Travel Photography for Up Magazine
I am a regular contributor to Europe’s leading inflight magazine: UP. thanks to them I have visited many amazing places on planet Earth. One of the regular jobs I do for UP is photographing for articles in the magazine, which includes a lot of traveling. I was for about one week in Massachusetts or more specifically: Boston, Province Town, and Salem, photographing for the cover theme article. In that issue, I also have an article featuring two actors that starred in the Soprano’s, you can read more about it here. The images I have to capture at these kinds of jobs include street photography, landscape, portraits, interiors, even food photography, I also do a feature for hotels. Basically, everything we do during the trip is being captured. What I like about that type of job is, it takes me back to my early days of photography, where I have only my camera and the subject matter, looking for the best angles and interesting points of view. It brings out the pure essence of photography.
With this post, I am also announcing my new Instagram account that is dedicated to my travels. @joaocarlosphototravel
The magazine is divided into five chapters, each featuring a double spread image in their beginning.
What gear did I take?
Going for a whole week abroad I had to shrink my gear to the most functional and practical mix I could imagine. I decided to take my Fujifilm GFX50s which turned out to be a thing I will do in future trips of the same kind. The dynamic range it has lets me photograph in any conditions with ease and getting amazing results in return. I took my two lenses for it, the 32-64mm which was most of the times on my camera and the 120mm Macro that I planned to use for the food part, but it also helped me capture some amazing shots of Fenway Park. Everything was packed in my ThinkTank Naked ShapeShifter 2 Backpack, and when I was shooting I was using the Think Tank Belt System. I also had My 3LeggedThing Albert Tripod with me and a lot of Sandisk SD cards.
Those are some of my favorite images from the trip.
