Travel photography isn’t only what we see on Instagram — rosy filters and floppy hats on the Riviera. For photographers, the flip side of the wanderlust we hope to inspire in others is hard work and intimidation. Most locations have been photographed time and time again, so creating powerful travel photographs can be daunting. Ultimately, the strongest images will emerge from a photographer who not only possesses technical skill, but also has a deep understanding of why we travel and how each moment in a new destination gives us deeper stories to tell. In this class we’ll approach the thought processes behind travel photography.

Topics discussed include:

  • Exploring Visual Storytelling
  • Portraying the Essence of Place
  • Being an Observer vs. an Influencer
  • Cultural, Legal, and Ethical Considerations of Travel Photography
  • Inspiring Wanderlust
  • Staying Present As You Travel

This hands-on curriculum has been developed from Jordana Wright’s book The Enthusiast’s Guide to Travel Photography.
