See Agra and then quickly head for Gwalior | Paul Perton

Gwalior. Not on the itinerary of many India visitors and it really should be. I’d added it to ours on a whim – the evening before the details of our tour were set in stone, I’d been idly remembering a series of British steam locomotives that had been named in the ’30s after various Commonwealth countries, provinces and cities. Amongst them, Gwalior. Not very PC in this insane world of being frightened of offending people, but there was an easy two day slot in our schedule. So, why not? I’m glad we did.The observant amongst you will quickly realise that I’ve skipped Agra and the Taj Mahal. Not. That’s about to happen. In truth, Gwalior probably ought to rank equally with the TM and if you’ve been there before, do replace it on your list of places to see……….

North Korea – Beyond the 38th parallel | John Woot

I set foot into the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) for a week in June 2015, to see and experience from within one of the most reclusive countries in the world. Disclaimer: I bear no political affiliation to the DPRK and all views and opinions expressed are of my own. Not that it mattered anyway. And be warned, this post is pretty lengthy.

Kim II-Sung Square – One of Pyongyang’s mandatory visits with the prominent Grand People’s Study House. Like the Tianamen Square, Kim II-Sung Square is equally imposing in grandeur, size and cultural significance, sans the large mob of tourists. Once you enter the Grand People’s Study House, you are greeted with marbled interiors and well-endowed facilities room after room, buzzing with various pedagogical activities. Computerized catalogs running on windows XP, large polished marble pillars, free consultation rooms actively manned by professors, english books, Mandarin lessons, huge lecture halls, etc, etc……

West – The Red Centre of Australia . Part 2 | Noah Stammbach

I’ve heard and read about the outback being empty, with not much to see and not worth the travel. We Aussies prefer to live on the coast, leaving the vast interior of Australia as no-man’s land. I yearned to explore this expanse; to be alone in the barren plains and to feel the red spirit of Australia. It was difficult to find people keen for such a huge trip. The first time I met Johnny we talked about ferns and grasses (he’s a landscape architect) which happened to lead to the topic of the outback. We then recruited Koentadi (of @koentadyy) who was ready for his first Aussie roadtrip. Planning began in secret. We wanted to be the first to venture inland; far away from the typical destinations of the NSW coast. Some moments from this trip took me to the edge between calm and panic, but there’s always an unquestionable solace to be found in the middle of nowhere. Click here for part 1 of the trip, a story about the staggering variety of landscapes that unfolds in layers from Sydney to the outback……

Best Mirrorless Camera for Travel: Fuji X-T1 | Kate McCulley

This spring, I made a big decision that more and more travel photographers are making: I decided to switch from a DSLR to a mirrorless camera. In other words, I said farewell to the Nikon D5100 that I had been using for two years in favor of the Fuji X-T1, a mirrorless model. And I could not be happier about it! DSLRs are the big professional cameras with lenses that you see pro photographers and serious amateurs use. They have mirrors in their bodies — the light enters the camera, reflects off a mirror, and hits the sensor. By contrast, mirrorless cameras omit the mirror. For that reason, they’re much smaller and lighter, yet they provide a similar quality. All of the photos you’re about to see in this post, excluding the selfie of me with the camera at the top, were taken with my Fuji X-T1.

Marrakech and Ozoud Falls | Luke Walker

Foolishly forgetting that we’d be visiting peak summer when the temperature would be a scorching 40+ degrees, a few weeks back my brother and I decided to take a trip to Marrakech, a place I’d wanted to visit for some time. Despite a somewhat aggressive confrontation with some locals on arrival and frustrating encounters with several souk owners on the first day, we loved it. And the heat wasn’t that bad. The two of us spent just under a week exploring Marrakech’s labyrinth of narrow alleys, visiting the main points of interest, sampling the local food and relaxing in bars with gorgeous panoramic terraces. We also took a trip to the province of Azilal, 150km northeast of Marrakech, to see the breathtaking Ouzoud Falls (photos towards the end of this post). Marrakech is great. The colours, smells, energy and atmosphere. I’d love to visit again……..

