In your bag No: 1358, Brandon Wynnychuk
Today we jet off to Canada, to check out Brandon’s sweet setup. A couple of iconic cameras and a very interesting bag, looks like the Swedish military has sparked a bit of a fashion trend with photographers.
Hi Bellamy, my name is Brandon, I am 23 and I live in Alberta, Canada. I was very excited to move east out of the mountains and onto the prairie, as I like shooting in bright sunlight and the mountains often block the sun (even in the summer).
I have been shooting film for about 6 years now. I started reloading 126 cassettes for an Instamatic x-15 and eventually collected more and more cameras, most of which I am now rid of. Collecting is fun and try different setups, but don’t get carried away.
I like to walk around a lot and when I do I usually have a small compact, right now the Olympus XA, and some kind of interchangeable lens camera, right now an M3 with a Canon 50mm. I use an old Swedish military bag to keep my stuff in; inside is usually a scarf, a Gossen meter, lip balm, and some rolls of Ektar.
I scan my film and try to post one or two pictures a day on my Instagram, @wynnychuk.
I like to check out the articles and book reviews on your site, and it is neat to see what kind of stuff people carry with them.
Thanks for sharing your bag with us, Brandon. Those Swedish military bags are pretty rad and very popular now too.

Send me a high resolution image of the bag. Optimum size is 1500px across. Please ensure there is a bag in the shot, unless you don’t use one. The more you can write about yourself the better, make it appealing and tell us a story. Snapshots of your gear with a camera phone and no words will not be featured.
