What does it take to be a travel photographer? A camera and a good sense of adventure are all you need! Be ready to explore the world and your surroundings, and open your mind and eyes to see images worth capturing, worth keeping and worth sharing. The photos should bring you and the viewer to places they’ve never been before.
AirAsia’s slogan, “Now everyone can fly,” is not just a tagline but a promise. With Air Asia’s year-round promo fares, you can travel more, meet fascinating people, live the dream and create more memories.
This year, AirAsia has teamed up with NIKON to help FOUR lucky people (with zero or little knowledge of photography) experience travel photography accompanied by their own professional “coaches.”
