repack my bag. . . . I’ll do it later.

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.
