Great workshop

This is my first workshop I have bought from Wildist and makes me want to buy more in the future. Tons of information to help photographers. I recently bought the Andrew Kearns workshops and look forward to jumping into that one. Thank you for making these and sharing your knowledge with the photography community!

Shooting for Brands
Motivational and Valuable

Andrew's minimalistic approach in photography was refreshing to hear. One can be efficient and a master to their craft without needing x amount of gear. The workshop offers everything you need to be inspired and gives you the confidence to work in the field. Whether you are a beginner or professional in the field, what this workshop does not fail to demonstrate is VALUE. 100% you will take something away from this workshop. Thank you, Mr. Teakman

The Photographic Style & Aesthetic Workshop
Totally worth it!

I was debating with myself, if I should do the course or not - I do not regret enrolling, totally stoked in fact. Benjamin is a great teacher and very thorough, the course is diverse , touches on many different subjects and you can take it at your own pace. I am only halfway through and learned tons already. There is much food for thought, the community forum is great and on top of it all you get assignments which Ben and Alex then critique. Totally worth it!

The best workshop I've ever seen!

The Adventure Photography Pro was exactly what I needed! It helped me a lot with all the aspects of running a photography business. But more importantly, this workshop help you to find your way in the photography world. The goal being is not to copy the style of Alex, the goal is to find what's define you as a person and transfer it to your photographic style. In this workshop, Alex give you all the keys you need to find your path and become a better photographer! This is without a doubt the best workshop I've ever seen. Thanks to it, I've got my first clients recently! If you want to improve your work and became a professional photographer, this workshop is the best you can find!

Shooting for Brands
Just in Time

This was my first workshop ever and I watched it hoping to invest in who I am as a photographer. I’ve loved photography for so long and I’ve gained a couple clients throughout the past years that have reached out to me, but I’ve never been sure how to reach out to the brands and clients I want to work with. This workshop was the confidence boost I needed to put me on the right path. Being able to get an inside look on how to pitch to clients, from somebody I would consider a professional photographer, really opened up my eyes to something I had never seen before. I loved the workshop and I couldn’t stop watching. Not only that, but the PDF really allowed me break it down and have a wider overview overall. This workshop showed up just in time as I’m ready to move forward into taking photography more seriously. I’m certain this workshop will follow me throughout my future and I know I can always come back to reflect on the knowledge and experience that was shared here.

The Wildlife Photography Workshop
A refreshing take on wildflife photography!

Charly’s pragmatic approach to gear combined with an emphasis on developing an individual style and the field experience to know how to photograph wildlife safely and responsibly makes this a great resource for beginners and experts alike. I really enjoyed the emphasis on the ethics of wildlife photography. I feel like it’s an incredibly important topic. As folks pursue wildlife photography as a hobby or job, hopefully in part to raise awareness about how important it is to protect it, we need to make sure we’re encouraging practices that don’t negatively impact these animals, especially since they cannot advocate for themselves in the same way human subjects can.

The Photographic Style & Aesthetic Workshop
Ben makes me shoot with passion again

A deep dive into Ben's entire photographic process, which makes me shooting and editing with passion again. As many could wrongly think, the main topic of this workshop is not how to take bangers while in Iceland, but the passion and curation that Ben puts in his never ending creative process. Those elements are invaluable, independently by the kind of photography you pursue or the location you're in, and in the workshops you can concretely feel them while watching and learning concrete shooting/editing techniques. This workshop represent a solid milestone in my photographic journey, and I couldn't recommend it enough. Thanks Alex and Takk Fyryr Ben!

The Photographic Style & Aesthetic Workshop
Outstanding

I’m not one to usually spend money on workshops but the work Alex puts in is always flawless, so this was a first time for me and it was undeniably worth it. Ben is an excellent teacher, he is very easy to listen to and it’s a great insight into his creative workflow. I just happened to be traveling around Iceland when this workshop came out and It inspired me immensely. Thanks to Ben & Alex for all their hard work, this workshop is brilliant.

The Business of Photography
From the Heart

Wow!! Thank you so much for this valuable insight explained from truth and transparency. I appreciated every bit of information and storytelling aspects of this workshop. Very unique and lively! This workshop has left a positive imprint on me, while also forcing me to think critically on the business aspect of my own photography/filmmaking projects. I am so glad I took notes and I will continue referring back to them as I continue to grow and face inevitable challenges into the future.

