English translation:Travel and urban photographer
Explanation:
Yahoo yielded 415 hits for "travel photographer," but only 4 for "urban." An alternative would be to say something like, "The photographer XXX, whose main subjects are travel and urban life/cityscapes . . . " [with the latter depending on what the text says about his "Städtefotographie"].

"travel and urban life and landscape photographer"


Explanation:

I just wanted to agree with towns313. During my photography studies in Australia and Germany, we spent much time daydreaming about and discussing what sort of photographer we wanted to be when we grew up (I was only 35-45 at the time). One officially used type classification was the "travel and urban life and landscape photographer". These people travel around taking pictures of the interesting places they visit. Joe Giordano, one of my fellow students, became such a photographer. He has been doing nothing but traveling for the last 20 years. He sells his photos to travel agency chains and tourism organizers for catalogues, travel book publishers, calendar publishers, general interest and travel magazines. The acme for these people would be an assignment for "Geo" or "National Geographic".
