Get Paid to See Rain Forests, Wildlife, and Europe

I am a full-time travel videographer, which means I get paid to travel the world and shoot videos for travel companies. I’ve been doing it for the past 10 years and I’m now making about $80,000 a year at it. Being a travel videographer is a dream job. I had always dreamt of going on safari in Africa and capturing the wildlife with my camera.

Get Paid $30,500 for a Summer Trip to Europe

I love traveling around Europe...and being able to earn as I travel is a real bonus. Last summer I visited eight European destinations and got paid four times from my travels. In total, my trip to Europe earned me $30,500. I had wanted to visit Belgium for some time, particularly the medieval city of Bruges, with its cobbled streets, canals, and perfectly preserved old buildings, so I organized some assignments there. I finally got to climb the 366 steps of the famous Belfry of Bruges and enjoyed a wonderful view over this historic town...I took a canal tour and heard stories about the rich heritage of this prosperous place...I had a wonderful dinner in one of the many canal-side restaurants.

Get Paid to Tour the World—Up to $4,000 a Trip

I live an idyllic life on a Spanish island, named Fuerteventura, one of the Canary Islands, off the coast of Africa. Here, the temperatures are between 70 F and 85 F all year round, with 350 days of sun. I am surrounded by beautiful, white-sand beaches and I get to surf the waves every day. This is the ideal base for me. And in just four hours I can be back in Central Europe, where I do a lot of my "work." As a travel videographer being on the road is just like being a tourist with a list of attractions to visit, the only difference being that I am getting paid for it. In fact, I can get paid up to $4,000 or more per trip by making short videos for tourist boards, hotels, tour companies, spas, and anyone looking to promote a tourist attraction on a website.

The Secret to Making Good Money from Almost Any Country You Choose

Imagine living in Europe, Africa, or Australia and earning a living while traveling around and discovering the continent. Sounds too good to be true? Well this is exactly what I have been doing for about six years now. I started off in Africa because I had always wanted to go on a safari but could never afford it.

How to Make…and Sell…Great Travel Videos

Before I became a travel videographer I studied Tourism Management in the UK. I then worked as a research assistant in Costa Rica, a hostel manager in New Zealand, and a travel consultant in London. Naturally consulting other people on the best travel options was not quite as satisfying as traveling myself, so I finally came up with an idea that would allow me to work while traveling around.
