THANK YOU for showing interest in our GUIDE. We are so excited to have you here because we love to share our knowledge with you on how to shoot a travel video!

Right after the introduction, we’ll start with the first section what will be all about what gear you need to shoot your travel video and, based on budget, which gear we recommend to purchase. Camera’s, lenses, drones, and other equipment will be discussed!
The second section will explain in-depth how to understand your gear in terms of technical information. This is the most important section to control. We know from our own experience it can be frustrating to have a €2000 camera, but don’t know how to use it or get the best out of it.
The third part will be the creative section where you will learn the cinematic rules, camera movements and how to use natural light to create professional-looking footage of your adventures.

We are Atiba & Ilse, also known as Digital Travel Couple and wrote this complete guide from our experiences we’ve gained in the challenging process of start making travel videos.
As little children we were always fascinated by cameras. Atiba can still remember how interested he was in old fashioned tape recorders. Seeing the process of how his parents captured the home videos and projected it on screen was always something that intrigued him.Ilse used disposable cameras one after the other and was always in the hunt to capture nature related images very differently what most children did that time. These memories awoke the new-found passion for video- and photography.
Also, we purchased a drone in 2017 and started making aerial videos and photos during our travels. Shortly after that, we purchased our first professional camera, the Panasonic GH5 and in a very natural way we fell in love with our new passion which is creating high-quality videos and photos of travel adventures!
Because we love to share our work with other people we started our Instagram & YouTube channel. Over the time we’ve received amazingly positive feedback on our work and the people who followed us from the beginning were amazed by how steep our learning curve is in creating travel videos.
From the first moment, we received a lot of questions about the gear we use and how to create travel videos as we do. We know from our experience there is not one simple answer to learn shooting travel videos. So our goal is to have a large part of your questions answered with the help of this complete guide!
