"I believe that the chief value of photography as a means of communication depends entirely on the ability of the camera to arrest life instantly. It thrills me to speculate how the invention of photography has contributed to the speeding up of human reflexes. The rapidly working camera has sharpened man’s capacity to observe and observe rapidly; it has taught many of us to use our minds to classify visual phenomena in an instant of time; to relate our own attitude to that of the person in front of the camera in a split second.

I can tell you, over the years I have made many mistakes and paid the price and if I was to give a few simple tips to the budding travel photographer / photojournalist at the top of the list of my Not To Dos .. you would find written in bold capitals, Do Not Be – Unprepared.Preparation comes in all forms and I would say it all starts with your Kit.
