"Capturing the world with Nick Rains - The Art and Practice of Travel Photography"
There’s more to the practice of travel photography than just pressing the button on your camera.
It’s about making sure you are in the right place at the right time – and knowing what to do when you get there. Australian documentary photographer and Leica Akademie Instructor Nick Rains shares his experiences of shooting fine travel images from his 30+ years of professional practice.
Using his own photos as examples, Nick takes you beyond the technical detail of your camera and into what you really need to know to get memorable travel photos. Street photography, close ups, portraits, landscapes, lighting situations and getting consent are just a few of the many scenarios Nick covers, together with valuable information on how to achieve the best results from your equipment.
Topics covered include:
• The essentials skills for Travel Photography
• Preparing for the shoot, what kit to take, what to do on the day.
• Stories behind his pictures.
• Maximizing the potential for great images
• Preferred equipment
• Editing and cataloguing in the field
In addition to his role in running the Leica Akademie in Australia as Principal Instructor he is currently working on a book titled Aerial Australia, which will be his 14th hardback photography book. His photographs have been featured in publications such as Australian Geographic, Australian Photography Magazine, Sports Illustrated, Australian Geographic, Reader’s Digest and more. He has photographed a range of subjects, including sport, news, celebrities, industry, travel, fashion and portraits, as well as worked for commercial clients such as Shell, BBC, Orion, Ponant and the Australian Government.
