How Award-Winning Travel Photographs Are Taken


Do you have a solid technical understanding of your camera and how to take a good travel shot, but lack the examples you need to take your photography to that next level?

Many of us have that understanding, but need that extra bit of practical guidance to get our photographs from good to great (or even “award winner” or magazine cover!). In this first-time guide for Light Stalking, famous travel photographer Mitchell Kanashkevich shows you exactly how many of his best shots were conceived, shot and produced.

Each of the ten examples in Rabari – Encounters With the Nomadic Tribe has gone on to either win awards or be seen in magazines (including the cover of the prestigious Geographical magazine from the Royal Geographical Society). Here Mitchell shows you exactly how he did it.

This guide will explain several of the problems that we all have when trying to get shots to reach that next level in our photography:

  • exactly what equipment was used
  • exact camera settings
  • why each shot was taken the way it was
  • detailed explanatory lighting maps
  • practical considerations like language and communications
  • how the light was used and manipulated
  • what exactly was done in post processing (and how to get the effect in your own photographs)

Here is just a little of what you can expect:

Who is This Book For?

If you have ever thought “I wish I knew how they did that” when you saw a professional travel magazine shot, then you will love the exact, detailed explanations of every part of the process of getting these award winning shots. This guide lays open the whole playbook of a professional travel photographer in minute detail. Nothing is held back.

If you want to know more of the real basics of travel documentary photography (like actually communicating with the locals in another language for example) then there will be plenty in this practical guide for you too.
