It's a course we've named 'Travel The World for (Nearly) Free With Your Camera.'
This course goes start to finish through everything we have done to start getting 5 star hotels and resorts to offer us free stays in exchange for photography for their social media.
Results will vary, but if you're willing to put in a bit of work, there are a lot of amazing opportunities out there.

I know this sounds a little too good to be true, but this is something that has changed our lives, and allowed us to travel all over the world and stay at some of the most beautiful 5 star properties on the planet. All for free, or mostly free.
The basis of it is pretty simple. You create value for them with my DSLR or iPhone, they give free hotel nights in return.
Let’s start from one year ago:
In July of 2015 I had 800 followers on Instagram. Which is pretty good, but I didn’t have the Hilton Bora Bora knocking on my door to visit them. I did want to travel though - so, instead I just started emailing a few smaller hotels, and asking if I could come take some Instagram photos for them in exchange for 3 nights at their hotel.
Note: I’ve included all of the email scripts that I used when I was first getting started in this course.
From there it wasn’t long before I had my first offer.
It was around this time that I also started taking my Instagram and social media presence more seriously. I knew that it would be easier for hotels and brands to trust me, if they could see that I had a bit of following online.
Over the next 10 months, my instagram followers grew by over 10,000 people at first and then all the way up to 28,000. There is a section in this course that outlines all the steps I took to grow from under 1000 to 28,000 followers on Instagram. It’s a lot of work, but it certainly pays off when you’re looking to make traveling and travel photography your job.
Now you might be saying that you’re afraid that your photography isn’t good enough to get you free hotel rooms, or that you don’t have the proper camera equipment.
Well, 2 pieces of good news.
ABOUT 30% of what I usually end up delivering is shot on my iPhone. In fact, a few episodes of my travel show A Photographer In were shot on iPhone - New York City was one of them.
There is an entire section of this course devoted to travel photography with both an iPhone and a DSLR. Quite honestly, that section is an entire course on its own. We do on location portraits in Italy, resort and wedding photography in Jamaica while you are on top of my camera, and iPhone photography in Miami. The photography section of the course is broken down into equipment, lighting, composition, and post production. Sit with me on my computer while I edit an entire travel photography shoot. As well as learn how I edit on my iPhone on the go. If you’ve seen any of my photos on Instagram, it was edited on my iPhone.
There is so much in this course it’s almost overwhelming.
It is a start to finish, step by step process to get you into free 5 star hotel rooms all around the world. I know you’re probably thinking, that if it’s this easy, why isn’t everyone doing this already?
The truth is that it takes work to email back and forth. It might seem like the easiest part, but that is what you’ll end up spending hours behind your computer doing.
Lucky for you, I’m including the scripts and email templates that I’ve been working on for over 5 years and you can start using them right away. It hurts a little to give away all of this hard work, but they are really the most important part of this course.
This is something unique that you’re not going to find anywhere else, because no one else is using this system yet.
Since our Kickstarter has closed, this is the only place in the world you can get this course right now.
