Do you really need to hire a photography guide when you travel? After all, you know how to do the research. You use Google Earth, Flickr, 500px, Photographer’s Ephemeris, PhotoPills, and rGPS (Really Good Photo Spots—an app with a curated list of great photo locations and directions for finding them). You leave home with a plan and a shot list. Is there a compelling reason to hire a photo guide?
