Rangefinder Asks Photographers: What’s In Your Camera Bag?

Are you ever curious to know what other photographers haul with them on assignments or when shooting for themselves? This month, Rangefinder, sister publication of PDN, asked several photographers to open up their camera bags and photograph the contents.

The variety of gear they carry is interesting, naturally. We also got a kick out of how each photographer’s photos reflect their style, personality and packing abilities. Fine-art photographer  Lisa Elmaleh lugs one jar each of peanut butter and jelly; fashion photographer Ken Shung usually shoots digital but still carries his Rolleis, he says; Frank Ockenfels 3 brings lots and lots of pens, apparently, and other things “to keep me entertained while I wait…and wait…and wait”; music photographer Paris Visone says, “My camera bag is like my baby. It’s heavy, full of crap, and I’m constantly giving it piggyback rides.”
