In Episode 57 of The Thoughtful Travel podcast Amanda talks about taking photos of people on your travels, by chatting with a couple of photographers she knows who volunteer with her for the Fremantle International Portrait Prize. She always feels like photographers are particularly good at being thoughtful travellers because they are always trying to get into the minds of the locals to get the best, most telling photographs in different places around the world.
Amanda chats first with Lawrie Beilin, who has a wide range of excellent tips on breaking the ice and getting good photographs of people you meet on your travels. Secondly, Amanda hears a story from photographer Dale Neill who really has a knack for getting people to create amazing portrait images. She’ll also tell you a little about the Fremantle International Portrait Prize in case you want to enter some photographs too.
