In your bag No: 610, Sandy Blair
All the way from Sunny Scotland, we have Sandy Blair and his humungous bags. Seriously, I could not lug all that lot around all day, but Sandy does. Perhaps the Jazz soothes any troubles away. We will see.

Hi, my name is Sandy Blair, I live and work in Edinburgh Scotland. In terms of photography, I would describe myself as an enthusiastic amateur, who particularly likes shooting un-posed subjects (candid/street/performance/architecture) using available light.

I have a range of bags (far too many!) that I use depending on the situation.

The bag that I’d like to share, and the gear that goes in it, is my set-up choice for this years Edinburgh Jazz & Blues Festival, that runs from 19-28 July 2013.

My usual ‘day’ bag would be the Crumpler, with just the Fuji inside.


Starting top left and working from left to right:

Bag 1: Lowepro, all of the gear featured fits in this bag. Designed to be worn around the waist, but I use over my shoulder.

On the bag: My access-all-areas pass (my most important piece of kit for this shoot).

Bag 2: Crumpler Light Delight 4000, I’ve include this as it’s my current favourite bag when carrying one camera. Supper light, with just the right amount of padding.

Camera 1 (digital): Fuji XE-1 + 35mm Fuji lens + wrist strap. Only had the Fuji a short time, but loving this camera.

Camera 2 (digital): Canon EOS 500d + 50mm Canon lens.

Camera 3 (film): Canon EOS 500 + 90mm Tamron lens + wrist strap.

Water bottle

Glasses, notebook, and pen

Black Rapid strap

Hand wash

Business Cards (Moo)

Spare batteries

Memory Cards

Film (x6)

iPhone and headphones

The photograph was taken with a Lumix LX5, which is my pocket, never-go-anywhere-without-camera.
