How To Take Better Travel Photos

Conde Nast Traveler

By Kate Maxwell, Condé Nast Traveler

Unhappy with your vacation snapshots? We tapped photographer Craig Easton for his best travel photo tips. Easton, who's won various kudos including the Cutty Sark Award for Travel Photographer of the Year, was recently tapped by InterContinental Hotels to serve as photographer-in-residence for a few of the brand's European properties. That means that if you book a Weekend Escape package at select hotels, you'll get a master class with the snapper himself. For the rest of us without hotel reservations, Easton shares his best advice for taking the best travel photos, whether you want to Instagram them or not.
