Learn how to get started and become a location independent photographer.
In this Photoprofit podcast, I talk to Patricia Davidson, a successful landscape photographer from Oregon, USA, about how she and her husband have been travelling for the past year and how she has earned income in her photography business while on the road.
She shares with us why she is doing it, the pros and cons of running a business while travelling, tips on saving money while on the road, and how and why she became a minimalist – letting go of “stuff” and how this liberated her life.
