Is there some air travel in your future, or are you hoping to plan a trip soon and get some great photos in a new location? If so, stop packing your bags for just a moment, because Chase Jarvis would like a word with you! A professional photographer and entrepreneur who travels extensively to shoot for big-name clients like Apple, Honda, HP, Nike and Samsung, Jarvis has just posted the latest installment in his regular video series, Chase Jarvis Raw, and the subject matter for this episode is sure to be of interest.

In the 14-minute episode, "Travel Like a Boss" (below), Jarvis runs down his top five travel tips to get you through your next trip in tip-top shape and ready to shoot. And if anything, we think Jarvis is underselling the piece, because while it is indeed split into five main sections, there are whole lot more than just five travel secrets that he'll impart within, all of them learned from experience during his many millions of miles of air travel.

In the video, you'll get Jarvis' thoughts on what to look for in your luggage and how best to pack it; how to get through airports and on to your destination with the least possible time and fuss; how to make the best of your time on the plane; what to do when it comes time to get some rest (particularly handy on long-distance flights); and what he terms "travel hacks" -- little ideas that will ensure you get the most out of your journey.

Want to know what gear to take with you on the trip? You'll find suggestions from Jarvis on this topic in an earlier video (below), and while the piece is a couple of years old now, the basics still ring true. Got any travel tips of your own?
