Have you ever wanted to take dreamy photos like the ones you see on travel blogger accounts? If your answer is, "Yes!" then get excited because we wanted to know how a travel blogger takes those photos too! So we teamed up with the gals from Dame Traveler to give us all the deets!

In this course, the editor of Dame Traveler, Laura Jean, will teach you how to capture beautiful photos while you’re on vacation. Plus, you won’t need to pack any extras in your suitcase, because all you’ll need is your smartphone!

You’ll start with the basics by learning how to use the settings on your camera phone. Then, you’ll learn how to scout for Insta-worthy locations based on where you’re going. And lastly, you’ll master how to get the perfect solo shot to help give all the wanderlust vibes!


  • Research city-specific places to take dreamy photos on your next vacation.
  • How to create visually interesting photos with angles, composition principles, and more.
  • Edit photos on some of Laura’s favorite apps like VSCO and Snapseed.

  • Huge letdown. Super general. Worth $0, only wasted my time

    First, there's only one 25min videos. I thought it would be broken out better. I thought she'd get specific on what filters to you or what editing tools to use and when. She did not. She went through editing a few basic photos but literallly didn't explain anything. I'm going to check the reviews after I post this. I can't image people are happy with this course...

  • Fun class

    This is such a great class for everyone. Highly recommend this engaging class.

  • Packed with useful tips

    This was very easy to follow and was packed with lots of useful tips about phone settings, apps and editing suggestions. I really appreciated the examples provided to illustrate the points being made.
