Travel Etiquette Do's and Don'ts: How to Photograph Locals

Jasper Rietman

How to Photograph Locals Without Offending Them

Do...

…ask for permission. If words fail, show your camera and wait for a reaction before shooting.

…strike up a conversation. Compliment the subject’s family, ask a question, or share a laugh.

Don’t...

…push too hard. If the subject says no, find someone else to photograph.

…try to be sneaky. You risk affronting someone who’d rather not be photographed.
