Hello hello. My name is Dan Muchnik. I got stoked to send in my bag because you just featured my friend Matt Day’s bag. I shoot primarily skateboarding – hence the strobist gear, but much adventure in the form of both backpacking and other travel as well. The best place to check out my work at the moment is this interview up on Transworld Skateboarding - http://skateboarding.transworld.net/1000172628/photos/proof-sheet-dan-muchnik/ I also have an instagram page @muchnikphoto
As you can tell, I haul a lot of gear, and sometimes on foot (or rather, board) as we’re skating the city (San Francisco, at the moment). The digital gear lives in the big tamrac bag, and the hassy lives in the shoulder bag. The lowepro slingshot stays empty so I can take a smaller tailored set of gear for any shoot which comes up at a moment’s notice. what follows is a comprehensive list of the gear pictured. Cheers, and happy shooting!

10.5mm fisheye f2.8 DX
12-24mm F4 DX
50mm f1.4 AF-D
70-210mm F4 AF

Thanks for sharing your bag with us Dan, don’t worry, we forgive you for the i-phone thingy. Man, when I was skating it was my dream to be in transworld. Very cool.
Check out the links and make sure you come and comment.
Keep them coming folks, we need more submissions, so get your bag on Japancamerahunter.com. Send me a hi resolution image of the bag (please make sure it is horizontal) and its contents, with some details about yourself and what you shoot. Oh and don’t forget your contact details (twitter, flickr, tumbler et al). Send the bag shots here. Please understand that there is a long wait now as there is a backlog of submissions. Not all make the cut, so make sure yours is funny/interesting/quirky. And please make sure the shot is of good quality, as the ones that are not do not go up.
