Becoming a Travel Photographer


Becoming a Travel Photographer


Class Description

The world is full of unique and beautiful places. By learning the business behind travel photography and mastering how to capture and write those stories, you can get paid while filling up your passport; more importantly, you can brand yourself as a travel photographer.

Laura Grier is a photojournalist who has made a life out of exploring the world, capturing, and writing about her experiences. She has worked for National Geographic, Huffington Post, and is the owner of Beautiful Day Photography (one of LA’s most highly regarded destination wedding companies). In this class she’ll teach you:

  • How to break into the travel photography world
  • How to pitch story ideas and get trips funded
  • How to prepare for destination and travel shoots



I've been listening for, like, two hours. OMG. Like, I could, like, you know, get more from this if, like, she stopped jibbering and get to, like, you know, the topic? She sounds more like a rambling stream-of-thought teenager than a mature adult giving a succinct organized presentation. In two hours, I have, like, learned about two or three things I can, like, use. Like, Ehhhh...? It's like, bor-ing! Like, whutttt? Is she, like, 15 or what? Sheesh.
