T+L Social Ambassador Altug Galip shares some of his favorite photos from his travels.
The T+L Social Ambassadors are a team of photographers who are taking it to the next level on Instagram. These are the people we see living their best lives, and inspiring our travels on a daily basis. These ambassadors help us all discover the world, whether it’s exploring a set of national parks, embarking on an African safari, or just taking some time to enjoy the sound of waves from a beach in Europe. Follow along as we introduce more of our ambassadors on the T+L website and social accounts.
Galip is sharing a few more of his favorite photos, this time as one of our T+L Social Ambassadors.
“I’ve always loved traveling. I was introduced to Instagram by a friend in 2011,” he said. “I downloaded the application out of curiosity [and] had never previously been interested in taking photos.”
Since then, Galip has been fueling his feed with stunning shots from around the world: Cappadocia, Greece, Bali, Slovenia, and more.
One of his favorite destinations was Norway. “Capturing Aurora Borealis is a once-in-a-lifetime experience,” he said. And that vacation even spurred a job opportunity: Galip now offers photo tours, the next being to Norway's Lofoten Islands.
When asked for his tips for up-and-coming travel photographers, Galip said flexibility is key.
“I think the most important thing to consider is timing,” he said. “I’ve had to cancel my flight many times in order to catch the right light and weather conditions to take photos.”
