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!

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 Method to a Successful (and Fulfilling) Photography Career
Introspective and Knowledgable

This was my first workshop I have done and I have to say I'm very satisfied. Alex is able to connect his own life experience to the aspiring adventurist/photographer. Highly recommend!

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.

Content AND Satisfied!

Of all the workshops seen on Wildist, this is definitely the one that is most revolutionizing my work career. I will be traveling to Portugal shortly to shoot my first short film and I can't wait to put everything I've learned into practice! Thanks RJ, thanks to the whole Wildist family!

The Cinematic Filmmaking Workshop
Insightful and personal experience

This workshop was the stepping stone for transitioning from photo to video work. I really like how it feels like a personal 1 on 1 lesson. I think the value for me comes from seeing, first hand every single step of the process. Especially things like pre-pro, file organization, colour grading. It's cool to be told things but when you are talking through the process and see every element involved, that's what made this workshop worthwhile. Awesome work guys, have taken heaps of inspiration from RJ's films for some of my personal projects. Cheers!

How to Become a Freelance Photographer
E-mails was the desensitizing way of communicating until Isaac told us what to write

For the first time I was able to write a straight to the point email to a brand and not feel weird right after. Having the opportunity of seeing the actual email or DM messaged that Isaac shows it to us in the course, has made the whole difference. Seeing the way he speaks to a brand and what to do in steps after it is about the most useful skill that you will gain after this course. It feels like you are seeing next to him and having a 1-1 conversation with honesty and realness.

Shooting for Brands
Gold Nuggets of Wisdom!

Andrew provides a ton of really great tips for diving into working with brands. I used a handful of his tips and now I work with a handful of brands both in freelance and full time. If you're looking to get into working with brands or more brands, I highly recommend this workshop.

The Photographic Style & Aesthetic Workshop
Well made workshop with good examples

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.

Lot's to learn

Just finished the workshop and I really enjoyed it. I recently started my photography career and ran into a lot of the same problems Isaac is talking about. Especially how to talk to brands and how to come up with ideas was really helpful.

Simply Awesome.

This is probably the best workshop I have ever taken with Wildist. This workshop is packed with a huge amount of information and I learnt so much right from the start. I know I'll be coming back to this workshop again and again as I shoot my first high altitude documentary this summer.
