Inside William J. Simpson’s Camera bag! (Bag No142)

Hello fellow Street Hunters,

My name is William J Simpson, (the J stands for Jack) hence being affectionately known in most street photography circles as @jackthestreet. I currently live in Napa California however most of my street work has been done in San Francisco and abroad when travelling. I am a San Francisco Paramedic by trade so cruising the city by ambulance all day allows me to make mental notes of places where the light and setting are ripe for interesting photographs when off duty. I shoot both digital and film and only prime lenses; the 27mm and 23mm being my two favorites. I am drawn to shooting oddities in the environment, minimalism, bold colors, low angles and abstract alignment of subject and background – but this is forever changing and part of what makes street photography so enjoyable.

The contents of my camera bag are:
