Telling Your Stories Through Travel Photography
from Lola (Akinmade) Åkerström

Here’s the presentation I gave during my travel photography session at TBEX Toronto 2013. While it’s a lot different being there in person listening to each slide being explained, hope you get the gist of it and learn something new too. Please share your thoughts below.

  • Great presentation, Lola! Sure wish I could have been there to see and hear it in person.

  • Love the clarity and brevity of your slideshow, Lola. And what great examples. Thanks very much for posting it. If you ever want to create a slideshow that incorporates your voice and ambient sounds, and plays like a video, you should check out Soundslides audio slideshow software. We’ll hope to be at the next TBEX.

    What a great presentation with terrific tips. Thanks for sharing. Someday, I want YOUR life!!

    • Thanks Martha!

  • Thanks for presenting, Lola, and for sharing so many of your captivating photos! I was at your seminar on Saturday and can confirm that you were very well received, for certain. You were able to put into words some rather intangible concepts about what makes a photo good.

    I make a pledge not to do any more ‘sneak’ portrait shots.

    • Thank you so much Andrea! Glad you found it helpful and hope you see an improvement in your photos as you start executing these tips.