Everything I needed and more

I was really concerned about investing the money. I've invested in a lot of workshops that only gave me information I could have just googled. Alex is incredibly talented - not only as an artist, but as a teacher. He and his team answered a lot of questions I didn't even know I had. That includes a lot of the backend work as a photographer. If you're looking to grow as a creative, you won't find a better resource than this.

Adventure Photography Pro
EXCELLENT

The best purchase I’ve made as an aspiring outdoor and adventure photographer! Alex covers everything on how to shoot, how the photography business works, how to edit and approach a commercial shoot, and how to backup your work. And he does it on very easy way for the student to understand. Thank you, Alex, for sharing your knowledge

Mastering Lightroom & Photoshop Fundamentals
Incredibly Eye Opening

This workshop truly opened up a whole new world of editing techniques that I didn't fully realize existed. I'd recommend this workshop for anyone who has a basic understanding of LR and PS already and are hoping to take it to new levels. I will keep coming back to it for a long time!

The Photographic Style & Aesthetic Workshop
Better than any real life class

As a young photographer, it’s hard to be taken seriously sometimes. With this online workshop, it doesn’t matter who you are or your skill level. They just want us to be able to learn. This workshop has taught me so much not only about how to better use my camera, but how to prepare for shoots, and how to dedicate time to editing a photo in lightroom instead of changing a couple settings and calling it good. I actually liked it so much that I went on Benjamin’s Iceland expedition workshop in June 2019. These artists have a real dedication for their art and this workshop teaches us how to as well. Highly recommend! -Danielle @dxniellephoto

Creating the Moment
Thought provoking & practical

Creating the Moment brought some interesting concepts to my awareness. I enjoyed Forrest’s approach to working with and directing models and think the same principles should carry over into how our actions in life affect those around us. Forrest has a unique editing style that opened my eyes to a completely different process that I’ve enjoyed applying to my editing. I also appreciated his knowledge on conceptualizing images and planning ahead. Regardless of your level of experience, I think there is plenty to learn and I would definitely recommend this workshop.

The Wildlife Photography Workshop
Breaks the mold

Often during online photography workshops, there is too much of a focus on technical proficiency instead of creating art based on personal style. Charly breaks that mold and does a fantastic job at sharing insights into finding your own style and editing images to match. It’s clear she is passionate about conservation and she really comes alive during the Shooting in The Field episodes. The post processing section alone is worth the cost of the workshop as there is something for every photography regardless of skill level.

The Photographic Style & Aesthetic Workshop
Covers it all up, great workshop!

At first I hesitated a bit with buying the workshop... Wasn‘t sure if it‘s going to give me what I expected. Nevertheless I was very interested, not only because I am traveling to Iceland in September but also because Ben is an extraordinary photographer with a unique style. And I didn‘t get disappointed! There is so much information shared that it‘s not enough to watch it once. Ben is a great teacher and especially when editing he can explain very well - which is not an easy thing to do as most people "just do it“ but cannot document it properly. The workshop includes topics as gear, trip planning, composition aspects, how to stand out from the mass, editing and a lot more in a very cool manner! I look forward to further workshops which help me finding my own style with the best possible skills. So, thanks to Ben and Alex for this amazing workshop! Cheers from Switzerland, Luca

Practical Information!

First off, Alex is so easy to listen to. You can feel his genuineness through his teachings. His willingness to share knowledge he's garnered over years of succeeding and failing is worth the price of admission. In a closely guarded community, it is difficult to get other photographers to open up about their process. Alex lays it all out there for the taking. I also appreciate him sharing the settings for each shoot/scenario. It gives the viewer an opportunity to see options and how he achieves the look of his images. He also covers all bases: aspects of the business of photography - practical information that is vital to teaching a creative how to be better at making a living selling their art. All in all, I highly recommend this series. Thanks, Alex!

How to Become a Freelance Photographer
A practical yet valuable workshop

"How to Become a Freelance Photographer" was my first photography workshop. There were key takeaways throughout the entire course. Isaac did a great job of expanding on simple concepts that easily get overlooked. He created tangible tips and tricks for his audience to expand upon. THANK YOU for sharing your priceless insight into the world of freelancing. I can't wait to test out your "Pitch Deck Kit" with my future clients!
