In your bag number 189, Barry Ellery
Right, I am off to Hong Kong, but before I go I have another lovely bag for you…and this one is meticulously labelled and laid out. Come and see Barry’s bag.
Konnichiwa JapanCamera Hunter my name is Barry Ellery; I’m from Columbus, Indiana but I live and work in Japan. I’m a amateur photographer still trying to master the art of photography and like many instead of learning one camera system completely I’m quickly buying another one.
I mostly shoot with digital cameras but I want to go back to shooting film for a while. Although carrying all this equipment around with me daily is heavy I enjoy it because whenever I find someone looking at buying a new camera I let them fiddle around with my equipment and since most of my cameras are Nikon’s I do love shooting with a Cannon if I can get my hands on one.
I go to work pretty early in the morning just so I can have the afternoons to explore and go shooting, and during the weekends I’m off somewhere on a train to explore what Japan has to offer.
I really enjoy street photography and you will find me hanging around Shiybuya train station. I usually carry my bag with me at all times or it’s close by somewhere.
My job allows me to travel around Asia so like a tourist I find myself just snapping photos quickly and my Flickr account is full of photos of the places I been. Lately as I find myself looking though the thousands of photos I have loaded I can clearly see I didn’t have a clear understanding of what a good photograph should depict. This is why I’m going back to film so I think before I press that button.
