Making money with your Travel videos

There are various ways to make money with your travel videos. As a Canadian Videographer that has lived primarily in Asia since 2013 (7 years) now I have some expertise in this area. I do have to tell  you that in 2020 there is a lot of competition, and a lot of hard work and passion will be required to break through. That being said the knowledge is out there and if you have the gear, passion, and put in the hard work you have a good chance to enjoy a life of time and location freedom following your passion.

I struggled for years to figure out how to make money with my passion for travel and making videos. I focused a lot of time on the gear and the technique of making videos while spending a lot of money on traveling. 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. This popular course is one of my best-selling courses on and now it is available on

Different from other ways to making money with Travel Videos

There are other ways of earning an income with your travel videos like vacation videos and producing videos for businesses while on your travel. Making money with your Travel videos using Stock footage gives you the freedom to shoot what you want on your own schedule. Once your video clips are on-line they can sell an unlimited number of times and you can have the option on selling them on more than one website. It is a form of passive income. You can earn 30-40 $US with a 10 second video HD clip.
