5 Travel Photographers You Should Know About

5 Travel Photographers You Should Know About, Photo: Anthony EpesWhat could be better inspiration for planning your next trip than browsing the sites of a few of the world's best photographers? Here's a list of five of my favourite photographers with their lenses turned toward some of the world's most interesting subject matter.
 
Anthony Epes
The early bird not only catches the worm. It also gets the best shot. The bird in this case is “Cities and Dawn” photographer Anthony Epes. Originally from California, Anthony is a London-based photographer who has been based there since being commissioned for his first book London at Dawn. Anthony’s second book of the series Paris at Dawn soon followed along with an updated version of London at Dawn. Anthony currently rises and shines in a number of cities such as Venice, Istanbul and New York. For samples of his photography, details about his books, and info about his “at dawn” photography workshops go to citiesatdawn.com.
 
Brandon Stanton 
Brandon Stanton is the prolific shutterbug behind the popular Humans of New York photography blog. In his own words: "After I lost my trading job, I decided to move to New York City and take portraits of strangers on the street. Mom wasn’t too happy about that decision, but so far it’s gone pretty well. I’ve taken nearly 5,000 portraits and written 50 stories. And I’ve met some amazing people along the way." See some of the amazing people Brandon's met at humansofnewyork.com.

David Solomons
British street photographer David Solomons has been “photographing in London for a long time and still [gets] excited about finding new things to shoot here.” When not shooting in London, he's been known to take his camera abroad, always seeming to capture poignant moments in perfectly lit settings as if he had a pause button for the planet. Have a look for yourself at davidsolomons.com.
 
Ken Kaminesky
In the minds of many travel photographers professional and amateur, Ken Kaminesky is living the dream. His photography has been featured in the pages and on the cover of National Geographic magazine. He also shoots for agencies such as Alamy, Jupiterimages, Corbis and Getty Images. His blog at kenkaminesky.com is “part of my journey to see the world in a new way and share that vision with you. Whether you're into photography or not, his blog is worth for the inspiration of seeing the work of someone who truly loves what he does for a living.
 
Mark Alor Powell
Mark Alor Powell is an American photographer based in Mexico City specializing in location work throughout Latin America. When not shooting, or getting published in a number of catalogues and photo books or exhibiting his work, Mark teaches a street photography workshop in Mexico City and offer lectures and presentations around the world.
