My Photo Editor Mind- Are you a travel photographer?

There is a big difference between a travel photographer and someone who has taken some photos while on vacation. A travel photographer has a point of view and says something about where they have been. There is intent and purpose to the images. A photographer who took a vacation, shot some images, and then posted them on their website under travel…well, generally the photos are lacking and are usually not of the best quality. All they really show me is that you went on vacation, that’s it. This is not to say you can’t take great images while on vacation. It just doesn’t make you a travel photographer.
