Around the world in 2000 pictures

We've already had our trip around the world with the striking photoart of Corinne Vionnet and maybe some of you heard of "Le Flâneur", a stunning video of Paris created by combining 2,000 photos of the city of love by night. And now, within my arm-chair wanderlust last night, I came across "Around the world in 2000 pictures", a photo journey through 8 cities[...]

Capturing the Northern Lights

When the nights are long, and sunlight is scarce, there is one natural phenomenon that lights up my spirit. I'm talking about the aurora borealis (or northern/polar lights). Coming from Norway I've experienced this magic light a few times, but it never stops to amaze me. It is more beautiful than anything man can make, and not even the best fireworks in the [...]

An ode to Christchurch

A devastating  6.3 magnitude earthquake hit New Zealand's bustling city, Christchurch, on February 22nd 2011. News coverage dominated all Australian television and the reports drove in how devastating the damage was: 300 were reported missing and the damage is estimated to be between $10 - $12 billion.

Photo Opportunities - A trip around the world with Corinne Vionnet

When we travel, sightseeing mostly involves seeing a monument and taking a picture. But there are millions of us traveling. Millions of us seeing that exact monument, and millions of us taking the same picture. The result is a massive bunch of the one and the same picture, just differing in small details like people walking around, perspective, weather condi[...]

Sonic Iceland

It all started on a cold and miserable winter morning in 2009 in Cologne, Germany. Marcel is meeting Kai, his former flatmate who wants to go on a very special trip with him. A few months later, in summer 2010, they are travelling to Iceland. With the help of Icelandic partners and donations from all over the world they were able to realise their idea of a d[...]

Hello New York City Love

Today I'd like to introduce you to a project about love. And New York. Hellonewyorkcitylove is a photography blog, runned by Charlotte Schreiber and Kerstin Müller, two amazing German photographers. Originally knowing each other just from sight at their home university, they met again this summer in New York, both doing internships. I've been following th[...]

Things to do with your travel photos

Having just finished a 2-month trip around Central America, my computer now is in possession of 2.493 more pictures. Wonderful, lovely memories that will last a lifetime and that I cannot wait to show to my friends and family, but what's the best way to present them? An online photo gallery? A stack of prints? Or are there maybe more original ways of showing[...]

Our recent travel photographer discovery is Akasha Rabut, from New Orleans. She works in the photography department at the Historic New Orleans Collection and does freelance photography on the side. Originally from Kauai, Hawaii she traveled a lot through North America and took some really amazing shots on the road. She fascinates with an extraordinary eye f[...]

Notes on Packing the Right Camera

Hey ladies, One of the biggest problems I encounter when packing for trips is not how many pairs of shoes I need or what shades of nail polish to leave home. No, I struggle the most with exactly what combination of cameras and gear to bring along. We Travelettes are very passionate about our photography and while we recognize that it's ultimately up the p[...]
