Inspiring & highly useful
Oswaldo Martinez
Alex is always fantastic at inspiring others in photography, but with this workshop, he takes it a step further with a more 'hands-on' approach teaching you tips, techniques, and valuable input so you can think about it and apply it yourself. You'll learn so much! Definitely recommend it!
Hands on workshop for capturing your own Summer experience
JR van Alphen
It is interesting to learn from two different examples to build a story around two Summer experiences. From preparing, the actual shoot, and editing. Alex is open on his approach, thoughts and decisions throughout the whole process. It is above all practical and not less important entertaining. I enjoyed every minute. I am already anticipating my 'post Corona' Summer shoot.
A useful tool for both photographic mindset and skills!
Filippo Dierico
First online workshop, way more inspiring than I was expecting when I purchased it. For me this has not been a classic series of lectures, but an introspective process of improvement, which I am now applying to my photography. This for sure won't be my last workshop here on Wildist! Thanks Alex!!
