In your bag No: 1569 – Oliver Gill

Oliver keeps it real simple and ironic when he packs his bag for a promenade.

Greetings from Manhattan!

My name is Oliver Gill and I work as an urbanscape/landscape photographer for various department stores. For that I shoot on D810.

When I’m walking around the city I pack lite. Today is my Nikon F3hp with Nikkor 50mm f1.2 loaded with ektar100. I have not shot with this lens in over a year so it should be fun to play with that razor thin DoF.

I also have a Nikkor 20mm f2.8D for when I get to the new Whitney museum to capture its unique architecture.

The roll of film is Porta 160 which I have not yet shot with and am looking forward to see the colors.

Today is also the first day in a very long time that I will be taking a paint marker with me. I think the Whitney bathrooms may need a little bit of art ;).

My vape for when I start craving a cigarette after lunch.

And all of this goes into my 1992 Marlborough Unlimited backpack.  

I like to use my old D700 fx strap on my F3hp to make discerning photographers do a double take.

Stay shooting!

All the best,

-Ollie Gill

Thanks for sending us your bag shot Ollie. Dig the John Woo style “strap-off”.

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.

    I hope it’s a post April’s Fool comment, and you’re goofing on us.

    There’s no harm done and tagging walls has been done since ancient times and even by cave people.
    It’s done in a long tradition and should be preferred to billboards or any other commercial exploitment and abuse of public space.
