It might not be everyone’s dream, but it is ours: how do you travel the world and make money while doing it?
Traveling for work can be a daunting task, but we break it down into what tech you might need, how to find jobs and make connections, how to use the internet to your best advantage, and a few our own experiences while traveling!

My service from Ivan the bartender was impeccable, this was the best experience I’ve had at a restaurant by far. The Clarita’s chicken was to die for, and my corona was dressed elegantly. Me and my little senorita will be back. – Benjamin Edwards
- How to use the internet, Facebook, and Instagram to make connections and to find jobs.
- Making sure your tech isn’t too heavy; use 1 lens instead of three, wear the right bag (for you), a light tripod will work for you instead of against.
- Taking control of your environment when you’re not in your home studio.
- Finding jobs while on the road:
- Facebook Groups
- Leave behinds
- Setup a styled shoot so you can make connections
- How to price your photography for when you are traveling.
- Deciding whether or not to disclose your home base to out of state clients.
- The importance of keeping track of mileage.
- Airplane travel does not count towards mileage. Bummer!
- Mica: Contracts and taxes. How do we prepare these things for out of state work? Find connections in any city you travel and live in, and ask people out for coffee!
- Cheyenne: Know your worth, traveling for work is hard but rewarding, make sure you are not getting jipped. Know what you want from traveling and these jobs.
- Cayla: Don’t be afraid to use the internet!!
