Shantanu Starick

I found out about this video, of a talk by Australian photographer Shantanu Starick, through Eli Trier, and I just had to share it.

It’s good news for Scanners…

Basically, through his website Pixeltrade, Shantanu has been travelling the world for free, for the past two years, in return for taking photographs – and trading on his willingness to photograph pretty much anything, rather than being a specialist.

What a wonderful idea – to be able to do what you love, for people who appreciate you, without having to worry about how much to charge or how you’re going to be able to get to where you need to be.

I would definitely be happy to trade my creative talents in return for some exciting adventures – albeit on a much smaller scale. 🙂
