Welcome to our travel and location photography special. This month we present photo journeys that take you to towns big and small as well as trails and rails in the US and across the globe. We also have an informative insider’s report from pro photographers who expose business tips that you need to know in order to make travel photography a successful endeavor. In addition, we tested a range of products that you’ll want to take on the road this summer, including the Calumet Genesis 300 B monolight, the Nikon D7000, and the Tamron 18-270mm VC lens.
