In your bag 891, Romain Cailleaud
Romain brings us the most simple of simple. Just some cameras and a whole bunch of passion. Check it out.

Hello my name is Romain Cailleaud, i’m a 30 years old french guy and i take pictures

i start shooting at 15 with my skateboard friends and since then i never stopped, my first camera was a Nikon FM2 with a Nikon Nikkor 50 1.2. I tried digital photography but this was not for me, i love film photography, i don’t like taking 100 pictures a day and spending a lot of time behind the computer, i prefer spending this time in the darkroom, developing the film, printing in the darkroom, this is so addictive and so rewarding when you see the final print.
3 years ago i decided to buy my first Leica (now i have 3…) an m6 with a 35mm, i am more a 50mm guy then i bought an m3 when i saw the m3 i was so impress by the build quality of this 50 years old camera and the feeling was so right, then i bought an m2, for the hasselblad i don’t know i love cameras…

i don’t have a bag i usually just pick one of those camera and that’s it, i put the strap around my neck and let’s roll!

-Leica m2 black paint (repaint by a french master, not real black paint) with a Summicron 35 ASPH

-Leica m3 with a Summilux 50 ASPH

-Hasselblad 500CM with 80 Planar

some Trix 400 or Neopan 100

and with those camera i do that

    If I could afford to buy those two Leicas, that setup would be exactly what I’d shoot with.
