See. Smile. Snap. Repeat; the best cameras and photography techniques to capture your journey 'round the globe.
There is so much to do and see in Calgary, Alberta. As someone who currently lives in Calgary but was not born here, I have such strong feelings for this amazing city. Between all the scenic viewpoints of the city, the parks and just the atmosphere in general, there's something to see for everybody.
Early December 2019, my parents are getting ready to leave on a dirt biking trip with some friends in Southern California. My family had been planning this trip for months. But I wasn't invited. Not because they didn't want me there... I think... Rather, this was the first year I was without a dirt bike, as I had just recently sold it in exchange for a larger street-legal motorcycle. In addition to that, I no longer lived at home, so I wasn't always automatically included in trips with the family. Due to these factors, I was understandably told to sit this one out. Which was a tad disappointing for me...
Earth is beautiful and there is no doubt about that, wouldn't you agree? We all know it, we have all seen beautiful photographs from amazing places from all over the world. But how often do we stop and think about just how special this planet is that we call home? When was the last time you went for a walk out in nature and really soaked it all in? Ignoring all the menial things going on in your life and just focusing on what surrounded you at that exact moment? Perhaps it has been a while, I know it has for me.
Travelers these days no longer have to bring maps or compasses to take them to their destination. They can even ditch their bulky cameras in favor of a more compact gadget that has multiple functions to it. Yes, you got it right! We are talking about smartphones, one of the best technologies that we are currently enjoying today.
All it starts off with is a ticket purchase to Greece... Do you wish to visit Greece? If you allow yourself to come to Greece, I can safely promise you this; the best part is arriving at the airport knowing that the staff at the airport are here to help.
I’m either going to get mugged here or invited to dinner, I thought as the guy grabbed my arm and pulled me down the narrow market alley. It turned out to be neither, but his intentions were friendly.
Last time I spoke about 5 Best Travel Photography Tips. Of course, there are many more tips that can be given. Let's take a look at 5 more of them.
This collage is from my first trip overseas. I was 23, just got my passport and was ready to fill it with adventures. I didn’t have a professional camera at the time, so I download a photo editing app, Cymera, to create my own postcards. Being a fan of the writer, Heinrich Heine, my first stop had to be his birthplace, Düsseldorf, Germany. Located in West Germany, this riverside town instantly stole my heart. It was like a dream being there; being face to face with things I’ve only seen in books. I was blown away with the modern architecture hidden within a forest. This city has a perfect balance of a high tech big city with an old-world charm that you would expect in any other historic city. Being there reminded me of all the settings and poems in Heine’s books. Being an opera singer, I couldn’t help but hum songs of other Düsseldorf natives. Before flying out, I did a little research on things I shouldn’t miss.
US 23 is one of the prettiest stretches of highway in the country, with most of it hugging Lake Huron on one side and the forest on the other.
“A sense of wonder, a sense of light, a sense of humility in this life.” As one travels across the oceans, rivers, countries, and mountains… I’m always taken back to the magical state that lies beneath the blue, where another world unfamiliar to me is living a life that rings true.
Set during golden hour, I love the British countryside for these moments. For this photo to mean something, we’ve got to back up around two or three hours before.
It's late June 2018. I'm four weeks into a six-week adventure through Israel, Portugal, and Croatia. I was based in Lisbon, Portugal at the time, and that's where I met up with a buddy-from-way-back, Dan.
