Chase Jarvis is a Seatle based commercial photograher. He writes a great blog found here that I've been reading for a few years. I think he has trademarked the phrase "Best Camera". He wrote a book and started telling people that the best camera is the one you have with you. I totally agreed and took those words to heart. A few years ago, I would hesitate photographing something because I didn't feel prepared. I didn't have my "good camera" or correct lens for what I wanted to capture. So I decide to throw all that obsessing aside and just use what I have with me, which is my iphone camera.
Below are some of my favorites...
The Canyons - Park City, Utah
I think what I like most about all my iphone pics are the memories that are attached. It was a blue bird day and you could clearly see all the beautiful trees and mountains. We had a great day skiing and ended up going to the Sundance screening premiere of The September Issue that night. It was one of the best days Danny and I spent together in Utah.

We had taken a trip to Nashville, TN for Danny to attend a conference. This was breakfast and Avery had gotten this hat the day before. Who doesn't need a red cowboy hat and a latte!

This image was taken while riding in the passenger seat of my truck. I looked in the side mirror and I loved how the sky was reflecting onto the rear window and into my mirror. I pulled out my phone and started snapping and this was the result. I love it!
These are just a few of my iphone pics that have strong memories attached and have great sentimental value. If you are inspired by something, pull out your phone and start shooting. I firmly believe that your best camera is the one you have with you.
