Getting to travel with your partner around the globe is the ultimate relationship goal. But getting paid a six figure salary to do so? That’s quite literally the icing on the cake.
Jack Morris, 26, and his girlfriend Lauren Bullen, 24, are living the dream as they travel the world together and get paid thousands of dollars from documenting their trip on Instagram.
Since meeting in Fiji in March 2016, they have travelled together for about a year and forged relationships with tourism companies and brands from which they earn thousands from posting breathtaking pictures of their travels.
“As soon as we started posting photos together brands would contact us much more frequently than they would when we were travelling by ourselves,” Morris told Cosmo UK. “I think they probably saw more value in a couple because it’s a target audience for most in the travel industry.”
He also mentioned that the pair “won’t do a post for less than $3,000” and that the most he got for one post is $9,000 while Bullen earned up to $7,500 per post.
If that’s not impressive enough, it turns out they could actually charge more if they wanted to.
“I did a job for a phone company where I flew out for three days; there were two days filming and then I had to do five photos on Instagram, and that was $35,000,” he said.
Morris also took to his blog, Do You Travelto share some tips in taking the perfect travel photos. “Most of the time we like to shoot around one hour after sunrise. Busy locations don’t tend to be as busy at this time of day,’ he wrote.
He also added that he avoids using Instagram filters .“I don’t use any mobile apps or filters, I edit using Lightroom on my Macbook Pro. If a photo looks a little dark or the contrast is not right I sometimes tweak and edit just on the pre-post Instagram editor.”
☼One year around the sun with you ☼ @doyoutravel Some things fall apart, so better things can fall together, I always told myself that, what’s meant to be will be.. you were what was meant to be, you turned my world upside down.

It was revealed that both of them take their own photos where photos featuring them together are taken with a tripod and timer remote.
