When you have a genuine love for travel photography, it shows in every image you capture. If you’re anything like me, you probably have huge collections of beautiful moments with family and friends and thousands of photos of landscapes, cities and wildlife from your travels. If you want to really ignite your passion for photography, then taking your camera and equipment overseas is an absolute must and you can discover the latest in medium format cameras here.

In London you are surrounded by stunning architecture, from Westminster to St Paul’s Cathedral and even more modern pieces such as the Shard or the Gherkin.
