    Young couple living the dream with drone, camera crew and very deep pockets. Very slick movie with a little too much journeying and self discovery for us mere photography mortals.

    Very well done and certainly not on the amateur side. Great images! Who said "get in front of better subjects ......" paraphrased.

    I've seen a bit of their work in the new RRS magazine. Full-time travel is, unfortunately, out of the realm of possibility for most of us, but we can dream.

    Very nice film clip, very professional made.

    I lived at some stage out of a (some) suitcase(s) in Thailand, left my suitcases at one hotel in Bangkok when going for oil off-shore work.

    After +1 year I got feed up with it and rented an apartment in Bangkok and used that as a base when traveling around in the Kingdom.

    I ended up with; wife,kids, a dog, nice house, pick-up truck, a couple of motor-bikes and at this stage of my life, I fell very good about that.

    Well maybe I'm in the minority, but I certainly wouldn't want to be travelling full-time... I like having friends and a social life and stuff. I do enjoy my holidays though.

    I did the "travel thing" for almost a decade on a small yacht, and single-handed at that. Somehow I managed "friends, a social life, and stuff" while underway. Believe me, it can be done, and done quite well. Memories and the friends encountered are only minor examples.

    Now, a bit later along, I'm living ashore with family, friends, and additional conveniences. So far the difference seems to be that I'm less likely to drown. Please don't mention this comment to my wonderful wife.

    I've heard it originated with Joe McNally.

    Thanks for posting the video. I'm envious, just a little.

    I've traveled a bit in the past few years. Can be tiring. Possibly because I was new to it.

    Am curious how they did some of the videos. Did they have a videographer go with them?

    I like the aerial shots. Were they shot with a drone? Some (when camera followed the car) looked like ones from a helicopter, but I'm sure that would have been too expensive.

    Also, were some shots done with a slider? Clearly some are done with a slider (I think!) but the ones around the Japanese temple with the cherry blossoms, they look like the camera would have been too high in the air for a slider.

    Usually these sponsored people (you see them on instagram all the time) have a team of people filming and photographing them. For example, the traveling blonde girl who's super popular has a team of about 4 people as her entourage everywhere she goes.

    I really like Elia Locardi's work. That was a cool little video was well. Nice to see him shooting fuji, pretty sure he used to be a Nikon shooter. Might be a dual system shooter

    I've watched a couple of his youtube videos (most are trailers or parts of for sale tutorials). In everything I saw he was using Nikon gear, fwiw. Maybe he recently switched to Fuji-x. I did like a landscape tutorial video shot in Iceland, but he has also been in some critique videos that I thought were pretty useless.

    Lovely stuff but I found myself thinking that it must be nice to have resources like that backing you up.

    I rejoice in their good fortune.
