In your bag No: 1372, Gildas Lepetit-Castel
A French photographer, using Japanese cameras, to shoot the streets of Belgium. C’est fantastique! Come and check out this well organised street shooters bag.

Hi ! I’m Gildas Lepetit-Castel, french photographer. I love to walk and shoot in the streets. 50mm is my favorite lens to observe the world around me. This day I’m going to Belgium for shoot the last pics of my coming ​street photo ​book.

In my London’s Merc bag, solid and perfect to be discret, I put :

– a Canon eos 300v camera with a 50 mm f/1.4. I love canon eos,

​I​ have a lot of 300, 500, 50 & 5 camera I buy for some money.
– a Pentax P30 with a Ricoh 50mm f:2. A good friend offer it to me. I use it for shooting color rolls. It’s a solid and small camera very simple and good working.

– an old Minolta Riva Panorama for some panoramic shot. I love this small camera !

– BW Films : Ilford Pan 400 use at 400 or push to 800. And some rolls of Kodak Tri-x. I push them to 1600 or 3200 by night. I like his grain in Rodinal

– Color Films : some rolls of Fuji X-tra 800.

– lenspen, pen and Notebook

– Tascam recorder for savong some ambiant sound.

– always a lot of albums (jazz, rock) in my ipod.

– & a good book about a city I love.
