In Tips from a Pro: Travel Photography, author and photographer Nicole Young teaches you how to create beautiful travel photographs and experiences to bring home. She starts by covering the necessary gear and accessories to include when packing light and why you might want to rent gear and purchase travel insurance. She then discusses the importance of doing your research at home — knowing what you want to shoot, where you want to go and when before you land is key to getting the photographs you want while on your trip. Finally, she shares her tips and tricks for shooting with a local perspective — be a traveler, not a tourist — and reminds photographers of the wide range of subjects and situations they need to be prepared to encounter and photograph, including those expected and unexpected.
