The No. 1 Rule of Good Travel Photos

... is hire these guys.

By The Editors

This is what the world sees when they hear the phrase “American tourist.”

That is not a good look.

Out to improve it, one Instagram account at a time:

El Camino Travel, the only travel concern that sends you abroad with an award-winning photographer in tow, now booking.

Founded by a team of decorated shutterbugs and international travel planners, El Camino curates off-the-beaten-path vacations with an eye on cultural immersion and striking visuals.

And every trip is co-captained by a professional photographer there to document your journey. These point-and-shooters are talented, trust. Check their Instagram for proof.

Two trips are available now:

  • Four nights in Colombia, where your group will dance salsa with locals, swim on secluded beaches and soak in volcanic mud baths
  • A week in Nicaragua featuring beach-fancy cocktail parties, surf lessons and a cigar-rolling tutorial

The trips are small — about 10-12 people — and you’ll be sharing a room, so bring a friend.

The founders even conduct pre-trip interviews to get to know you better.

And your group’s personal lensman will provide magazine-worthy shots of your escapades each morning for your social media needs.

Finally, a vacation worth sharing.
