Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Why Be A Moment Guide?

A: We make it easy. You share your knowledge of where to go and what to shoot and we take care of the rest. This lets you focus on what you love...teaching and exploring...without the headache that comes with organizing, marketing, and running a trip. Ultimately we'd love to see Moment Guide launch their own trips on the marketplace.

Q: Who Can Be A Moment Guide?

A: Anyone. We have three levels of guide form beginner to the super famous. We try to match your teaching level to the level of the trip so you aren't out of your element.

Q: What’s It Like To Guide A Trip?

A: We pair you with the local guiding company that we hire to run the trip. They handle all of the trip logistics, including transportation, meals, equipment, and accommodations. You advise on the itinerary, handle all of the teaching, and support the guiding company as needed. We're counting on you to make the trips awesome. 

Q: How Much Do I Get Paid?

A: In addition to free travel and gear, all of our guides get paid a flat day rate and a per person bonus. If more people come on the trip you get paid more for handling a larger work load. Generally our trips run anywhere from 8-15 people and day rates depend on your teaching level.

Q: What Expenses Do You Cover?

A: We cover your travel to and from the meeting point, up to $500. Once you arrive we take care of everything else, including meals, accommodations, entry fees, and activities. We match guides to local trips so their knowledge of the area is high and their travel costs are low.

Q: Am I An Employee Or Contractor?

A: A contractor. In order to be a guide you have to have your own company (i.e. Sole Proprietorship, LLC, or Corporation). You bill us and we pay. We also highly recommend that you have insurance just in case the unexpected happens.
