I just read an article about families hiring professional photographers to go on vacation with them. How fun! Please add me into the mix of this exciting spin off of travel photography.
It makes perfect sense for any family to make this investment. A photographer’s job is to capture action and events as they happen and smiling faces enjoying family time together. Great photographers are also able to compose portraits at any given location under any lighting conditions. And just admit it, your previous vacation photos stink. It’s OK, there’s help on the way. You’re not in them, Timmy’s head is cut off, there’s limbs missing, the flash is so bright Jenny looks like an alien, red eye and a whole host of problems. Oh sure you got one good one from the 3000 you took, congratulations!
I can picture traveling with my canon cameras, underwater housing, apple computer and profoto lighting onto a private jet or yacht and working hard with a family that appreciates the talents of a professional photographer. I’d expect no set hours, a lot of fun, great scenery and being treated like family. I’d like to think I’d be a fly on the wall in great locations such as Caribbean, Europe, South America, Bora Bora, Alps or an African safari!
I’d treat your family vacation like I’d treat one of my assignments for Golf Channel, HGTV, Discovery Channel, Golf Magazine, or the many number of clients I’ve gained in my 17 years of photography.
I’ve already been in helicopters, planes, million dollar boats, celebrity homes, exclusive resorts and more. I’ve worked with Shaq, Bobby Flay, author James Patterson, Jimmie Johnson, Arnold Palmer, Michael Phelps, billionaires Sol Kerzner and Sam Zell, chef Robert Irvine and a whole list of pro golfers. I’d fit right in! Come on, take me! And yes, I have my passport. And yes, I’m used to non-disclosure agreements.
