In your bag 773, Clint Vancliff
Now todays bag is already one of my favourites. Not because of the content of the bag(s), but rather for the awesomeness of being a father and son team setup. Come and see what I mean.

I have been coming to the site for a couple months now as I love seeing all the different set-ups people have. 2013 has been the year I have really gotten into shooting film to supplement my digital photography so I thought I’d do my own bag shot. I have got to a point where I am real happy with the kit (after trying a few others) I have amassed for shooting family/BMX/weddings/portraits so here I have:

Lowepro Vertex 200 (recently upgraded from the 100)

Nikon D700

Nikon F5

Nikon 50mm & 20mm

Sigma 105mm macro

Nikon SB 24/25/28 and cheap eBay infra-red triggers

Mamiya 645af

I never liked rangefinders but I randomly came across this Fujica V2 on eBay and instantly fell in love with it. There weren’t any others on there and I could barely find anything about it online or anyone else using one on Instagram. When I got it I took the lens apart and cleaned the shutter blades and found that the spring that pulls the aperture down was broken so it is stuck wide open but fortunately that’s how I like to shoot anyway.

Of course there is the iPhone5 with a 3in1 fisheye lens for instagram, @clintphoto, and incase I film a “You’ve been framed” clip of the little one.

Most photos I post online go on instagram/twitter, some on and my slowly coming along website incase anyone was interested.

Kyes bag

I have another bag shot for you that belongs to my son who has just turned 4. We wanted to get him his own camera for his birthday as he loves to have a go of my D700 (here). We found the Nikon S31 which is shock&waterproof and it came with a nice backpack for him to carry it in.

Back in the summer on holiday we got him a couple of disposables to play with and he loved using those. Instead of paying for a new disposable (£7) and processing (£6) each time I thought I’d find a cheap automatic point and shoot Nikon L35AF (£15) and just buy £1 Agfa film for it to save money in the long run.

His Nan got him a cheap tablet to play games on and watch youtube which is handy for car journeys.

Necessary items for out and about are of course his Pri-marni sunnies, Mario wallet and a juice for refreshment.

Thanks for checking out our bags, look forward to seeing others in the future.

Also, as I am just getting into film I am just getting going on the whole film stash thing so I thought I’d send a picture of what I have so far.


Thanks for taking the time to read this, keep up the awesome work on the site and have a happy new year. Sorry for the poor quality of my bags photo but I only had Kyes S31 to use lol.

    That is great that your lad is getting into photography at the age of 4. My girls are a bit older and not there yet. The eldest looked at the Olympus XA2 that I handed her recently and said with disgust, ‘It hasn’t even got a screen on the back!’

    Hi Clint,

    great pos and I love the example you are setting your youngster. Won’t be long before he is “borrowing” your gear.

    BTW, where do you buy the £1 Agfa film? And is it worth using? Thanks.

    Thanks mate.
    I get it in “Poundland”, if your in the UK.
    I use it to test a camera or for just shooting a roll for the sake of using some film without worrying about the cost, plus i get some prints for a change as i rarely print digital and i send my proper films off for dev/scan by UKfilmlab

    Here’s a link to a macro shot of the negative. rated it at 100 too by the way.
