Welcome to my travel photography blog! Everything’s got a beginning, and so is the case here – it’s my very first post. I’m not embarrassed to admit it, though, nothing great ever starts overnight! And it will be great, I promise. Just bear with me and I’ll give you plenty of reasons to stick around!
It’s probably not going to be what you’d expect from a typical first blog post, but there’s nothing wrong about being different, is there? I’ll let you be the judge. Let me kick start with a couple of my favourite photos and some out-loud thinking about the past and the future of travel photography.
A New Way To Explore
Our world’s beautiful, but also pretty big. Life’s awesome, but also rather short. There are so many places to be and things to see, but so little time to visit them all. On the positive note, unlike our parents or their parents before them, we’re much closer to those distant places than you’d think. Only few clicks away, in fact.
That’s because we have internet, and we have social media. We may not be able to physically visit all the 196 countries that divide our planet, but the online world has no borders. It’s unbelievable what we can find; amazing how much we can see, and learn, without leaving the comfort of our armchairs.
Strength’s In The Numbers
Internet’s just a tool, however. It’s the collective power of people like you and me that made it all possible. No single photographer would ever be able to document the world alone, but millions of photographers together? That’s a completely different story.
Some do it for work, some do it for fun; others don’t even realise they are doing it! The truth is that with each and every new photo taken and shared, ‘the library’ is getting bigger. You know, the internet. And whether you call yourself a photographer or not, you’re likely contributing too.
That’s because ‘the ordinary’ for you may be not so ordinary for someone across the globe. For instance, there’s people who have never seen snow, and those living in areas where snow is present most of the year. Interest in each other’s photos could be naturally explained.
Future of Travel Photography
It all started round 1800, when we basically invented photography. The term travel photography didn’t exist back then. Now, we’re looking at photos taken on the surface of Mars. That’s not really travel photography any more, or is it?
If you can fly drones to take photos then I’d say you can use slightly bigger devices, slightly further away from earth, just like the one NASA used on Mars. I think that’s just a new generation of travel photography that we’re yet to experience. And the question should be, how far will travel photography go?
Travel Photography By Me
Like millions of other photographers, I too will try to grab your attention by sharing my travel photos and stories. My mission is simple – to make my images look different to all those millions of photos that have been taken already! Challenging? Yes, but life’s boring without challenges!
If you like exploring and can appreciate a slightly different approach to traditional photography then you came to the right place. I’ll always make sure that your attention is worth your time by putting enough of my time and attention into my work, you have my word.
