    Classic Travel Photography Mistakes: 07 Upsetting the locals

    Professional Photographer to the Rescue: tell a story with your travel photography

    Not everyone likes being photographed; you wouldn’t push your camera into the face of a market stall holder at home, so don’t do it when you’re abroad.

    Shoot from a respectful distance using a longer lens is necessary and if the subject objects, stop shooting and give a smile and wave to diffuse the situation.

    In some cases a little cash is enough to persuade someone to allow you to photograph them, but tread carefully to avoid being swamped or causing offense.
