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.
Hi! I was born in South Africa but as a child my family relocated to Canada and lived most of adult life in beautiful British Columbia. I remember getting a VHS camcorder and would make and direct my own home videos with my sisters. I attended Simon Fraser University (SFU) with a Communications degree and had another opportunity to film an educational hip-hop video for earth quakes. After I graduated university I went on to have a successful IT career working 13 years in the field.As an IT manager I went onto pursue my MBA at SFU and found inspiration to start my own business and travel and film.By the time I had completed my MBA in 2011 I had found my passion travel, business, and filming.
During a wild and intense 3-year period I sold my house and purchased a camera and traveled the globe with my camera in search of adventure. I traveled to places such as Beijing, Singapore, Shanghai, The Grand Canyon, and Turks and Caicos. During this period a new revolution with the SLR camera was allowing people to create cinema quality video. I spent countless hours trying to learn everything I could from the best to hone my craft.I currently have over 100 videos on youtube and have one of the strongest travel video collections on the Internet. I recommend you check out my videos on-line if you’re interested in watching my videos.
After returning to Vancouver I planned my next travel adventure to Australia, Asia, and Taiwan. I sold my car and all my possessions and arrived in Taiwan with my essentials, camera gear, and my dreams. I currently live in Taiwan learning mandarin, teaching English, and filming travel videos.
I believe I’m a continuous learner (currently learning Mandarin) and I’m always looking for new and interesting ways to learn things.I get upset when an article gives advice or directions and it is so general it leaves out the important details. I try to provide detailed step-by-step instructions using visuals or video. I hope you find my courses interesting and I see you in there!
Testimonials from students of the course:
Greg has figured out a way to maximize the potential of travel videos by putting them on sites like Pond5 and Shutterstock so you an earn a passive income.
He covers many aspects of this exciting venture like explaining what sells, what kind of video cameras and gear to use and filming techniques. He not only describes but shows these techniques in the field.
Greg even walks you through the process of uploading to stock footage sites using CSV files and discusses how to manage your portfolio.
Great work Greg... nicely done!
I'm impressed! I had no idea about stock footage or how to earn income from these such agencies. Greg explains everything - equipment selection, filming techniques, editing in final cut pro (a program I would love to own, but I'm too poor) to uploading your clips on ShutterStock + Pond5. He explains what types of videos will sell and how to price them. I have plenty of footage from my travels around the world and now I feel I might be able to do something with it and earn some extra cash on the side...Great course, Thanks !!

This is what I was looking for! Been going through many online tutorials, but this course cover well the topic if you want to start a journey with stock videos.
Greg is a serious player in stock video world and you can feel his experience from early beginning of the course. His expertise saved me lots of time and money, if it comes to picking right tools and techniques!
In short - straight to the point, informative and just right to get you started!
I'm somewhat familiar with shooting video and I've edited a lot of video footage in Final Cut Pro and Adobe Premiere, but I didn't know much about making videos for stock footage.
I found the course to be very interesting and learned what I believe would be the necessary information to get started with this. I look forward to starting and seeing my first results.
