Learn to create world class-travel videos
People love video.
We’re visual creatures and video gives us a special connection to what and who we are watching. It’s engaging and exciting. Video makes everything seem more real and alive.
Nowhere is this more apparent than travel. People love to see and experience places, know what they look like, hear the sounds, and watch people interact.
It’s why the Travel Channel has been so successful – and it is why online travel videos so some of the most popular on YouTube.
If you’ve been thinking about getting into the travel video world, now the perfect time to kickstart your career making travel videos.
Video is the wave of the future in the travel industry – and there has been a big shift into video via YouTube, Instagram, and now TikTok!
Video has never been more important.
Two of the biggest travel YouTubers in the world, Nadine Sykora (from Hey Nadine) and Kristen Sarah (from Hopscotch the Globe), teach this in-depth course on how to make videos and succeed in vlogging.
Nadine and Kristen have both been making videos for over 10 years and have a combined 700,000 subscribers and 83,000,000 views (and growing). They have worked with some of the biggest brands, tourism boards, and production companies. They are two of the most successful pure travel “vloggers” on YouTube and regularly speak at industry events on the subject.
What Our Students Are Saying
This Course Is Your Roadmap to Success
Nadine and Kristen are at the top of their field — but they didn’t start out that way.
They were just like you: with a desire for travel, a passion for video, and a dream.
Like you, they didn’t know where to start, were unsure of their skills, nervous about being on camera, and made mistakes in the beginning.
In fact, Kristen used to be so afraid of filming, she couldn’t do it in front of people for fear of embarrassing herself. (And yet now she’s one of the biggest travel YouTubers out there!)
This course will give you the information Nadine and Kristen have learned through trial and error so that you don’t make the rookie mistakes most other vloggers make.
Go behind the scenes at how they make, edit, and monetize their channel. Follow them as they take you behind the scenes and take you step by step through how they film a video. Watch them edit videos as they dissect why they included certain footage (and why some ended up on the cutting room floor), and learn how they have masterfully connected with bigger stars, brands, and their readers as they get paid to travel the world.

3 Excuses That Hold People Back
Have you ever said any of the following:
“I don’t have enough time.”
There’s never going to be a moment when you have enough time. If you wait for the perfect moment to start your vlog, you’ll be waiting forever. And always be wondering “what if…”
Our lives seem to become busier each day. “There’s never enough time!” we scream. When you sign up for this course, one of the first things we teach you is time management. We’ll show you the techniques we’ve learned over the years to balance our schedules and lives so you can stop saying “there’s not enough time.”
“I don’t have a lot of money, and this course costs a lot.”
For a new vlogger, spending a couple hundred dollars on a course is not the easiest thing in the world. We remember when we started vlogging and made zero money. But what is your time worth? If you don’t have a lot of time, probably a lot. Would you rather waste it, or pay to get the right information so you can save time, work smarter, and start earning quicker?
Everything has an opportunity cost, including your limited time. You could spend weeks and months learning this on your own, trying to master editing, filming, and beating your head against the wall, wondering why no one is watching and why you aren’t making more. Or you can take a deep breath, purchase this course, avoid all of that, and let us help you make 10x more money than this course costs.
“There’s free information online.”
If all someone needed was the information, wouldn’t everyone be a wild success? Why would we need doctors when we have WebMD? Mechanics when we have YouTube? Universities when we have podcasts? I could read a book on gardening, but that doesn’t mean I’d be a world-class gardener.
No, you need more than information. You need someone who can make sense of that information. Someone who can guide you, answer your questions, give advice, help you problem-solve and distill all this information, and speed up your success.
We spend hours each day reading, digesting, collecting, and testing the best material — and discarding the worst — on earning more. It would take you thousands of hours to replicate what I’ve done. There’s been a lot of trial and error that has gotten us where we are today. And we didn’t do it alone. We had mentors. We had people help us figure out what was useful. No one rises to the top alone.
If you’re a time-starved person, spending weeks or months sorting through the free information online is not the best use of your time — and it’s going to cause you to make lots of mistakes. Wouldn’t you rather cut to the chase so you don’t waste your time?
