I’m a graphic desinger currently in my last month of finishing my bachelor degree.
I started getting into photography when I found an old Dacora camera at my grandpa’s about 1 year ago. Since then I’ve been hooked.
I’m solely shooting film and try to use natural light as my main source when shooting. I recently started trying to get into shooting street,
which I really enjoy and already notice some improvements in my style of shooting.
Because I use(d) to shoot a lot during skateboarding trips I’m pretty comfortable carrying my gear in a backpack, but I’m looking for some
smaller shoulder bag, since I prefer traveling light lately.
In my bag:
– Burton Backpack + Water bottle (very essential)
– Stickers of an independent magazine I publish with my colleague (www.daskleineschwarze.tv)
– some cheap flash
– Dacora Camera from the 1950s, it was my granpa’s and it is a fun little toy to shoot with
– Canon A1 SLR with a 50mm/1.8, this was my main in use camera the last year
– Bronica ETRS medium format, trying to shoot more medium format from time to time
– Casio watch
– Leica Mini, mostly use this point and shoot when I’m going out at night
– Contax G1, my latest addition, I’ve just been shooting with this for 2 weeks and still totally loving the camera and the 28mm lens
– Some film, I’m mainly using Ilford XP2, it’s a C-41 B/W film I really like or any other Ilford
– Vintage light meter, cheap but effective
– Shades. always need those
– Knife, my granpa always used to say: “A man without a kinfe is no man.”
– Field notes sketchbook
cheers and thank you
