I mean, yeah - you should for sure take this workshop

Genuinely enjoyed this workshop. The landscape of Iceland (especially when frozen) is such a unique and different one than I've had the experience in shooting in before. So although this workshop took place in a location that is drastically different than the one I'm currently able to capture, the content itself was massively helpful and encouraging in the progression of my career. Would recommend to anyone looking to further their expertise- both beginner and non.

Very Informative & Awe Inspiring

Both Benjamin and Alex have played huge roles in my photographic style development over the years and it is great to hear first hand exactly what inspires and drives Ben to keep pushing his creative boundaries. Personally, I love his minimalist approach and it was super insightful to watch him explain how he developed that style and how he actively produces photographs in a cohesive manner. 10/10 recommend this workshop to anyone looking for a very unique and profound perspective with the intent of expanding your creative horizons.

A classic one

Would be the basic one that every minimalistic photographer should see, all the informations needed are in, it's full of good time!

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!

My first workshop

Benjamin is a fantastic teacher and the workshop is amazing. I am a newbie photographer but I am enjoying it a lot. It is full of useful suggestions, concepts and materials. Also listening to Benjamin personal story is super inspiring! Fantastic! PS I was not able to view the workshop through the app but only via website. Not sure if it is my fault.

Great source of inspiration!

I absolutely adored this course. Being able to hear the thoughts behind shooting and editing decisions and seeing the incredible level of detail oriented decision making that goes into making a photo. It’s an awesome experience.

Great source of inspiration!

I was surprised by the amount of content that this workshop contains. Starting from the equipment to the final printing of the artwork which Ben covers in the workshop. I found super inspiring the way in which Ben edits and thinks about the concept behind his photos, developing them through his own style. Moreover, the fact that there is a new community forum for the one enrolled makes the workshop even more valuable. Really loved this course, looking forward to the next one!

100% worth the money!

I am massively enjoying this workshop. Watching Ben teaching you how to edit will be the best editing tutorial you will ever see. The whole thing was incredibly constructive and well done. The production quality was 10/10 and the content was 10/10. Highly recommend it and it is definitely worth it. Really good!

Great to begin with

I really enjoyed watching this and I believe when you’re starting out with adventure photography you can take a whole lot away from this course. Ben‘s ideas behind the shots and his editing are interesting to hear and will definitely motivate people to go out and explore the beautiful planet we are allowed to live on.

Such great information and inspiration!

I’m almost done with the course, but I’ve already learned so much useful information. I really admire Ben’s work and it’s such a unique opportunity to learn not only how he edits, but why he makes those choices when capturing and editing the shots. There were also many tools in Lightroom that I wasn’t taking full advantage of, Ben explained it in a way that I’ve never picked up from any other workshop. Thank you for putting together this course!

I was hesitant for the others ones, more than 200$, sure that’s is huge, but that is from Alex, the master photographer ! I haven’t finished the workshop but it is so inspiring for the moment, and much more enriching thanks to the community forum ! That’s already a classic ! See you on the community forum :)

Diverse learning for the beginner and professional

I’ve taken nearly every workshop hosted by Alex and continue to do so, as each one strives to teach something different. Ben’s workshop with Alex has a unique approach in that it dives into every general aspect of photography with a focus in editing. You’ll learn everything from editing for print, digital, how to focus building your business/brand, see Ben’s style of working in the field, rationale of what gear to carry and frankly making due with what you have. They’re all important lessons for both the beginner and professional alike.

Years of work and experience in only one course

It’s amazing how much inspiration you can get from these courses. I’ve bought every single one and with its help I’ve developed and improved my skills as photographer. It’s funny how just a talk with experienced photographers can change your vision and can help you to find your own voice. Thank you Alex for making this possible and thank you Ben for sharing your vision, experience and secrets.

Struggling with the decision

For a while I was struggling with deciding if I should buy this workshop or not, that is if it would be worth the money or not. But afterwards I don‘t regret it at all; I learned so many new things, got a different view/perspective on others and I thought it was really useful to get some insight in other people’s work. The best thing is that now I have it forever, can always look certain things up again and use it as an inspiration for new ideas and a motivation for going out to take photos. Ben really inspires me! Investing in knowledge gives you more out of your photography then gear can ever do.

