36 Hours Till Take off

There's still so much to do in preparation for my flight Wednesday. I feel relaxed. Though the phone's ringing off the hook and my luggage is still in the early stages of completion. I have one conference call after another and my staff smile and stare as I move quickly between the kitchen and living room, carrying a sandwich in one hand and a phone in the other, I call it multitasking.

Finishing my conference calls I move throughout the house assembling the necessary technical accoutrement for my trip: Headphones, audio equipment, film, cameras, the list goes on.

The life of a photographer is filled with abundant pieces of equipment, large bags and only two overhead options.

I look forward to taking off towards a Latin country I've never been to, a sliver of land between the Pacific Ocean and the Andes-The Republic of Chile.
