A Travel Guide to Better Photos

You don’t need to carry lots of heavy equipment to get fantastic travel images. You can get cameras which are small and lightweight but still offer great quality, so travelling with a camera has never been easier. But a good camera doesn’t necessarily mean great pictures. During this talk, pro photographer and founder of the Travel Photographer of the Year awards, Chris Coe, will show you how to turn your snapshots into photos with a ‘WOW Factor’ that will not only give you lasting memories of a fabulous trip but also photographs which really capture the essence of that journey. Travel light, shoot safe, shoot better.
