What’s the Story of Your Trip?

Travel photos help you to remember and re-live the experiences you had, and for those who weren’t on your trip, your photos are a way for them to vicariously share your experiences.

Every trip you go on tells a story. Within the story arc of your trip are mini-stories. These are the many events that happen each day while on your trip.

For example, if you go on a game drive in the morning, that is a mini-story. Let’s say in the afternoon you enjoyed a picnic lunch in the forest — that is its own mini-story. If in the evening you went to a concert, that is a third mini-story.


Each event — each experience of your day, whether you go window shopping, visit a museum, go kayaking on a river, or have lunch at a cafe — is a mini-story with its own story arc. Each of these mini-stories has a beginning, middle and end. Do you see how your trip can be broken down into smaller stories?


Rather than shooting ONE image that has to capture the entire event — say, you standing in front of the Eiffel Tower to represent your entire experience in Paris — learn how to tell a story in a series of images. In “Amazing Travel Photos Made Easy” instructor Brit Hammer shows you how.

There are other ways to break a story down into mini-stories, such as the images shown here of Table Mountain (Cape Town, South Africa). Brit recently shot these as part of the behind-the-scenes story while filming for a museum project with her filmmaker/photographer husband, Armand Dijcks.

Join Brit in “Amazing Travel Photos Made Easy” and learn how to get your own photos like these.  The course touches upon several different types of photography:

  • landscape & seascape photography
  • wildlife photography
  • interior photography
  • food photography
  • cityscape & architecture photography

“I just wanted to thank you for another wonderful class. I have to confess that each week when I read the new assignment, my first reaction was mild panic and a deep certainty that I would not be able to produce anything worthwhile that fit within the parameters you had set. But before I knew it, the ideas started to flow, and I quickly became obsessed (no, that isn’t too strong a word!) with exploring the possibilities. I can honestly say that the photos I produced in response to your assignments are among my favorites. Thanks for bringing out a creative side I didn’t know I had!”

“Thank you so very much for this course! It’s allowed me to take the blinders off and present my images for what I want them to be without being a slave to the “reality” of the camera. I would also add that in conjunction with your printing course, this has been the most useful course I’ve ever taken. Your notes are more than comprehensive and your comments and critiques are direct, clear, and always directed to the improvement of the art.”

” I want to thank you for this class and for your patience and availability to answer all of my questions. I have learned very much through this class. I have used LR in the past, but mostly for editing images. I now have a better grasp in the organization of my images, an even better understanding of editing images, and an understanding of the value of presets. I still have a lot to learn, but this has put me on the road to be able to improve my photography. Again, thank you! ”
