I found it to be one of those courses in which you get directly to the point, very practical, with many different examples. But above all very empowering, the way Benjamin shares his experiences and what moves him to continue doing his work is totally inspiring, it is contagious and makes you get even more hooked on this. The only thing I´d say I´ve missed is to see how he goes through the video edition process too. Great content value!

It’s nice to see the whole process from shoot to finished edit. Wish some parts were shown even more throughly, like making the stitched images for example. All in all a nice workshop in a nice environment. Worth the time and money spent.

Loved this workshop! I really liked the way the modules are split up, and the way you watch Benjamin go out on location for a shot, then immediately sit down and watch his editing process for that specific shot. So much editing to learn too, since he doesn't use presets! The workbook is also super thorough, so printing it out allowed me to pay close attention and just add little notes here and there. The Iceland road guide is also SO helpful and in depth. Can't wait to use it. Also loved that Ben talked about printing your own work. Would be cool to maybe see something from Wildist in the future that goes even more into depth on that (calibrating your own printer, working with a print shop, dropship sites, etc.) Awesome course. Thanks, Hardman.

Both Benjamin and Alex have played huge roles in my photographic style development over the years and it is great to hear first hand exactly what inspires and drives Ben to keep pushing his creative boundaries. Personally, I love his minimalist approach and it was super insightful to watch him explain how he developed that style and how he actively produces photographs in a cohesive manner. 10/10 recommend this workshop to anyone looking for a very unique and profound perspective with the intent of expanding your creative horizons.

Genuinely enjoyed this workshop. The landscape of Iceland (especially when frozen) is such a unique and different one than I've had the experience in shooting in before. So although this workshop took place in a location that is drastically different than the one I'm currently able to capture, the content itself was massively helpful and encouraging in the progression of my career. Would recommend to anyone looking to further their expertise- both beginner and non.

A deep dive into Ben's entire photographic process, which makes me shooting and editing with passion again. As many could wrongly think, the main topic of this workshop is not how to take bangers while in Iceland, but the passion and curation that Ben puts in his never ending creative process. Those elements are invaluable, independently by the kind of photography you pursue or the location you're in, and in the workshops you can concretely feel them while watching and learning concrete shooting/editing techniques. This workshop represent a solid milestone in my photographic journey, and I couldn't recommend it enough. Thanks Alex and Takk Fyryr Ben!

Benjamin is a fantastic teacher and the workshop is amazing. I am a newbie photographer but I am enjoying it a lot. It is full of useful suggestions, concepts and materials. Also listening to Benjamin personal story is super inspiring! Fantastic! PS I was not able to view the workshop through the app but only via website. Not sure if it is my fault.
