Tommy Middaugh, Vice President of Travel To Go Shares All You Need to Know About Treasuring Your Vacation Pictures

Nov 11, 2014 by

Tommy Middaugh of Travel To Go  members capture their memories by taking photos.

Tommy Middaugh of Travel To Go members capture their memories by taking photos.

Tommy Middaugh, Travel To Go Executive believes that taking photos while on vacation is the most common way to document the excitement of the trip. Though we tend to remember the things we liked the most about a location, taking a picture brings it to life and makes it special in a different way. Whether one is a casual picture-taker or a professional photographer, taking photos on a vacation can be enjoyable.

Here are some tips from Tommy Middaugh of Travel To Go to follow for taking photos during the trip.

If you’re bringing a camera, always be sure to bring a travel case for it. When exploring different locations, also be sure that the camera is in this case. The unexpected could always happen, like dropping the camera or something falling on it that can damage it. Bringing a case can help protect it against unexpected damage, not only ruining the ability to take pictures, but also ruining an expensive piece of equipment.

Smart phones can be a great replacement for fancier camera if you don’t want to chance ruining it. Though the picture quality won’t be nearly as nice, it can be a convenient way to take pictures without worrying about an extra piece of equipment to lug around.

If you plan to take lot of pictures, be sure there’s enough memory on whatever device will be used to take pictures. It can be a disappointing feeling to go to take another picture just to realize that there’s no more space on the device. Bring an extra SD card or clear some space on an old one, and you should be good to go.

Being one of the most fascinating nature-made landmarks, it’s a location that people from several different countries come to visit.

If hiking is something you and your group enjoy, the hiking trails are a must-try.
  2. Walking along the north or south rim (which are located 277 miles apart from each other) offers several different photographic views of the canyon, as well as several stations that give fascinating information about how the canyon formed. This is the most popular way to experience the canyon, and with the colors and the view changing as the day goes on, it’s always a beautiful sight to see.
  3. In the North Rim, it’s possible to take rafting trips through the Colorado River, located at the floor of the canyon. For those who enjoy water rafting, this would be a great way to cruise through the canyon, offering a different, spectacular view of it. It offers a sort of immersive experience that literally brings you into the canyon, and it is highly recommended by Tommy Middaugh.
