A Photographer's Guide To Taking Great Travel Photos
The best travel photos show off more than just the destination—they also have plenty of personality. Bring a change of outfits that you feel most confident and natural in, and try to have fun with it.
It’s important to keep the lines of communication open between the person taking the photos and the person being photographed. After all, the photographer is another set of eyes and should be directing the shoot at all times. Ultimately, if you’re comfortable with your photographer (and vice versa), it’ll come through the photos.
Of course, if you’d rather leave the photo-taking to the pros, there are a growing number of vacation travel photographers available to book these days, especially in popular cities from Hong Kong like Phuket. Simply look up the destination you’re travelling to and check out their portfolios to see whether their style is what you have in mind.
Contact the photographer to make sure you feel comfortable with each other, and discuss your ideas for the shoot. Stay in close contact for last-minute changes due to the weather, and when the shoot date arrives, remember to have fun.
