Remotes are not only changing the possibilities of work, they’re changing the world. So - who are these people who pick up their entire lives to work around the world for a year? In our new “Speed Networking” series, we’ll continue the work of the RY Nation series on our social channels and introduce you to a Remote in 30 seconds, using the images that tell their story and quick quotes that give you insight into their incredible lives.
First up is Jay Harrison, a photographer and videographer currently traveling the world with Remote Year Kublai. So far on Remote Year, he has lived in Kuala Lumpur, Ho Chi Minh, Phnom Penh, Bangkok, Belgrade, Lisbon, Prague, Sofia, Buenos Aires and Cordoba.
I started photography in high school but never really took it seriously until I was in a pack of news photographers trying to get the shot my boss sent me out for. It was just way more interesting than my previous role which had me chained to an office desk at the time.
My professional advice for Remotes is to shoot in .raw and be nice to your mom.
What I look for in a shot is amazing people, interesting lighting, puppies, and a fantastic location.
Right now my photography style is... eclectic. I hate that word but it's probably the only way to sum up the photographs I have taken recently. I read an article a few years ago about how to be prolific and it's stuck with me. It was basically saying just create, as much as you can, as quickly as you can, and for as long as you can.
