10 Travel Photography Tips for great holiday photos

This article was written by (former editor of Digital Photographer magazine) and appears on Digital Photography School.

There’s no time like the present to hone your photographic skills to enable you to capture glorious travel photography fit for a gallery wall – or at least pride-of-place in your living room!

But the variation of subject matter and lighting conditions you’ll be greeted with while on holiday can be daunting to capture successfully, especially if you’re juggling quality time with your family against quality time with your digital camera!


1. Travel photography by its very nature is inspirational and exciting – but it’s easy to get carried away when you prepare what to take with you. Whilst it would be fantastic to take all of your kit abroad practicalities such as baggage allowance and insurance costs could mean you are better of hiring equipment on arrival or opting for lesser items. Ideally if you choose to take your own kit you’ll need to travel light: one body (unless you have the room for a spare), a wad of memory cards, a lightweight mini tripod or even the super flexible Gorillapod, portable storage unit, a pocket-size compact, a flash unit, a selection of lenses and a durable camera bag that distributes the weight evenly over your shoulders and protects against heat, cold, sand and moisture.

The Honey Moon Shack – Lesotho style!

Christel van Heerden on snapped this quirky photo while on one their road trips around Lesotho while on honeymoon at the end of September. It was quite appropriate for the occasion it would seem.

We’re happy to be able to report that Christel and her new husband had a “magical time in the Mountain Kingdom…a very special Honeymoon indeed!” Needless to say they stayed in far more “comfortable” lodgings than below.
