Looking to grow a meaningful photography business? Whether you are a curious hobbyist or skilled entrepreneur, this course provides actionable steps to breathe life into your photography business.
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.

I'm a 25 year old photographer and filmmaker and have been in the industry for a couple years running my own media business. There are times every single week when I realize I don't have a clue what the hell I'm doing. Fake it till you make it! But just listening to Chris's experiences and advice as someone who has been in the industry much longer than I have is seriously invaluable information! This was a great investment in myself and if you're hesitant on dropping the cash for this workshop, don't be!

Although I'm a huge fan of Chris Burkard's work, I must say this workshop was unfortunately very disappointing - especially given the premium price that is charged. While each episode is quite long, it seems to fall into the trap of saying a lot while saying very little of substance. It's great to hear his story, but also feels as though the picture he offers is a very general "top-level view" through friendly conversation, as opposed to offering more concrete action steps by deflecting specific guidance with words like "you need to figure out what's right for you." I bought it because I don't even really have a good benchmark for "what's right for me." Unfortunately, whenever opportunities rise for Chris to offer a baseline for what we can start looking for, those moments fall through. This course absolutely does offer value - it's not a 1-star workshop by any means. However, if you're trying to decide where to invest $300, spend it on Finn Beales' Storytelling workshop, Alex's Adventure Photography Pro workshop, or Andrew Kearns' workshop on brands. There are MUCH better places to start or continue your investments though Wildist's courses.
