Travel Photography


Is there a market for travel and tourism photography? And does anyone have any pointers for someone breaking into the biz? Thanks.

  Yes there is. Travel magazines, stock photos, other editorial, postcards. It also helps to be a writer with travel photos magazines. Some auto ads are landscape/scenic photos with a car superimposed over it.

  Good point, Gregory. If you are there to shoot the photos, why not write up your trip, using other travel articles as a guide? Certain travel magazines show truly bad photography - shots taken in strong midday light, silly off-kilter horizons, people stuffing their faces. Anyone on this site can do a lot better. I'v never known National Geographic Travel to publish junk photos.

  It's good for the budget to send one person instead of two.
