About This Class

How many times have you flipped through a travel magazine and been inspired by an exotic photo of some far off destination? Ever wondered what it takes to capture amazing photos like that? This course is for you: for you the wanderer, the explorer, the vacationer, the mom, the dad, the loved one. This course is for anyone looking to take better photographs while traveling. I truly believe anyone can take amazing photos. With the skills and techniques learned in this course, you'll be taking travel magazine worthy photos in no time!

We'll cover the basics of what it means to be a photographer. In this first section we'll be covering:

  • Best camera options
  • Complete equipment check

We'll cover the basics of professional photography, which apply to travel photographers such as:

  • Exposure
  • ISO, Shutter Speed, Aperture,
  • Depth of Field
  • Composition
  • White Balance
  • Lighting
  • Thinking outside the box
  • And more!

I'll show you some of my award winning, and gallery shown photographs. I'll discuss in detail how the photograph came to be, the difficulties taking it. For each photograph we'll cover lighting, composition, and why I took the photograph.

A complete section on shooting portraits will enhance your portrait skills. We'll talk about how to improve your flash photography. You'll be taking great group shots in no time!

A complete section on photo editing covers the basics of editing your photographs to make them pop! We'll be using Adobe Lightroom, a program that you can download a free trial (I'll show you how). What will we be covering in this section?

For all of these lessons, you will follow along as I edit my own travel photos from places like the Philippines, France, Italy, India, Mexico, across the United States, Chile, and more top destinations.

I am confident that you will be a much better photographer after taking these lessons. After your next trip, you'll have artwork worthy of your walls.

Thank you for your time!

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!

MORE ABOUT PHIL:

I've always tried to live life presently and to the fullest. Some of the things I love to do in my spare time include mountain biking, nerding out on personal finance, traveling to new places, watching sports (huge baseball fan here!), and sharing meals with friends and family. Most days you can find me spending quality time with my lovely wife and our cat.

In 2011, I graduated with my Bachelor of Arts in Film and Television Production at Loyola Marymount University - one of the top 10 film schools in the country. While there, I was fortunate to make documentaries in Switzerland, Germany, Mexico, and India. After graduating, I worked at Participant Media shooting and editing short-form documentaries for their website TakePart. I followed that stint with a contract at Stanbridge College where I discovered online learning. I helped pioneer their online school there. Most recently, I spent 2 years working at University of California Berkeley with the media team. Throughout this time I built my Video School Online brand to teach others the skills that I have. In May of 2015, I left the 9-5 world to make my own path. Since then, I've made more money, worked fewer hours, and only have done the things I love each day.

I want to show you how to be a better creator, make money from your creations, and live the life you dreamed of.
