1. PICK A DESTINATION

Sounds too easy, right? Well, that’s because it is that simple. Now, if you are just getting started, start small. Start local. For example, pick a city that’s within driving range to keep costs down. Open a map and look for locations within a 4-6 hour drive. This allows you to control hotel costs and eliminates the costs of airline tickets which is always a factor. By starting somewhat local, you also make it easier for your clients to say yes to a destination shoot as well. This is important. After all, they are the ones you are selling to. There are a lot of other benefits to starting local. Traveling with gear is not easy. There is something to be said for seasoned travelers. They know how to move gear around the world efficiently. I know when we first started traveling it was a bit of a circus. We always seemed to pack too much and that cost us money in extra baggage fees, larger vehicles, more staff, etc.
