Travellers Taking Photographs – Episode 109 of The Thoughtful Travel Podcast

I have owned a “proper” DSLR camera since 2006. It was only a few weeks ago – yes, 2018 – that I finally started to learn how to use it properly! (Although even using it on auto has snagged me a few decent shots over the years … thank goodness).

It’s something common to many travellers, I think, that we see so many incredible scenes and we want to capture them in great photos – and this sentiment is basically what brought around this episode of the podcast.

Do you have a “real” camera? And do you know how to use it? Let me know in the comments down below!

Travellers Taking Photographs

When you travel, you take pictures.

When you travel a lot, you take lots of pictures, and you start to want them to be good pictures!

That’s one reason why Episode 109 of The Thoughtful Travel Podcast features three travel-lovers who’ve become interested in photography. First up, I chat with Jim Jones who got his first DSLR camera when he took a big trip through Europe by train – and has gone from strength to strength since.

Next I chat with Erin Gustafson who, with an art background, has developed a beautiful eye for photography on her travels and we chat about some of what she’s learnt and some of the amazing pictures she takes, especially in her current home of Copenhagen.

FInally I talk with Lucas Peters who considered himself largely only a writer until a guidebook publisher wanted him to take photos too – and that’s now become something he’s rather talented at! He also has some great tips for travellers taking their good cameras with them … particularly in the desert!
