My brother and I decided to buy a MarkIII conversion van and travel around the states. I'm going primarily to make photographs and write a travelogue with the distant hope that I may get it published some day. I don't have a set amount of time to accomplish this. I would like the trip to last as long as possible.
I'm wondering if anyone had any ideas about making money on the road. I will be shooting digital with all the necessary equipment to post-process and print from the road and my current idea is to sell prints or offer portraits and other commissioned work. Do you think this is a viable option to extend my time travelling? Maybe just enough to pay for fuel?
I am willing and determined to make this happen. Any suggestions on my idea or any others available would be a blessing at this point. I'm not adverse to the idea of staying put for weeks at a time to work in local businesses, day labor, etc. Thanks for reading.
