Travel doesn't make a photographer, but what I photographer can make during travel can be marvalous. Photographers do not need to be be passionate travelers, as some can be more focused or passionate about the things around them and every day life... but someone with the photographic eye can really capture the beauty of travel, so I can see how those who are photographers can become more passionate about travel along with it.
I'm so gutted that I didn't really become interested in photography until I embarked on a world trip - I thought the pictures I took were amazing.....until I developed a more critical eye on DT.....so only a handful of the thousands of pictures I took were actually any good (and in my portfolio :o) )
Travel certainly brought out the photographer in me, it's just a shame that I had to make all of my mistakes on my big adventure! .....So it's a good excuse to do it again I guess :o)
I agree, I find travel and photography to go hand in hand. I also agree with David in saying it can be frustrating when time and weather do not allow for capturing the images we desire while on a trip.
When you go to new places its not always easy to get the weather and light and time to be right. Sometimes its easier to get images near home where you can choose time and light and weather ! But I understand your words and empathise with them 'travel to take photos'......... David.
