In your bag number 99, Heg Van Nasche
Wow, we are almost there! Nearly the fabled 100. But we should not let that overshadow what we have for you today. Another great bag for you people, this time from France. Over to you Heg…
My name is Heg Van Nasche.
I’m an amateur photographer from Paris FRANCE, almost 30 years old
i shoot mostly on my way to and from work, in the train, the streets, and also during some long walks across the city.
i try to catch scenes from everyday moments, the kind of one you don’t usually pay attention to.
This is the content of my waterproof futura 2000 bag:
OLYMPUS OM-1 with 135 f/3,5 and 50mm f/1,4 lens
Ricoh GR1S (which is in fact not in my bag but always in my pocket)
Rolls of HP5
A pocket knife
small cards with a link to my blog i give to people i shoot on the streets if they wanna see their pictures.
Those two cameras are the one i use most, i sometime trade the OM-1 for a medium 6×6 zeiss ikon from 1949.
I started taking pictures two years ago with DSLR borrowed from my GF, bought an olympus EPL-1 with manual lenses a year later and then felt into film photography with cameras such as Minolta hi matic 7s, Yashica electro 35… I just like those rangefinders!

twitter is this way:
Thanks Mr Bellamy, see you maybe in the streets of tokyo next month, i’ll be hunting for treasure!
Thanks to you Heg, for sharing your bag and for showing us what you like to shoot. It is a real pleasure.
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.
Why do some many people carry knives? The two countries I know, you get arrested for carrying them, those being England & Japan.
I’m pretty sure the deadlier item in the bag are the cigarettes, not the knife. ;)
Anyway, good to know it’s illegal (or problematic) to carry a pocket knife in England. I won’t pack mine the next time I fly.
The knife is used for what we call apéro here in paris. Saucisson and cheese with red wine by the river or in parks might happen without notice!
