Quality of a photograph is what drives people to buy those cameras. The other thing that is driving many camera purchases today is size of the camera.

However the downside to the gear is it's size and weight. By the end of the day I will collapse more from carrying all this gear for more than 12 hours. I will be covering the pre-game Fan Zone till the Trophy presentation.
For travel photography I cannot think of a better system than the Fujifilm X-E2. It is small and compact. I have great lenses to use with it and at the end of a long day as I traveled around The Big Island of Hawaii I wasn't tired and worn out. I was energized from the experience.

It reminded me there were some things I hadn’t known about them and I loved them even more for learning them.

Tips for Capturing the stories of your life
- Carry your camera with you–Since you cannot take photos if you don't have your camera be sure to buy a camera that you would want to lug around with you. Fuji X system cameras are my vote for just such a camera.
- Spend a lot of time just soaking in and listening to people. You don't need to be shooting every minute, but be sure you have some photos that you can then add the text to later that you can preserve these stories for you to have for years to come.
- Archive your photos. I put captions with every photo I take. Some are just a few words to help me remember.
- Display the stories. Find a format where you can display those stories.
- Maybe you just use something like Instagram where you post your photo and then put a caption which tells the short story.
- Blogging about your journey's might be another way to preserve those stories. My friend Bill Bangham is doing that on his blog here.
- Maybe create a book as I have done many times for trips, special events and family stories. Here is link to some of my books.
- Create videos with your voice over and pictures. Here are some of my packages.
Most important is take the time to listen to people and honor them by helping to remember their stories through pictures and their words.
