In your bag No: 1466, Hansjörg Betschart
After a nice long weekend we are back on the saddle with a new bag. This time Hansjörg from Switzerland joins us. Aloha from Switzerland…

Hansjörg Betschart, Bülach, Switzerland

I’m Hansjörg. I live in a small town near Zürich, Switzerland. I shooting just black and white, because i develop itself in my own small darkroom.

I make architcture and try to earn money… but i still love my work. I keep my camera on me all the time. On sundays I take pictures with an old Hasselblad from 1969, professionally I use the digital Leica M. The rest of the time i shoot with my Leica MP. 

Bag: It’s a Filson Magnum field bag. This bag gets a nice patina, big enough fort he camera stuff, small enough to go.

Camera: Leica MP, what more can i say… i like this camera.

Lenses: i mostly shoot the Summicron 35mm, sometimes the 50mm collapsible because these lenses have the same filter thread. 

Film: usually i use the TriX 400 from Kodak, in a old 35mm Cannister.

Filter: i use filter in green, yellow, orange, red and gray

Cleaning: Lenspen and a Giotto’s small rocket air blower (The security at the airport has always pleasure)

Anything else: Pen, Analogbook, Notebook and my all time favourite Hula Girl (absolutely necessary)

In November this Year my pictures are shown at the Leica Gallery Zürich.

Keep them coming folks, we need more submissions, so get your bag on
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.

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.
