Just basic, nothing usefull for man who takes cam more then 5 times. Very dubious value, author's photos are questionable quality too, so, I think that Phil has to improve his skills before teaching others. I recomend the class only for beginers, starters :) Best wishes, Phil!

Everything in this course seems very basic. This feels more like a generic intro to photography class vs niche style of photography class. Since this feels more like a Generic Photography course, I can't recommend it. There are no assignments, no goals set forth by Phil, and for the most part he just shows examples of things he's done that feel more like vacation snapshots than striving to make a living out of travel photography. I also can't say I recommend stuffing a bag full of camera gear for hikes, and certainly don't recommend a flash (or "Speedlite" as he often calls it, which is just Canon's name for their flash) unless you're shooting a specific modeled look that isn't really the style of travel photography (maybe adventure photography?) All-in-all, this is a good course for people new to photography, but the course kind of wanders through topics. If that's what you're after I'd recommend a few other intro courses before this one as they're easier to comprehend and more thought out. Plus, they force you to get out and take actual photos which is the best education vs just looking at examples.
