A selection of the best travel photos we could find
It’s easy to get caught up in what you’re doing with your own photography that sometimes we forget to step back and take in what other people around us are creating. So we picked out 10 of the best travel photos from across the internet so you can get inspired to challenge yourself and become a better photographer.
The 10 photos below are by talented photographers from all over the world.
The best travel photos result from years of hard work and dedication. You should be inspired when you see an amazing image even though it’s easy to think to yourself that you may never be able to get to that level. We’ve all been there no mater what industry you’re in, you look around and think how am I ever going to be able to compete with such a high standard?
Well the thing you don’t see is the thousands of burner images these photographers will have taken, that have never seen the light of day, before they got to the one you’re seeing.
Everyone has to go on their own journey so use other people’s work as inspiration, something to draw from and build on. It’s good to search the internet for other people’s images whether that be on Instagram, Flickr or right here on WTP.
Hopefully this helps to motivate you to get into travel photography and feed your passion.

I’m a professional travel photographer, and I’ve been living the digital nomad lifestyle since 2016. I make money by working on client assignments, selling stock photography and helping other photographers by sharing my experiences on this website. I move around at my own pace (I hate fast-paced travel) and like to spend a few months getting to know each place I base myself in.
My writing and photos have been featured on industry leading websites such as Digital Photography School, Atlas Obscura and the world’s leading underwater photography resource The Underwater Photography Guide. I authored an eBook called “Breaking Into Travel Photography: The complete guide to carving out a career in travel photography” that has been published on Amazon. My stock images have also appeared in ads promoting destinations and companies that sometimes has been a surprise, even to me. But I guess that’s the nature of stock photography, you never know who will license them!
I’m always happy to connect, so feel free to reach out!
