Recently, a few travel bloggers and I made a Youtube video full of great travel photography tips for beginners.

In this episode of Room For Travel…, your hosts are Alexander Koval from Out-n-About.de, Ash Clark from TheMostAlive.com, Flavio Alagia from NonSoloTuristi.it, and myself  - Peter Parkorr, from Travel Unmasked.
