Nomadic Matt – How to Become a Travel Photographer

Learn How to Be an Expert Photographer


I’VE PARTNERED WITH WORLD-CLASS PHOTOGRAPHER LAURENCE NORAH to help you take better pictures when you travel. Laurence, a lovely British chap, has been a professional photographer for six years and first picked up a camera over two decades ago!

He’s widely considered one of the top travel photographers online and has worked with numerous clients, like Panasonic and Vanguard. His work has appeared in magazines and news sites, including in USA Today, The Times, BuzzFeed, and the Evening Standard, and on National Geographic and the BBC.

Each year, he leads intensive photowalks around the world to help people take better pictures — on and off the road.

Think of how you feel when you look a beautiful photograph. That sense of wonder, that feeling of awe. You imagine yourself there. It’s a feeling that inspires.

There’s nothing better than looking at a photo and realizing you took a beautiful image that freezes that magical moment perfectly.

Taking beautiful photos and being able to feel that about your photos isn’t as hard as you think. It doesn’t require buying expensive equipment, fancy studios, or high-tech editing software. All you need is dedication and some simple concepts to you improve your photography right away.
