Have Camera, Will Travel: Full-Time Travel Photography

Quitting your day job, slinging a camera around your neck, and jetting off to travel the world and take beautiful pictures seems like the stuff bestselling memoirs and National Geographic documentaries are made of. But for Raf Horemans, that’s just everyday life. A little less than a year ago, Horemans left behind his life in Belgium to begin a series of international adventures. So far, he has traveled to Australia, New Zealand, Hong Kong, Myanmar, Vietnam, Cambodia, Thailand, and Laos, documenting his journey with his own unique photographic perspective:

I shoot with a Pentax K-5. Lenses I had (and still have) with me: 10-20mm Sigma (for the wide shots), 30mm f1.4 Sigma (for low light), 40mm f2.8 Pentax limited (my favorite lens by far), 18-200mm Tamron (my least favorite lens ever, but very useful).

Horemans apparently plans to travel indefinitely, picking up odd jobs here and there while abroad. He maintains a travel photography blog called Homebound Blues, where photos from these and other locations can be viewed.

I saved some money for a few years. I worked a boring job with bad pay. Travel can be very cheap if you have time. And the cheaper the more satisfaction. In Asia this means eat, sleep and poop where the locals do, for example by going on the ‘chicken buses’ with the locals you’ll have a more memorable and fun experience than on the air-con bus with the tourists. It just takes you longer to get from A to B. In a Western country, try hitchhiking, share-riding, working for accommodation, couch surfing… A good book on this (and long-term travel in general) is Vagabonding by Rolf Potts.
