Is Travel Photography Dead?

By Etienne / June 23, 2020 / 3 Comments

Ok, I know this above title sounds a bit clickbaity – and to be honest, it is – proclaiming anything to “be dead” always sounds alarmist. But really, I don’t see a bright future for the medium I love.  Travel photography is either already dead, or is turning into something so far removed from the…

Weekly photo assignment #2

By Etienne / April 15, 2020 / 2 Comments

Now, I’d like to focus the assignment on our latest photography tutorial about balance in composition.

For this year’s edition of my annual Bangladesh photograph tour, I was joined by four willing participants.
