Summer Vacation Travel Tips for Photographers

Summer Vacation Photography TipsAs summer approaches, at least for those of us in the Northern Hemisphere, a lot of us begin to make plans for our summer vacations (or the organized among us are getting ready to go on vacations they planned months and months ago). As photographers, though, we have a bunch of extra stuff we have to bring with us. Sometimes our point-and-shoot camera will do the trick, but depending on where you’re going, you may be packing most of your gear: a dSLR body or two, a bunch of lenses, filters, a cleaning kit, flashes, and a whole bunch more. But I can’t really tell you how or what to pack – we all have different bags, different gear, different destinations, and different photographic priorities. Instead, here are some general tips on traveling with your gear (from deciding what to bring, how to bring it, and what hotels to book).

Photography Destinations: Australia

If you’re in the northern hemisphere like me, we’re just getting into the dead of summer. Is the heat getting to you? Well, if you head south… like “down under” south, Australia is right smack in the middle of winter. Nice and cool (for the most part, at least - weather in Australia can vary… it’s a whole continent, you know!), and ripe for photographers to invade and photograph. Join me on a virtual flight to Australia, exploring the land down under.

Photography Destinations: Dubai

Flights to Abu Dhabi or a flight to Dubai, especially from Europe, are relatively reasonable - however, once you arrive, Dubai holidays are anything by inexpensive. The cities of the UAE are incredible: the fastest, biggest, tallest, largest and highest. Whether you visit just to gawk at lavishness of the Emirates, or you’re an avid architecture photographer, when you leave Dubai, you will not leave disappointed.

Photography Destinations: New York to Orlando

Whether you’re from the United States or not, the large, North American country offers a wide range of photographic opportunities. Whether you’re looking for New York weekend breaks to photograph Central Park and the Statue of Liberty, or perhaps you want to head to Disney World because you found a cheap flight to Orlando, there is lots to explore and photograph in the USA.

Photography Destinations: Cyprus and Malta

Cyprus and Malta are island countries located in the Mediterranean Sea. They are popular holiday destinations because of their beautiful location and history - both great reasons for photographers to visit. Cyprus holidays are among the most popular in the Mediterranean, attracting over 2.4 million tourists per year, while strictly Malta Holidays are less common, as visits to Malta tend to stem from travelers exploring Italy, as it is located just south of Sicily. Both countries, however, are worth exploring and are filled with numerous photographic opportunities.

Photography Destinations: Singapore and Bangkok

Considered part of the “Far East,” both Singapore and Bangkok offer unique photographic opportunities, especially to the “western” photographer. Both Singapore and Bangkok (Thailand) are situated in the Malay Peninsula, with Singapore creating the southern tip of the peninsula, while the central and northeast regions makes up the south part of Thailand. Bangkok, the capital of Thailand, and Singapore are less than 900 miles (1500 kilometres) apart, however flights to Thailand and flights to Singapore can vary in price as much as $1000, so it is wise to check ahead, as there are many travel options between the two cities. A Bangkok flight from New York, for instance, can cost upwards of $1500-$2000, round trip, so keep that in mind when making your travel plans. Hotel prices can be quiet reasonable, however, but it’s wise to plan the trip well in advance to get the best deals. But enough about getting there, let’s take a quick look at what you can photograph once you’re there.
