What is inside photographer's bag is usually a well-kept secret. Some photographers are happy to share it, some keep it to themselves, but on average we almost all use the same tools and the final result depends more on the creativity of the photographer, technical knowledge, eye for composition & small details, luck and of course post-processing.
'In My Photography Bag' series of articles we aim to collect and look at the work of established & upcoming skateboard photographers of past and present, as well as riders turned photographers and show what can be achieved with both simple & sophisticated tools available on the market.
We continue the series with Joel Peck - Berlin based freelance photographer, film enthusiast & Grey skate mag regular contributor.
To keep things simple and reliable Joel uses a minimal digital setup of Canon 5D Mark III body plus 15mm f/2.8 EF, 40mm f/2.8 EF STM, 70-200mm f/2.8 L EF lenses for his professional work. He also has a set of compact film cameras that he carries on all the time like Minolta CLE & Yashica T4.
Joel was kind enough and provided us with a diverse selection of his recent work shot with the equipment and accompanied it with the technical insights.
Check the rest of his great film and digital photography work on his website here.
