Every photographer knows the frustration of visiting a popular location and not being able to shoot an unobstructed scene, but Affinity Photo allows you to have the place to yourself.

PICTURE THE SCENE; you’ve travelled to a bucket list location to shoot some stunning imagery that you’ll then upload onto stock sites and hopefully make some cash from. One small problem; you’re not alone.
