The travel photography bucket list for 2022

As an adventure photographer, you should know that the trip is just as important as the destination. I want to capture your experience for you to enjoy for a lifetime, so I’ll be happy to travel along with you and your group.

The best travel photography destinations are the ones that have unique and beautiful landscapes and architecture, with a rich culture and history to match. Here are our top picks for your next trip:

Northern Lights

Northern lights (Aurora Borealis) are spectacular natural light displays created by collisions between charged electrons and atoms in the upper atmosphere. You’ve probably seen pictures of them – they’re the pictures that look like a canvas painted with a greenish-white paint brush, but taken with an ordinary camera. The aurora borealis is most visible near the North Pole, but can be seen from much of northern Europe and Alaska. Iceland is particularly well-known for its stunning displays of the aurora borealis (as well as stunning landscapes in general).

Cars of Cuba

Cars of Cuba is a time capsule to 1950s America, when cars were new and shiny, before they were covered up by dust. In this small town in Cuba called Havana, you can find dozens of old American cars from the fifties parked on the streets on a daily basis.They’re also referred to as “Yank Tanks”, since most of these cars were made by US companies like Buick, Cadillac.

Arches National Park – Utah

The most famous of all American parks is also one of the most beautiful. With more than 2,000 natural rock arches and dozens of deep canyons, Arches National Park was created in 1971 to preserve the natural wonders of this spectacular region.

Statue of Liberty – New York

The Statue of Liberty is an icon of freedom and democracy. Standing tall on Liberty Island in New York Harbor, this colossal sculpture represents hope to millions around the globe. It is an icon of New York City, but many people don’t realize that it has a beautiful island park surrounding it where you can get great photos of Lady Liberty herself. It’s also a great place to capture views of Manhattan in the background!

Iceland

Iceland is one of those places that’s so amazing it needs no introduction. It’s a photographer’s dream location with its otherworldly landscapes and dramatic coastlines. Amazing waterfals, glaciers and lava fields are among its wonders waiting to be photographed.

Yosemite

The Yosemite National Park is one of the most popular parks in the world, and for good reason. It’s home to some of the most iconic views on Earth. There are plenty of hiking trails and backpacking trips to take when visiting Yosemite, as well as plenty of campgrounds if you want to stay overnight.

This park has a lot of different things to capture, including waterfalls and lakes. The best time of year to visit Yosemite is in spring or fall when there are fewer tourists but it is still warm enough for people who live in colder climates to enjoy themselves. Some of the best spots include El Capitan, Half Dome and Bridalveil Fall.

The Colosseum – Italy

If you’re US based and never had the chance to travel all the way across the ocean for a vacation, then you should definitely consider going to Italy at least once in your lifetime. The Colosseum is one of the most famous attractions in Rome, and it’s an absolute must-see if you’re in town. If you can’t afford tickets (which aren’t cheap), then there are also free tours available that will show you around this ancient amphitheater.

Death Valley – California

If you love deserts and cacti, then Death Valley is definitely an area that you need to visit at least once during your life time. This national park has plenty of hiking trails and scenic viewpoints where visitors can take breathtaking photos of this desert landscape. Death Valley National Park has an incredible landscape that looks straight out of science fiction movies: salt flats, sand dunes, canyons and mountains with snow on them year round! 

The Isle of Skye – Scotland

The Isle of Skye is one of the most beautiful places in Scotland, and one of my favourite places to photograph. The scenery is amazing and there are always so many different types of landscapes to shoot. It’s also a great place for portraits as well as landscapes.

Scottish landscape

Banff – Canada

Banff National Park is one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever been to. The Canadian Rockies are absolutely gorgeous and full of wildlife, including bears – so be sure to bring bear spray!

Cliffs of Moher – Ireland

The Cliffs of Moher are another must-see when you visit Ireland. They offer some amazing views, as well as plenty of opportunities for photography.
