Photography for Travellers

Inspiration and information to help you make the most of your travel and photography

Practical Philosophies

The art of photography is not about the camera, it's about what you do with it. Change your attitude to change your photography.

Intimately Portrait

Intimately Portrait

When deciding to shoot your portraits with intense intimacy, the essential element is to get closer rather than shoot with a long lens. We want to fill the frame only with that person and the nuances that make them unique.
How To Be Creative

How To Be Creative

One of the greatest struggles we have as photographers is building our creative skills. For many of us it's hard to even define what creativity is. This feature is an attempt to give you a foundation to tackle creativity and some inspiration to build your own path.
Don't Jump

Don't Jump

A friend of mine was thinking of jumping ship recently, sending overboard his dreams of professional photography in favour of other challenges and loves. His experience gave me pause to consider why we take photos at all, and what can better motivate our creative work.

This magnificent monolith in the heart of Australia's Red Center is one of the world's most inspiring locations for a photographer to visit. Be warned however, it is also a subject that demands care and respect.

Careers and Ideas

There's more to photography than just the camera. Looking at the bigger picture is good for your development.

Belonging

Belonging

Working in a freelance career offers you an ocean of opportunity, but can equally erode your sense of belonging. Being part of something greater than yourself is not something you want to avoid as a freelancer, in fact it is essential to your success.

Inspiring destinations that offer something unique for photographers. I love sharing the beauty in this world, and sharing why I think you might want to see it too.

Anything But Now

Anything But Now

The problem with living the life of a photographer is that you so rarely get a chance to live in the now. Everything is past or present and very little in between.
Snow and Light in Norway

Snow and Light in Norway

Snow hides everything you don’t want to see. It silently arrives in the depth of night and fills in the gaps, wipes away the footsteps from yesterdays photographers and leaves you a clean slate to work with every morning. Snow clones out the messy bits better than any Photoshop session.
