WHERE DO YOU WANT TO GO?

The first step in getting started with travel photography is to decide where to go. Close your eyes. Where does your imagination wander off to? Peruse a travel publication. What stands out to you? Scroll through your Instagram feed. Which images churn your inner desire to book a trip there? For me, my mind always drifted to Italy (then came Napa Valley, Hawaii, Ireland and so forth). Wherever your destination is, start doing your research in that area. Even though you may want to go everywhere at once (a common mistake every new traveler makes), start with one specific country and one region. You will end up missing more things and opportunities when you try to see too many things all at once. Narrowing your focus to one particular location will help make your trip more meaningful, enriching and rewarding.
