About This Course
Who this course is for:
- Photographers and videographers who want to turn their skill into business
What you’ll learn:
- The information and skills you need to start running your video and photography company
- Business model for earning an income with your videos
This course is designed to fill the gap and arm you with the information and skills you need to start running your video and photography company. I’ve structured the course so it is logical – beginning with the basics and progressing to skills you’ll need to learn as you get customers and deliver your products to them. I also introduce a different business model for earning an income with your videos for those that are not comfortable with networking and meeting new people.
I’ve created this course because I’ve been through the struggles to figure out how to run a video business and want to pass on what I learned. My hope is by taking this course, you can save a lot of the time, money, and effort it took me to figure out what I’ve learned so far.
Too many courses focus on the technical side of video and photography. It is important, but just one aspect of running a video and photography company. I’ve learned the hard way that taking a great video or a great photo doesn’t mean automatic success.
You have to develop skills that often aren’t taught in video and photography classes, things like:
- Getting assembling gear kits
- Getting a logo
- Getting a website
- Developing a portfolio
- Investing in yourself
- Social media
- Getting your first sale
- Game day – preparation & shotlist

About the Instructor:
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 earthquakes. 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 on to 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 a 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.
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!
