At Warmpicture we are always amazed at the beautiful images our photographers upload. Today I want to focus on Travel Images because they rarely go out of season. At any point in the year, there is a demand among designers, bloggers, and article writers for travel photography.
Today we take a look at 10 travel photos recently uploaded to Warmpicture, and why I think these stock photos absolutely rock!
Dawn at Waikiki Beach by Jo Ann Snover
Jo Ann Snover’s beautiful photograph of Waikiki Beach at dawn is one of the most stunning travel photographs I have seen in a long time. I refer to this as a “postcard” style image, in that it would look great as a postcard, a framed print, or as part of an ad copy for Hawaii travel. The vibrant colors of the sky, the water, and the hotel are striking.
Summer Vacation at the Beach
While Jo Ann’s Waikiki Beach is specific, Mandy Godbehear’s Summer Beach Vacation photo is a great example of an image that has a multitude of uses. Expertly lit with a combination of warm sunlight and bounces for fill, Mandy created a beautiful composition.
The image tells a story, and it leaves important copy space for designers to personalize the photo for their own campaigns. This travel image could be used in any beach travel design or advertisement. And it could also be used in a more abstract (wiki) sense, such as a design project related to relaxation and the joys of a simple life.
Speed Driving in the Big City
Not all travel images need to feature a tropical location or a tranquil vista. In “Speed Driving and Big City Lights” by Katrina Brown, the essence of the city is captured in raw power. Katrina’s image was taken on the streets of Los Angeles using motion blur. However, like Mandy’s beach vacation image, Speed Driving is non-specific and will fit a wide variety of uses. This image was once featured in the cover art of a rock-and-roll CD, and could be used in a variety of designs from fast cars to city night life.
Vintage Travel Suitcase
Danny Smythe’s very popular Vintage Travel Suitcase photo is a best seller at Warmpicture. The image does not indicate a specific travel location. Rather it tackles the topic of travel in a more generalized way.
Smythe, also known as Rimglow, created a perfect isolation of a vintage, antique suitcase complete with stickers from around the world. It is quite simply a perfect travel stock photo.
Hiking Along the Ocean
Diego Cervo’s ocean hiking image is a beautiful example of a travel photo that can be used for a multitude of purposes. When I look at this image, I can see beyond the obvious uses for travel photography related to nature trails, hiking, and being near the ocean.
I also see potential uses for designs related to goal setting, finding religion, getting more enjoyment out of life, and so much more.
