What you will learn
Welcome to Motorcycle Vlogging 101
Since I started creating motorcycle travel videos on my YouTube channel Itchy Boots, I started receiving questions about the gear and equipment I use for filming, how I manage to fly a drone while riding a motorcycle and how I edit my videos.
Soon I realised that motorcycle vlogging is a very specific niche within vlogging, which comes with specific demands for filming and editing. In the past years I learned a lot about what works and what doesn’t when it comes to storytelling, filming and editing motorcycle vlogging videos.
In Motorcycle Vlogging 101, I will teach you all that I learned about creating motorcycle travel vlogs, in just four weeks!
This course consists of 4 Units. Each unit has several instruction videos, a summarizing text, and at the end of each Unit you will receive a challenge. So prepare yourself to do some homework! These challenges are the 4 steps towards creating your own motorcycle vlog. I look forward to seeing your results!

This course has in total 3 hours of instruction videos. When you have completed all the lessons, you will receive an Itchy Boots certificate in your e-mailbox.
Will the course be updated?
Yes, I will add new information to the course about twice a year. For instance, when I am using new equipment or change my editing software. Once you’ve bought the course, you will have life-long access and receive notifications when the course has been updated!
I don't have a lot of time, is this course for me?
No worries, you can do this course in your own pace. So if you want to take it slow, you can take it slow. When you have plenty of time, you can go through the online videos faster.
I am not very technical. Will I understand the material?
Yes, actually creating a motorcycle vlog is not so much about equipment but more about storytelling, using your filming equipment at the right time, and editing it well in the end. And don’t forget, you can pause the instruction videos as many times as you want or rewatch them as often as you need!
What equipment do I need to complete the challenges in your course?
For the challenges, you only require a smartphone or GoPro, a selfiestick, and/or mount on your bike or helmet for the camera. Trust me, you don't need the most professional equipment when you start vlogging. To edit your first motorcycle vlog, you will need a basic editing program. In my course, I share the setup for Imovie and Filmora. Both editing programs are for free.
I’ve paid for the course, but I’ve changed my mind. Can I get my money back?
Make sure you are fully committed to following this course before you make a payment. After you’ve bought the course, and access has been giving to the materials, it’s no longer possible to issue a refund.
Can I take the courses on a mobile device?
Yes, the course can be followed on all devices. It’s recommended however to follow the course on a desktop as it will be more comfortable to view the videos on a larger screen.
