Join us for a talk given by two professional Travel photographers. Hear their thoughts about Travel Photography from an insider’s perspective and examine their styles and approach to their work.
Travel photography is a subcategory of photography involving the documentation of an area’s landscape, people, architecture, cultures, customs and history. Good travel photography expresses the feeling of a time and place, portrays a land, its people, or a culture in its natural state, and has no geographical limitations. The pinnacle of professional travel photography can be found in the National Geographic magazine. Professional Travel photographers need to have a diverse range of photography skills from Portraiture to Landscape, Still Life, Architecture and Street Photography.
