In your bag No: 571, Joakim Fjeldli
Today we have a very cool bag from Norway. A very nice and simple mix of film, digital and wood flooring. Come and check out this journalists bag.
My name is Joakim Fjeldli, and I am a 28 year old photographer/photojournalist from Norway.
I work mainly with digital when I photograph for work, so being tired of digital when it comes to my past-time, I take to the analog world. I have two complete Hasselblads, a Fuji GW690, and more. My work usually means going to accident scenes, fires, etc, and deliver this to national and international news.
My work can be viewed here (in English. Handy, eh?) http://www.fjeldli.com/
I usually spend my days working at a photographic equipment outlet tailored towards the professional market (we are the only such business in Norway that tailor towards the professional market more than the consumer market).
Going to work includes taking the train. I don’t bring my heavy bag full of my Canon 1D Mark III, 24-70, 70-200, 14mm and 580 EX2 flash with me every day unless I drive. So this is my commuter bag.
I recently got a hold of a Leica M6 and quickly aquired myself a Voigtländer Nokton 35mm f/1.4 Classic to go with it.
Being a photojournalist, and having to capture things as they happen to report them as fast as possible, my phone, a Samsung Galaxy S4 (not pictured) will just not do.
So I have a Canon Powershot S100 with an Eye-Fi card in it with me just in case “something were to happen”.
So to summarize, the contents are:
- Leica M6 black with leather strap
- Voigtländer 35mm f/1.4 Nokton Classic
- Canon Powershot S100 (with Eye-Fi card)
- Roll of Kodak Portra 400
- Roll of Ilford XP2 Super
- Roll of Kodak Tri-X 400 (in the M6)
- Osram B16 Studio flash (cute little thing I found on eBay)
- Notebook and pen
- Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1, mainly for entertainment on the train rides
- Led Lenser P4 flashlight
- Leather messenger bag, “Schoolboy” by Billykirk
