As summer approaches, the travel bug tends to kick in full force for adventurous Sony photographers. Those equipped with Sony Alpha cameras and lenses already hear the ringing of the #BeAlpha movement, and one way they answer the call is by getting outside of their comfort zone, exploring new places and capturing different scenes. This week we feature Sony travel and tourism photographers who are doing just that. Give them a follow and make sure you check out these five budget-friendly Sony lenses for travel to document your own jet setting journeys.

Follow @sonyalpha and tag your own Sony photos on Instagram with #BeAlpha for your chance to be featured!
