The Travel Photo Essay workshop teaches the necessary techniques to create professional travel stories, using images that go far beyond the “I was there” photographs we often associate with this genre. From establishing shots to the environmental portrait, this workshop focuses on the techniques and concepts used to build dynamic travel photo essays incorporating various photographic categories from portrait and food to landscape and wildlife. Successful travel photographers have more photographic monikers than perhaps any other genre. Covering issues such as on location lighting, writing, workflow, and the travel photography market, award-winning photographer Mark Edward Harris explains how to marry photos with words and how to tell a cohesive story through a series of photographs.
A signed copy of his latest book, The Travel Photo Essay: Describing A Journey Through Images, is included for each member of the class.
