Taking Family On The Road While Capturing Landscape Photography
As a commercial photographer for brands like Patagonia, Marmot, and Garmin, Lars Schneider has spent years in the outdoors producing fantastic images for his clients. Being on the road might be a burden for some, especially when it impacts the time they can spend with family. This photographer has included his family though, and has taken to the road across the US in a 1971 Volkswagen.
In this video from F-stop Gear’s Life In Focus series, you can get a taste of what days are like for Lars and his family. Having a baby and doing all of their cooking, cleaning, business, post production, and travel in the VW bus would make for an interesting challenge. As Lars states in the video, “We want to get more creative and advance at what we are doing. Being on the road with this, with all the heavy stuff at home, you’re really free because you don’t have all that weight, all that stuff with you. It’s so nice to be outside and experience the nature, and the fresh air, and the dust, everyday.”
This has to be one of the best examples of not only living your passion every day, but integrating your work life and personal life. I think I could camp everyday and hang out in National Parks while taking pictures, and enjoy my family at the same time, how about any of you?
