Have you ever wondered what gear your favorite photographers are using, and want to take a look into their camera bags? ShotKit is the site for you. Started by Sydney-based photographer Mark Condon, ShotKit offers glimpses into the bags of your favorite photographers so you can see just what exactly helps make their work so distinct.
"A couple of years ago I wanted to create a 'what’s in your bag' type website, which would cater for all sorts of people – students with their school bags, girls with their make-up bags, golfers with their golf bags etc etc," Mark told Photography Hot Spots in an interview about his fantastic idea. "I drafted it all out, then wasted a lot of time with a freelancer trying to build a mock up. I gave up on the project after a few months, then forgot about it."

With photographers ranging from commercial, wedding or fashion, or even sports, he hopes to build a broad collection of photographers all over the world, to show what gear is truly the most important for the work you do. "I’m not sure what brought me back to the idea a year later, but I decided this time to focus on just one genre - photographers," Mark said.
If you still wondered which professional photographers are still shooting film, you can browse them by film cameras such as Hasselblad, Leica or Rolleiflex,... or even film brands you like such as Kodak Portra 160 or Kodak Tri-X 400, ect.
