“The beauty of travel photography is that we must react to what’s around us, often on the spur of the moment and in unknown territory – and that, just by itself, can be thrilling.“
From people and landscapes to food and architecture, travel photographers have to do it all. And that’s what makes it such a competitive and interesting profession. Whether you’re working with magazines, tourist boards or online publications, the trick is to be mobile, flexible and thoroughly well-prepared. The right equipment is key to being able to capture a story under time constraints, delivering the commission on time in a way that’s ethical, creative and technically sound. From a single image that might make a double page spread or a front cover, to a series of shots that are linked thematically, this workshop will cover the main elements of a travel photographer’s work.
