RVE 0029: How to Start an Outdoor Photography Business

This post may contain affiliate links. See our affiliate disclaimer here.

Today on the podcast I’m interviewing Josh and Shelley Hartman. Josh and Shelley are outdoor photographers who travel full-time in their Casita trailer. They travel across the country taking photos of engagement sessions in national parks and weddings all over the world.


In this episode we talk about:

  • How Josh and Shelley intentionally built their photography business so it allowed them to travel
  • Josh and Shelley’s favorite camera and lens combo
  • Why telling people you live in an RV doesn’t deter them from wanting to work with you, but intrigues them
