In your bag number 109, Romain Massola
Hey folks, we have a lovely bag for you today, all the way from France. Romain has put together a lovely bag shot for us and in monochrome too! This is how it should be done….

Hi !

I’m an ex wanna-be-pro-music-photographer turned amateur photographer and much more happier like this !
I am 33, live in Lyon, France and mainly shoot street photography, candid portraits of my friends and familly and holyday photos. I always have some photography projects in my head but never realise them because of lazyness…

My bag is an Arthur & Aston one, not deigned for photography gears. It contains my Leica M6 with a Summicron 50mm f2, a Voïgtlander Color Skopar 35mm f2.5, some films (TriX in BW, Kodak Portra, Fuji Reala or Superia 800 in color), a small notebook, two pens (classic and permanent), my iPhone 4S (most used digital camera I have), a cleaning tissue for lenses and glasses and my wallet.
This is my everyday setup that is always with me and from time to time you can find a book or some magazines.

Not pictured is my Nikon D700 + grip with 16mm fisheye f2.8, 35mm f2, 50mm f1.8 and 85mm f1.8 that I now only use for concert photography (not more than 5 times a year). And for this shot !

On the interweb, you can find me on flickr ( or on my newly created tumblr only for my film photos (

Thanks a lot for your website and this section.

Thanks for sharing this bag with us Romain, it is cool to see another M6 in someones bag. That is the camera I shoot with. Check out Romain’s links and comment if you feel inclined, we love us some comments.

Keep them coming folks, we need more submissions, so get your bag on 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.
