So you want to be a Travel Photographer! - Part 1

" Wow! You guys have the best job in the world!!!" We've heard this line so many times over the years and are constantly asked "what does it take to become a Travel Photographer. Anybody that maintains a living from Travel Photography will tell you that it probably is one of the best jobs in the world but like any other business where you are self employed there's the business side of the fun and Travel Photography is certainly no exception. We'll go a little more into depth about that later.

So what is professional travel photography?

"Travel photography is a subcategory of photography involving the documentation of an area's landscape, people, cultures, customs and history. The Photographic Society of America defines a travel photo as an image that 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."
