A New Bag – Lowepro m-Trekker BP 150 Camera Backpack Review

I’ve said this before and will no doubt say it again, for a photographer, finding the right camera bag that caters for as many variations of the equipment you own as well as the sort of assignments you take, is a long and sub-optimal process which often ends in disappointment,

Billingham Hadley Small Pro Review – The Ideal ‘Street’ Bag

As I’ve said before, more than once, I’m a big fan of the wonderful camera bags made by M. Billingham & Co here in the West Midlands not far from where I live.  Their bags are not only good looking and stylish they are incredibly durable and long lasting.  My
