"What Is Travel? (The Zero-Gig Challenge)" | Photographer Derek Shapton on staying connected... or not.

Even when I’m on vacation, I always have a camera in my hand. I shoot stock with Masterfile and Gallery Stock and am always filtering my perceptions through the eyes of an imaginary licensee. I am always on the make, and hence always on assignment, and therefore always distanced in some way from my surroundings; a paradoxical state of affairs for someone who enjoys travel so much.

Do you feel more creative when you are NOT at home?

I always feel a little more exhilarated about shooting when I am in a new and different locale.
