Photo Tips – Camera Care in Extreme Climates When venturing away on a trip with your camera you’ll probably check to see what weather you’re expecting beforehand. If you’re like me, weather forecasting is one of the fun parts about visiting a new destination but the conditions are also something you need to factor in for your camera equipment. One thing to always keep in mind is how your camera will react and how to protect it from any extreme environments and climate conditions out of your control. Now I’m not just talking about the wildest places on earth, you might be heading to the snow for a week of skiing or to a tropical island where you’ll be around a lot of water and humidity. Both environments create the same type of problems for your camera and both just take a little bit of pre-planning in order for your gear to remain in good condition. The main issue effecting cameras is condensation which results from a change in temperature when you’re walking in and out of a hotel room or from an air conditioned car to the beach. Any dramatic change in temperature will also be felt by your...

Travel Photography Jobs + Tips for Becoming a Travel Photographer Travel photography offers a broad range of potential career paths that can see you and your camera heading off for endless adventures around the world. From working as a photojournalist to capturing photos at a resort, there are plenty of ways to combine your love of travelling with photography if you’ve got both determination and talent. I’ve been utterly obsessed with travelling since I was in school and first attempted to become a pilot so I can fly myself (and a plane load of passengers) to exotic destinations. That plan fell through when I got violently air sick during every flying lesson so my back-up was to become a travel journalist. You can read about that journey here but long story short, that path led to discovering the art of photography and over the past 15 years I’ve worked a number of jobs under the ‘travel photography’ umbrella and it’s been one crazy, incredible adventure. For those with a creative mind and the motivation to turn their dream into a reality and working business, it may sound cliché but the sky really is the limit. Sure it takes a tonne...

Prepare for your next Photography Adventure! We’ve all got those dream photography missions that one day we’ll accomplish. It could be capturing the frozen beauty of Iceland (yes please!), or photographing gorillas in the jungles of Uganda (take me with you), or even just getting a decent angle of your local beach. Regardless, you can give yourself a little advantage by investing in some time spent planning just how you’ll make that epic shot happen. When researching ideas for The Wandering Lens, I spend hours on the computer weighing up where to go and when. I’m a little sick of visiting the over populated tourist hubs and have resorted to scouring satellite imagery for hidden corners of the world that may be a bit trickier to reach. I’ve even started challenging myself to a daily hike or run (*fast walk) in order to increase the chances that I can physically make it to these places I find while sitting comfortably at home adding to my wish list. There’s of course no real textbook approach for planning a trip but for photographers like me who love a good spot of travel strategising, I thought I’d pop together a little list of...
