You have to wear a lot of hats to be a travel blogger, including travel photographer. Even though I take photos for my travel blog, they’re not the same as the photos I take “for fun”. Here are the main differences between travel blog photography and normal travel photography.

  8. Very interesting, Jodie. Thanks for the insight. In this situation, as a travel writer, you’ve shown that you’re a professional photographer with yourself as the customer. You have to deliver the product to Dewberry so she can visualize and write articles. Keep up the great work!

  17. Very interesting! I like how you are finding yourself taking pictures for different reasons. I usually just take photos for fun or for Instagram, but as I am starting to utilize my blog more since it got revamped a few months ago, I am starting to add photos there as well. I will have to keep these tips in mind. Thank you for the video!

  18. your the best vlogger..

  19. That looks like such a beautiful place

  20. I really have a problem to accept image of artificial happiness in virtual life of social media. I think it provides so many young people towards wrong decisions or even depression. I appreciate your explanation how you are selecting pictures for different purpose. Your fear of spending night under a tent among wild life in Africa especially was important for your followers to distinguish fiction from reality. Thank you Jodie for being honest and great traveller. Safe travels and best regards from your much older friend. 👏👍 from 🇨🇦🤗

  21. Great location and interesting video I take photographs for me if I like it or need to remember something the only other reason is to show friends and family who don’t live close what’s going on

  22. Lovely vlog😍😍😍.New subsciber here…

  23. Save yourself some back ache and use a manual point and shoot, and a small tripod.

  24. This is really well explained, hadn't thought of all those details before. Thanks so much 🙂

  25. Can someone please give me the direct link to the music track at 0:10.
