In your bag 1011, David Shoukry
David has made a relatively late change to film, but now he has an iteresting mix of gear. I do hope he doesn’t carry all of that though.
I’m a British Music teacher, living and working in Malaysia. I’ve been in Asia for a few years, with my wife and daughter, working and travelling. Aside from living in a great climate, South East Asia is fantastic for travel and photography, and I have spent the last few years shooting portraits, landscape and street in India, Nepal, Singapore and Thailand to name a few.
I’ve used my Canon 5D MK2 for most of this but have recently come to film – comparatively late at the age of 39. Like everyone else, using film has slowed me down and I take much more care with each shot, especially with the Leica R5 which takes pride of place. In the photo you can see an orange filter on the R5, which had a roll of Tri-X inside.
The bag is an old Billingham from the 90s, and it carries around at various times:
Canon 5D MKII
Canon EOS 3
Leica R5 w/ Summicron 50mm f2
Canon 50mm f1.2L
Canon 135mm f2L
Sigma 35mm f1.4 ART
Thanks for sharing your bag with us David. Though I am curious, why do you carry your passport?
Check out the links and make sure you come and comment.
Keep them coming folks, we need more submissions, so get your bag on Japancamerahunter.com. Send me a hi resolution image of the bag (please make sure it is horizontal, 720px across is optimal) and its contents, with some details about yourself and what you shoot. Oh and don’t forget your contact details (twitter, flickr, tumbler et al). Send the bag shots here. Please understand that there is a long wait now as there is a backlog of submissions. Not all make the cut, so make sure yours is funny/interesting/quirky. And please make sure the shot is of good quality, as the ones that are not do not go up.
Great photos and a very well put together website. Great job.
I always carry my passport in SE Asia; you can shortcut any “interaction” with the local constabulary and proceed directly to paying the “fine” for whatever arbitrary infraction you’ve been pull up on this time. Also, my wallet is a bellroy hide & seek which has a hidden note sleeve allowing you to limit the cost of “fine” to the visible contents of your wallet.
