Carry a camera - Sam Furlong might seem like he's pointing out the obvious but he's not!

Sam Furlong

Sam Furlong is a photojournalist working out of the South West of England for the UK's national press. If you read any of the UK national newspapers you probably see Sam's work on a daily basis without realising it.

See www.sfotos.co.uk for more information.

Here's why he thinks you should carry a camera at all times:

"Sounds obvious doesn't it? Well many people don't. A lot of my favorite pictures have been shot while out and about. You never know what opportunity is going to present itself and you need to be able to capture it.

I generally have in my boot a body and a 70-200 2.8 zoom as a minimum (even if I'm just nipping out to do the shopping), if I am off out for the day or something then I have a small crumpler bag that will take a body, 70-200, 16-35, 1.4 and 2x teleconvertors and a hotshoe flashgun and that comes along with me, most of the time it stays in the car but now and then it proves useful.  Like when I captured this unique shot."
