For centuries, the ocean has inspired people across the world. Travel photographers, in particular, have taken some of their most moving and powerful images by the coast. In light of this, we thought this new Cruise.co.uk competition was a great opportunity for any readers interested in photography to showcase their best work.
New Mexico is an amazing state in the USA, located alongside Arizona, Colorado, Oklahoma, Texas, and Utah – it also shares part of its borders with Mexico. It's both the desert, and the oasis, presenting visitors of its lands the chance to stay or to go, as many artists and creatives have been famed for doing, while offering ample adventure opportunities for those individuals seeking an escape from the city, or for a much deeper connection. Whatever you seek, New Mexico provides. I traveled through New Mexico in April of 2014, along my USA road trip, and I can say without a doubt, that it's one of my favorite places in the world – it's loaded with unique towns, amazing history, gorgeous natural physique, and has everything to satisfy an artist, for all that one could ever need, be it inspiration or enlightenment is provided here. You will now see a collection of images from my travels through New Mexico – I hope they inspire and awe... Enjoy. =)
A common question that I receive from my readers here on Eye & Pen, is typically ‘How do I master my travel photos, as you have?’ So I thought it prudent to put together this short guide for all of you out there that are curious on how to improve your photography…
If there's a good time to take photos, it's when you're traveling. Still, which camera should you bring along? That largely depends on where you're going and what you're doing, but a good rule of thumb is to leave extremely expensive electronics behind.

When I was getting ready to depart from Columbus, Ohio's International airport in April of last year – I was off to trek around Europe for the following 8-months – my flight to Barcelona was canceled, because of an American Airlines computer system error. In fact, they ended up canceling all of their flights in the eastern-USA for the entire day. I was put up in a hotel for the night and set to leave the next morning. The problem was that I lost a sizable amount of money from having to miss my booking and reservations, for when I was supposed to arrive on time. Luckily for me, AA issued a flight voucher in my name for a total credit of $500, so long-story-short, I was able to get myself to Aruba!
