The Art of Travel Photography & Story Telling

In my mind, travel photography is a broad genre covering so many bases. It’s an incorporation of landscape, environmental portrait, wildlife, street photography, and storytelling, all rolled into one. And because travel photographers are naturally wandering souls, we strive to document the world around us in its purest form. And, share stories! During this travel and storytelling seminar, we will discuss how to build a photograph with our composition while being sure we know our cameras settings, as well as understanding our location, and how to show stories within our travel photographs. Time to think outside of the box and get creative!
