Without question the ability to travel provides any photography hobbyist an enormous opportunity to capture the essence of humanity. The color, texture and depth of experience is amplified by the exchange of camera and photographer in places unknown.
Photographer Chase Jarvis once wrote that the best camera to have is the one you have with you. While my day-to-day tasks as Head of School range in complexity and diversity, I have been able to find that if I can pause and enjoy a particular moment, the opportunity to capture the essence of my subject emerges through photographs. As an avid camera collector I have been fortunate to add over 60 vintage cameras to my personal collection. My every day tools are the Leica M6, Leica X, Polaroid SX-70 and my iPhone 6.
When I am disciplined enough to have my Leica with me, I can always rely on the increasingly better option my iPhone affords me.
