No doubt if you love travelling, you’ll love capturing your adventures on camera. Travel offers countless moments that you will want to capture, plus it’s a great way for you to share (read: brag) your holiday with friends, family and the dog back at home.
With the blogosphere full of photography tips, we’ve done a round-up of what to keep in mind behind the lens. Plus don’t miss out on a chance to win some amazing photography and video kit too - scroll down to find out more!

One word, ‘Instagram’. Hours, maybe days, have been lost down the Instagram rabbit hole. Not only is it great inspiration for where to go travelling but it is a great for what to capture with your camera.
With options such as DSLRs, compact cameras or phones, what you take is down to weight, space and what works best for you. We love Mollie Bylett’s guide to cameras. If you do opt for just your phone, lens kits are lightweight and give you a range of different creative options.
Planning on doing some windsurfing or biking trails? You can’t beat the robust GoPro for video, plus with great photo quality in tow you get the best of both worlds in one device.
Some happy snaps you’ll only want to share with friends, and the Fujifilm Instax is perfect for those spontaneous shots.
For those of us wanting to feature in our photos and lacking an abnormally long arm, we’d suggest selfie sticks and travel friendly tripods as great additions to your kit.
A quick scan of the summer months on Instagram and your feed soon begins to clog up with vacation food and beach selfies. But here are a few ideas to take it up a creative notch.
Dusk to dawn
The same sights look very different at different times of the day. Get up early and not only will you benefit from soft filtered morning light, you will beat the crowds filling your frame. Late evenings and night offer a new and unique perspective whether it is city lights or beach stars. Just remember that in low light you’ll need to keep your camera steady.
Travelling the world is as much about the people you encounter along the way as the places themselves. Be sure to ask permission before you snap away, and maybe you’ll end up being the next Brandon Stanton.
Don’t just stick to taking photos at ground level. You’ll get to capture so much more from a higher vantage point.
We often only pull our cameras out when we arrive at sights, but travelling is so much more. Film is great at capturing your journeys and all those things you try.
If you want to do some editing on the go, there are loads of apps out there, such as VSCO and PS Express, plus Instagram itself packs a mean punch. With most devices now having wi-fi capability, quick editing is not limited to just those photos taken on your phone.
Need more space? There’s nothing worse than running out of storage half way through your travels. We love nothing more than some free storage - look to Dropbox, Google Photos, iCloud, Amazon Prime for starters.
