Rich family wants to pay someone £80,000 a year to travel the world photographing them

IF travelling to exotic locations and getting paid £80,000 a year to do it sounds like your dream job then you’re in luck.

A British family is hiring a professional photographer to follow them around the world for a year and the money and the travel experiences aren’t the only perks.

The job, which will start from February 2019, will involve extensive travel around the world over a 12 month period.

In addition to the salary, the family will also be covering all the food, travel and accommodation expenses for the lucky photographer.

While the benefits are good, the destinations you get to visit are perhaps even better.

Europe, America, South America and Australia are all on the agenda as the family owns “a number of holiday homes and other residences” in those destinations.

You will get to accompany the family to events such as the Formula One Grand Prix in Monaco and Abu Dhabi,  Mardi Gras in New Orleans and the Rio Carnival as well.

Plus, diving in the Maldives and skiing in Val d’Isere are also on the list of things that the family is planning to do in the coming year.

So what exactly is involved in the job and how do you apply?

Well, according to the job description posted on Perfocal, the exciting role will involve working for up to 10 hours a day, taking lifestyle shots of the mystery family, who have chosen to remain anonymous for the time being.

You could be away for three months at a time and may only get a few days home in between trips.

It’s a full-on commitment, as you may be asked to travel at the drop of a hat as well.

But for the right person, there’s also the opportunity to extend the contract beyond 12 months.

The family are looking for someone with at least five years’ experience taking lifestyle shots and can apply for the role on Perfocal’s website.

Being a professional photographer isn’t the only way you can travel around the world with a wealthy family – nannies for example can do particularly well.
