I have to check a bag every time I fly because my hand luggage is already full to bursting with cameras, lenses, a laptop and all the o ..read more

Welcome to my Canon R5 review. First, the boring disclaimer part (you can skip this if you like!) Wex Photo Video sponsored me to write this post. They did not influence what I’ve written, and I do not accept payment or freebies in exchange for positive reviews. All the gear mentioned was bought and paid for in full by me. No AI was used to write any of this, it’s all my own words, based on my own experiences.

Ethical Travel Photography: How To Capture With A Conscience
Passport & Pixels | Travel Photography Blog
by passportandpixels
6M ago
“Leave only footprints, take only photos”. This oft-repeated adage is supposedly a rule for how to be a responsible traveller. But in reality, it’s much more complicated than that. Because even taking photos can be irresponsible, depending on when, where and how you do it. With so many of us voyaging to every corner of the globe, pointing our cameras at everything and everyone, and posting the results online for the world to see, ethical travel photography is something we need to start taking more seriously. As a travel photographer with more than 20 years’ experience, it’s still something I w ..read more

Travel photography on the road – my photo editing workflow tips
Passport & Pixels | Travel Photography Blog
by passportandpixels
1y ago
As a travel photographer, one of the things I have to consider is how I am going to backup, catalogue, and even edit my photos (and occasional videos) while travelling. All travel photographers have their own travel photo editing workflow, but since a few people have asked about mine, I thought I’d pop it all down in this blog post so you can see what works for me. Of course, there is no right or wrong way to do any of this, but after 20 years as a photographer, this is the system I have ended up with, and so far it seems to work well. You may have your own routine that you’re happy with, or y ..read more

Chichicastenango Market in Guatemala: A Photo Guide
Passport & Pixels | Travel Photography Blog
by passportandpixels
1y ago
When I started planning my trip to Guatemala and asking people for their top tips, several people told me that I simply HAD to visit Chichicastenango market. At this point I couldn’t even pronounce the name, much less spell it, but they were insistent that I would love it, so I added Chichicastenango to my Guatemala itinerary. As a travel photographer I love visiting markets. The people, the colour, the hustle and bustle, all the interesting products on sale… all these elements make for wonderful photography opportunities. Add to that the friendly Maya people with their vibrant dress and tradi ..read more

Visiting San Andres Xecul, Guatemala: Home Of The Famous Yellow Church
Passport & Pixels | Travel Photography Blog
by passportandpixels
1y ago
If you search for images of Guatemala, it won’t be long before you stumble across a photo of a fabulous ornate church, its façade painted sunflower yellow and decorated with detailed mouldings of saints and plants in vivid red, green and blue. The eye-catching patterned church sits in a cute town plaza, and in many of the photos you see online, its vivid design is offset by a bluebird sky, making that mustard-yellow front glow all the brighter. It’s the sort of photo that makes you want to find wherever it is and go there to see it for yourself. So of course that’s exactly what I did. It turns ..read more

The Colourful Market In Solola Guatemala: A Photo Guide
Passport & Pixels | Travel Photography Blog
by passportandpixels
1y ago
One of the things that first attracted me to Guatemala is how vibrant a country it is. Everywhere you go, you see people wearing traditional woven clothing in a rainbow of reds, blues and yellows. Towns and cities like Antigua and Quetzaltenango are crammed with houses painted in vivid shades of amber and azure. Even the cemeteries are colourful – not for the Guatemalan people the dreary grey headstones we’re used to in the west, instead the tombs celebrate life in joyful shades of lime, rose and mustard. But nowhere’s more colourful than Guatemala’s markets. Almost every town has one, and whe ..read more

13 Top Tips For Taking Great Travel Photos Of Markets
Passport & Pixels | Travel Photography Blog
by passportandpixels
1y ago
I’ve photographed markets from Cuba, Myanmar and Guatemala, and from Tanzania to Hungary, and I don’t think I’ll ever get bored of them. Photographing markets is definitely one of my favourite types of photography. Markets are so buzzing and vibrant, there’s so much going on, so much activity and colour. Seeing who’s selling and buying, and what’s being sold and bought, gives you a unique insight into a country’s people and culture. And more often than not, market traders are pretty friendly – after all, they deal with the public on a daily basis – so they tend to be much more open to hav ..read more

The Thrilling Volcan De Acatenango Hike In Antigua Guatemala
Passport & Pixels | Travel Photography Blog
by passportandpixels
1y ago
As you journey around Guatemala, you’ll soon hear people talking about the Volcan de Acatenango hike. From the hostels of Antigua to the bars of Flores, just about every traveller has either done it, is planning to do it, or wants to climb Acatenango volcano but isn’t quite brave enough. There’s a reason this is one of the top things to do in all of Central America. From the slopes of Acatenango you get a front row seat to the eruptions of Volcan de Fuego, one of the world’s most active volcanos. Fuego erupts about every 15-20 minutes, shooting ash and fiery red hot lava into the sky in a rare ..read more