A journey to Marrakesh | Jesper Storgaard Jensen

I’m Danish, born in 1964, and have been living in Rome since 1997. I have always loved writing and at a certain point, after my arrival in Rome, I started to collaborate with magazines producing travel articles. It was from this that the Danish Daily wanted to publish a travel article of mine from an Italian island. Unfortunately the PR-photos were of a too poor quality. In other words, I had to do the photos myself. This is when I purchased my first ever 5-mega-pixel camera. That was back in 2003, and since then, my interest in photography has been steadily increasing. I had been working for the Danish Embassy in Rome for ten years, but in 2009 I took the jump to become a full time freelance journalist and photographer shooting travel, culture, food & wine and interviews. Everything with my own imagery. We – a total of eight persons – were doing a 7 day on-the-road-trip round Morocco, two days of which were spent in Marrakesh. As I needed to travel light, I packed only my Fuji gear – Fuji X-E2, the 18-55mm kit lens and the 35 mm lens for portraits & food. I must say that I find this a excellent combination and the overall weight is significantly reduced compared to DSLR gear…….

Fuji vs Nashville…… | Bill Fortney

I’ve been in Nashville, Tennessee all week with our Third Annual Nashville/Ricky Skaggs Americana Workshop.  Country Music/Bluegrass Legend (14 rimes Grammy Winner!) Ricky Skaggs is also an accomplished photographer and good friend and he and I, plus Jim Begley and John “Snake” Barrett, and Nick Coury, run this annual workshop during Nashville’s Bluegrass Month.  While we have been shooting the many fantastic locations around Nashville, I’ve been giving the X-System lenses a workout and thought I might share some of the images from this weeks shoot! Tonight the entire group will go to Ricky and Kentucky Thunders concert at the Historic Ryman Theatre, images from that tomorrow! At Marathon Motorworks we always shoot the decorative tool door at the Motor works offices. Fuji X-T1 with the 16-55……

Schwarzweisse Kappadokien-Erkundung mit dem Fujinon XF 10-24mm |
Feyzi Demirel

Oh Mann! Da stehe ich im Prinzip kurz vor einer Reise in meine „Heimat“ nach Kappadokien und entdecke noch Fotos vom letzten Urlaub dort, die ich noch nicht durchgesehen und bearbeitet habe. Ich habe mich gefragt, warum ich die Fotos vergessen habe, aber den einen Grund habe ich nicht gefunden. Am Wahrscheinlichsten ist es aber, dass ich in der Zwischenzeit zu viele Fotos produziert habe, die eine höhere Priorität hatten. Bei der Durchsicht der Fotos ist mir aber aufgefallen, dass ich mit mehreren Monaten Abstand recht emotionslos und objektiv in der Bewertung sein konnte. Ich denke, dass dieser zeitliche Abstand mitunter ein großer Vorteil sein kann, um Fotos richtig zu bewerten. Eine weitere Sache, die mir aufgefallen ist, war mein aktueller Hang zur Schwarzweiss-Fotografie. Ich weiß zwar genau, was ich daran schätze, wo die Vor- und Nachteile sind, aber dass Farben gerade so dermaßen „Evil“ sind, wundert mich schon. Ist wahrscheinlich nur eine Phase und ich muss da nicht aktiv in die Tiefenanalyse gehen und womöglich justieren……..

How I Became a Location Independent Travel Photographer |
Elia Locardi

Naomi and I just celebrated our 40th month of being on the road full-time and living a 100% location independent lifestyle. Looking back, it seems like a lifetime ago when we made that crazy decision to sell nearly everything we owned and adopt a life filled with travel photography. In a way, it really was a lifetime ago because we were completely different people back then living very different lives; two people with a dream of what could be, teeming with optimism, but with no real idea of how it would all work out in the end. What most people don’t know is that it was an incredible struggle for us to get to where we are now. Success has not come easily and before we made the decision to become location independent, we had spent a few difficult years trying to cope with an impossible amount of debt, losing nearly everything to the housing crisis and eventually having to file bankruptcy. The video explains that journey and how those hardships ushered in a transformation not only to our lifestyle, but our priorities and a complete shift in our ideas of success. It’s weird to think that we had to lose nearly everything to gain what would become the greatest collection of experiences and memories of our entire lives…….

72 hours in Rome | Damien Lovegrove

I recently read two tips on how to become a successful travel blogger. The first one said “Be unique, have a different approach.” That sounds like good advice but being unique is not always an easy thing to do and the other nugget of advice said “Always have a human element in your pictures.” Yet again it’s good advice, people like something or someone to relate to. So I decided to apply the first bit of advice to the second and remove the human element altogether. That way I’m pretty sure I’ll have a unique edge. After all, I’ve spent my life photographing people and in doing so I’ve developed a habit of putting the background out of focus so I decided to just concentrate on the bits that I usually leave out……
