My Shot Lists for Travel – iPhone App for Photographers

categories: Uncategorized

Have you every seen an application be released and think oh I had that same idea? Usually this is a bad thing but I was pleased to see the release of “My Shot Lists for Travel” which is an iPhone app for photographers. I was pleased for a number of reasons.

  1. The app is being marketed by Ralph Velasco who has been on the Amateur Traveler twice as a guest and with whom I hosted the Amateur Traveler Egypt Photo Tour last November. Anyone who has let me crash on their floor is OK in my book.
  2. A friend of mine Paula wrote this app for Ralph.
  3. I introduced Paula and Ralph and was “working” with them one this app back in August before I started my job at TripAdvisor and had to bow out.

I had proposed to Ralph that we take some of the content from his how to photography book and make it available as an iPhone app. The app changed a bit on the way into “My Shot Lists for Travel”. This app helps you create a “shot list” (a list of pictures you want to take) for a particular destination. Built into the app are a number of suggestions for travel photographers like taking a picture of a flag to establish a sense of place


The app includes:

  • Over 50 wide-ranging categories for travel photography, including descriptions and sample images.
  • The ability to effortlessly develop custom shot lists for any destination or shooting environment.
  • A My Data feature lets you track your progress by taking sample photos for each category from within the app to act as a visual list.
  • The capability to add notes to recall vital details or insert reminders to any shot list, category or image.
