Other than coming home with great photos, traveling enriches your soul and helps you learn more about yourself, the others, and the world. A young Swiss couple shares this point of view, and they have even quit their jobs so they can travel Asia for six months. And it wasn’t for nothing. Sylvain Botter and Jenny Gehrig visited nine Asian countries and returned home with thousands of photos. They used them to create an epic hyperlapse called “Share Your Dream”, to share their adventure and inspire others to travel.
Travelling with equipment can be difficult. You don’t want to take so much that you’re overloaded with redundant equipment. But you also don’t want to leave vital kit at home when you need it. The bags into which you pack that gear is also important. Some things (like batteries) often can’t be checked, and need to be carried in hand luggage. Picking the right bags to maximise the space and minimise a back issues is a high priority.
In this video, photographer and filmmaker Jonathan J Scott shows us how he packs to travel overseas. He discusses the questions he asks himself in order to figure out what to take and, more importantly, what to leave at home.
When I first saw a selfie stick, I thought it was quite a strange way of capturing travel memories. And now I’ve discovered another quite unusual way of doing this – and a more expensive one. A London-based company Black Tomato offers you a service of hiring a professional drone photographer. He or she will capture your holiday memories and “take your travel experience to the new heights”.
Travelling to make photographs can be challenging. One of the big tasks is figuring out what to pack. You want to pack as little as possible, but you don’t want to leave vital gear at home. In this video, landscape photographer Thomas Heaton talks about the equipment he’s travelled with to spend time shooting landscapes in Hawaii.
Thomas is very clear. This isn’t “travel photography”, this is “travelling to do photography” and there’s a difference. It’s not the kind of kit you’d want to pack for a trek up a mountain. There just wouldn’t be enough room left in the bag for all the extra kit you’d want. But, it is a handy set of gear for travelling between wherever you’re staying and wherever you’re going to shoot.
I entered few categories in this years British Army Photographic comp. This is the second time I have entered the annual phot comp in my four years as being a phot.
I entered some of my stuff into these categories- Portrait, Sport /Adventure Training, ‘Soldiering’, Telling a story Portfolio (4 photographs), Portfolio (6 photographs), Best Online Image voted by the public and Online short form video (Social Media). You could enter twice into each category.
I’m not sure if you guys are up to date on who Clay Cook is, but you should be. Because as I speak he’s on his way to Africa to climb Kilimanjaro in aid of Charity, it’s a truly kick ass event! More details here.
So I’ve had this plan for a while now spanning from Lara Jade to Peter Hurley and more where I want to bring you these killer intimate articles where not only do we get to see a serious glimpse into what it’s taken these guys and gals to succeed but also how it’s impacted them into the journey they have today.
I recently returned from a seven day wilderness canoe trip to Algonquin Provincial Park with my family.
The purpose of the trip was half family vacation and half extended photoshoot for my portfolio at Stocksy United.
Backcountry canoeing with an eight and ten year old meant that we had to stick to a relatively moderate route – but paddling roughly 60 km in total with 10 km of portages also meant that we had to pack as light and compact as possible.
So when it came to photography gear, I could only bring the essentials – but what camera equipment do you really need to pack for seven days in the woods?
Commercial and adventure photographer Chase Jarvis has seen the world over many times, flying millions of miles throughout his career. It would make sense then, that he has a fair bit of knowledge about what it takes to efficiently travel as a photographer.
In his latest video, Chase does just that by sharing five of his most important tips on how to travel like a boss. [Read more…]
Originally based on Florida, and drawn together by a common love of photography, Victoria Yore and Terrence Drysdale took their first trip together in June 2015 to Europe, and have been hooked ever since.
Armed with little more than a couple of backpacks, some camera gear, and a one way ticket to Europe, the model & photographer duo set out on their journey to see, experience and photograph everything the world.
