In your bag No: 582, Gianmaria Veronese
Coming to you from Italy, todays bag has just about all you could need. Film and digital, this bag has some pretty awesome bits of kit inside. Come see what is in Gianmaria’s bag.

Let me introduce myself, my name’s Gianmaria Veronese. I’m an italian 26 year old guy with a strong passion for photography, in particular for street photography.

Normally I go out with just the bag and the Ricoh GR (the new APS-C one) or the Nikon 28ti. I love them both. They’re tiny, and let you be discrete. You can steal genuine candid from everyday life. Then I have a Leica M6 titan with a 35mm Summilux (pre-asph version), that I use with respect. She’s like a queen. I don’t like to use her for everyday shooting, I prefer to use her for precise projects. There’s also a Nikon FM2, a very armored camera, it is always working, so it’s always a good thing to bring it with you. I use the FM2 for very selected portraits with the Nikon 50mm 1.2 AI-S (in the pic too). Last but not least, there’s a Nikon D800 that I use mainly for landscapes (with Nikon 14-24) and for scanning films (with a slide duplicator, a very fast and good solution in spite of expensive scanners). In the pic there’s also my bag, a lightmeter (Sekonic), a Samyang 85mm 1.4 and a couple of rolls of Tri-x, my fav film definitely (developed with R09 one shot).

If you want to see some pic of mine and follow me you can visit my blog ( or like my page on facebook (


All the stuffs you see are not in my bag at the same time, I just put them together for this pic haha.

    Thanks Bellamy for publishing.. You did it in my birthday :)

    I know that someone will think I’m just a wealthy guy addicted with gear.. in reality it’s just a choice.. I prefer to spend my money in what I love, in spite of drinking and smoking and whatever a guy can since he doesn’t have to maintain a family.. thanks anyway for the “young”.. today I’m 27 and I’m terribly facing the 30s.. :D

    More from Gianmaria over on the Sekonic blog, including some insight into how he shoots. I wrote the post, just a disclaimer!

    There’s nothing wrong with being “wealthy”, Gianmaria. In fact, the comment of ZDP is not appropriate: It led you to explain how you could afford your gear in a way that almost sounded like an excuse.

    Però, quello che veramente importa, è che mi piacciono le tue foto, in particolare i ritratti in bianco e nero.

    i will admit that i never get why people need more than one camera. maybe two if you don’t like to switch lenses. give me one camera and one lens and i am happy

    Hi Gian, I don’t think your set up is excessive. Like you say you spend your money on something you are into. Some people buy fancy cars, others spend it on shit loads of cocaine… each to there own, eh. I’ve got to agree with the M6—best camera I have ever owned.

    Can I please ask what bag is that?

    Carsten, just different point of views.. If I have to shoot down in the street, with the D800 I can’t be discrete.. on the other side, if I want to make a portrait, the Ricoh GR is just terrible.. less is more, but not always.. ;)

    Mat, sure.. it’s a Ralph Lauren bag.. can’t tell you which model because it’s not written.. sorry :(

    Thanks Gian, not sure if it’s the same but has a look of this one…

    I think it’s the same line, but mine it’s a little bit bigger.. ;)
