These little tidbits will save a lot of headaches if you travel with your camera

As you might imagine, traveling with your camera gear adds a layer of complexity to any plans you may have.

Discover the ancient cities along the Adriatic Coast aboard a chartered yacht. Unlike traditional cruises, we’ll be aboard a 36-passenger motor yacht and spend the nights in ports of call. That means we’ll be able to explore each city on our itinerary during the peak times for photography, including sunset and twilight. Along the way, you’ll get expert photographic instruction, learn mobile workflow, and discover creative approaches to travel photography!

Here’s another photograph from my recent travel photography workshop in London. The Albert memorial stands in tribute to Queen Victoria’s late prince consort. On this unusually cloudless afternoon in London, we waited until early evening to photograph the memorial and avoid harsh shadows.
