Reasons to Hire a Photographer for Your Solo Travel
There’s nothing simpler than taking a solo photo with the help of your smartphone. But are you sure that the shoot will reflect all the beauty of the place and your emotions on that day and in that location? Probably, not. Here are some more reasons to consider hiring a solo traveler photographer instead of relying on your tools.
1. A Professional Touch
No matter how good you are at taking selfies, there is always a risk of looking too amateur in your photos. If you wish to surprise and stun your relatives or Instagram followers, it’s always better to arrange a professional photo session and get some edited photos with an expert approach than to flood your account with dozens of similar smartphone pics.
While a selfie may look great at times, it’s still super hard to capture both the beauty of the place and you amid that beauty. Bothering pedestrians with a request to take several shoots is also not the best idea, as most of them will hardly take a decent shoot. As soon as you hire a professional photographer to take photos for you, you’re guaranteed an ideal balance between the backdrop and you.
3. Original Solo Photo Shoot Ideas
As a tourist, you hardly know all the ins and outs of the city you’re visiting. Don’t limit your photo records from the solo trip only to the most widespread and famous tourist spots. Hire a local photographer and explore the hidden shades of the city together with him or her – you’ll get an authentic feel of the destination and gorgeous photos to show to your family and friends upon return home.

This type of photo session is organized for one person in a certain location, with portraits of that person taken against a variety of backdrops and in a variety of poses.
The first thing you may want to ask is about the time of receiving the ready photos. It’s understandable as being in a foreign country and planning to leave for the homeplace soon, you want to be sure about the waiting times and deadlines of the photos’ delivery. With Wander Way, you’ll never have any problems in this regard as we deliver professionally retouched photos within 5 days after the photoshoot. You can view them in the private gallery on the website. You should also tell your photographer about the location and theme of the photo session you want to organize.
The best timing for a solo traveler photoshoot is the so-called golden hours (the time after sunrise and before sunset). If you have any special preferences, you may still choose different timing (e.g., the night hours or a hot beach photo session in the daytime).
Study some solo photo shoot ideas online to choose the ones that call to you. It’s always better to come to a photo session with some ideas and preferences in mind to guide your photographer and to avoid any confusion about the photo shoot’s outcomes.
It depends on the season and your individual preferences. A universal tip is to avoid too bright colors in your outfit, not to overuse the accessories, and to avoid wearing glasses. The safest choices are for mild-toned, light clothing.
The whole idea of finding the photographer on the other half of the world sounds scary, but being able to find them all on one website simplifies the process. It was our first photo shoot ever and we were not sure how it’s gonna go. However, the photos turned out so beautiful and communication throughout the whole process was on point. Definitely recommend Wander Way to everyone! Read testimonials on Facebook
