Inside Helmut Hess’ Camera bag! (Bag No96)

Hello Street Hunters,

My name is Helmut Hess and I’m from Erfurt, located in Thuringia, the green heart of Germany. Photography is my hobby and many of my photos have been selected by international agencies. Most photo opportunities I find when walking in cities and landscapes. I like to watch people and try to identify interesting situations in time and capture the photo. When I walk in my hometown, I have usually just the small Ricoh GR in hand, watching the people around me. In photo tours and vacations I take the Kelly Moore bag and pack two or three cameras for various uses.

In my Kelly Moore bag is usually the following:

Helmut Hess's Camera Bag


  • Ricoh GR-V for street photography
  • Lens Hood and optical viewfinder for the GR-V
  • Sony RX10
  • Sony A7R with Voigtländer Ultron 1.7 / 35mm
  • Replacement Batteries
  • Cleaning cloth and Lenspen
  • Joby Gorillapad
  • Golla Camera Strap
  • Business Cards
  • Something to drink and a
  • LG G4 smartphone


My motto: It’s all a question of light. Keep calm and keep your eyes open! Thanks for your interest!

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!
