In your bag number 80, Joshua Haygood
Dear bag lovers, todays bag is coming to you from the Lone Star State…and features some super lovely gear. Come and check out what Joshua has in his bag…

Hello, my name is Joshua Haygood and I live and work in Fort Worth, Texas. I am a full-time student majoring in advertising. I am not a full-time photographer professionally but I do take freelance work as often as possible and always carry my camera bag or at least some of its contents with me.

I fell in love with photography in high school with a Nikon D80 shooting for the yearbook staff. As I have continued to feed my addiction to the craft, my loyalties fell to film as my favored medium. There is just something honest and tangible about the quality that comes from 35mm film. My Nikon F5 is by far my favorite camera and I doubt I’ll ever find another SLR to replace it. I’ve only just recently been shooting rangefinder bodies but I am sure I will never stop now. I will get a Leica someday when I can swing it. That Leica MP looks pretty delicious. My camera bag changes quite often as do its contents but I thought I would go ahead and submit my current setup.

My favorite subject to shoot by far is social interaction. Whether it be street-photography, reportage, event photography, or just my own family, I love capturing the beauty and imperfections alike in human relationships.

Developing film in my city is becoming harder to do without my own darkroom but I try to keep a stream of images on my tumblr and website. Thanks for checking out my bag.

    Lovely red dot on the GT! I’ll find one and stick it on my GTN so people will show me some respect. LOL

    wondering when that would get noticed. I stuck it on there one day for fun and never took it off.
