Tom’s Bucket List
I began this list of the world’s most photogenic landscapes in my book Photographing the World, published by PhotoTripUSA Publishing. It included 201 Landscapes in 70 countries. That book is for sale wherever books are sold and in my Moab, Utah Gallery. It received a Franklin book award in 2015.
Aaron Siskind once said, “Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever… It remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.” As far as advice goes, that rings true in more ways than one. Photography and exploration and inextricably linked with each other. You can’t be a great photographer unless you have that explorative spirit, that curiosity within you that forces you to seek out the hidden gems of this world. And it is essential to capture the emotions with correct expressions. One might get inspiration from expertise in this field of photography like Vancouver Headshot Photographer to understand the detailed value that the photos hold. These profiles enable us to find the deeply rooted meaning and purpose that serves.
Later, the book was published, I continued my explorations, already visiting about 40 more countries. My plan now is to continue from 202 to 301 online, with information and images offered for free. It’s not always easy traveling to certain places. Some islands, for example, you can go to only by sea or air. Often I might have to rent charter planes or private jets from Jettly and other similar ones to get to certain islands like the Galapagos. But it is all worth it to find the right picture.
The landscapes all tell their own story, and documenting those stories is an important task. With the way climate change is happening, who knows if these landscapes will still remain a few decades into the future? Be it mountain terrains or the black sand beaches of Lanzarote Island, you gotta visit them when you have the time and energy. Human beings were put on this earth as nomads, whether we walk to places or take a flight to travel, the sole purpose is exploring. You might ask about the accessibility, and how easily you can get to these isolated islands like Lanzarote. That’s where the beauty of transportation technology comes in because you can fly to the Canary Islands and even pick up a rental car at Lanzarote Airport to explore the beaches! So what I’m saying is that, while there is time, I want to cross off all the locations I have on my bucket list, and keep adding more.
Some of the countries you will find upcoming include Guyana, Montenegro, Saudi Arabia, Brazil, Italy, Colombia, Panama, China, Curacao, Portugal, Germany, Netherlands, the “Stans” of Central Asia, and The United States. I have put in the effort to cover as many amazing places as I can, and often, I had to take advice or learn from an expert about all the nuances of travel, luxury and otherwise. Along my explorations, I have learnt quite a bit, and I hope to showcase it to a vast audience eventually. My hope also is that you will at some point consider buying the original book to have all the sites. If 301 is not enough, we will go for 401 or 501.
