Photography Guides

We are firm believers anyone can learn photography.

And we are living proof of this because we never went to school for photography.

In fact, if you haven’t read our story, we are actually scientists by trade. Photography was just a hobby we both fell in love with during our 18 month honeymoon around the world.

But now, we make our living as professional travel bloggers and photographers who regularly license photos for various media platforms.

The best advice we can offer when it comes to photography is to be tenacious and patient. Always learn from your mistakes because these errors can be some of the best lessons.

If you are looking to license some of our photos, please visit our work with us or contact page.

You can be located anywhere in the world and still take an amazing photo. Photography is about getting creative and making the most of what you have.

But there are a few select locations in the world where that perfect photo is extremely easy to capture.

Let’s start with one of the most iconic locations in the entire world.

Brooklyn Bridge

If this is your first time to NYC, we highly recommend walking across the Brooklyn Bridge at least one. The Brooklyn Bridge is stunning any time of day, but sunset is when the city truly comes alive.

Photography Gear

As full time travel bloggers who always hike, we quickly realized we needed lightweight photography gear. We bought our first camera in Japan and if you can already guess, we purchased a Sony.

But the other problem we faced was how to store this expensive equipment. So we can confidently tell you the gear we have reviewed below has been tried and tested for years.
