AS FEATURED IN

Jord Hammond here,

writing to you from THE

Land of Stagnant Instagram Accounts

You may be familiar with this place.

It’s where photographers...

Try third-party IG growth services, but the follow & unfollow game only drifts them further away from consistent IG growth.

Post stunning photos but aren't getting the reach they're after... and wonder if the market is just too saturated.

Feel like they're in constant battle-mode with the Algorithm Gods who keep burying their photos, and are keeping their accounts from playing big.
Because of this and more, so many amazingly creative photographers aren’t making the most out of their talents.

and it gets worse...

Not only are they struggling with consistent growth on Instagram, they don't know how to approach clients and start making money through photography...

Because Without The Engagement and First-Hand Industry Know-How...

  • Your account doesn’t get approached by potential clients
  • Your portfolio doesn't get viewed
  • ​​Your cold pitches don’t get responded to
And here's the final crux for us travel photographers...

People think that because of a certain COVID-19...

That there is zero business available right now for photographers.

And this destroys me.

Because photography is needed
more than ever right now!

Let me tell you why...

Local travel has already skyrocketed. Travelers are still traveling– they have simply just become tourists in their own countries, finding new discoveries in their backyard more than ever.
Future travel is getting redefined, and every facet of the travel industry will need to reposition their message. This means ALL new visuals to stay relevant, to promote their new changes, and to instill trust in their new guests.
By 2030, there will be an estimated 1.8 billion tourists worldwide per year, according to the United Nations World Tourism Organization – that's 400 million more than last year. This stat was released at the height of the Coronavirus.
Potential travelers will overlook destinations and businesses if their content is out of touch and doesn't reflect the times. That’s a whole lotta opportunity for photographers in the travel industry to help businesses stay relevant.
The future of travel is both touchless and digital. Travel content will change, as well as communication between tourists, countries, and businesses. Ultimately, the need for visual representation of these changes is abundantly profound.

The travel industry is not going anywhere.

In fact, it’s headed towards you with a vengeance.

The opportunity for you right now as a travel photographer is in full swing.
And in order to solidify jobs and get paid for your work - you need to know how to present your passion as a reputable business owner.

Regardless if your photography goal is to go full-time or not.

You still need to have business processes set up and structure in place to...

grow your Instagram account.
grow your EXPERIENCES.
Grow your opportunities.
Grow your income.

Hey friend,

In this course, I’m sharing what I believe to be the best Instagram and Business system ever built for travel photographers.

It’s something I realised I was bloody good at after exploding my IG following to over 770,000 followers in the last five years.

The lifestyle perks that have come with it have been incredible, and I’m honoured and humbled to have worked with some of the biggest names in the industry. Now it's time for me to show you how to do the same!
AS FEATURED IN

Can you imagine:

  • Looking at all the loyal, comment-happy followers who connect with you and graciously invest in your work.
  • Hearing pings from DMs sliding into your inbox from clients hunting YOU down!
  • ​​​Seeing your photos published in your favourite travel magazines.
  • ​​Getting asked to attend trips and be an ambassador for your favourite brands... all while being paid to do so!

All this and more is what I am about to teach you.

Because besides taking amazing photos

(which I know you've already nailed),

(which I know you've already nailed),

you need these two things to advance in the photography industry:

A SOLID PERSONAL BRAND

You need to grow and nurture a professional, engaged community surrounding your work on Instagram.
There's a lot of noise out there, and it’s time to set yourself apart instead of just adding to it. Does your audience...
  • Feel like your feed is a mini-magazine written just for them?
  • ​​Connect with your style and trust you as a brand?
  • ​See your content as a breath of fresh air because it isn't replicated by anyone else?
  • ​​​Flood your stories and comments every time you go live?

BUSINESS SYSTEMS IN PLACE

You need to have your workflows and systems set up, so it’s super simple for others to work with you.
Once DMs start popping up in your account from potential clients (congrats!), you’ll be met with a new range of uncertainties like how to...
  • Send a proper pitch that makes them double fist pump while signing your contract
  • ​​Close the deal with ease and confidence
  • ​Implement processes that inspire them to want to work with you
  • ​Ensure clients come back for a second, third and fourth project with you

All of this is what I want for you.

All of this is what I want for you.

Because once you learn to GROW your Instagram account, you also need to learn both how you can leverage it for business, and how to make an income without it. (And this is where so many others get it wrong).

That’s why you’ll be focusing on these two pillars inside one course: growing your Instagram account AND learning the business systems so you can make money from photography.

That’s why today, on this page only...

I want to personally invite you to my breakthrough business-building and mentorship program for travel photographers...

The Business of Travel Photography course vs. every other IG and travel photography business course out there

Other similar courses on the market

Content is very general and not specific to travel photography, and most high-impact techniques are reserved for 1:1 up-sells or their high-ticket masterminds.
Usually only Q&A calls (if that) to answer student questions with limited focus on actual implementation of the program.
Helps you with either Instagram OR Business but doesn't teach you how to use BOTH together to actually profit. 
Teachers hit expert-status and become too difficult to reach and connect with online. Private Facebook groups usually aren't active and teacher rarely replies to students on the group.

