Inside John Hughes’ Camera bag! (Bag No153)

I’m John Hughes a street photographer based in the UK, I spend most of my time shooting in Cambridge and London. I can’t believe I’ve never sent my whats in my bag to,
First, we’ll start with my camera bag this had to be lightweight and small, yet still big enough to carry what I needed. I decided on the Billingham Hadley Small (Khaki / Tan). I love this bag it’s lightweight, waterproof and it doesn’t look like a camera bag, perfect for the streets of London, it never gets noticed. The bonus for me is that it never gets in the way and most of the time I forget I’m carrying it. I carry my:

  • iPhone 8 plus,
  • a pen,
  • business cards,
  • 5 spare batteries,
  • spare SD cards,
  • a Lee filter cleaning cloth,
  • Bose wireless headphones (for my travelling) and of course
  • my wallet, well I have to pay for things!

Of course, I also have a camera and lens. When I head out onto the streets I like to take 1 camera and 1 lens, right now that would be my

  • Fujifilm X-T2 and
  • Fujifilm 56mm F1.2 lens which I love, however, if the light is perfect I’ll also take my
  • 23mm F2 lens.


Anyway, that’s all I ever take to the streets, I never need anything more.

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:
