In a video, Vinod Verma has talked about various aspects of a Career in Travel Photography. Vinod Verma started by explaining Travel Photography as: "Travel photography is a genre of photography that may involve the documentation of an area's landscape, people, cultures, customs and history." It was a very interesting video and I enjoyed watching it.

Challenges are the other side of Positives and this Career is no exception.
And, Vinod Verma believes that one needs to prepare for following Challenges of a Career in Travel Photography:
