Inside Axel Valery’s Camera bag! (Bag No148)

Hi guys, I’m a French photographer, I’ve been living in Paris for the last 9 years, started photography about 6 years ago with the Iphone 4S, and that’s when I decided to learn photography and make a living of it, wich fortunately happened 4 years ago. Started street photo with the Ricoh GR2 and then bought the Leica Q wich really changed my game !

I never have a bag, but I like to have my Galaxy Note 8 connected to my Leica to shoot discretely while it’s hanging from my neck, or shoot with my old Canon and it’s 50mm 1.4 on film. The notebook is to write ideas or just anything, a soothing therapy between shots…

What is in my bag:

  • Leica Q fixed 28mm 1.7, amazing glass, fast autofocus, my baby !
  • Canon AE-1 with 50mm 1.4, to have a different perspective and an analogue feel.
  • Notebook and foutain pen, because I love the sensation of the nib carresing the paper, always good to note ideas.
  • Samsung Galaxy Note 8, because, well it’s my phone first of all, and it’s also my wifi remote control for specific shots with my Leica, and also for editing on snapseed, and posting on Instagram.


What can I say ? Apart that living out your passion is a blessing, don’t listen to your entourage and follow your Dreams…
