TOURISM PHOTOGRAPHY ~ THE UNFORGIVING ART
As mentioned elsewhere on this site, we work hand-in-glove with a world class video outfit and we have to admit a degree of envy in one respect.
Not in terms of their productions. We prize one highly-selected moment over the thousands of fleeting images. (Read Susan Sontag’s On Photography if you really want to know what we are talking about).
But those guys can come in, wave a lens in the general direction of the tourist attraction and all the grubby bits, the ugly signposts and satellite dishes get lost in the fast-moving edit which doesn’t allow the human eye to linger long enough to take on board these flies in the ointment.
Not so for the stills photographer. He produces an image which the viewer’s eye can linger on at length. Scanning for beauty and unconsciously picking up the flaws too.
So it pays for tourism photographers to have a slightly obsessive aspect to their personality.
And it pays for tourist boards and tourist attractions to select such photographers for their shoots.
