The Ultimate Holiday Guide for Travel Photographers

Travel photographers have perhaps the most desirable career in the world. They are, as their name suggests, paid to travel and take photographs. This means that they are allowed to adventure across the world and see the world’s most beautiful places. You can also make a considerable amount of money working as a freelance photographer – to do this you simply travel wherever the wind takes you and submit your photographs to magazines. Yes, the life of a travel photographer is one that all would enjoy. It is a life of freedom, fun, and memorable experiences.

In this article, we are going to offer you the ultimate holiday guide for photographers. We will put forward a number of suggestions of great places for you to travel to if you want to make it big as a travel photographer but do not have any locations in mind. Here is the ultimate holiday guide for photographers.


Japan is one of the most popular destinations for travel photographers from all around the world. It is a country with rich architecture, culture, and scenery. Its countryside is almost unrivaled, and it is stunningly beautiful. One of the most popular destinations in Japan for travel is Kyoto. Kyoto, an ancient city, boasts a stunning old town district with traditional Japanese buildings, a bamboo forest, and a number of temples that are traveled to by hundreds of thousands of people every single year. Japan is a beautiful country and the photographs that can be taken of it are incredibly beautiful.

If you are a travel photographer, Japan should be your first destination. You can improve the quality of your photos by adding filters, such as pastels, onto your photos post-taking them. Because of the unique architecture and agriculture in Japan, filters can accentuate your photos massively and make them considerably more beautiful. Japan has a number of cities that you can visit, all with their own unique architecture and design. The countryside boasts a number of incredibly beautiful and fascinating villages. We definitely recommend that if you are a travel photographer, Japan’s the place to go.


Rome, Italy. Rome, once the capital of the world, is one of the most beautiful cities in the entire world. While Italy is, admittedly, gorgeous – Rome tops the proverbial cake. Rome is a city that photographers flock to yearly to capture its ancient architecture and once-in-a-lifetime sights on camera. Photographs of Rome are very popular amongst travel photographers and magazines often pay big bucks for them. Rome is a city that you can, if you are based in Europe, travel to quite cheaply. You needn’t spend a lot of money on a trip to Rome, and if you are a travel photographer who loves to get knee-deep, then we have a suggestion for you…

If you are traveling to Rome, why not travel through Switzerland and into Italy. This is a fantastic way to catch amazing sights along the way and take photographs that will leave your editors dying for more. This part of Europe is this author’s favorite and I assure you the photographs you capture here can be unlike any others. Travel to Rome through the backcountry of Italy and meet the locals along the way – capture moments, people, and places. The memories will last a lifetime and the photos and videos will turn a profit.


All Scandinavian countries are a photographer’s dream. The diversity of landscape and weather is astounding. You will be able to capture photos that are beyond description – towering mountains topped with snow; icy cliff faces; frozen waterfalls; miles and miles of beautiful fields. Scandinavia is often one of the first destinations that European travel photographers go to in order to capture photos. Scandinavia is a beautiful place, unlike any other in the world. We recommend you start with Norway, then work your way through the other Scandinavian countries.


Ah, London. How could we finish this page without mentioning beautiful London? London, once the heart of an empire on which the sun never set, is one of the most beautiful and oft-visited cities in the world. As a photographer, you will be able to capture unique and wonderful photographs, from Buckingham Palace to Tower Bridge. London is a city that can be very expensive to travel to, however, so if you are going there to take photos, make sure you can offset the costs of living, hotels, and travel. London is a beautiful place and we whole-heartedly recommend visiting there once.

In this article, we hope to have explained to you the ultimate holiday guide for photographers. The destinations mentioned on this page should be fantastic if you are a photographer and the photographs that you take should make you a lot of money. Thank you for reading and please do visit us again!
