Photography Destinations Holidays with a Guide
Are you having difficulty in taking fantastic photos whilst on holidays? Don’t be alarmed as there is a solution! Booking a professional photographer as a guide on your next holiday can be a great asset.
For one thing, such tours employ staff who understand a region exceptionally well. They know where to find photo worthy scenes. Guides can advise on lighting and position. Some even made their living from photography before branching into tourism.
One such tour could take you on an African safari, specifically Namibia, Tanzania or Botswana. Botswana guides offer camping tours, canoe fishing, long walks and drives with numerous opportunities to see and take pictures of wildlife. Develop techniques for framing lions, elephants and giraffes within the square box of your view to create an image outside of the box. Watch your skills improve with some guidance.
Get ready for travel photography opportunity during a canoe trip in Botswana or while driving or walking in search of big game ready to pose. Your guides will help you to catch elephants, giraffes or lions in the right light. There is even the option to bring your family so you can all learn.
In Tanzania you will meet the colorful and friendly Maasai. They are surrounded by beautiful sights such as the relatively quiet Tarangire National Park, the Serengeti, and Ngorongoro Crater. Camp, walk, view exotic animals from a distance. Just be ready: opportunities will appear around every corner.
Though perhaps not as exotic in the minds of westerners, Europe still plays host to numerous scenic locations worthy of being preserved in color print. Tour parts of southern France with a professional photographer to compose photos of Camarque, with its wild white horses. Catch the spray of Mediterranean water around their hooves to invoke activity from still life. Visit the Gironde fishing huts on stilts, wooden boats in the estuary, and explore the play between shades of color and quality of light.
Venice inspires romance, art and photography. Snap images of Rialto Bridge and the Bridge of Sighs. Immortalize gondolas and their boatmen working up and down the canals. For a change of setting pack lenses and tripod for a trip to Iceland to experience ice flows, waterfalls and beaches entirely made from black ash. Light a camp fire and train your developing eye on the fading light to tease out unexpected and atmospheric shapes. Move to a different continent entirely, delving into the history and life of China, from cities to rice fields to temples along rivers that roll calmly between mountains.
Of course, Australia and New Zealand offer unique creative palettes to the photographer. Australia is a vast landscape unique in all the world with many types of wildlife that live nowhere else. There is a majesty in the empty harshness that inspires. New Zealand of course was made famous by the Lord Of The Rings movies and is wild and rugged; it is approximately the same size as the United Kingdom in land area, yet has a population of only 4 million. Solitude can be easily found – a rare pleasure in today’s busy world – and a professional guide can take you to places and people that you would struggle to find alone.
Add a further educational element to your holiday. Since experts travel along side you, they can share their expertise with digital photography. This includes how to make the most of your computer software to produce great work, whether you are a beginner or an expert.
