In your bag number 250, Jocelen Janon. 

Todays bag comes to you from the southern hemisphere. 

Jocelen is a photographer based in New Zealand and he carries around a very cool bag. come and have a closer look.

Here is my daily bag.

I am usually shooting with Nikon cameras (D700 & D800), but this is the bag I carry when I am on holidays or on the streets of Auckland, New Zealand.

I started photography many moons ago by shooting film, I moved to digital in 2002 and I am now back to shoot a bit of film again.. I am a French Portrait and Documentary photographer based in New Zealand.

My bag was hand made by Scott Rawlings in Utah (USA). I love it: it is spacious, very solid and waterproof: Auckland is very humid and we have rain all the time.


I swap cameras time to time but at the moment I carry:
– Mamiya 6 which I love. At the moment I shoot a lot of Portra 400 ISO, but I tend to try anything I can put my hand on, like the Across 100 I have in here too.
Lens is 75mm F3.5. Strap by Riley G.
– Voigtlander R4A with color-skopar 21mm F4. It has a Ilford HP5 in it. In the bag I also have Ilford FP4+ 125 ISO and Kodak TMax 400 ISO.
– Lumix GF1 with 20mm F1.7. In my view possibly the best pancake lens ever produced. I usually shoot square with that camera: I use it for street photography. A bit like a cheap digital version of an old 120 camera…
– Manuka honey lozenges in their yellow wrapping: it is winter here…
– Pantone pencil and pen.
– Rhodia book note and Moleskine Diary.
– A stack of postcards advertising my current exhibition (and then I can drop some everywhere I go).
– ‘Canteen’ bandana. Canteen is the New Zealand organisation supporting young people living with cancer in New Zealand. With my friend Bryan we are helping them with our photography.

Thanks for sharing your cool bag with us. I lived in Auckland for a while and it is a city that I love. It is great to see a bag from there on the site.
