|TRAVEL PHOTOGRAPHY - 100 TOP TIPS|
In 2017, David will release the 16th book of his work, titled: Travel Photography - 100 Top Tips (below)
The 200 page book will features many of the most popular photographs he's captured over more than two decades to reveal the approach, the techniques and the circumstances which have contributed to making him one of the world's most widely published travel and tourism photographers.
As he writes in the introduction, "This book has been created on the simple premise that anyone keen to improve their travel photography is likely to gain from the first-hand experience of a professional travel photographer who has risen to the top of his game and spent the past two decades enthusiastically studying his craft."
PERSONAL TUITION FOR TRAVEL PHOTOGRAPHERS
I’m frequently asked to give advice on travel photography so I’ve devised a simple formula which I believe will fast-track any photographer’s ability to capture world-class travel images. Just send me 10 of your best photographs and a short summary of what you’re interested in learning about and I’ll give you direct, personal tuition on how to improve your travel photographs.
The lesson will draw from nearly two decades of experience I’ve accumulated as a professional travel and tourism photographer. It will focus specifically on your work and how to capture better pictures or improve your prospects to make money from your photographs.
It seems to me that photography workshops, instruction books, magazine articles and DVD’s can be a long - and sometimes expensive - road to learning about travel photography. You can spend hours immersed in them and still not find something that speaks to where you are at that moment in your evolution as a photographer. Sometimes we all just need someone with an experienced eye to look at our work and suggest how we might do it differently or provide information about a specific technique we’re interested in.
That bit of advice can change your trajectory completely.
So, I’ve created this formula to fast-track the learning curve of photographers who are looking for guidance to improve their images. Just send me 10 of your photos and an indication of your area of interest, then spend 20 minutes in a one-on-one telephone or Skype session with me and I’m prepared to guarantee your photography will improve.
As part of the session, I’ll review what you've sent me and offer advice on what you might have done differently to improve the pictures. I’ll also suggest what you could be concentrating on to improve your photography, answer any questions you might have about a specific technique, and consider what you want to achieve with your photographs.
If I receive your parcel and I don’t think I have anything to offer, I’ll simply say so.
If you’re reading this, you’re likely to be one of two types of travel photographer - a traveller with a camera who wants to know how to improve their photography largely for themselves or a travel photographer who wants to learn specific techniques, has specific questions or is seeking to improve their prospects to make money from their photographs. Either way, this one-on-one tuition is the most efficient way I can think of to pass on what I've learned and fast-track your ability to capture world-class travel photographs.
As I’m keen to ensure you value my advice (and we all tend to take instruction more seriously if we’re paying for it), the cost of the 20 minute session will be AUD$150 (paid into my Paypal account once we have agreed on when to have the chat as I'll need to work it in around my assignment schedule).
The instruction I’m offering is based on this simple, single premise: That you’re a lot more likely to learn how to improve your photography from someone who’s making a living from it if the instruction is based on a knowledge of your work and your ability, coupled with an understanding of your priorities and needs as a photographer.
