I want to break away from that & share what I’m about. I live in Washington, it’s probably raining as you read this, but if it’s not you can find me out in nature. If you don’t find me there, my b - I’m probably reading - I love reading (& writing).

Wonderful
Jacek Patora
Andrew's workshop is wonderfully done. Highly recommended for everyone wanting to start working with brands as a photographer. This workshop helped me create a strategy on how to reach out to brands and what to focus on.
Highly Recommend
Jeani Brechbill
This is a great workshop that shows you beginning to end how to execute a shoot for a brand. I loved the examples of pitches to clients especially the portfolio PDFs he shares. It's great to receive so much valuable information from a super talented and down to earth photographer. Right now, especially, is the perfect time to educate yourself and be even more prepared for your next shoot!
Great value!
Dale Boettcher
I pre-ordered Andrew’s workshop and it was fantastic. His break down on how he likes to pitch to clients was exactly the kind of guidance that I was looking for.
Just in Time
Marcos Rivas
This was my first workshop ever and I watched it hoping to invest in who I am as a photographer. I’ve loved photography for so long and I’ve gained a couple clients throughout the past years that have reached out to me, but I’ve never been sure how to reach out to the brands and clients I want to work with. This workshop was the confidence boost I needed to put me on the right path. Being able to get an inside look on how to pitch to clients, from somebody I would consider a professional photographer, really opened up my eyes to something I had never seen before. I loved the workshop and I couldn’t stop watching. Not only that, but the PDF really allowed me break it down and have a wider overview overall. This workshop showed up just in time as I’m ready to move forward into taking photography more seriously. I’m certain this workshop will follow me throughout my future and I know I can always come back to reflect on the knowledge and experience that was shared here.
Great inspiration
Andzelika Barzyk
What I loved about the story of Andrew is that he proved that you can become an extraordinary photographer without having university degree in Photography. You can learn a lot by yourself. And become a master. He really inspired me showing that in couple of years time he started to work for the world best known brands. The course is very interesting and I Ioved to learn the precise approach you need to pitch to brands.
A workshop with an important message
Eliot Adams
Although the workshop allowed me to learn countless skills in working with clients, and the best way to pitch brands, I found there was something even more valuable than that. Following Andrews work for quite sometime allowed me to know this workshop wasn’t going to just be some tips and tricks, but also something that teaches you important lessons that make the freelance world a little more bearable. Alongside the fascinating walkthrough of his workflow, I found that by the end of it I was questioning what my values and sources of inspiration were, and what they should be. I learnt a lot about the importance of who you are and what your about, which i discovered throughout the workshop and Andrew’s other work is potentially the key to making your best work, as well as making photo work sustainable whilst keeping true to yourself. Invaluable lessons and great value, thanks to the Wildist team for pulling this one out the bag.
The Keystone to the Next Step
Tim Hollister
A very relatable take on the realities of pitching and working with brands from one of the best. Andrew Kearns provides a raw and real guide on to how to best approach and work for those companies that matter to you. The program is separated into lessons or steps which makes it easy to revisit or go over something again at a time when you’re working on that particular thing in your own work. The Strohl Works style workshops are something we as freelance workers have been needing for a long time and here it is!
