The Wildlife Photography Workshop
Great mindset

Loved this workshop ! Charly has such an interesting and unique mindset about wildlife photography ! I love the way she sees her photography and describes herself as an artist more than a photographer. I also loved to see her editing process. I've always enjoyed the colors she choose and seeing how she get there with Lightroom is great !

The Landscape Photography Workshop
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.

The Landscape Photography Workshop
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.

Mindblowing

What can I say. Alex opened my eyes to a brand new world of becoming a professional photographer. A lot of input that I will use 100%. Thank you so much for sharing your expertise with me and the other students. You're a big inspiration for me!

The Landscape Photography Workshop
Making sense of all things film

Everything made so much sense. RJ is incredibly intentional in everything he does. It's unreal to have access to his full process in this class. As a filmmaker myself, it can be overwhelming at times, keeping it all in your mind. Seeing another creative like RJ, working thru the similar systems and workflows of his own is super insightful and reaffirming. I'd recommend this class as much for beginners as for experts. RJ is a great teacher and filmmaker. Super easy to listen to for hours straight. I loved this workshop. It was clean, well produced and easy to follow along. I can't believe how smooth he was on set too, turning to the BTS camera and teaching in real time. Mad respect.

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.

The Ultimate Photo Storytelling Workshop
Felt like hearing advice from an old friend

Finn was remarkable, and his easygoing manner cuts straight to the heart of what he is trying to say. He is sincere and the passion he has for his work shines through - it is clear that he is sharing his method in a way that will assist other aspiring photographers (myself included) to remain true to oneself and slow down a little to focus on the details. This workshop is thought provoking and delightful! Many thanks to Finn, Alex, and the Wildist team for binging it all together.

The Photographic Style & Aesthetic Workshop
Review

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!

Adventure Photography Pro
Disappointed

Honestly, for $300 I was expecting to learn a fair amount. Production quality is good and gets you excited about taking the course, but then there is little content to back it up. On location shoots is mostly just Alex taking pictures and a few generic tips (very few). Editing section is really bad - we're just watching Alex mumble and make changes without any explanation or tips of what/why/how to do things. I've taken much better courses for $10 on Udemy.

The Landscape Photography Workshop
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!

The Business of Photography
Insightful and Motivating

It was truly great to hear some real life experiences from someone you look up to. I feel like I have an understanding of the industry I previously thought I knew but now know was way off. if you are looking to take your photographic journey seriously this is a fantastic look into the world of the working, traveling, successful creative.

The Van Life Workshop: Getting Started
Incredible!

This course was so valuable for my wife and I! We are moving into a van within the next year so making sure to stack as much knowledge as possible. It’s so amazing to learn from a true legend in the van life world. Each lesson is easily digestible, and truly valuable.

Creating the Moment
Thanks Forrest and wildist!

The 500 $ Challenges are a great reminder that you can work on creating a stunning collection of images without going buying into all the new lenses, drones, cameras etc. Furthermore, Forrest is just a very sweet and calming person that shares a lot of his personal insights in this course.

The Cinematic Filmmaking Workshop
Very Intentional Workshop

RJ's workshop gave me the confidence and practical knowledge I needed to pursue short film production. Without this workshop I'm not sure I would have ever taken the leap of faith to shoot my first official short film! I love RJ's approach to film making. His intentionality and holistic filming style is inspiring and encouraging. Thanks to everyone that put this workshop together! Looking forward to the next one

The Business of Photography
An experience

This was absolutely amazing. I have followed Chris for more than 10 years, he has been an inspiration to me in many ways; his way of seeing the world and the devotion behind his passion for storytelling has always called my eye. After watching and studying with this course I realized it all comes down to following whats true to you and doing it with all the love in the world. Thank you Chris for being an open book about your business and sharing with us all the stories in between, the anecdotes, the whys and the hows behind your experience as a photographer. This was an adventure for me and I am grateful for all that you shared. Now I am ready to take my business of photography to the next level.

The Cinematic Filmmaking Workshop
A comprehensive documentary filmmaking course

I was very impressed by the quality of this course. RJ is not only a very talented filmmaker, but he is also an incredible teacher. A large part of YouTube focuses on gear and technical aspects of video like color grading. So, it was a breath of fresh air to receive professional direction on pre-production, directing, and storytelling while also de-mystifying the technical aspects of filmmaking.
