Travel Photography Tips & Tricks

Hi Gang: If you missed “The Grid” this week, our topic was travel photography, and I showed image, and talked tips and tricks based on my trip last week to London and Paris. Lots of helpful little nuggets, and we answered lots of questions from viewers. If you’ve got a sec, here’s the episode (below):

In case you missed it â” I posted my favorite images from the trip over at (along with the story and more tips there, too). There’s that link:

Lastly, if you’ve got a sec, I was featured this over at shotkit with a look at my photo gear loadouts for the three main types of photography I do. I break it all down over at their site (here’s the link):

Hope you all have an awesome weekend, and we’ll see ya back here on Monday (by the way, I think I’m going to have some fun news Monday, so make sure you check back).



  1. Fantastic show guys. As a New Zealand travel photographer living in London I completely understand how you feel about the limitations. In New Zealand I grew up having very little (if any) restrictions on any sort of photography. Sometimes it is very hard to adjust. But could you imagine a London where it was a free for all in there with everyone taking photos of everything? I could imagine these spaces would get exploited very quickly.

    Perhaps seeking a permit to photograph the internals of some of these buildings could be possible? I will have a look into it over the coming days and post an article to my site on the success (or failure) of my effort.

  2. The hdr look is a matter of personal taste, of course, but I found the colors in the Opera House to be particularly unnatural. Would a less saturated look work? Or would that look too bland?

  3. Scott:

    Sometime ago you posted a tutorial on how you got white backgrounds on some travel shots … to Italy, I think. I’ve tried searching for it but failed. Could you please point in the right direction.
