: Great travel photography can evoke a range of emotions and usually ends in that feeling of ‘itchy feet.’ CPN writer Ian Farrell applies the foot powder and talks to Canon Explorer Joel Santos about a recent trip to Patagonia with the EOS 6D DSLR…
The urge to travel goes hand in glove with a need to take pictures. A perfect example of this can be found in Joel Santos, a 35-year-old travel photographer from Lisbon, Portugal, who has explored dozens of locations throughout the world, in Europe, South America, and across Asia.
Joel, who worked as an economist before he sidestepped into the photographic industry, has enjoyed travelling from an early age. “I was fortunate that my parents loved to travel, so I had the chance to see some amazing places as a child,” he says, explaining that it wasn’t until 2003, after he had qualified with a masters degree in economics, that he thought of working in photography.
“I was working for a while in East Timor, near Indonesia, teaching economics at university,” he continues. “My passion for photography grew during this time, and it was only natural that it joined up with the love for travel I’d developed by living abroad.” Now Joel makes a living from his photography, splitting his time between organising workshops and tours, writing about the destinations that he visits and shooting stunning images of people places and culture.
