Snap. Snap. Snap. If the sound of the shutter is a familiar sound to you when you’re on vacation, then you probably know (or are) a travel photographer.

That’s why I’ve put together this handy guide of gifts for travel photographers.
The Galapagos Islands are one of the most unique, biodiverse areas on the planet.

Sitting in your pocket or your purse is one of the most powerful pieces of technology to date. That’s right your smartphone.
