Open Post: What’s Your Dream Photography Destination?

Where would you travel with your camera given time and budget?

Dream Photo Locations
This is not my dream photography location. This is New Jersey.

This time of year, serious wanderlust starts to set in. I love my job here at, but there are times when the urge to pick up a camera and head off somewhere on a photo journey gets to be almost overwhelming. Naturally, that leads to a little bit of daydreaming, which is where today’s Open Post comes in.

Where is your dream location for photography?

Let’s assume you have a few weeks off for vacation and that you have a reasonable budget (and no, you’re not allowed to say, “I’ll take my budget to B&H and buy a bunch of new camera stuff”). Which destination would you pick and why?

My personal choice would be Whistler in Vancouver, BC, Canada. I’m a big mountain bike nerd and that’s pretty much the epicenter of the mountain bike world, at least here in North America. I’m not a big landscape guy, but I feel like I could get some landscapes, as well as some action shots, and a few portraits. I wouldn’t bring a lot of gear because wearing a pack full of cameras while hitting the trails is tough, but I would want to shoot some off-camera flash as well.

So, where’s your dream location? Do you have a plan to get there in your lifetime?
