Travel photography is a form of photo expression that can take just about any form. Uniquely personal and exceptionally freeform, travel photographs can focus on just about any subject matter – anything from majestic landscapes, to sunsets abroad, to local festivals, to heart-stoppingly interesting people that call a given location home.
Truly excellent travel photography takes the viewer on a journey and brings them a little taste of a new experience in a unique way. Travel photographers should demonstrate an impeccable instinct for visual storytelling combined with an understanding of ideal photographic timing. Show us your best serendipitous moments from your time spent on the go.
