I was recently on holiday with my family – it was a total treat, and I’m super grateful that we were able to spend this time together visiting friends and exploring new parts of the world!
Plus as a photographer what more could I ask for… beautiful scenery and action packed days of adventure and travel!
Yet I have a confession to make! & I’m hoping you can relate… but I just don’t take my camera everywhere… because sometimes its too heavy, I’m too tired, and … it drives my family crazy!
So I make the call and leave it home and rely on my trusty iphone for anything gorgeous that needs to be captured!
So for inspiration and to help you with your own holiday photography I’ve put together a series of posts to share with you the tips and tricks for making the most of your vacation snaps. How to take photos you love of all those memories, whilst keeping your sanity (and not driving your family mad with all your photo requests)
My biggest hack of all… Drive-By Style!
Sometimes we pull over and I take a quick snap..
sometimes I sigh and think ‘that’d be gorgeous, but we’re not stopping now’ & other times…
I just fling that camera straight out the window and start shooting!
But more often than not I can still capture a beautiful image and a recording of a view and place that we’ve visited, albeit it might be a brief drive-by experience, but the photos don’t have to suffer!

Louise, photography and my holidays go hand in hand but sometimes I do let the photography side take over and regret it. I usually do organised tours which give you some free time to wander and I love that time for taking photos. When actually touring though it’s usually a rush and everyone trying to get that perfect shot.
I take my dslr and sometimes it is so heavy but I don’t want to miss out. I usually only take one lens though. I find it very hard to see the screen on my phone for photos.
However I always take way too many photos and when I get home they sit on the computer for ever. I keep meaning to make photo books but then find it too hard to choose which photos to use so end up not doing them.
I really need to realise that my memories are more important than getting that perfect photo (which always eludes me anyway) and just leave the camera behind/in the hotel room some of the time.
