Living on the road sounds scary for some, while others see it as a dream come true. Photographer Christian Schaffer falls into the second group and she’s been traveling for years now, living in a van. In this video, she takes you on a tour of her home on wheels, which may be small, but it has everything a home needs to have.
Travel and landscape photography has always been popular, but since everybody now has a camera in their pocket and many are also choosing to take things further with a DSLR or mirrorless camera, it’s really taken off. Finding information on travel or landscape photography isn’t exactly difficult, but Taylor Jackson has combined all his knowledge into this three-hour “Ultimate” travel and landscape tutorial video.
The Upper Antelope Canyon Photo Tours, one of the most popular and controversial Photo Tours in the United States, will be discontinued from 2020 and beyond, according to the Navajo Nation Parks and Recreation organization.
Antelope Canyon is one of the most renowned slot canyons in the US southwest, famous for the light beams that are created in the canyon when the sun is high on the sky during the summer months. It became increasingly popular in recent years after being the location where the most expensive photograph ever sold (for 6.5 million) was taken, and especially with the rise in social media.
If you travel a lot to shoot photos or video, then there will likely be a lot of things you keep in your bags to make your life a little easier. If you’re planning to make a trip to shoot something, you might not have thought things through quite as well as you think you have. In this video, the folks at NOMO Films show us eleven essential items that they take with them on their travels.
The video’s called “11 filmmaking travel items”, but they actually cover 15(ish). So, we’re goin’ with that. 15 items. There are a lot of great useful tips for things to pack here.
Travelling with gear can be a major pain. Usually, I tend to travel with gear to cover events, so I have to pack a lot of it. But when I’m just travelling for myself, perhaps to visit friends, I generally pack pretty light with my camera gear. It’s easy to overpack, though, if you’re not careful. We often want to take all the gear we own, “just in case”.
In this video, Robby Serrini at TravelClast shows us how he travels with camera gear as a professional travel writer, and the extra items he takes with him to help make his life a little easier while he’s away.
Planning a photo trip to Germany? After three years of living in Germany and visiting countless cities in the country, I have a handful of tips for you. No, they are not about the best shooting locations and what photographic gear to pack. They are more of a practical nature.
Recently I took my first ever photography trip to California. My plan was to hit up Mt Shasta, Lassen Volcanic NP, and Lake Tahoe. I wanted to share some of the things I did right as well as some of the things I did wrong.
Lowepro has announced the new Photo Active collection of backpacks. There are two, for now; the Photo Active BP 200 and the Photo Active BP 300. They’re designed for adventure photographers, whether that be for a weekend hike or trotting around the globe.
The two new bags are designed specifically with travel in mind. They’re built with ripstop nylon and abrasion resistant materials for maximum durability, with a split interior, offering separate areas for camera gear, a laptop, drones, clothes, and hydration reservoirs.
While most commercial photographers know about copyright laws and the use of a model for their images, it seems the answer isn’t so clear when it comes to Travel Photography. So if you’re travelling the world with your camera, what laws apply – for you and for your subject?
You might need to consider what it means… taking photos of people in a foreign country, photos that you may one day print, sell or publish.
With the recent polemics surrounding a certain image that won a photography competition this week, I feel like we need to talk about travel photography. About people photography, in our case. And to set up boundaries as to what’s acceptable in both cases. Honestly, in my opinion, it’s a matter of common sense – but it seems that’s not enough. We still witness some shocking scenes in the world of travel photography these days.
Let me be clear: My goal isn’t to attack or criticise any specific, or specific group, of photographers. I don’t know these people. I’ve never met them. But the whole circus that events such as these have created is, in my book, very disturbing, which is why I feel it’s important to discuss the topic in general.
