Do you dig photography?
What if you could get paid to shutter snap your way around the planet?
I’m very excited to bring you the very first session of the Zero To Travel podcast. This session we focus on turning your photography into a travel based business.
We’re talking traveling event and commercial photography with pro photographer and creative live on air host Ari Shapiro.
Get ready to take what you love, and mix in heaps of exotic travel because we are cooking up a delicious lifestyle that will put you out on the road with your lens in no time.
In this interview, Ari drops some serious knowledge nugs including:
- Why it’s important to take pictures everyday
- How to turn your 5-9 passion into a 9-5 business
- Why niches are so important in photography
- Ideas for trading pictures for travel
- Where to sell your pictures for profits right away
- The difference between taking photos and making photos
- How to make launching a photo business affordable without blowing crazy cash on expensive equipment
- How to get started shooting at events all over the country
- and much more…
Ari, spent years as a traveling roadie in event marketing (which I’ll cover in another episode) and figured out how to break into photography. Now it’s your turn.
