What’s in the bag

My Camera Bag

I’m a firm believer in “it’s not what you’ve got; its how you use it!” Nevertheless, I know some people are interested in what gear I use so I’m happy to share.

My workhorses are Canon 5d’s. I love the full frame and relatively compact feel for a pro-spec SLR. Lenses of choice are: 24-105L, 70-200L, and the 50mm 1.4f prime which is an amazing lens for the price. I’ve got a couple of Canon flash guns and a sturdy tripod.

I also use a Leica MP with 35mm & 90mm lenses. Much of my travel and street photography is shot with this and my film of choice is Kodak’s TriX & Tmax for black and white and Fuji Velvia for colour.

Occasionally, I’ll dig out my Bronica SQAI, which is a 6×6 medium format camera. It’s a brick to carry around and it slows the shooting down somewhat so I don’t get to use it as much as I would like.

I’ve got various accessories – reflectors, filters, light stands etc. etc. and my Christmas list is always as long as your arm for stuff I’d love to have! I can’t understand why no-one has bought me a Hasselblad yet. Truth be told I like to keep things simple, using natural light where possible and not getting too caught up in the latest fangled gadgets.

Oh other things in the bag…business cards, iphone, note book, Oyster Card and painkillers for when I’ve walked my feet off!
