In your bag No: 581, Clifford Cooper
Clifford shares with us his bag today, from the US of A. He also shares with us his smokes and ability to lose lighters. Come and check out this cool film and digital mix bag.
I’ve been following this site not for a very long time but now I am addicted, its quite frankly given me a bit of GAS. But has also been a means of inspiration for me on my travels to the southeast this summer. I am from NYC/NJ and am a student at the School of Visual Arts, I have studied street photography for 2 years and have been shooting mainly street and documentary photography for 2 years as a focus of mine, so i figured since this is such a great street photography site I’d love to contribute in whats in my bag, even though my bag does change often.
Current bag in Thailand and Hong Kong.
Timbuk2 commuter 2.0 (snoop camera insert)
sketchbook and pens
Nikon f100(usually with 3-5 rolls of portra 160 or 400) or a Nikon D700(what I took the picture with) + 35mm and or 50mm primes
2 packs of smokes with 2 lighters ( I lose lighters often)
Lots of CF and SD cards.
I am still working on a full website but for now since I have been in the southeast I have been keeping friends and family and randoms active by my FB street photography page
and my tumblr page(which includes also random iphone pics as well)
My inspirations are the great Stephen Shore, Lee Friedlander, and William Eggleston. And as much as they are inspiration lately coming on here and seeing other’s work makes me so motivated to shoot!
Salutations and cheers!
Thanks for sharing your bag with us Cliff. I love the F100, it was the first really professional camera that I got my hands on when I was at university.
