Study travel photography - from wherever you are in the world!

Travelling can perhaps challenge photographic skills perhaps more than anything else. This is because there is usually such a variety of photographic subjects and photo opportunities.

There are many considerations, for example:

  • What to take - too much equipment can be as much a problem as too little
  • Timing -Climatic conditions as well as events provide different opportunities in different places at different times (eg. Shadows that can be difficult to work with may be more of a problem at certain times of year -or day).
  • Legal Considerations: laws can vary: in some places, you may need official permission before you can take a photograph of something
