A Partnership of Travel Writing and Photography

Travel writing is just like painting: a travel writer uses a palette of words instead of paints! When you breathe life into a story through your words, readers will want more. Part of the fun of travel writing is sharing your knowledge gained from your experience.

A photograph can tell the whole story or part of the story. What is that saying? “A picture is worth a 1,000 words” means photographs can tell a story just like words do. Like a travel writer, the photographer must decide how much of the story is told by the image. What does this mean? Photographs can enhance and complement your travel article.
