Master the Art of Travel Photography
Pictures aren’t something you just take with your camera or phone — they are moments that moved you so much you had to freeze them forever.
Think about how you feel when you look a beautiful photograph. That sense of wonder, that feeling of awe.
There’s nothing better than looking at a photo and realizing that you took that beautiful image!
But have you said any of the following:
“I wish my pictures were better!”
“I don’t have any fancy camera so my pictures will never be as good.”
Or thought that editing photos requires you to have expensive software and lots of skill?
I hear these statements all the time.
But don’t worry.
Taking beautiful photos isn’t as hard as you think. It doesn’t require buying expensive equipment, fancy studios, or high-tech editing software.
All you need is dedication and the right concepts.
Concepts you’ll learn in this photography masterclass taught by some of the best travel photographers in the world!
What Our Students are saying
“I loved photography well before taking the course, but I was always jealous of how amazing other peoples’ photos looked. I knew I needed to find a way to get better. The course covered all the essentials of photography to get you up and running quickly. I noticed my photography skills improved leaps and bounds just one month into the course. What’s great is you can take the course at your own pace, so you never feel overwhelmed. Best of all, you have Laurence and other students at your disposal to get your questions answered at any time. I’m so glad I took this course and made the leap away from auto mode on my camera!” – Brian
“This course is supremely practical and useful and helped me adjust the way I approach photography. I have calibrated my eye to find better shots everywhere and expanded my ability to use my equipment to work for me instead of befuddle me. In spite of having lived in the DC area for over 20 years, I feel like I’m now seeing it for the first time!” – Michael
“I really enjoyed the course. It’s well structured and is filled with good advice. I love how I can take the course at my own pace and, if there is an issue, Laurence steps in to help you out. This course awakes your passion and keeps you going, exploring the world through the lens. I want to get more into the storytelling with my pictures and, with the course, I got the right tools now.” – Marion
I’ve tried other online photography classes but felt discouraged with a lot of the lessons. This course helped me learn my camera by going through easy, tangible assignments. Laurence is super supportive and responsive. He gave me many suggestions to improving my photos. I recommend taking this course!” – Kristin

How These Students Broke Out of Auto…
“The Superstar Blogging Travel Photography course helped me use my DSLR to its full potential after 5 years of using it as a “point and shoot”. Learning to utilize all the controls and understanding composition really increased my confidence with my camera and helped me create increasingly better photos. No regrets here, and I’ll be signing up to more courses in the future!” – Monique
“I desperately wanted to learn about travel photography, but the high price tag of most courses turned me off. But the price of this course was so good, I had to try it! The value of this course is unbelievable (as in, when I tell my friends about it, they literally don’t believe me), especially since you receive feedback from such talented photographers as you progress through the lessons. My favorite part is that I can go at my own pace — it’s easy to just take a week or two off, then pick up where I left off. I was a beginner when I started, but after the first lesson, I already felt more confident in my ability to take photos.” – Dan
“This comprehensive travel photography class is a fantastic investment for newbies, hobby photographers, and even experienced photographers who are looking to take their skills to the next level. I can confidently say the in-depth material in this course has improved multiple aspects of my practice. It encouraged me to take the plunge and shoot in RAW format as opposed to JPG and taught me ways to market myself and my work. It’s clear that a ton of love and effort was put into this course. I would undoubtedly recommend it to any photography enthusiast!” – Josie
I’ve taken other photography courses before but none of them were able to explain things in a way that I can follow clearly. Taking this course by Matt and Laurence was my last desperate try at learning travel photography. And boy was I glad I did! The instructions and teaching were easy to comprehend and I loved how Laurence was (and is) always just an email away for help. People now always comment on how beautiful and professional my blog and Instagram photos look. I give full credits to this wonderful course!” – Viola

What Our Students are saying
“I’ve been an iPhone travel photographer. When I bought a new “real” camera for my RTW trip, I realized quickly that “auto” mode wasn’t gonna cut it. I signed up for the Travel Photography Course, and within 3 months I was taking and editing the best photos of my life. Seriously. With Laurence’s clear and effective instruction, I felt knowledgeable enough to get started with my camera, inspired to explore on my own, and – this is the best part – motivated to continue when things got hard. Trust me, you need all three. Thanks, Laurence and Matt!” – Will
“I’d been thinking about buying a new camera and wanting to learn how to take better photos, but I didn’t know where to start. So when this course came around, I signed up. The lessons are clearly explained, and I think the homework is an excellent way of checking my understanding and applying the knowledge gained. When I submitted my work, I got helpful feedback within hours. And because it is online, I can study wherever I am, any time of day or night. I would not hesitate to recommend this course. I now feel confident in my photography ability and am already taking better pictures!” – Kay
I decided to purchase a camera because of a trip I would be taking around the world! Finding the right camera for one self can be daunting. Once I found my camera, learning how to use it was the next challenge. This course not only teaches you how to take full control over your camera and composition, it also opens your eyes to things around you that you may not have noticed before! Great program, go at your own pace!” – Michael
