I came across a blog post that was written about a year ago. ( I don’t search myself all that often) that mentions me and this service. It’s cool to also see that people are warming up to the idea. Considering that when I researched this service before launching this site there was NOTHING related to it online aside from a post in the forums of PopPhoto by another gent wondering the same things as me. Is this a thing? Would there be a demand for it?
Well I’m happy to see that it’s becoming a thing. It’s true that the only traffic I’ve gotten so far is from other photographers asking “how it’s going?” but the fact of the matter is I haven’t promoted this much at all and have been busy working on many other projects. Also, I know my prices aren’t “cheap” enough for the average traveler. I specifically priced myself in the slightly higher end (but reasonable range). Keeping in mind you get my full attention for 10 hours of the day for $800. (Try getting a pro wedding photographer for 10 hours at that price.) That’s not to say that I wouldn’t jump at the first chance to do this at the drop of a dime.
I’m currently planning for my own adventure slated to launch in the middle of 2015. The Great North American Road Trip is in the works. That said, even if I’m on the road I can park and hop a plane to do your vacation photos anytime.
Along with the road trip adventure I’ve launched a pay it forward photography project that gifts creative photography sessions to people with limited means, mobility issues, remote location challenges or who are overcoming other hardships. This project was inspired by what I do at the Burning Man Festival every year, where I gift portraits to my fellow festival attendees.
So I’ve got lots on the go but like I said, I’m more than willing to come along and capture your vacation like only I can.
Have a wonderful autumn and perhaps I’ll see you soon.