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!

Really enjoyed this workshop. I have been a full time photographer for 9 years but this still gave me a few good tips that improved my work a lot. The quality of sounds and videography was not the best quality compared to many similar priced workshops but content was 6/5

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.

Unique.

Totally different from any other workshop out there. Real knowledge that you can put in use in just after finishing the workshop. Really inspiring. If you're aiming to be a professional photographer, or if you feel lack of motivation, or just if you're starting photography go for it, you won't regret it. I was hesitating about buying it, but at the end, there's no better investment that invest in knowledge for yourself.

I always admired Benjamin Hardman's work, it is so pure and unique. This workshop was definitely worth it, such an inspirational journey through is career and how he developed his own style. I learned a lot from composition to editing on how to make your work stand out. Totally recommend this. Thank you for all the work you put into this.

Absolutely needed for winter photography

Harsh conditions in the winter for landscape photography is never an easy task. This workshop really gives insight into how to best prepare yourself and continue working amidst bad lighting and difficult terrains. The workshop is also inspirational - it really gives you a look outside your comfort realm! Great stuff here guys and thanks for constantly pushing me to do better.

Like a lot of people i’ve always been rather curious about Ben’s style, the ability to share his process and how much is focused on detail is crazy. It’s encouraged me to look deeper into my images and bring the best out in them. Captured nicely by Alex & the crew. Thanks a lot Ben X Alex

I hesitated to but this workshop but I found it very interesting as an addition to the other workshops. Ben explained how he started to find his style, which is something I'm still struggling with. With excellent tips on starting your own photography business and staying motivated. The Q&A was an amazing idea to add at the end, most of the questions I'd ask Ben myself, were discussed here as well. Great job guys!

Excellent

Loved this workshop, and I use things I learned every time I take photos, work on them in post, or prepare to shoot. While it may seem like spending money on something that isn’t “gear” might not be worth it, I’ve found that the opposite is the case. Even though I’m not quite the perfectionist that Ben is, seeing how he sees what’s missing or distracting to an image and then learning to correct for it either in the shot or in post opened my eyes to how much more potential there is with each shot. It helped me to understand each shot as an opportunity to create and image, and not just to take tons of pictures and hope to got a good one when looking afterwards (all too easy and unfulfilling of a strategy with digital). Also really appreciated the detailed walkthroughs in post-processing and what all the sliders do and how to use them in Lightroom, it’s a powerful tool but can also be overwhelming until you’re used to it, and this workshop definitely helped me figure it out as I develop my own style. Beyond the content, the production of the workshop was superb - great workshop, and highly recommend!!!

First Workshop

The first workshop I have ever purchased. I've always been hesitant to invest in a workshop, however this went above and beyond my expectations. Fluid in progression, great insight and a super relaxed learning curve full of information. I feel this has prepared me to take my own personal photographic journey to the next level. Executed to perfection. Nice work guys! 10/10 recommended.

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

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

Extremely insightful

I was initially hesitant about spending that much money on an online workshop, but before I even got halfway through it was clear that it was absolutely worth every penny. This workshop will give you a fantastic insight into the creative processes of an awesome photographer and will provide you with excellent training and tips in Lightroom. I have had Lightroom for a year now, yet I think i have learnt more in this week I have had this workshop than I have all year! I revisited some edits after one of the episodes and instantly took them to another level! There are no shortcuts in producing this workshop and everything is covered and delivered in a professional and comfortable style. I have no regrets in investing in this workshop and I can wholeheartedly recommend it to any photographer looking to improve and find their style! Thanks for an awesome workshop! Cheers, Ewan

Enhanced the editing of my photos in a big way.

This was a beast of a workshop. I wanted to enhance my editing skills and niche down more of a look to my photos and after taking this workshop I was able to do just that. Hardman takes time with his photos in the edits. I used to rush through mine fast, but now I take my time with them and look at them seeing if I can craft more of a look to them. I use radial filters and brushes a lot more now as well. Also curating a theme to my work and niching down what I want to shoot and eliminating what I don't want I feel has helped in a big way examples of work after the workshop https://www.silverfernproductions.ca/ben-adventures @pete_ohara Highly recommended!
