Skeptical... but wow!
David Johnston
I’ll admit, I was a little skeptical about this course. I knew Chris Burkard’s story, and I have been a professional photographer for a couple of years making a good stream of income. How much more could I really learn? Apparently a lot. After watching the entire course I had so many new ideas about how to improve my photography business, when I expand, and even thoughts on getting representation. This course is beneficial if you’re brand new to photography and want to start a business, or if you need some new business ideas after you feel like things are a little stale. 5 stars all the way.
How to tell a story with images
I’ve bought some workshop here, but just let me say that this is the best for me. I was searching for something that fit my way to live the photography, a way to emphasize my skill without the necessity to travel the world to say something. Finn opened my mind with simple topics, a proper way to see photography. I’ve learned how to tell a story, now it’s up to me to build my own story. Thank you a lot Finn and Alex for this possibility!
Highly educational
Oswaldo Martinez
I would 100% recommend this guide to fellow creators and even non-creators. There's a great deal of relevant, accurate information, especially with everything going on in the world at the moment. And there's many great takeaways that we can all apply to keep learning and being better in what we do and in our lives.
Real inspiration
Stian Servoss
Alex is so good at sharing from his own experiences and I thank him for that. I’ve seen both his workshops and found them both really inspiring. I can recommend them both to anyone who likes taking photos. All the best, Stian Servoss
A True Source of Inspiration
Alex does a fantastic job of making you want to discover yourself and what you can do through photography! Exploring the world around me in great depth is something Alex inspired me to do, and if you're up to the challenge, he can teach you how to do that as well! You'll learn to capture the little things in a unique and memorable way!!
Fall in Love with Your Vision
Mark Logan
Alex is just as inspiring with his workshop as he is with his photographs. He emphasizes a creative approach supported by a second-nature understanding of the tech. I myself don't even own a camera, but I've been borrowing a 5D Mark ii w/ a third party lens. Alex makes me feel like a photographer regardless of the gear I have. I've also never touched Lightroom or Photoshop before and his editing sessions gave me a quick rundown so I could get started. I'm now preparing to launch a separate photography page as I ramp up my California photo trips as practice for travel abroad. With Alex's workshop and his continual inspiration through example, I am rapidly strengthening my photography and exploring more than ever before. Cheers to Alex and his team. I sincerely recommend.
Inspiring & Informative
This workshop has given me some new direction in my approach to taking photos. Alex has valuable tips for both the shooting and editing processes. He’s made it easy to understand while inspiring you to do your own thing.
Outstanding workshop
John Clarke
Alex's workshops have absolutely been worth the cost. While its possible to gain a lot of free information on photography skills through the internet and YouTube, Alex's invaluable tips go several steps further. You will not regret buying the workshop.
The art of storytelling with photos...
Jeremy Selg
Alex's sophomore workshop doesn't disappoint. He openly shares his thought process, his vision and his creative workflow in a way that is warm and welcoming. His section on gear is straight forward and he does a great job explaining "why" he choses each piece of equipment. His style and the way he delivers his workshop is just so easy to listen to and it really feels like your just having a in depth conversation with a friend, who happens to be a master of his chosen craft, photography. My favorite section is actually the bonus material "Planning and researching the perfect trip," where he shares travel hacks and his process of researching a trip. I learned a few really great tools and can't wait for his next workshop. Thanks Alex!
