Are you looking for ideas of what to shoot? For this month’s stock photo requests we’re focusing on travel. So if you’re planning your trips for 2018, read on! Hopefully we can help you with some inspiration, here are some of the gaps in our collection.

A shoot idea which isn’t specific to any location is off the beaten track travel, telling a story, local people, really capturing the feel of a certain place (and if you can get model releases from the local people – even better!)
