Affordable Travel Photography

201101-b-logojpg

Looking to travel, but don’t have any vacation time left after taking the holidays off? Check out the Mammoth Collection, an online art gallery that sells prints from as little as $20. Its strong collection of photographs will tame your wanderlust with a visual tour of the world.

The series includes high-quality, yet affordable prints from Nicholas McElroy, a photographer who spends his summers on a muskox domestication project in Alaska, to Wang Yuanling, a photojournalist based in Chongqing, China.

Most prints are available in a variation of sizes and prices, including 8" x 10" ($20), 11" x 14" ($50), 16" x 20" ($200), and 24" x 30" ($800). The company makes their prints in-house with archival pigment inks on heavyweight 100% cotton fibre archival paper.

Here are a few of my favorites below. Click on them to snag a copy. What are your favorites?

Review: Attachable Lens for Your Cell Phone

fisheye-manhattancroppedjpg

Like most people, my phone is always with me, and serves as my primary camera for spur-of-the-moment pics. But as a Blackberry user, while the image quality is amazing (for a phone), there aren’t any fun bonus features that come with it.

Cool Photo Gear: Kata Camera Bags

201004-b-photo-1jpg

I'm loving the photo bags and organizers from Kata lately. The founders of this company, who met while serving in the Israeli army, started making photo bags in 1992. Now they have a full line of photo and video gear that is light and ultra-protective.

My favorite is the Pro-Light FlyBy 74, which is a generous camera bag that doubles as a roll-aboard suitcase.  It has veritcal and horizontal handles, and a tripod holding option on the front. The inside is the best part: super modular, the interior panels are bright yellow, making it much easier to find your photo gear than it would be in a black-lined case.

Our Favorite DSLR Camera Right Now

201004-b-nikon1jpg
Question that I get asked all the time: I have a digital point-and-shoot camera that I like, but I want to take my photography to the next level. Can you recommend an easy-to-use DSLR camera that will take great images for years to come?

My new answer:  The Nikon D5000.

201004-b-nikon2jpg
I am really excited about this camera.  It has a lot of the aspects you’d expect from Nikon: wonderful colors and metering, excellent image quality, sharp lens, HD video, but it has a new feature that really gets me—the flip-and-twist LCD screen.

Invisibility Cloak for Your Camera

201003-b-cloak-bag-1jpg

While traveling, I'm either too slow to take my camera out of my bag to capture that perfect moment, or too nervous to flash such a pricey piece of equipment in public.

Enter the Cloak Bag, the world's first shoot-through camera bag. The bag's unique bottom zipper design allows photographers to snap away without removing their SLR cameras from the bag, which saves time and also affords photographers a bit more discretion when taking photos in unfamiliar locals where thieves may target tourists. For $49, it's a steal to have that peace of mind.

T+L Special Event: The Green Classroom

201002-b-invitejpg
I had the pleasure of visiting Sayulita, Mexico while helping out on a fashion shoot for T+L back in June 2007 with the amazing photographer Anne Menke, who has been living in the laid-back hippie town for five years now with her three sons and husband. (Anne recently shot the cover of our Family insert in the current March issue using one of her three sons and local kids, cover below.)

Anne also founded the first green school in Mexico in Sayulita and will be holding a fundraiser for it March 1st at Splashlight Studios (75 Varick St., New York). There will be silent auctions on photographs from top photographers (including many of our own T+L shooters), hotel stays, fashion items, beauty products and more!
