Chateau Gudanes Copyright Carla Coulson

I love travelling almost as much as I love travel photography. When I was still at photography school it was clear for me that I wanted to be a travel photography. I was fortunate to have my first travel story on Naples published in Marie Claire and for the next 12 years I travelled the world for working for my favourite magazines.

I have gathered together some posts for those of you who are travel photography enthusiasts and I figured the best place to start was with one of the most important things in photography, the Decisive Moment.

HOW TO SHOOT AN EVENT

Events are rich moments in a city’s life full of strong emotions and tell a strong story of the people, history and culture

HOW TO SHOOT THE BLUE HOUR

The blue hour is that magic moment of the day when the sun has set and the night hasn’t quite fallen. The sky has a beautiful colour cast.
