My love of street photography and passion for travel have finally come together with my latest book, “Travel & Street Photography: From Snapshots to Great Shots.” All photographers, including me, make their fair share of mistakes along the way and this book is a culmination of everything I've learned from those mistakes. My objective: Create an essential guide for travel photography and expand upon the basics of my most recent eBook on Street Photography, “Street Photography: A Guide to Finding and Capturing Authentic Portraits and Streetscapes.”
It's my hope that the book speaks to amateurs and serious hobbyists alike by providing key building blocks and great tips to hone your travel and street photography skills. Whenever I read a book my number one hope is to walk away with a new idea or different perspective on how to do things. I like a book that makes me say, “Hmmm, I would have never thought about that!” I hope I have achieved that in writing this book for you. It is written in a practical manner melding tips and recommendations from the early stages of planning, traveling to your destination, and how to get great images on location.
We cover a lot of ground in this book including:
- My favorite camera kits for street and travel photography
- Packing and planning guides
- Essential travel accessories
- Trip planning tools and tips
- Setting goals and getting the shots
- Useful checklists
- Domestic and international travel
- Considerations for urban and rural destinations
- In depth coverage of the legal issues surrounding street photography
I am really proud of this book because I share tons of truly practical advice that I have gathered from my own travel and experience as a street photographer. I hope you enjoy it!
