Travel Photographer, Los Angeles: Tanveer Badal - Editorial and Commercial Lifestyle & Travel Photography

As a travel and lifestyle photographer based in Los Angeles and New York City (depending on which coast has the best light at the moment), I’ve traveled to over 50 countries and contributed photography for Condé Nast Traveler, The New York Times, Travel & Leisure and BBC Travel, as well as several hotels and resorts, tourism boards and commercial brands. I’m also an Afar Magazine ambassador.

I specialize in luxury hotel photography and have worked with hospitality clients such as Four Seasons Resorts, Hyatt Hotels and Hotel Esencia (Tulum).

Social media sharing is a huge part of my photography. I’ve done numerous social media takeovers for commercial brands and magazines. My travel Instagrams have been featured in @travelandleisure, @cntraveler, @airbnb, @passionpassport, and @afarmedia to just name a few.

Along with my wife, Kelly Phillips Badal, who’s a travel writer and editor, we’re co-founders of the travel content marketing agency, Compass and Passport.

Nice to meet you!
