Don't know if it counts, but some jobs where I've been hired as a camera man I've travelled to London, Glasgow, or even Prague and Oslo.

I will travel wherever is needed if the shoot is paid well. If the journey and shoot cant be done within one day I will try to get accommodation . But I wouldn't go more than 2hours away for a 2 hour shoot unless I can book further work in the same location

We are not typically talking abroad as such, although a few people have posted it up. An hour once you shot with everyone within an hour’s radius from you….. Well, I will put it another way, you are limiting yourself. If all who have the same outlook, regarding that 70mph is the fastest you can (legally) drive in the UK, so you will only travel 70 miles at the most, if I took the same view, I would not even get to the airport of ferry port for a pick up. Modelling and Photography takes dedication, all because you are attractive, does mean you a good model, like wise all because you have an expensive camera does mean you a great photographer…. This is why we leave feedback. I am not attacking you here, I am showing you that if you want a future in modelling, you need to start pushing yourself, regardless of what type or style of model you are and you will find that you portfolio will same stay the same. There are some models that work hard and travel all over the country to almost every job they get offered, maybe they and not the most stunning girls in some peoples’ opinions, but as models, they have ease to work with and reliability they cash in on those qualities. Hence the aim of the thread is to bring such things to people attentions, because no one is going to offer any serious work or photo shoot away to someone who has not got a portfolio that stands out or has a track recorded of cancellation due to travel, and if you want to work with a top level photographer... they will not make a house call, you will have to go to their studio for a (test shoot at least). I am happy to travel, and traveled over two hours to London, only to face someone who could make an hours trip into London.... do you see what I am saying?

2.5 hour drive in each direction, although this is only a hobby for me.
