What's in your bag, Thorsten Overgaard?
Aarhus, Denmark, March 2, 2013:
In the day to day one should always wear a camera, and unless you have assignments or special things you need to photograph, the travel kit for a Leica M photographer can very well be just a camera and one lens over the shoulder, and then extra battery and SD-card in the pocket. Stylish, always ready, and never a tired shoulder or painful back from carrying a camera.
Here's a couple of videos showing what I pack in my bags for travel, a days shooting, walking around and such.
The inside of a bag tell the real quality
The way I shop for bags is that I look for what's inside. The hallmark of a quality bag is that the inside is as high quality as the outside. Examplified in a Fendi bag I saw with skin outside, crocodile inside. It was a female bag, but a bag is in my opinion a personal gadget, and the inside of it should fill you with as much pleasure as the outside.
"Simply the best - I learnt a lot from you at the Photo Seminar. It was great to spend a lot of time with you and your experience. I am still deep impressed and it were very memorable days for me. I highly recommend anyone Thorsten's photo seminars. Now it is time for my homework"

"It's because of your site that I learned what I use today in taking pictures with my Leica M9-P. It's the best site on the net, period."
A video from our workshop in London, January 2013. from our makeup artist, Jack Tyson:
"I just wanted to say that I have come across your website quite by accident whilst trying t find some information on servicing my old Minolta meter (really!).
I am a trained photographic technologist since 1988. Your site contains some of the most stunningly composed and exposed images I have seen. Keep up the excellent work and I look forward to reading more!"
