You have visited so far (May 2017) 59 cities out of the planned 100. This has surely been an amazing experience for you. If you could give a top 3 advice for photographers looking forward to traveling what would they be?
I actually just added one more too, and finished #60 in Seoul, South Korea. As far as tips, the obvious would be bring good shoes/sandals and lots of batteries. An extra charger comes in handy too. But after that, bring as little as possible. Traveling light, especially as a photographer, makes things so much easier.
Location is important. You don’t want to be stuck far away from all the places you want to go for photography. It might not seem like a big deal when you book the place, but once you’re there, it can really hurt your experience and waste too much time. I hate losing day time stuck in transportation so I always try to be in the heart of the city near some places I want to go. In bigger cities, being next to a metro station is key too. Being able to walk out your door and start shooting is the best feeling. Hassle and hours wasted in transportation is not.
And of course, check out my blog ShooterFiles.com. Hopefully, it can help give an idea of different cities for photography, find what looks most appealing to you, and then give you a head start on places in the city to go for shooting, among other things. Maybe it can even provide some extra inspiration to get you to grab your camera and catch that flight too. That’s why I started it.
