As part of our effort to exceed our photo tour guests’ expectations, we’re starting a series to help guests get ready for our trips (the first one is in Nepal in 2019, if you’re interested).
We’ll post those emails here as we hope they are helpful to anyone wishing to visit Nepal or Bhutan with an interest in photography.
- Is it time for travel photographers to take more responsibility? By Lola Akinmade Åkerstrom – A good take on how we photographers portray other cultures and why context matters (and why gaining that context matters).
- How not to alienate locals: Tips for responsible photos. By Nicola Bailey – Referenced from Lola’s article above, this article lists 10 things to think about when shooting foreign cultures. #6, Interact Before Shooting, is something I’ve professed for a while.
- Top Places in Nepal for Non Adventure Travelers By Kathleen – We’ll be visiting some of these places on our tour and others are available as tour extensions. Ask us for details on adding any of these adventures.
- Himalayan Heroes: Then & Now By Sherpa Adventure Gear – A brief highlight of some past and present climbing legends in Nepal. We won’t be scaling Everest, but this brief article can put local Nepali heroes into context of the areas we will visit.
Thanks for reading!
