7 Travel Photography Tips Photographers Should Follow

We are excited to share the following tips by ViewBug community member timpryce.

1. “Travel insurance”
If you can’t afford travel insurance, you can’t afford to travel!
2. “Camera bag”
Buy the best quality camera bag you can afford and always carry it with you.

3. “Flash cards, back-up storage and batteries”
4. “Only take the camera gear you really need”

5. “Do your own research”
6. “Do the opposite of everyone else”
Find out when it’s the “best time” to visit and go at a different time instead.

7. “Leave the camera in the bag”
Sounds ironic, but often we are so focused on taking pictures that we don’t stop and actually appreciate the beauty around us.

“I Rode A Bike Down The Blue Mountain In Jamaica And Took These Infrared Photos”

Earlier this year I traveled to Jamaica with my infrared camera. I drove from Montego Bay to Blue Mountain where coffee and, most likely, a lot of Ganja grows.
There was a bike tour down the Blue Mountain, so I jumped on and photographed the entire mountain on the way down. Here are some pictures of my trip.

The Power of Imagination | Juliette Jourdain

Juliette Jourdain is a young French photographer based in Paris. After three years of photo studies at l’EFET, she started a career as an independent professional. Specialising in the art of the portrait, her portfolio subsequently testified to her great aptitude for staging. In a meticulously arranged studio set, her models give her their all in quirky and sophisticated poses. Her inspirations are numerous (fashion photography, cinema, painting) but are above all derived from drawing, which she enjoys and has become used to using her imagination.

Polar Bears by Ole Jørgen Liodden

Few photographers know polar bears like Ole Jørgen Liodden. On a detour to the more temperate climes of the UK, he tells Keith Wilson about his award-winning images, his 3D printing antics and the location of Nikon’s ‘deepest’ lens…

The Future Is Mirrorless
Like many Nikon Pros, Ole is intrigued by the new Z-Series cameras and lenses and feels it is only a matter of time before he takes the plunge and invests in one…
When more lenses are added to the Z series, will using the mirrorless system become more tempting for you?
Yes. I have the same feeling now as when I moved from film to digital in 2003. Of course, you can use an adapter, but I prefer to use the lenses that are made for the camera. It’s an issue for both Nikon and Canon, they have actually announced the future is mirrorless, and yes some of the users will start to use the mirrorless cameras.
For me, I am neutral as a photographer, but over the years I have had strong feelings and good experiences with Nikon, but there are no reasons for change right now.
