Travel Photography

copyright 2008 Scott Wahlen

Travel writers are very often photographers as well. Regardless of whether you are new to the idea of taking your own photos–or just looking to upgrade your equipment, we have some great resources for you here. In addition to sites that sell cameras and tripods, you’ll also find a collection of links that offer tips you can use for taking great photos on the road…

American Society of Media Photographers (ASMP) - Model & property release information and more.

dpreview - If it’s technical, chances are good that it is covered somewhere on this wonderful photography site. There is a buying guide section if you are looking for gear, a blog  and multiple forums where you can read and learn.

Matador Network/Travel Photography - podcasts, interviews, Flickr groups and travel photography contests are just the tip of the iceberg here. Learn about things such as how to photograph children or how to photograph a landmark. There’s plenty of reading here.
