Breaking Away from Beach Shots


posted on 28th of january, 2008

I will have the good fortune to spend a week at what is said to be a very nice resort in Mexico next month. The resort is set on what they call the Maya Riviera.

I have seen many beautiful images of Mayan ruins (see this shot from Kineticimagery), and even more gorgeous photos of Mexican beaches. As always, though, I would like to find a new take on the subjects at hand.

What is still to be shot in this part of the world? Has anyone been down there and thought afterward 'Oh, if only I had thought about THAT?' Or have any designers searched through the Maya Riviera photos and wished there were more photos of something else?

This is very helpful info. So, no fee without a tripod, $300 with a tripod? Very good to know.

If you go to Chichen Itza and want to take "professional" photos you will need to purchase a license. And by professional they mean you are using a tripod. I think it was ~$300.

Also, I found the bus trips to be very slow and time wasteful if i went again I would just hire a cab for the day (you might be able to split it with another guest) and move around on your own time.

I would not have thought of bringing releases in Spanish. Excellent tip. I wonder, though--does Dt accept releases if they are in a language other than English?
