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.
see the special section for books about travel photography in the Traditional Egypt book store.
Portfolio books by award-winning 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 will inspire you and widen your vision.
There are also plenty of educational 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 . . .
What is your own photographic journey? To make better images of the places and people you love around the world? Or those in your own backyard? We have plenty of great books to help you express your photographic vision of people, places and cultures, just waiting for you to dive in - all with reviews and links to amazon for the best prices!
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.
The monthly "Geophoto" feature provides detailed, expert advice 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. His intention is to boost readers' own photographic knowledge and skills so they can also go out and take award-winning photos themselves. "Geophoto" also highlights important 'dos and don'ts' of typical travel photography and recommends essential photographic equipment.
The Ten Questions 'behind the lens' feature coaxes professional photographers out from behind their cameras, to ask about everything from who inspires them to what's in their kit bags - and their top tips for aspiring photographers.
Superb photography is a crucial component of Geographical Magazine. Images are sourced from photographers, photojournalists and picture libraries from around the world. Photographers view Geographical magazine both as a potential market and a source of inspiration, with quality photography and award-winning journalism. The magazine's range is worldwide - cultural stories, travel features, scientific breakthroughs, reports on current expeditions worldwide, nature, wildlife and issues affecting the environment.
Conde Nast Traveller is another prestigious travel title which is a potential market if you're selling quality travel photograpy.
