My Long Trip is about many things…
First of all it’s a site that I started to get hired, I have a range of equipment and photography skills that I get contracted out for. But photography isn’t easy. It's a complicated market full of other keen hard working people and you need to stand out. And many have niches in areas I simply don’t and that’s okay.
But Im different, just like everybody else. My niche though is my ability to travel, to willingly go anywhere I need to, and get you images. Be it volcanos, the vast ocean, arctic land scapes or scolding sun that. Combined with my passion for my work means contracts are there, I’d just like more of them.
I truly don’t think the world has been drowned by many like me, willing to go anywhere anytime in any circumstance just to capture the beautiful images our planet has to offer. And because of that I have been in many ‘hairy’ and fantastic situations. Like anything there’s high’s and lows.
Second half of My Long Trip is about inspiration, getting people out in the world again realising there’s more to it, more importantly more to traveling than a gap year party between college and University with your current or new travel buddies.
Theres thousands of cultures across our globe and billions of people. This fact a lone means something out there is going to interest you, much more than that latest console, car or sofa. So set goals and realise you can get there and experience anything you want, if you do a bit of research it won’t even cost you an arm and leg either because hostels, tuk-tuks and rooftop train seats create stories and when you can’t do certain things anymore its these stories that you keep forever. I promise that.
