In years gone by, travel was more about pilgrimage as a religious journey with pilgrims seeking a change in their lives. Then there was the Grand Tour with the elite classes indulging on educational and cultural expeditions. Nowadays travel is all about escape, experience and discovery in the hope we can leave something behind as we explore unfamiliar lands, forging new memories and learning that bit more about ourselves.
This interactive evening workshop explores how the communication industry uses travel imagery as a means to communicate these ideas and emotions. We’ll explore:
- What type of imagery is most commonly sought after and why?
- What are the markets for travel imagery?
- How does advertising uses travel imagery?
- What are the attributes of successful commercial travel images?
- How can images get seen and ideally used?
