SNAPSHOT OR PUBLICATION ? -- Matt Brading: “Travel photography is perhaps one of the most misunderstood fields of professional photography. For most photographers, the sole criteria for shooting travel images is for them to be traveling, but the truth of the matter is very different. The added bonus of focussing on the visitor experience is that as soon as ‘people ‘ are included, travel photography publishers are likely to need current images showing up to date hairstyles & fashions. So these are the shots that are always in demand. The destination might be a 2000 years old landmark, but the people viewing it will need to be contemporary.

Their manner, dress, and activities reveal as much about a place as its architecture and topography.” http://intelligenttravel.nationalgeographic.com/2011/09/26/travel-photography-tips-photographing-strangers/
