Nature, Travel and Outdoor Photography

This section is for people who love to travel and take photos of our amazing world


Photography Collection

The photography collection encompasses award-winning and significant works by our world's most illustrious photographers, publications and prominent photography stock houses and celebrates the rich diversity of unique photographic subject matter including Nature, Travel, Sports, Black and White photography. Explore National Geographic, Lonely Planet, Associated Press and many more. All images are printed on archival photographic paper resulting in vivid, pure colour and exceptional detail that are suitable for museum or gallery display and available for purchase in multiple sizes.

Display enlarged photos properly framed and matted. When displaying your photos it is best to group all black and white or all colour photos together. Groupings look better if the photos have a common subject matter e.g. a series of waterfalls, flowers etc. One of the biggest mistakes that people make is having too many photo frames on a wall. You should have at least two inches of wall showing between each of your photos for your display to look organised and neat. Donít be afraid to mix and match sizes with photo frames on one wall. Placing two larger frames in a diagonal can be enhanced with two smaller pictures placed in the opposite direction diagonally. Mixing up sizes creates interest in the wall.

Photographing Waterfalls - The highest waterfall in the world is Angel Falls in Venezuela, South America. It measures 3.212 ft (979 meters). Getting a good photo of Angel Falls could be a challenge simply because it is so high. You have to get the right lens, probably a wide angle lens, and you must find the right position from which to shoot. This waterfall is nearly a kilometre in height. Not everyone wants to travel to Venezuela to capture the world's highest falls, but photographing waterfalls is fun and rewarding when you see the results of your efforts in print. Read

Motion and action photography Motion and action photography - For the most part, the world around us is in motion. Some things move slowly while some move faster. Slow moving things are plants, turtles, snails etc. Fast moving things are baseballs, cars, ocean waves etc. As photographers we thrive to capture every detail and display it via our photos.

Insect Photography

Insect photography - Photographing insects although not glamorous sounding, can be rewarding and easy if you plan your shot and research locations, habits and ecosystems. Most insects have short life spans. From days or weeks most will only be available during short times during the year. The first step is to decide what types of insects you are looking to photograph. Do they live near water, are they diurnal or nocturnal, what attracts them, as well as the time of the year. Some insects are primarily adapted to a season and will only be readily visible then.
