A travel photographer has to work in a variety of styles and disciplines: one day you might be hanging from a plane, the next elbowing through crowds at a festival and the day after that shooting sharks underwater. This means that you have a wider range of knowledge than photographers not working in travel: but it also means that you should never get bored on your travels!

This section of the Better Travel Photography site aims to give you some of that knowledge with a series of 501 travel photography tips. These will be created and added to over successive weeks and months in order to give a unique resource to help you to improve your travel photography.
