In your bag No: 1590 – Andy Ong

When Andy isn’t civil engineering he’s whipping these bad boys out.

Hi, my name is Andy Ong. I currently work and live in NYC as a civil engineer. I have been getting more and more into photography as the years pass and just capturing scenes from my everyday life, similar to William Eggleston. But I’ve recently I’ve been infatuated with the work by the late Ren Hang and have been gearing efforts into portraiture.

Usually I’m on construction sites day-in day-out so my bag (Brooklyn Industries Shoulder Bag) reflects the tools I generally use on a day to day basis. Nothing fancy, just a bunch of measuring tapes, paper work, and notebooks that are tossed in one compartment and my cameras in another.

Now that it’s getting slightly warmer again, I switched out my xPro2 and currently back on a film kick with my Leica m3 + 50mm cron and my trusty Olympus XA. I usually shoot with Portra 400 or HP5, BUT I have a few rolls of Fuji Natura 1600 that I’ve been itching to use!

When in Doubt, Whip it Out!!!…. your camera that is and capture the moment.
