In your bag 1154, Raphaël Ott
Check out todays bag. A compact camera filled bag. Neat and tidy, just how we like it. Check it out.

Hi Guys, Hi Bellamy !

I’m Raphaël, I’m a “1990 born French Graphic designer DJ” who comes out of school the last year.

I like hard shadow, back portrait, silhouettes, nature, texture, fog, grain and mistake…

To be honest i’m not a photographer with a lot of technics, that why I use mostly compact fixed lens film camera, and also because I like it raw, dirty and personal, like a diary !

Back in time when i shot mostly live show I used to walk around with a Mark II after my classic Rebel XTI but i was bored by the impersonal side of DSLR camera… So I sold everything and bought few analogs cameras, a scanner… and a small and cool X100S !

Generaly I take the ricoh GR1S loaded with b&w roll, this one blew my mind but i’m also afraid to lose the lcd screen…I take as well a Yashica T4 with some color film and my X100S who is my only digital camera. Then i take all the time a backup sweater and beanie (or cap) to be comfy all day, some usb sticks, tools, backup batterys and a funny gopro… and voilà !

My big regret is all the time the same… I don’t take enough pictures !! I was in berlin and i only shot one roll during one week ! hit me !

And there is few others guys at home :

    Martin, that’s a Chrome backpack. Orlov, Pawn or Ivan, depending on size.

    Raphaël, great work, man. 22 Sep 2014 is something else.

    I read this with an accent. Anyway, my gear is shrinking too. Nice setup.

      Actualy i switch my fuji for a ricoh GR … The x100s is amazing but finaly to big for me. My only regret is the iso capacity of the Fuji. But having a compact apsc hooked to my pant or in my pocket is priceless !

      Oh, beside the point, i buy a “flashair” sd card from Toshiba, if your looking for a wifi card cheaper than eyefi go for it ! Working great with my iphone and jpeg shoots!

    Thanks for the info. Is just that Bellamy and I are working in a small project about camera bags. Stand by for when he releases the article :)

    absolutely love your work Raphaël! both photography and graphic design (in which i’m studying) how are you liking the gr1s? keep it up!


      Raphaël March 30, 2015 at 8:54 pm /

      Thanks Harley, nice gallery too ! Actually i switch and upgrade my graphic design stuff on Behance (link in the cargo link) !

      The first think I like with the Ricoh is the size, more compact than a mju 2 or the yashica T4, the two are a bit bulky. Hands feeling is also very very cool, strong and heavy feelings ! With the aperture and exposure compensation you are more free than others compacts and that lovely ! Although I would like speed priority too… But my first roll on it blow my mind ! Like I said the only think that i really don’t like with this guy is the fragility of the LCD screen, mine is okay but i don’t take this guy all the time with me to avoid to weaken it. That why I bought the last digital GR. But maybe one day i sell my GR1S to buy something less fragile like a Contax but i probably miss the wide angle … !

      Don’t worry too much about the LCD, mine started to fail but a local repair shop repaired it easily.

    Really like your tumblr, Raphaël. Embracing the grain is what it’s all about, great stuff.
