Practical Videography

LWP Practical Videography Course

Practical Videography

Imagine the possibilities when you can shoot high quality videos with your mirrorless camera. You will learn how in this course!

Other videography courses teach you the theory behind shooting videos, but I take an approach that’s more hands-on. You’ll get weekly drills in which we practice videography using simple techniques and tools available to all video creators – no matter their skill level!

Learn to shoot high quality videos with gear that fits into your daypack

You want to start shooting videos but don’t know how?

Or you already started and they didn’t turn out well!

Let’s change that together..

I always had a passion for videography, but I stayed away from all the complicated stuff, like shooting in manual, etc., for a long time. And guess what? My videos looked bad and amateurish.

Of course, I wanted to fix that. So within about half a year I went from a camera-noob with decent editing skills to getting my first $3000 video production job.

That did not come from sitting at home, watching tutorials. I developed these skills by shooting videos as often as I could. And in my Practical Videography Course, I want you to do the same.

So I designed this course in a way that actually makes you shoot more videos. To do so, we work with drills. I developed these drills from my own video production experiences together with traditional photography drills. This way you learn videography extremely fast.

The Modules

Module #1 – How to shoot videos outside

Shooting outdoor- & travel videos can be hard as you mostly have to work with what you get. You can’t control the light, the weather etc. So you have to know what you’re doing to get good results.

So in this module I show you all my outdoor shooting techniques.

  • How do I expose my shots, use natural light and handle white balance?
  • How do I frame my shots?
  • How do I move my camera?
  • How do I shoot in-camera transitions?
  • and a lot more…

Module #2 – How to shoot videos inside

Shooting indoor gives you much more control over your light and the scene. The hard parts here are to set everything up correctly, position lights, capture good audio etc.

Every drill consists of two videos. In the first video, I tell you exactly, what to do and how to do it. In the second video I come to a conclusion of the drill, so you experience is the same or you did something wrong.

Your Instructor

Pascal is a world traveler and video creator, originally from Germany, currently based in Thailand.

When he started creating videos, it was quite hard as quality gear was very expensive or not existent.

Today the problem is no longer the gear, but finding the right one and learning how to use it properly. So he made it his mission to teach people how to create great looking videos with affordable cameras and gear.

Is this course suitable for beginners?

Yes, I made this course for beginners.

If you already know a bit more about video shooting but you’re not satisfied with the results, this course can also help you to improve.

What cameras do you recommend for this course?

Let’s be honest. Gear matters to a certain degree. I generally recommend any camera that has some sort of inbuilt image stabilization. That can be digital-stabilization as it is on the Canon M6 mark ii or EOS R but even better is sensor-stabilization as cameras like the Panasonic GH5, Fujifilm X-T4 or X-S10 have it.

The camera should also allow you to use manual exposure settings.

Cameras that I can recommend:


ZV-1, RX100 v, RX100 vi, RX100 vii
a6500 & a6600, ZV-E10
a7c, a7 iii, a7s ii, a7s iii, a7r ii, a7r iii, a7r iv, a9, a9 ii, a1


X-S10, X-T4, X-H1


G7x ii
M50, M6 mark ii
EOS RP, R, R6, R5, R3


G85, G95
GH5, G9
S5, S1, S1H


OM-D E-M1 ii, OM-D E-M1 iii
OM-D E-M5 ii, OM-D E-M5 iii


Z6, Z6 ii
Z7, Z7 ii

Which video editor do you use?

I use Final Cut Pro and so my editing and color grading courses are done in Final Cut Pro.

You can download a free 90day trial of Final Cut Pro here:

However, the tools, and techniques that I use also work with DaVinci Resolve and Adobe Premiere. You just find the tools in different places.

I recommend Final Cut tough as it’s by far the best performing editor and offers the fastest workflow for video creators. Time is money 😉

How is the payment handled?

The payment is handled by Teachable. You will be redirected to their website where you can pay via credit card and PayPal. After that, you will get an email with access to the course. It’s a one-time payment, no future fees.

What Members say

Slide 1

I was heading away on a trip and wanted to do more video instead of photo and so like alot of people I jumped onto YouTube for some pointers. As is typical with YT you are inundated with creators of different levels and after going through some who were just “plugging” their page all the time, did not sound confident, who did not produce good results or who were just bad educators I lucked out and found Pascal.

After absorbing hours of his quality content I wanted to learn even more and so signed up to his “Learn With Pascal (Full Access)” course and I learnt so much.
The content was delivered in the same way as his YT video’s but with more details and I have learned ALOT.

Definitely worth every dollar and if you really want to get the most out of your gear and make great content you have to learn from Pascal.

P.S I love the accent and the accidental swearing, it really makes the lessons more enjoyable.

Slide 1

“I viewed several of Pascal’s YouTube videos and became instantly engaged in his content. I then registered in one of the courses on his learning platform and again became so informed that I had to enroll in his entire “Learn with Pascal”package. This is a must-have platform of training to have access to–stop missing out!!!”

Leonard O. (Full LWP Member)

Slide 1

“This is a very helpful course. Especially the modules for shooting transitions and video editing were very helpful to me. I didn’t realize before, that it can make sense to do panning in every clip you shoot because maybe you can use it later for transitions. It was also very helpful for me how to put clips together, that they fit perfectly together. Even small things with maybe the steps from a person who is walking. Also, the video on how to do speed ramping was very well explained! I had a lot of problems with speed ramping before. But now, I think I understand it better and I am able to use it in my next video.”

Slide 1

“My wife and I are dedicated to improving our skills and Pascal’s courses have filled some critical gaps in our training. His modules dig deep where necessary, but the content is fun and interesting, in addition to being super easy to follow. Where other courses just scratch the surface across a broad range of modules, Pascal has effectively separated each discipline into affordable individual collections that truly make you a better creator. The content is worth 25x the cost. Can’t wait to continue working our way through his library!”

Phil L. (Full LWP Member)

Slide 1

“Learn with Pascal really helped take my videography game to the next level.
There are
a ton of techniques that I learned from the course that only come with years of experience which Pascal has accumulated and shared with us here. The course is easy to follow and full of tips and tricks that do help in real-life situations

“I would recommend this course to anyone that’s looking to improve their videography skills or even someone who’s a total beginner and wish to learn.”

“If you’ve learned something or got inspiration from my YouTube tutorials, I’m sure that my courses will greatly benefit you.

I know from experience that it feels hard to invest in educational products instead of new camera gear. But one big reason of my success is that I constantly try to learn something new.

So by signing up for this course, you invest in something much more important than camera gear, which is YOU!”
