I still can’t believe that Travel Longer magazine has been around for a year already…  Seems like just last month that we published our first issue on the Apple Newsstand.  12 months later, and we have had the privileged of showcasing some of the world’s leading travel photographers. (I would insert a long list of very famous names here, but as this post is primarily about photographer Elia Locardi, I’ll let you look up who we have featured in the past.)

Elia Locardi is a location independent travel photographer, meaning he and his lovely wife Naomi travel perpetually around the globe hosting photo/cultural tours and technical workshops in some pretty cool locations. You can check out more of Elia‘s work on his blog BlameTheMonkey.

I had the extreme pleasure of tracking Elia down a few weeks ago, and had a great interview with him (see below). Elia talks about full-time travel, his new photo/cultural tours with his wife Naomi, and good friend Ken Kaminesky, advice on building up a photography portfolio, amongst other things…

You can also see Elia‘s latest article as the ‘Featured Photographer’ in December’s special 1st Anniversary issue of Travel Longer magazine — The World’s Premier Extended Travel & Photography Magazine.

In other rather important news — we are pleased to announce a new member to the Travel Longer team. A rather shy person who actually seems to spend a lot of her time at work sleeping and eating… I’m sure she is just ‘finding her feet’…  Here is a sneak peak:
