"We're addicted to Photojojo" -- Heather Champ
"Take Photos? You Need this Newsletter." -- Jim Heid

"I'm the kinda guy who unsubscribed from every email list I was on in 1999... But their excitement was contagious, and before I knew it, I was plunking down my address." - Derek Powazek
A List Apart
"I'm never disappointed by Photojojo." -- Dave Johnson
You may not have heard about this in the news (it’s kind of one of those underground media stories) but gasoline is getting sort of expensive.
We fear it might put a damper on one of the greatest pastimes ever: road trips!
We at Photojojo love road trips because they’re a photographer’s dream: each new mile is a photo waiting to happen. So we’ve compiled our Ultimate Guide to Road Trip Photography, to inspire you on your next trip!
Gather as many friends as you can for your carpool vacation, and pack the camera gear into your hybrid (or rent one!). It’s time to hit the road!
Put the Pedal to the Metal
Okay, so gas is pricey. But airlines are overrated, and canoeing your way cross-country just isn’t practical anymore.
Besides, the World’s Largest Ball of Twine won’t be around forever. If you want to see that “Vanishing Heritage” that everybody gets so worked up about, now’s the time. So load up the Family Truckster and get out there!

NEW! Plot Your Photos On A Map
Eye-Fi Explore cards and GPS trackers record where your photos were taken, or you can map them in Flickr. Pull up “Your Map” (under “Organize”), then drag & drop your pics into place.
What to Do When You Get Home
Make Some Souvenirs
Showing Off Your Memories
Why not throw them into a digital slideshow? Or, if you have a soft spot for the old-fashioned photo album, Umbra makes some awesome ones. Better yet, rock it old school: get some photo pages, slap ‘em into a three-ring binder, and doodle all over the cover.