The Business of Travel Photography

Super-specific and value-driven content. This course builds off each chapter and leaves nothing on the table and no room for guessing. Every angle you need to WIN with your photography is broken down into 15 effective and easy-to-understand modules that turn your passion into a profitable business.
Execution-focused with quizzes for each module, LIVE group coaching, and personalized feedback throughout.
Teaches you the TWO vital pillars to make money from photography: the growth of your Instagram account + the systems of a business owner.
My students are the life-blood of my business and my accessibility to them is paramount. My mission is to ALWAYS create content, always share value, and always connect with my people. Seriously, even with 690K followers, I still respond virtually to every single DM!

The Business of Travel Photography Is For You If:

You are a travel photographer who wants to get more out of your talents and life.

That means - whether you have long-term goals of going full-time, an immediate hope of working with a specific company, plans to get some side gigs, or are new to photography altogether and not sure what you want - this course will help you get crystal clear on where you want to take it.

Module 3 is designed specifically to help you flush your options out - so regardless of your end goal - you will receive the content and support to create a photography business your way, on your terms. And the way the implementation aspect is structured - quiz modules, Facebook support, accountability– you can bet we’re gonna get you there.

Overall, you’re here because you’re interested in growing your following and using it as a launchpad to making money from your photography talents. I’m ecstatic to help you carve out the YOU shaped (camera) hole in the market to make it happen.

Did We Mention It's Risk-Free?

The ‘Build Your Business,’ No-Hassle Guarantee
The Business of Travel Photography comes with a 100% guarantee... But it doesn't just stop there. That’s because I understand the risk of investing in a digital product before you’ve seen it. (Especially as photographers – you and I both know that seeing is believing.)

Here’s my promise to you – I promise that you will view Instagram and the understanding of how to grow your photography business in a completely new light with all kinds of new knowledge. You will have increasingly more confidence to get visible and understand the options you have in front of you to take on paid photography jobs. You’ll come out of this course with a step-by-step plan ready to put in motion to grow your account and grow your business in ways you may have never considered.
There's a good reason I’m a successful photographer – I take your passion very seriously because I whole-heartedly believe that photographers have the power to do so much good in the world. Our world needs photographers like you. This program was created to give you the clarity, the tools, and the support you need to grow your reach and convert your skills into income.

That’s why as you dig in and prior to consuming 20% of the material, if you can show me you have implemented what you have learned and haven’t found the program worth your investment, you can ask for a full refund, as I would not feel right keeping your money. This course was created for you to succeed, and I stand by my word to make that happen.

Who Am I to Teach You?

Hey, I'm Jord Hammond!

I moved to China, bought a Canon 700D, pursued my passion, and built the lifestyle of my dreams. Five years later, I’m educating other photographers on how to do the same.

While I always had a creative talent brewing inside me, it truly came out when I started photographing my adventures. Things like witnessing eagle hunters in the remote mountains of West Mongolia, and capturing the sunset over the Great Wall of China. From that moment, I knew I needed the freedom lifestyle that continued to support these free-minded missions.

Since then, I’ve built a multiple 6-figure business that allows me to travel wide-open, document random Wednesday sunrises, and take spontaneous adventures just for the joy of snapping a picture.

The Bottom Line...

If you’ve been following me for a while, you may know a bit about my personality:

loyal & brutally honest.

I’ll always give it to you straight. And the truth is that, sure, you can try to do this alone. But here’s what usually happens when people choose this route: they continue to travel a few times a year, taking good photos, but they don’t see any significant growth on their Instagram. They keep trying to email or DM brands to no avail, and they become pretty damn fed up with their lack of success in the industry.

Because without the proper direction and support, you’ll be wasting time, wasting money, battling algorithms, and taking on unnecessary & underpaid work that won’t launch you towards your goal.

I warned you I was brutally honest ;)

When you join me and your fellow photographers inside The Business of Travel Photography course, you will know exactly what you need to focus on to grow your Instagram account and your personal brand. The exact step-by-step process is meticulously laid out for you. You’ll feel confident approaching clients for work, and you’ll know the steps to take to make money within the travel photography space, both from clients and through selling your own brand and products, too.

Ultimately, you’ll know how to leverage yourself as both a photographer and influencer, and you’ll have the motivation and know-how to make a huge change in your lifestyle.

And I’ll have your back every step of the way...

Enrolment Isn't Here Long...

Just like a college or university, enrolment is only open for a short period of time. Then I shift gears to focus on teaching, supporting, and helping you create a growing social media presence and a thriving business.

Don't just take my word for it...

Where We Go From Here...

I’m sick of seeing all those other ‘influencers’ shoving opinions down aspiring photographers' throats, hoping you believe that their way is the only way to succeed.

That’s not how it works around here.

This is YOUR business and YOUR journey, and I want to provide you with every tested and proven method so your photography business can work for you.

Let me help you prove to everyone around you that you are capable of reaching significant income through your strikingly gorgeous photos. I’ve broken it down and am giving away all my travel photography business secrets, so you too can become part of the business photography movement.

I’ll see you on the inside!
