Erik Johansson is a Swedish photographer and image creator currently based in Prague, Czech Republic. He specializes in surreal photography, photo manipulation, and montages. Let’s have a look at what’s in his bag.
“To me, photography is basically about collecting materials for the ideas I want to bring to life.” – Erik Johansson
Hasselblad H6D-50c. It’s not always the fastest or lightest camera but when used in the right way it delivers amazing quality. Not only in terms of resolution and details but also the way it captures the colours.
Profoto B1X and Pro7b. I seldom shoot in a studio, unless it’s smaller objects or props. I rather bring light on location when the sun isn’t out. To me it’s really important that light has a purpose, why is it there? I never just throw in some light for the look unless it makes sense.
Fstop Tilopa, great bag for photo trips and I can walk with it for a long time fully packed without it being too painful. For city trips I usually take a smaller bag.
Really Right Stuff Tripods, great quality and stability.
