RVE 0012: How Kathy and Peter Holcombe Get Paid to Take Epic Photos

On this week’s episode of The RV Entrepreneur I sat down to interview Kathy and Peter Holcombe from famagogo.com. They are adventure and life photographers who have been traveling all over the country in their Winnebago View RV since June of 2014.

Kathy and Peter are sponsored by companies like Winnebago, Jackson Kayaks, and GoPro and take some of the most epic photos I’ve ever seen in my life. Sometimes they are photographing professional kayakers for a magazine and other times they are going on adventures to create content for one of their commercial clients.

Plus, their 11 year old daughter Abby is more of an adventurer than I could ever hope to be. (I know that sounds like a joke, but it’s 100% true).

Check out their Instagram below to see some of their work.

In This Episode We Talk About:

  • How Peter and Kathy transitioned their brick and mortar photography business into a nomadic venture
  • Everything that goes into taking an amazing photograph
  • How the Holcombe’s started working with brands like Winnebago, Jackson Kayaks, and others
  • The fears they had about pulling their daughter out of school to live on the road
  • Some of the common mistakes people make when first getting started with a photography business
