This was absolutely amazing. I have followed Chris for more than 10 years, he has been an inspiration to me in many ways; his way of seeing the world and the devotion behind his passion for storytelling has always called my eye. After watching and studying with this course I realized it all comes down to following whats true to you and doing it with all the love in the world. Thank you Chris for being an open book about your business and sharing with us all the stories in between, the anecdotes, the whys and the hows behind your experience as a photographer. This was an adventure for me and I am grateful for all that you shared. Now I am ready to take my business of photography to the next level.

Awesome! It made me rethink the stuff I am doing. Pulled the stuff out which is good for my situation and trying to get it included in my everyday business. Where to put energy and where not. Cause I recognized that I wanna do all by myself which doesn't work out at the end. So to speak, don't be good at something u don't wanna do! Killer fact! Thanks a lot Chris and his team to put this very intimate video out. I really appreciate it!! Heaps of love to u! Cheers.

Chris does a great job of blending his personal journey & real work experience & informs you how you can begin your own business. This also helps to picture real expectations and the work it's going to take the get there. He also talks about money, finance, and income - which I'm so thankful for!!! Definitely a class I will watch & rewatch throughout my early career.

I've been following Chris for quite some time now, and was thrilled when I saw this course become available. He shares his journey with a straightforward honesty that makes it easy to relate to. One of the things that draws me to his work is the intimate relationship he develops with the landscapes he is photographing. His passion for his work is practically tangible and it is powerfully motivating. As a single mother who still has a couple years til my children are adults, I focus more on portraits, since it makes for a flexible schedule. There are so many aspects of this course that I have been able to apply to the business of portraiture, as well as working towards what I eventually want to focus on, and that is what I appreciate most about this course. It's applicable all across the board and hits so many details that many other offerings on 'the business of photography' don't touch. I highly recommend this course to anyone who wants to make a business out of photography, no matter what you're shooting. I also recommend this course for anyone who has the desire to turn any passion into a career, as Chris conveys a truly encouraging work ethic and dedication. Many thanks to Wildist for making this available, and to Chris for putting such an effort into creating this course.

I am quite disappointed with this workshop, because for the price it costs I expected a lot more concrete information, resulting instead a friendly chat. I am a big fan of Chris Burkard and I am sorry to leave a bad review but by the end of the workshop I have learned almost nothing and unfortunately I feel like I have wasted my money.
A lot of nostalgia. I understand that this is part of a person's path, but I wanted to hear more practical points. But there were also inspiring parts about a personal project, I really liked it. Mixed feelings from the course, especially working with an agent and hiring employees.
