In your bag No: 743 – Matt Day

In your bag 743, Matt Day
Looks like we are starting strong in 2014 with another great bag for you all. Matt shares with us a very similar bag to the one I carry. Check it out.

My name is Matt Day, I’m 22 years old, and I’m a photographer from southern Ohio.
I shoot portraits for a living. Everything from families, senior portraits, engagements, you name it.
My personal work is everything else that I see between jobs. Street, landscape, whatever. It’s just photography.
That’s the work that this bag is for, so I’ll get right to it.

Ona Bowery Bag – I’ve searched and searched for the right camera bag since I started shooting ten years ago. For the daily setup that I carry at all times, this bag is it. I used to use the Domke F5XB and that was a nice bag, especially for the price, but I can trust this bag way more. Quality stuff and it’s simple. It stays out of the way.

Leica M6 TTL & 35mm f/2 Summicron ASPH – What’s there to say? Wanted this setup for so long that I basically sold every other camera to have it and then sold the remaining cameras because this is all I ever use anymore. It’s a camera/lens combination that’ll be with me forever.

JCH Film Case – Love that thing. Always full of Tri-X. Nothing else.

All of the extra stuff like pens, Sharpies, notebooks, lens caps, filters… Nothing really to say about that stuff. It’s there.

Maybe in the future, I’ll send in my “business bag” where I carry several different cameras and formats for each shoot. That could be a fun one.

Thanks for doing something like this on your site, Bellamy. One of the only sites out there I can enjoy.

    Hi there,
    I like keep it simple, one main camera with one lens attached plus one spare compact point-and-shot so I really like your bag, Matt. My lens of choice is the 35mm or the 50mm (I relly like the simply perfection of the 50), it depends on my feelings. I’m selling some of my stuff for a Leica M2 (I had one few years ago but sold it stupidly) paired with a 50mm ‘cron so I hope to be part of the leica club soon.
    Cheers to all

    Nice. What’s the strap on the camera?

    Simple, appropriate. Good to see the filter.

    Nice, simple and straight to the point. Just the way I like it. My setup’s pretty similar. Leica M3, some film and a drink.

    I’m having difficulty deciding between the Black and Tan canvas versions of this bag for my new X-T1… But now I also have a similar question to one of the other posters – what strap is that you are using on the Leica?
