In your bag number 204, James Madelin
Todays bag comes from Auckland in New Zealand, and the man behind it is the man behind the Orbis Ring Flash. This is a very comprehensive bag…or case. Come and see.

Hi everyone,

I am a New Zealand-based freelance editorial automotive, press and commercial photographer. My travel schedule takes me to the Northern Hemisphere several times a year.
Freelance clients have included, among others, the Herald on Sunday, the Sunday Star-Times, the NZ Automobile Association, Getty Images, Adshel and more. Automotive photography is my passion but several years of newspaper photography provide a strong foundation to my photojournalism credentials.
I work in the commercial sphere too, fulfilling the photography requirements for several large corporates when not working on the global photo accessory business I founded in 2006.

Here you go, at long last… my “In The Bag”… or more aptly, “In the Case”. In this case a pelican 1510.

This is my location street photography setup…. I have about 10 different carrying/transport systems and will pack to suit the assignment.

I was heading out the other day to shoot some bus shelters and street furniture for a corporate client and along with my 3LeggedThing tripod, this is how I roll. oh, and I always pack a high vis vest too, so that you can hide in plain sight, so to speak, and avoid getting hassled by over-zealous security guards who think they can stop you shooting.
