Travel Photography 101 2.5/18

Confessions, musings and tips from a snap-happy wanderer.

“Okay, you pose for the photo and I’ll arrest him”  (Presidential Palace, Santiago, Chile)

Always be on your guard.


The guards at Buckingham Palace or Washington’s Arlington National Cemetery are likely amongst the most photographed individuals in both capital cities, but always be careful when taking snaps of anyone in uniform. In many countries it’s not only illegal to photograph police or military, but there’s little hesitation in confiscating your camera and film/memory card and even prosecuting you. Although a night or two in jail can be an interesting cultural experience for some, it’s preferable to do your research before you go and familiarise yourself with the dos and don’ts of your destination.
