Building Cultural Friendships with Photography

As a photographer you’re probably always looking for ways to expand your subject range, or trying to find new ways to shoot your favorite genre with a twist. That means your neighborhood has been thoroughly explored, your family has seen less of you in person, and more of you behind a lens and any event, big or small, is an opportunity. One great solution is to travel!
But translating your passion from your local environment that you know so well, to a place that you have never been, much less don’t speak the language or have any idea about their culture, can be intimidating to say the least. Even more, travelling is expensive so making the most of it is now more important than ever. Don’t worry, your camera can be a great tool to help you integrate into a situation that will give you great shots, and wonderful memories that may last long after your holiday ends.
