As a lifelong solo traveler myself, I know too well that if you’re not able to make use of a tripod and self-timer, you’re not likely to have many photos of yourself on your travels around the world. As I grow older, I regret not having more photographs of myself in far-flung, vibrant and interesting places (and war zones/areas of political unrest - also worth photographing). Hiring a professional is the ideal solution. I’ve photographed every type of solo traveler; from travel bloggers needing professional images, to people who have experienced life-changing events and are stepping out into the world alone for the first time in their lives.
Traveling alone can be as challenging as it is rewarding; putting the best memories in the hands of a professional leaves you free to explore, enjoy, engage, lose your camera or be bedridden for a week with food poisoning - and whatever else comes your way.
