Photography is the art of telling a powerful story, and if you are lucky enough to be a travel photographer, then it is your sole responsibility to ensure that you are doing justice to the subjects you are studying and the landscapes you are witnessing.
In order to become a well respected travel photographer, you have to have a lot of patience, a keen instinct and a sense of awareness and understanding across the numerous cultures you will come into contact with.
In my prime, a lot of my work involved travelling to different countries and living in remote places, which were teeming with culture, vibrant colours and interesting inhabitants. As a photographer, you have to be able to integrate into any culture and to be able to make yourself invisible, in the hopes of capturing a magical moment, or the perfect wildlife image. For me, the intimate moments are the most magical, and they matter the most.
Photography has been my passport to see the world and I would love nothing more than to encourage other photographers to take the leap and to truly get the most out of travel photography.
