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

Topics Discussed

  • 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.
  • INSURANCE!!
  • Finding jobs while on the road:
    • Craigslist
    • Upwork
    • 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! 

 

Final Thoughts

  • 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!!
