One of the most sought out photographer position in the Photography industry. It doesn’t make that much money, from the start, like wedding photography does, but it is the #1 in ensuring countless adventures and money needed. Sounds like my kind of area!
The question may arise is – why. Why do you want to be a Travel Photographer, instead of a wedding photographer or a portrait photographer, etc?
Well why do I want to be a travel photographer. That is the more direct of the question. It’s simple, the sheer joy of traveling and taking photographs! It’s really a mix of photojournalism, documentary work, socio-anthro-psychological study, adventure, mystique, danger, and freedom all in one.
How does one get paid. A very good question.
