After finishing our studies in Denmark, I and my Fiancé decided to quit our jobs and travel around Asia for a year. We had some savings for the trip, but I – an entrepreneurial spirit – started questioning the ROI or return on investment of this trip.
I understood the spiritual value of traveling, however, I just couldn’t help noticing the amount of money we will spend. Thinking of ways to monetize our travel, I came across stock footage.
I knew nothing about stock photos, stock footage. I didn’t understand videography, editing or drone operation. Literally, nothing. But, discovering the possibility of making money while I sleep from footage I took while traveling was an incredible motivation for me. A way to passive income.
I started researching, reading, watching and listening to everything I could before our trip started. I got a basic Canon 200d and a Mavic Air drone and started practicing.
It was fairly easy to learn how to shoot – there are tons of good tutorials online, but what I discovered was, there was not a lot of information online on what the stock footage industry is all about. I had to watch hours and hours of YouTube videos just to find out that I wasn’t getting anywhere. Even when I had the best clips, I screwed up my metadata and submissions, therefore my clips never showed in the search results. It was devastating not to know how to do things the right way.
After 2 years of reading, learning, consulting with agencies, SEO experts, videographers, drone operators and people who made a living off of stock footage, I finally can say I am ready to share my knowledge and help you skip the hustle I went through and armor you with the skills to making money right away.
Why should you sell stock footage?
As you will learn in the course, stock footage production can be a hobby or a business. Either way:
- It is a lot of fun
- You can be your own boss
- You can do it remotely
- You can build another source of passive income
- Make money while you sleep
- Repurpose your unused footage
Don’t have time to shoot? Good news for you then! You don’t need to! Why, you ask? Hard drive mining!
Most cinematographers I know have several terabytes of footage lying around on their hard drives. With the right approach, you can repurpose your footage, submit them as stock, and they could literally make you hundreds or even thousands of dollars while you sleep.

Whether you are a veteran cinematographer, a professional or beginner drone pilot or a passionate “iPhone wizard,” this course will show you how you can become successful in selling stock footage for fun and for fortune.
