These days, our world allows many people access to a camera, whether it be a DSLR or your smartphone, and it naturally follows that we would document our travels with photography. We ourselves at Passion Passport started with a mission to inspire people to travel, all through the storytelling that photography provides. In this week’s chat, we want to get back to our roots and ask: what makes an amazing travel image? What does it take to inspire you?

Join us this Thursday, May 19 at 2pm ET as we chat about why we create inspiring travel images, share our favorite photos, and maybe even pick up some tips!
