What’s great about photography and videography is that in most cases you can work wherever you are and thus move freely around the globe. Chris Hau understood that and managed to travel for free using his photography. In this video, he shares his experience and story with you to try giving you tips and inspiration to do the same in 2018.
When we look at YouTubers, Instagramers, and other influencers of any sort, we tend to think they have had luck and everything was given to them. But it’s usually not the truth. In the short video above, Chris Hau explains how he turned his travel videos into something that helped him to travel for free and get services that otherwise he wouldn’t have had access to.
All businesses need images; either pictures, videos, or both. However, companies often times don’t have much time to look for creatives to work with. While on the other side, us, as creatives are often afraid to contact brands and companies as we don’t like to hear people say no. But no is the worst case scenario; there is also the possibility of receiving a yes along with free services, products, or even getting paid.
Hau's video is quite useful and may help some of us who are afraid of asking other for help or work, to try and do so. What do you think? Do you believe in asking or are you more the kind of person to wait for things to happen? I’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments below.
