Excellent insights!
Alexander Cifuentes
This starter kit really gives you a great idea of what you can expect from Wildist workshops. Clear, practical, real world scenarios that provide real insight on what to do and how to do it. If you feel lost, or if you feel you need orientation or just want to try out a different type of photography or have a passion you haven't followed many of this Workshops can help you and orientate on the right path. And, if you find yourself in a position where you believe this may be what you want to do for a living, there are Workshops that teach you all the skills you need to make this a full time job. From how to approach new clients, to how to manage your workflow and how to deliver the final assets.
Awesome intro to the format

Great set of videos from some great instructors to let you know what you're getting yourself in for! Only 4* as some of them didn't quite appeal to my needs/desires so far
Great Overview!
