Hi,

My name is Arnaud Bicand, I am a French amateur photographer based in Lyon. I am 22 and I started photography about 4 years ago. I shoot both digital and film photography, even though I haven’t processed my films yet. Kind of crazy I know.

I started photography with a Nikon D3100, but its size and its weight made me feel uncomfortable shooting with, so I ended up taking 0 pictures. It all started when I got my Ricoh GR II, which is an absolute beast.

Then I started shooting my everyday life including streets, landscapes and people. I wouldn’t leave the house without my Ricoh.

Here’s my camera bag :

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…

Hi.
I’m a Brazilian photographer living in São Paulo. I’m 48 and started on photography about 30 years ago, but I’ve been taking street photography more seriously since 2012. I have two basic setups:

  1. When I leave the house exclusively to shoot, I usually take my bag with a D610 and two lenses, an old Nikkor AF 24mm 2.8 and a Sigma 24-70mm 2.8. The first one is lighter and covers most of my needs and the Sigma is a good alternative when I can’t get close enough to my subject. Eventually (but rarely, I must admit) I put in the bag my FM2 loaded with an Ilford ISO 400 film roll.
  2. When commuting or walking due to work (I have to walk a lot while working), I take a small Canon G12 in my backpack or carry it in a small Lowepro case attached to my belt.

Inside Sebastian Jacobitz’ Camera bag! (Bag No146)

I am Sebastian Jacobitz, Street Photographer from Berlin and currently traveling in Southeast Asia, including remote places in a small village near a mountain for a few weeks.

Normally I try to go as light as possible when I am photographing in my hometown and don’t need much except the camera, maybe a flash and some spare batteries. But for the travel, I needed to prepare much more thoroughly because electricity is not stable in the village as well as the mobile Internet.

So here is my camera bag and its content.

Hello everyone!

My name is Thomas Hammoudi, and I’m a 28yo street photographer (and also blogger) from France. I’ve started street photography two years ago, by shooting my everyday trip to work, from Rouen (in Normandy) to Paris. I started with a bulky reflex camera, quite discrete (thanks silent mode!) but very heavy, probably too much to be bear every day. So I change for a Canonet this summer, and the Fujifilm this winter. I don’t made any difference between my analog and my digital practice. The analog just appear to be quite limitative (you can’t change the ISO, speed is limited to 1/500th of a second), but except that, they’re pretty the same rangefinder cameras : You point, you shoot, no noises.

So, in the bag there is:

Inside David Fidalgo’s Camera bag! (Bag No144)

Hello Hunters!

My name is David Fidalgo, also known as “Bricks”. I’m one of the CoFounders of La Calle es Nuestra, one of the most important Collectives in the Spanish Community.
At my beginnings in Street Photography I used to shot with a heavy full frame system, which was also very noisy (when you use the burst mode in this kind of systems, you feel as if you are in the middle of the war with an AK-47).

That’s not nice for Street Photography (at least for me).

Last year I bought the X100F compact system and everything changed. Now I go everywhere with it and feel like a ninja… silent and lethal. That’s why my advice is that, talking about cameras for Street Photography, smaller is better (maybe not in terms of pure quality, but your pictures will look more candid and original).

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.

Inside William J. Simpson’s Camera bag! (Bag No142)

Hello fellow Street Hunters,

My name is William J Simpson, (the J stands for Jack) hence being affectionately known in most street photography circles as @jackthestreet. I currently live in Napa California however most of my street work has been done in San Francisco and abroad when travelling. I am a San Francisco Paramedic by trade so cruising the city by ambulance all day allows me to make mental notes of places where the light and setting are ripe for interesting photographs when off duty. I shoot both digital and film and only prime lenses; the 27mm and 23mm being my two favorites. I am drawn to shooting oddities in the environment, minimalism, bold colors, low angles and abstract alignment of subject and background – but this is forever changing and part of what makes street photography so enjoyable.

Inside Yanidel’s Camera bag! (Bag No141)

Hello, my name is Yanidel and I am a Swiss street photographer based in Rosario, Argentina.

For the last 8 years, I have been using a Leica M9 with a 35mm Leica Summilux Asph and a 60mm Konica Hexanon F1.2. I believe I use both lenses with equal frequency and switch depending on the need of a specific shot or my mood of the day. I do own other lenses and like to break the routine every once in a while but I never go out with more than two lenses; a wide angle and a tele (50-75mm). I try to avoid bags but do use and old Bally leather bag to carry the idle lens and a spare battery on hot summer days when I can’t wear anything with a pocket. When not out specifically shooting, I will still take my camera with one lens over my shoulder in case I stumble on a worthy scene. The unexpected often happens when you least expect it.

Hello Street Hunters!
My name is Marcelo de Coghlan, I am from Buenos Aires, Argentina. I am not a professional photographer, my professional work is dentist. I love the portraits and the street photography. The street photography is very difficult, but the best way to learn is carry the camera and walk. I walk to work, with camera ever ready. Sorry for my English, I am learning.
Best regards!
Marcelo
