Inside João Teixeira’s Camera bag! (Bag No143)
Hello Street Hunters,
My name is João Teixeira, I’m from Lisbon, Portugal and i am a graphic designer.
I like photojournalism, travel, documentary and street photography. The streets are the most accessible subject for me, since i use public transport in my way to work. It is mainly during this time that i try to do some streetphotography. That’s why my camera bag is also my lunch bag, and instead of having some fancy accessories, i carry a fork, a knife and some fruit.
I started to shoot the streets in 2013 with a DSLR and a 50mm equivalent prime but the weight and size started to annoy me. I don’t shoot every day, and i never know if i am gonna have the time and the will for taking photos. The Fuji x100s is a camera that i can have with me always, and I’d rather prefer to carry it and take no photos than wanting to take a photo and having no camera.
I am still trying to find a path and defining my style, until then, i can only practise and learn.
The contents of my camera bag are:
- Lowepro Exchange Messenger bag
- FujiFilm X100S
- Extra battery
- Cell phone
- Home keys
- Termic lunch bag
- Knife and fork
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!
