I struggled for years to figure out how to make money with my passion for travel and making videos. After many travel videos on Youtube that earned me very little, a stock footage agency in Singapore contacted me to organize my video collection and sell it over the Internet. I organized my collection and figured out how to get my collection on-line making money for me. Finally I figured it out. Nothing more exciting than seeing sales on the video clips.

If you have a passion for Travel, video, or even photography I want to share how you can make money with your passions and save you the struggle. This is a practical hands-on course that will teach you everything to need to start creating travel videos and making money with them on stock footage agencies.

While I do love this class I felt like their were a few things missing from the videos for example (software programs that you use & how to get written promotion from those in the videos if needed)
Great class that helped me get started with shooting stock footage. It answered lots of logistical questions I had about legal requirements and camera types, and got me pointed in the right direction for starting uploading to the most popular stock video agencies.
