Do you shoot from shot lists? If you are a commercial or wedding photographer, there is a good chance that you answered yes. But what about travel photographers or those of us who like to shoot our family vacations? While it is natural to make a shot list for a product shoot or to be sure you get certain shots for a wedding, we sometimes do not think about a shot list for our travels.

The app is fully customizable so you can add your own destinations to fit your travels. Read More→
