Alaska Travel Photography

Expert Advice on Taking Better Travel Photos

The photos above won grand prize honors in a recent Fodor's photo contest, in which we asked our members to show us their very best snapshots of Alaska. We love these images by Chris Marlow and Brian Embacher so much that we will be including them in Fodor's Alaska 2009.

Our tips will help you take great photographs like these. For example, by including two human figures in the frame, the glacier image above conveys the vast scale of the Alaskan landscape. Meanwhile, the image on the right is a good example of creating your own luck and being prepared to capture spontaneous events you might not see back home. You can see more great Alaska contest photos when you visit our Alaska travel guide.

With photographer Jeff Wignall and Fodor's as your guide, memorable photographs are well within your reach. We invite you to explore our easy-to-follow tips with accompanying images—you'll be taking great photos in no time.
