MatadorU Online Freelancer Course

MatadorU Online Freelancer Course

MatadorU provides comprehensive and practical e-courses on Travel Writing, Travel Photography and Travel Filmmaking. All courses are online so you can be based anywhere or just travel same time as you study. There is a great need for talented travel writers, photographers and filmmakes in the online freelancing world as well, and to get premium rate you need to show talent – which you’ll definitely get by attending these courses.

I wish I had seen MatadorU at the time when I wanted to learn travel photography, but did not. So best option for me at that time was to learn by watching Youtube and reading numerous books and articles online. It took lot of time and effort, and still do not know how to get free press trips. Not that I am looking to make full-time career out of freelance travel photography, but it is a great hobby of mine.

I have heard so many great things about MatadorU course and instructors insider knowledge on for example how to get free or paid press tips. I have met many of their students who have all been very happy with their (small) investment, that has paid dividend very soon after starting the course – and still keeps paying!

If your aim is one day to become a travel writer or photographer for National Geographic – you’ve just hit the jackpot as…

National Geographic Traveler, the world’s most widely read travel magazine, is looking to Matador to help us find new talent–writers, videographers, and multimedia reporters.
