Course Description

You're here because you want to become a wedding videographer, right?

Great idea, my friend. 

Average wedding videographers make over $3,000 per wedding. Great videographers can make $10,000+ per wedding. And money isn't the only reason to be a wedding videographer. It is an important job that helps capture a beautiful day and preserve memories for a lifetime.

I went from charging $250 to over $3,000 per wedding in just 12 months. You can do the same!

What makes me qualified to teach you?

My name is Phil, and I started my own successful wedding videography business in 2011. Plus, I'm the creator of some of the world's most popular photography courses - with over 150,000 students and thousands of 5-star reviews like these ones from this course:

So easy to understand and very helpful! - Lara Snead

I'm still only partially through the course, but this course is incredibly fun, engaging, and the adventures at the ends of the lessons help you actually set up your own business! - Addie Lynn Minnis

Excellent job, really goes through everything in great detail. - Joel Hiscutt

I went to film school and my college managed to skip over important details and questions in the industry, like contracts and pricing, that this short course helped to educate me in. If there's anything that you feel isn't fully explained in this course then just ask the instructor and he'll answer your questions. - Joseph Sockey

MORE ABOUT PHIL:

I've always tried to live life presently and to the fullest. Some of the things I love to do in my spare time include mountain biking, nerding out on personal finance, traveling to new places, watching sports (huge baseball fan here!), and sharing meals with friends and family. Most days you can find me spending quality time with my lovely wife and our cat.

In 2011, I graduated with my Bachelor of Arts in Film and Television Production at Loyola Marymount University - one of the top 10 film schools in the country. While there, I was fortunate to make documentaries in Switzerland, Germany, Mexico, and India. After graduating, I worked at Participant Media shooting and editing short-form documentaries for their website TakePart. I followed that stint with a contract at Stanbridge College where I discovered online learning. I helped pioneer their online school there. Most recently, I spent 2 years working at University of California Berkeley with the media team. Throughout this time I built my Video School Online brand to teach others the skills that I have. In May of 2015, I left the 9-5 world to make my own path. Since then, I've made more money, worked fewer hours, and only have done the things I love each day.

I want to show you how to be a better creator, make money from your creations, and live the life you dreamed of.
