InMyBag: A Website for Showing Off Your Gear and Exacerbating Your G.A.S.

‘What’s in Your Bag’ posts are popular on major photography websites. National Geographic‘s PROOF blog even does a unique version where they focus on those things that have meaning, but aren’t necessarily gear.

But what about the rest of us? If you’re not expecting a call from Nat Geo asking you to reveal the contents of your camera bag any time soon, the website InMyBag gives you a chance to share that with the world and pique your gear envy at the same time.

The point of the site is twofold: let people share their gear and do a little bit of self promotion while they’re at it.

From the site’s About page:

Submissions are open to anyone with an enthusiasm for photography, professional or amateur and we have categories for DSLR, Lighting, Mirrorless, Film, Video, Leica, Vintage, GoPro, Phone based photography and those with minimalist kit.

We’re aiming to build an entertaining, inspiring, educational and a fascinating insight into photography.

Of course, the potential is there for the site to devolve into all self-promotion and braggadocio, but as long as you don’t take it (or yourself) too seriously, it can actually be a fun site to browse every once in a while when you want to see what your fellow photogs are working with.

Already big names like Joey L, Sam Hurd and Joel Grimes have taken to the site to share their gear. To browse for yourself, of maybe submit a picture of your gear along with some shameless self-promotion, check out InMyBag by clicking here.
