Photography Course

Taking travel photographs is rewarding on many levels. Among the things I love about it is that it is a great excuse to meet people, it makes me a better observer and it allows me to share my experiences with others.

Whatever your reasons for taking photos are, I hope that this resource is useful and that it not only makes you a better photographer, but that you get even more joy from your travels.
