How much do Travel Scouts get paid?
As a Travel Scout, you have full control of how much you make! Compensation is based on the assignment that is claimed.
There is no maximum for assignments a photographer can claim, though we ask that you only claim as many assignments as they can commit to completing thoughtfully.
Do Travel Scouts get to bring friends on assignments
Absolutely. We encourage travel scouts to bring friends on assignments.
As a Travel Scout, we want you to experience the place to its fullest, and we believe this is best done with friends and family. However only bring as many friends as the assignment allows.
Where are the photography assignments available?
We have assignments available throughout South Africa, and new ones get added every day. All available assignments are sent via email to approved scouts. If you’re an approved photographer, you can claim any of these assignments at any time, and book the shoot for a day that works for you.
How many assignments am I required to take?
We have no set-requirement on the number of assignments that must be completed—Travel Scouts are encouraged to pick up assignments whenever they can.
However, if a photographer has at least one available nearby assignment for over 6 months and does not claim it, we may remove them from the program. (We have to ensure our photographer base is reliable and active!)
