Calling all photographers

Yorkshire sunsetDo you dream of earning a living by travelling to faraway places and taking photographs for travel companies, picture libraries and publishers?If so, paying for your adventures by selling those images need no longer be a pipe dream, thanks to a Travel Photography Master Class which is being held in London’s Covent Garden at Stanfords, the world’s leading specialist retailer of maps and travel books, on Tuesday 26 October at 7.30pm.  The event is timed to coincide with the launch of the Insight Guide to Travel Photography - "How to Take Striking Images" published by Insight Guides, who pioneered the use of images to communicate the atmosphere of a destination.

How to take striking imagesSeveral contributors of this new Travel Photography Guide, professionals at the top of the tree, will be at the Master Class to pass on their insider tips. Among those imparting expert knowledge will be Sylvaine Poitau who will be talking about portraiture and Martyn Goddard on landscape photography.  All photographers are favourite travel photographers of Insight Guides, as well as national newspapers and top glossy magazines.

Also revealing what he looks for in a photograph, will be Insight Guides’ own picture editor, Steven Lawrence. Preceding the Masterclass will be a prize-giving of Insight Guides’ own annual travel photography competition, giving those interested in participating in next year’s competition a chance to see what they are up against. 

First prize is a much sought after photographic commission with Insight Guides, worth £3,000, to photograph a travel destination for a future guide book, helping to pave the way for a new and exciting career in travel photography.
