Why You Should Always Bring Your Camera on Road Trips

Reid Uncategorized Leave a Comment

Last week I spent about 16 hours driving through Eastern Tennessee, Kentucky and Southern Virginia for various photo shoots I was hired for. I love my camera, I love shooting pictures, but many times when I’m driving¬†I don’t carry my camera. It is an extra bag to haul in and out of the vehicle.

Because I happened to be on the road for photography jobs, I of course had my camera. I left home with a goal to take some pictures on the road wondering what things of interest I might see. Here are just a few of the things I saw and took pictures of. I’m glad I had my camera.

You just never know what you will see while you are on the road- so don’t leave your camera at home!
