I have used a variety of quality kit during my time as a photographer. I am quite used to carrying around hefty backpacks filled with kit. I always carry around my Fuji X100s as the closest thing to a point and shoot that i’m comfortable with.
So you can imagine my utter dismay when i ended up at the peak of a mountain with nothing but my phone. (I’m screaming inside just remembering the horror). The views were some of the most spectacular that i have ever seen. Glorious white peaks surrounding me like i was standing among iced cupcakes.
This made me think of a quote that i have often reiterated to others, but never actually considered how important it is.
The best camera is the one that’s with you. – Chase Jarvis
And it turns out… its true.
