The Travel Series: Changes in Latitude, Great Voyages for Travel Photographers

Every travel photographer has a bucket list of dream destinations. There are a number of wild places in the world that are best visited by ocean-going expeditions on small passenger ships, and you don't have to go halfway around the world to find world-class photo opportunities.

The Travel Series: Getting the Most from Your Mornings

As sure as the sun will rise, it is infinitely better to capture your travel landscapes at exactly that moment—sunrise.
