The Von Camera Bag

When Goyard in Paris wouldn't fix the Goyard Aplin backpack I had bought as travel bag for cameras (whihc is different from a walkabout bag for daily use), I decided to make my own bags. Luxury used to mean that you got the best artisans can make, using best possible materials, based on many years of experience, resulting in a product that can ultimately last for generations.

With Italian designer  Matteo Perin, I decided to make some bags for myself, using the bestartisans and the best materials available. I wanted - as I always do - something that works.

We ended up with The Von Camera Bag that is specified to my exact needs, which is a travel camera bag that holds 4-6 lenses and 2-4 Leica M bodies, with space for battery charger, extra batteries, a couple of hard drives, cables, card readers, filters and a few other things. It is large enough to fit a 32" folded reflector (which happens to be the same size as a 15" labtop) along one side of the bag, next to an orange Billingham Hadley Pro insert (which holds four lenses and 2-4 Leica M bodies). The material is alligator, which makes it quite exclusive (and about eight times more expensive than normal leather).

The Von Messenger Mini Bag

The bag for using when you don't want to carry a bag.

This is a photographer's walkabout bag and the only bag I will walk with throughout the day. I always have my camera across the chest, so the Von Messenger Mini bag holds (no camera but only) extra battery, phone, en extra lens, gloves, scarf, filters, water and the small things one would else have to have in pockets. Also handy for holding small things one buy on the way so one can keep both hands free to operate the camera.

For transportation from the car to a care, or similar, the bag holds a camera and two lenses, and even a 15" MacBook Pro upright (with the flap is open).

The Von Messenger is designed to fold to the body so it isn't tiring to carry, even for a whole day. It's a very compact bag (7.50 x 24W x 28H cm). The strap is soft leather, wide and without any shoulder pad; the adjustment sits on the back end of the bag while the front end of the shoulder strap is sewn tot he bag. Simple and comfortable, and very discrete.

"The Von 24hr Jetset Bag"

Next project with Matteo Perin was a 24hr Jetset Bag. It's meant to be a travel bag for a short 24-hour travel, but in my life it takes the place of my document bag. I've used an orange leather-version of the Louis Vuitton Porte-Document Voyage for years (from the Fall/Winter 2011 collection), but it's always been packed to the max with papers, computers, pens, headphones, water and all the small things you need in your carry-on. So I decided to go larger with this bag.

The VonBack backpack

We've also been working on at VonBack and have made several prototypes. I still believe a backpack would be an ideal camera bag for travel. I like to carry my bags by the handle, it's old-fashioned. But I rely on trolleys, which many airports have. But there is not a single American airport that offer trolleys anymore (inside the airport, after security), which mean you have to find other ways to carry things. Here are some of the VonBack prototypes.

Bag sizes explained

When you get into luxory bags, they are often described with PM, MM or GM as names for sizes. I can never remember them myself, as I don't speak French, but here they are:


PM - Meitite Modele = S - Small model.

MM - Moyen Modele = M - Medium model.

GM - Grand Modele = L - Large model.
