Obviously these photo reated offers will appeal to anyone interested in photography, not just travel photographers. Two offers I love are Animoto and PhotoTraining4U. Both come with my own personal recommendation. I use both with huge enthusiasm.
I love 'PhotoTraining4U' with Mark Cleghorn. I first met him at an Imaging exhibition at the NEC in Birmingham, and thought he was a really good teacher. His online photography training videos are brilliant.
There's also the possiblity that you could earn a place as one of the few select apprentices who Mark mentors each year.
Even if you don't get one of the apprentice places, you can still get personal instruction from Mark in several ways. 'PhotoTraining4U' has just introduced regular Friday evening Online Photo Critique sessions. These Photo Critiques are already very popular - practical and helpful! There are also frequent opportunities to attend real life photography training sessions with Mark.
We have special section for books about travel photography in the Traditional Egypt book store.
Inspirational portfolio books by award-winning photojournalists and travel photographers - such as 'Twilight Visions in Egypt's Nile Delta' by Ann Parker, and books about photography in Egypt - 'Cairo: From Edge to Edge' by Sonallah Ibrahim are included, for inspiration.
There are also plenty of educational/training materials for learning about travel photography. 'Digital Masters: Travel Photography: Documenting the World's People and Places' by award-winning National Geographic photographer, Bob Krist, is highly recommended - a more comprehensive guide to travel photography than most.
'The Photographer's Eye Field Guide: The Essential Handbook for Traveling with Your Digital SLR Camera' by Michael Freeman is worth looking at too . . .

The travel photography market is a particularly hard field to break into. Studying the target market - including travel magazines such as those featured here - is always a good first move. Some magazines also have features specifically to educate photographers.
The monthly "Geophoto" Feature provides detailed, expert advice for photographers from Keith Wilson, the editorial director of Outdoor Photography and Black and White Photography. He explains how to capture extraordinary images, even when working in difficult or unfamiliar conditions (different weather conditions, locations and situations), as is so often the case when travelling. The "Geophoto" Feature is designed promote readers' photographic knowledge and skills to an award-winning level. "Geophoto" also highlights important 'dos and don'ts' of typical travel photography and recommends essential photographic equipment.
