My View On Taking Tourist/Holiday Photos


I’m back from my holiday in Lindisfarne. I’ve had a wonderful time with family and enjoyed myself and was able to relax.

Tourism photography is not something that I have tried to avoid in the past. Everyone does it and when it comes to this genre there are so many great photos easily available.

However I have been with family and we all want those memories of a wonderful time. So I’ve used many of the skills that I’ve learned over the past year, and have tried to be creative. I will upload some to my gallery when I get the chance to develop them, but I’m getting back to my studies from tomorrow.

I have enjoyed making tourist/holiday photography, and of course there’s been some bird photography as well.

In the mean time here’s a quick snap from my Huawei phone.

  1. Glad you enjoyed your holiday, it’s nice to spend time with the family, we probably don’t do it enough. We went to Lindisfarne probably around 25+ years ago when the children were small and loved it, in fact we like Northumberland in general – a lovely county. I look forward to seeing your pictures Richard.

    I think one of the advantages of doing this course is it gives you the skills to make even holiday or family snaps so much better. I was editing some of the photos I took in Cyprus and found myself cropping some of them and then doing spot removal in order to remove objects that I knew would be a distraction.

    Also wondered if you know about The Co-optic Group and their “Real Britain postcard project”; photographers, including Martin Parr, who aimed to take photographs of what the ‘real’ Britain looks like. I saw an exhibition of their work at the Brighton Festival in 2014. and .
