What a silly question. What country provides the best photo opportunity? There are so many great photo opportunities everywhere.

I think every country offers its own unique photographic opportunities, at least everyone I’ve been too so far.

However since my country is not represented here, I’ll share some from Ireland.

Easy… whichever country you’re currently in! There are great photographic opportunities just outside your door no matter where you are. You just need to find (see) them.

My current muse is the Southern California coastline (because it’s only minutes from home) but there are enough great landscape locations in this state alone that I may not get to all of them in my lifetime.

Obviously all the photos taken from different countries are all stunning. they are all unique in their own way. It is just a matter of when and where it was taken, co’z time and place really have a huge impact visually in photos……….

Don’t have nice photo of my country at the moment, I’ll share some as soon as I have one.

Any place in the world is amazing to photograph, and if the photographer is talented, he can capture amazing photos anywhere in the world. For me personally, the most picturesque country in the world is Morocco. But then, I have not see all of them neither am I a professional photographer :-).

It isn´t just how pretty the place is though.. as in… to earn money and get the most amount of work as a pro photographer, some countries are surely better than others.

New Zealand (where I am based) isn´t bad, but huge huge amounts of competition and almost everyone has a photographer or two if they use photographers at all.
