The Best Camera


There are many times, when as a professional photographer, I am asked which is the best camera to use? Honestly? It is the one you have with you.

Yes this sounds glib, but here's the point. I regularly carry one and often two cameras around my neck. Yet when taking the faithful hound for a walk on a stormy morning, I opted to leave them at home. And you guessed it ...

So from a humble mobile phone I grabbed this shot. It was the best camera.
