Travel photography - the very term conjures up one of the most beloved and sought-after aspects of travel: our ability to capture visual stories of places and share them with the world, transporting our audience to the place we ourselves have been. It is said that “a picture is worth a thousand words”, and nowhere is this as true as in travel photography. No, we can’t capture all the senses of smell, sound and others in a photo, but one well taken can tell a rich story of the place and people in the frame. But how can we take the most epic photos possible while traveling? Read on as we explore how to get started!
The Galapagos Islands are a prime example of how ecotourism can be used as a tool for conservation. As one of the most biologically diverse regions of the world, this archipelago boasts over 76 species of native and endemic animals. While sea-based tours have traditionally been the primary method to explore the islands, in recent years the development of new lodges, hotels, and safari camps has led to a rise in land-based tours.
