The New York Times asked fashion photographer Mario Testino what camera he uses for personal shots when he travels.
NYT: What advice do you have for travelers who want to make sure they get the best pictures from their trip? Are good shots about having the right camera?
Mario Testino: You don’t need a fancy camera to be able to capture anything. The one on your phone is good enough; that’s what I use when I’m not working. Getting the right pictures is about opening your eyes to see what’s magical about a place. I just photographed the city from a window on this floor and saw all these buildings lit in a beautiful way, which is so New York. But the magic is different depending on where you are. It could be the people, the landscape, the animals or even the candle in the room. You just have to be curious, and you’ll find it.
