Meet Taylor

What To Expect

When creating this workshop, Taylor honed in on everything that he wished he knew when he was first starting out. In this episode he walks you through his intentions with the workshop, and everything that he hopes to relay to you to help make your journey in landscape photography as enjoyable as possible.

Pre-Production

One of the questions that Taylor gets asked most often is how does he find the incredible places he captures. Over the years he has developed a system to seek out, search, and find these remarkable off-the-beaten-path areas, which he relays to you here using the upcoming workshop field shoot to Mt Cheam as the real time example. As a bonus, Taylor talks about the importance of being prepared with the right gear, and shows you the app, Packup, he co-developed to ensure a smooth trip in the wild.

Gear

Taylor walks you through all of his gear, from his camera, lenses, and accessories, all the way through to his Toyota Forerunner which was built out to aid his adventures in the backcountry. Continuing from the pre-production episode, Taylor uses the upcoming trip to Mt Cheam as the example to show you specifically what he packs for the trip in question, and even how he packs his bag for extra tips to keep in mind for your next adventure.

In the Field: Light & Settings

Embarking on the hike to Mt Cheam, Taylor starts laying the groundwork for your photography skills in the workshop. Beginning with aperture, Taylor shows you how adjusting it can change your depth of field, evoking a much different feeling to the image. He then walks through shooting in RAW over JPEG, white balance settings, bracketing, and the advantages of the major camera modes and when to use each. As an added bonus, Taylor’s camera monitor is recorded so that you can see every capture in real time as he makes adjustments to get the shot.

Compositions In The Field

As the hike continues towards the summit of Mt. Cheam, Taylor walks you through his process while out in the field, what he is looking for, and how he hopes to capture it. Once arriving at the summit the first composition that Taylor walks through is how to utilize scale, and how a subject can help bring a sense of place to the image. Working against the fading alpine light, he then switches gears to capture more detailed shots of the environment, as well as showing you the basics of stitched photos and panoramas to assemble while editing.

Ep

7

Human Elements In The Field

As blue hour sets in, Taylor directs his friend Joel in order to capture a moody alpine scene, using the human element to help bring the viewer into the image. Taylor demonstrates how shooting the same photo as solely a landscape image might lack interest, before giving some key takeaways from the time spent on Mt Cheam.

16:31

Ep

8

Astrophotography

One of the most mystified subjects in landscape photography, Taylor sets out to simplify astrophotography so that you can set out and capture incredible images. Beginning with the gear he uses, he discusses each piece of his kit and why the focal lengths and aperture of each lens matters. Once on location, Taylor shows you what settings to use, and how to adjust for tac sharp images, before teaching light painting to add even more interest to your scene. As an added bonus, an astrophotography checklist is included for download to take with you in the field with you.

25:12

Ep

Scouting In The Field

Taylor takes you to a waterfall location that he has never been before, in order to demonstrate his process of scouting a location, all the while vocalizing the compositions come to mind, and what he is and isn’t looking for. Once at the waterfall, Taylor is constantly vocalizing his thoughts to help you comprehend his workflow, beginning with how he uses a long exposure to create a stunning image. Neutral density filters are also introduced to allow for an even longer shutter speed.

12:24

Ep

10

Using Filters In The Field

In this episode dedicated to filters, Taylor discusses each type, what they are used for, and how to actually use them in a practical setting in the field. Beginning with a circular polarizer, Taylor shows how to use them to reduce glare and increase contrast, before moving on to an in-depth overview of graduated and solid neutral density filters to properly expose a scene. Side by side comparisons of the images shown with and without the filters to further emphasize their function.

Post Processing Our Photos

Back in the studio, Taylor walks you through his entire process for editing including how he backs up his photos, making selects, and exporting the photos. The bulk of the episode is a detailed look at how Taylor edits several photos he captured from Mt Cheam, with a thorough explanation of his workflow in Lightroom and each adjustment that he makes. He also walks you through compiling the bracketed HDR images, panoramas, and stitch that he captured in the field episodes.

Reflections on Past Photography

Using a trip to Patagonia as the focal point, Taylor walks you through how he used the experience to capture unique and memorable images of the area which in turn has garnered him work and recognition within the industry.

Q&A's with Taylor

Before shooting the workshop Taylor put out a poll on Instagram asking his followers what they want to know, and has selected 12 of the most asked questions to answer in detail.

Photo Critique

Taylor reviews several of his favorite images, giving the backstory of each to bring you into the environment with him while discussing what makes the composition unique and how he achieved each. One of the common threads throughout each of the stories is that Taylor doesn’t always expect to get a great photo, but by keeping a keen eye and being ready for when the moment arrives is key to capturing a great photograph at a moments notice.

Excellent and Engaging
Brad Jamison
Getting a look into Dan's workflow and how he approaches different types of shots (and, of course, how he edits those shots) has helped me better understand what I'm seeing onscreen, as well as thinking ahead on how to edit those images. I applied his editing techniques to some landscape photos on my phone and was happier with those edits than many I'd done in Lightroom and taken with my camera. I highly recommend this course for both the information and Dan's engaging and relaxed teaching style.
Terrific Workshop!!
Amanda
Thank you Taylor and the team for creating an informative course that educates a solid foundation towards Landscape Photography. I found Taylor's straight forward explanations useful for the camera settings, and learnt a great deal about astro photography. Something I'm eager to begin experiencing and with Taylor's camera settings it will put me on the right track to experiment with more confidence and less frustration. The local camera shop will benefit financially after my visit after learning a few more tools to purchase which I haven't bought yet! Ha!! Can't wait to begin to play with them! Thanks again Taylor, very enjoyable and informative.

As an owner of a small creative studio that publishes an annual in-house magazine, I've begun to work more and more with photographers on a professional level. I purchased this workshop to get a better understanding of the world of photography from the view of a photographer. I really enjoyed learning Taylors approach and gave me some really good insights to the world of landscape photography.

Taylor Shows You Step by Step How to Take Your Landscape Photography to the Next Level!

To put it simply, amazing! Taylor makes this workshop beneficial for everyone, beginners to pro photographers. He walks you through everything from location scouting, what gear he uses and recommends, how to work with friends/models, ways to keep editing simple, and my favorite part, the business/philosophy side behind being a photographer. This is my second Wildist course and would recommend this to everyone who is looking to take their photography skills to the next level.

Down to earth advice

Despite some minor annoyances (Taylor seems to repeat himself a lot), it was a very good workshop. He is very down to earth and gives lots of tips and advice that reflects that. Taylor doesn't try to pretend that being a photographer is easy and addresses it head on throughout the course. He has a section that covers creative blocks and personal growth, that I think was very good. Overall, very happy to have taken it.

Great course for the aspiring landscape photographer

This course was great--Taylor's approach and delivery of the topics is straightforward and extremely helpful. I am somewhat comfortable with my camera/settings and know some of the basic rules of photography, but his explanations help translate in how to use those tools to create YOUR own images no matter what you are trying to achieve. Cant recommend this course enough to any aspiring landscape photographer.

Awesome landscape photography workshop!

Taylor's laid back approach to landscape photography is very easy to follow and learn from. When you're just finding your way with photography, it's great to learn in it's raw format, on a hike, climbing a mountain. Taylor explains the how's and the why's as he's composing images, which is awesome. The in-camera shots that show the set up, framing and settings on his camera are very helpful, especially for beginner landscapers.. Great workshop Taylor!
