Photographing Wild Bears of Alaska at Tuxedni Bay

When the plane left, I’ll admit, there was a sense of aloneness that fell over us. As the buzz of the Bush Hawk faded slowly away, we were indeed isolated. I can’t speak for everyone individually but here, on the north bank of Tuxedni Bay, this is about as far as I’ve ever been from civilization.

Planning and Managing a Photography Trip to India

I traveled to India for a month in January 2020 to extend my global The People street-studio series to south Asia. India is one of the great, image-rich travel photography destinations, and it appears to be on many photographers' travel photography wishlist. So, I thought I’d share how I planned and managed the trip.

Shooting Daguerreotypes of California Redwoods

This trip has been waiting in the wings ever since I made my first successful daguerreotype in the redwoods two years ago. I actually planned on going as early as August this year, but one project after another kept getting in the way, and for months I kept pushing it back by a couple of weeks.

Taking a Photo Trip to Antarctica

When I found out I had the opportunity to travel to Antarctica, I couldn't quite believe it. I should really start this story by thanking my mother: she's had the travel bug her entire life, and eventually created a career for herself selling her experiences and knowledge. The same bug has allowed me to see the world from a very young age, and I learned quite quickly how much of an impact travel can have on your perspective on life, among other things.

Photographing Hang Son Doong, the World’s Largest Cave, by Gregg Jaden

In 2009, I was involved in a near fatal car crash when an oncoming car made an unsafe left turn in front of my vehicle, nearly killing me. This life changing incident was a blessing. It forced me to slow down and really assess how I was living and experiencing my life. This near-death experience revealed to me the need to be creative on a much higher level and really contribute to this planet.

This Photographer Travelled Across New Zealand with a Gandalf Costume

What better way to explore the far reaches of New Zealand ... uhh, I mean Middle Earth... than with Tolkien's Gandalf as your guide?

I Photographed the Wonders of North America on a 15,000 Mile Trip

Back in September 2016, I decided to fulfill my dream of traveling and photographing North America. Without any set itinerary, I hit the road and ended up driving and flying more than 24,000km (~15,000mi), experiencing some of the most amazing scenery and adventures.

Shooting Street Photos to Improve as Wedding Photographers

In 2013, 8 wedding photographers, scattered around the UK, decided to get together and take an October trip to Paris. We were to live together for a few days, wander the streets and dedicate each day to street photography. In the evening we would review and critique each others work.

The Magic of a Student Astronomy Camp, Captured with the Sony a7S

The team at Uncage the Soul Productions followed 23 high school students around as they spent a week at the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry’s Astronomy Camp.

Photographer Embarks on 40,000km Bike Trek Around the World with His Camera

Yesterday, our own Alan Steadman shared some advice. He told you to go out and explore, to travel, to see the world and meet new people so that those experiences could inform the stories you tell when you're working behind the camera.

Well, if you were looking for a shining example to go with those words, look no further than photographer, writer and cyclist Rob Lutter, then man who is currently 15,000km (about 9,300 miles) into a 40,000km (about 25,000 miles) photographic journey around the world.

Photog Sets Out to Document US National Parks With Her Pinhole Camera

For most photographers, names like "Yosemite" and "Yellowstone" likely conjure impeccably detailed images in the Ansel Adams tradition. San Francisco photographer Ashley Erin Somers, however, thinks there's something to be said for a more low-fi aesthetic.

She's started a project to photograph some of the biggest attractions in the National Park system with a homemade pinhole camera, with the end goal being to produce a fine-art photography book documenting her work.

24-Year-Old Hitchhikes From Norway to Lebanon with a Backpack and a DSLR

He snapped photographs along the way, creating a beautiful travel photography diary documenting the trip.
