To some degree all travelers are photographers if they have a camera packed in their bag. But there are also those who travel simply to photograph. If you’re in this category you’re travel bag is usually half full of camera equipment and the first thing you do on waking is look out the window to check the light.

Taking a photography tour can sharpen your skills as you learn how to capture the spirit of a place. The rich history, vibrant cultures, diverse landscapes, gorgeous light and mesmerizing sunsets of different places are all fabulous subjects for taking photos.

For example you could follow the movement of wildlife in the Serengeti, photograph the quaint hill towns of Tuscany, the soft Irish landscapes, the interesting people of Central Asia or the myriad of jungle life in the Amazon.
