There is nothing more engaging than a person who is on their path and following their passion. Ugo Cei an Italian travel and landscape photographer and educator who's expertise and enthusiasm for teaching and inspiring others is truly energising. With Co-host Ralph Velasco a travel photography instructor, author and international guide, he publishes a weekly podcast about travel photography. Every week, they pick the brains of famous and not-so-famous travel photographers to learn what it means to travel for the love of photography and photograph for the love of travel.
You know, travel photography is all about the people, the food, the architecture, and the culture that make each place a special one. It mixes elements of landscape photography, portraiture and reportage and aims to combine all of these and paint a compelling picture of what it’s like to live in a foreign country.
Travel photography instructor, author and international guide, Ralph has organized and led a variety of cultural tours around the world, including to Egypt, Mexico’s Copper Canyon, Bhutan, Nepal, Cambodia, Iceland, Central Europe, Morocco, Vietnam, the Adriatic, Romania, Turkey, Spain, Death Valley, Chicago and San Francisco and others. Additionally, as of this writing he’s organized and led more than a dozen fully-licensed People-to-People programs to Cuba.
On Wednesday 5th I will be recording an episode of The Travelling Image Makers Podcast. In the mean time please check out the latest episodes here.
You can also join the Facebook group Travelling Image Makers Corner for monthly competitions and a great community of like-minded travel photographers from masters of their craft to beginners looking to get started.
