Few people like it out as their interest in photography, but few people desire to become a travel photographer as it offers them with an opportunity to show their work to the world. An experienced travel photographer believes in proper planning for the photo shoot at various interesting places around the world. First of all it is very important to choose your equipment wisely so that you can meet your objective of clicking a perfect picture. It is very important to have an idea and knowledge about the subject that the photographer wants to capture in his camera. It requires proper ideas as simply taking pictures of that place will serve no purpose.

The photographer needs to click several pictures of the subject from all the aspects. It is very important for a photographer to stay alert while travelling.

Welcome To Shoot It Share It

Welcome to our website. It is our pleasure to give an opportunity to discuss what kinds of things people have shot. It doesn’t matter if it’s a gun or a camera, we will get all kinds of different experiences throughout the United States. Sometimes we might get a few experiences from other countries, but mostly the U. S.

I have experienced more shootings with a camera rather than a gun. I started using a camera from when I was 10 years old. My parents gave me my first camera for Christmas. It was those old Polaroid cameras. Yes, the ones where you get your photo printed instantly! My room was filled with these photos.

As the years passed by, technology got better but my love for shooting photos was still the same. I was fortunate to travel most of the United States. I got a chance to take thousands of photos and make a pretty good collection out of it. I took all kinds of pictures from the beautiful scenery of Alaska to the Magical World of Disney in Florida.

I took pictures of Mother Nature at a calm level (Hawaiian beaches). I also took pictures of Mother Nature at a violent level (200 mph tornadoes in Oklahoma).

I took pictures of kids playing soccer at a local field in Idaho. I also took pictures of elderly people playing chess in a care home in Detroit, Michigan.

These are experiences that I will never forget and have proof to show what I did. It will definitely bring memories that will last a lifetime.
