Hi,

I’m Marcelo de Coghlan, from Buenos aires, Argentina. Dentist is my main activity, and amateur photographer. I love the environment portrait and street photography. I have been using the X100 series for a long time, but last time I discovered that I feel more comfortable with the 50mm lens. Separating the subject from the background easily. Another of my passions is motorcycling. I love travel over dusty roads, and with rain and mud the XT1 with the 50mm f2 wr are perfect because of the weather sealing. The Billingham Bag is extremely tought and waterproof. The rain and snow are magic in street photography, and the new configuration bag and camera is perfect to walk without worries.

Hi,

I’m a professional photographer from Viborg, Denmark. I live from taking images that other people want (to pay for).
Street photography has become a liberation to me; here, I can create the exciting images that satisfy me.

I don’t use my professional equipment for street photography – that gear is much to large and heavy.
Instead I grab my tiny Olympus and a spare battery when walking out the door. It’s all I need.

This camera and kit-lens is so small and 100% silent that I can take images anywhere without being noticed. It gives me the creative freedom to position myself in the right place according to the ambient light and my subjects, and compose the images as I want them to be without attracting attention. For me, that is what it’s all about and that’s basically what I write in my e-books about the fantastic challenge: street photography.

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:

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).

Let’s check what’s inside my bag!

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.
