In your bag number 124, Jared Krause
Today we have a lovely bag shot from Canada. The reason I like this bag is that it is a non conventional camera bag, and there is a nice blend of old and new with the cameras. So lets see what Jared has to say about his bag…

Hi! My name is Jared Krause, I’m a street/travel photographer living in Toronto. I’ve been shooting for about 3 years now, both in Toronto and around the world. I love making pictures, I love cameras, and I love looking at photographs.

This is what I take with me when I go out shooting. If I can’t take my bag I’ll always have at least one of these two little cameras with me even if I’m just off to school or work.

You can find my photos on Flickr at or on my website

Anyway, here’s a list.

1) Army surplus messenger bag. Low price and sturdy quality. The pouches on the right keep the cameras safe and padded, they’re also from the army surplus store.
2) Lumix GF2 Micro 4/3 camera. I’ve been shooting with this for about 5 months now and I love it. I’ve just ordered a hotshoe optical viewfinder on eBay so that’ll be the newest addition to my kit once it arrives.
3) Lenses are 20mm f/1.7, 14mm f/2.5 and 14-42mm f/3.5 – 5.6. The 20mm is a dream. It’s the ideal width for me. The 14mm is great for close up shots at night with the flash. The 14-42 gives the camera some flexibility at family gatherings and other less serious events.
4) Old Soligor MZ-340AF flash I use with the GF2.
5) Pentax PC35AF – This is my current little point and shoot camera. It’s nice to be able to switch between film and digital based on what the settings require.
6) Cheap film. Extra SD card.
7) Notebook for whatever.
8) iPhone 4 for games and phone calls.
9) Swiss army knife I bought in Hong Kong. I take that with me everywhere.
