When photographer Andrew Rowat went to China to shoot a golf story for Air Canada’s enRoute magazine, he had to orchestrate over a hundred caddies and their golf carts to portray the growing popularity of golf in that country. Travel photography might sound like a dream job (and it is), but the complexities and challenges (hello hurricanes!) are far greater than in your average studio shoot. From insights of life on the road to what photo editors are looking for, we’ll share the ins and outs of commissioning, producing and editing photography for a travel magazine.


Andrew Rowat

Andrew can count the world’s leading publications as clients, and he splits his time between New York City and Shanghai.

His portraits have appeared in Vanity Fair and The New Yorker, his travel work regularly appears in Conde Nast Traveler and Travel + Leisure, and his architecture and lifestyle work finds its way into the pages of Wallpaper, Monocle, and Dwell. His profile features have appeared in Esquire, and GQ. He was honoured with a PDN30 award, an award that recognizes the top 30 up-and-coming photographers worldwide; as well as awards from the Magenta Foundation, Px3, and the APA.
