Travel Video Gear Kit 2019 – Lifestyle Travel Gear

Travel Video Gear Kit 2019

For Travel Videography and Content Creators you need to produce epic footage while maintaining your mobility for International Travel. I know it’s cliche ..there has never been a better time to be a travel videographer or travel creator, but it’s also a confusing time with so many choices for gear on the market. I’ve learned some valuable lessons about selecting gear that produces high production videos and doesn’t weight you down over the year. I’ve become more of a slow traveler spending from 3 months to a year at one location, but I understand the unique needs of traveling with gear internationally. Let me serve as a guide to navigate you through a world full of confusing choices for gear. I encourage everyone to assemble their own unique gear kit based on your lifestyle, budget, and choices.

2018 Summary of my Travel Videographer and plans for 2019

Travel Videographer 2018 Journey

Hello 2019

As a Travel Videographer 2018 turned about to be a great year in many aspects. As you’ll see there was plenty of travel and my camera came along for the ride. I brought my camera in each of these locations for my Stock Footage subscribers. I’m still playing a bit of catch up with too much content sitting on my hard-drives. Be sure to check out my Youtube Channel to see some of the videos.

Plans for 2019

I would like to slow down my travel and prioritize more time on getting more content online. 2018 was a wild ride, and somewhere in there I turned 40. I plan to spend more time in Malaysia instead of Thailand in 2019. I’m pretty sure I’ll be back and forth between the two. There is also a lot of places to explore in Malaysia such as Sabah, Ipoh, and Sarawak. My grandmother is in Singapore, and I may be be due for a visit there and refresh my footage as well. Kuala Lumpur has great flights to Cambodia, Shen Zhen, and Sri lanka so don’t be surprised if there are some side trips there. I also want to try to return to Canada in the summer. I want to check out Montreal, Toronto, New York and enjoy a summer in Vancouver with the family.

Resolutions for 2019

  • I would like to lose some weight from 181 lbs to 165 lbs through exercise and better nutrition
  • Double the earnings for the business
  • Visit my family and Canada twice during the year
  • Less travel and more quality content online and marketing
  • Master Adobe Premiere on the new laptop

If you’re wondering how I sustain this travel lifestyle throughout the years I offer Video services and have many online passive revenue streams. For example, I offer freelance Videos to client in the Asia region and in Canada.  I can also offer video editing services for clients that shoot footage on vacation and don’t have time to edit.  If you want to learn more about how I create an online passive income using my footage and other business skills you need please check out my online course “How to Start an Online Business from Anywhere using Video” using this sale price link.

  1. Stock Footage – I discovered this business model by making a $90US sale on a shot from Beijing China. Most people are aware you can sell stock photos. You can do the same, but with Video Footage. For example you can license your aerial footage shot with a drone to nightlife shots done with a DSLR camera and earn from $40 to 199US a video clips. You can sell your clips on stock agencies like Shutterstock that keep a commission from 30 to 50%. Learn more about Stock Footage and which agencies to use.
  2. Gumroad – This is a great platform that allows you to sell anything digital or service related from skype coaching to PDF ebooks. You are only limited by your imagination. You have to take care of your own marketing, but gumroad plays nice with Youtube and email marketing platforms like convert kit.
  3. Online Teaching – I discovered online teaching while teaching English in Taiwan. Platforms like Udemy were growing in popularity with a built-in audience so I started teaching courses about Travel video, How to shoot with a gopro, how to do aerial footage, and do stock footage. I’ve since published 16 courses with about 6500 students on Udemy. With some camera and audio gear, some knowledge, and a desire to teach you can also teach online. It’s a good business model that is passive income and is non exclusive allowing you to build  your own school online or host your courses on other platforms like skillshare.
