Traveler Writer/Photographer

Industry: Hospitality
Area: Tourism Services

Travel writers and photographers either propose a topic or are assigned one, often by an editor or publisher. They gather information about the topic through personal observation, library and Internet research, and interviews. Writers then select the material they want to use, organize it, and use the written word to express ideas and convey information. Travel Photographers need both technical expertise and creativity. Producing a successful picture requires choosing and presenting a subject to achieve a particular effect, and selecting the appropriate equipment. Many writers and photographers work on a freelance basis.


Travel writers and photographers usually hold a bachelor's degree and have experience in the tourism industry.


Income for travel writers and photographers vary widely and no wage or salary data is available.
