Travel photography can be like photojournalism.

When you’re visiting a far-off place, with your camera in hand, you’re often trying to tell a story — a story of this amazing place you’re in, and the sights and sounds and feelings you’ve experienced there.




Photo Dojo is a publication focused on sharing great articles written by talented photographers around the world. We publish anything from tutorials and gear discussion to photo essays and philosophical articles.
