    As I sit here in my new house listening to the Man in Black's "I've been everywhere", I wonder if anyone out there is a "paid" travel photographer.

    If so, how did you get started? Any advice? Sites to see? People to talk to?

    thanks,
    david b (almost in albuquerque)

    Within that musical context, I must say that being "almost in albuquerque" is better than being stuck in Lodi (again). :wink:

    I've travelled, I've photographed, and I've been paid. But, the payment was for doing other business, so I don't qualify.

    Hey Ralph....somehow I knew you would respond.

    Well I have a few boxes in ABQ and a few more in Santa Fe.

    I'll be in ABQ by our meeting.

    Hey david,
    I used to print for this guy who would take his equipment with him to resorts and trade advertising shots of the resort for a stay there. He said that worked at alot of places in the Carribbean(?). He lives in Santa Fe. His last name is Weiss.
