These Breathtaking Photos Will Make You Want to Become a Travel Photographer

It seems these days anyone with an Instagram filter and a decent smartphone can call themselves a photographer, but that’s not always the case. Sometimes it’s the models you’re gifted with or the location that can turn an amatuer into a professional in the matter of moments.

Lavender Fields of Provence, Southern France

This was the first photo I came across and I instantly wanted to know more about the location.

This takes place in Southern France. The lavender fields of Provence is enchanting, isn’t it?

Paris in the Fall

I think we are in agreement any time of the season could be romantic in Paris, but there’s something special about autumn leaves in front of the most romantic structure in the world.

You could spend an evening snuggling up with a special someone in the crisp air and take an iconic photo under the Eiffel Tower.

You have seen the villas on the water all over the internet. Each time you say to yourself “I wish I was there right now.”

Located in the South Pacific, the St. Regis Bora Bora Resort has everything you would want in a tropical getaway including gourmet meals and the bluest water you have ever seen. You wake up, walk out and are immediately surrounded by exotic fish and sting rays.

Aspen, Colorado

I’m a sucker for a fire on a cold day. Aspen, Colorado is known as one of the “must visits” during the winter, and rightfully so. The biggest celebrities make their way to the posh town during the cold months and not many can argue that a day spent on a mountain skiing and finishing it off with a warm beverage is anything but amazing.

Forbes pointed out the streets of Cuba, and in just one photo you can feel the colorful and lively atmosphere of the historic country. Part of that history is because the only cars Cuban citizens can own legally are cars created and bought before 1959 which is okay. It brings more of a “travel in time” feel.

The food and entertainment is beyond phenomenal; and since some dancers make more than doctors in the country, you will not be let down.

Canal City, Italy

The combination of the architecture and the beautiful blue water makes Canal City (Venice) in Italy one of the most breathtaking places in the world. It’s well-known and is visited by about 50,000 tourists a day. Just don't leave without taking a gondola ride.
