I appreciate this project so much.
Galina
I appreciate this project so much. It speaks to me in many ways and I really like the AlexStrohl vibes throughout the guide. Starting from picture , the atmosphere, ending with meaningful conversation. Thank you, lots of love!
Motivational and Valuable
Leningrad Sta Maria
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 demostrate is VALUE. 100% you will take something away from this workshop. Thank you, Mr. Teakman IG: Leningradstamaria
Great value!

I pre-ordered Andrew’s workshop and it was fantastic. His break down on how he likes to pitch to clients was exactly the kind of guidance that I was looking for. Instagram: @DaleBoettcher
A WEALTH OF GOOD INFO
Adam Brady
Alex’s Adventure Pro workshop is a in depth overview of all the major focuses any working or hope to be working photographer should be paying attention to. Especially for a competent photographer that may lack a robust network of professional peers to bounce ideas of off or who is looking for advice on where to start on the business side of things. There are many workshops that can get you started with a camera and editing images, but this is the best one I’ve participated in that breaks down the action steps to take those photos and start building towards a business. Plus you get access to Alex’s community of other students to start networking and making those connections you might currently lack. Alex’s conversational style and friendly demeanor make this workshop a joy to watch. It feels like you are sitting down in Alex’s living room and having a conversation with a friend about the business, rather than attending a formal course on the subject. I highly, highly recommend signing up and participating in this course and the community that comes with the price of admission!
SOURCE OF INCREDIBLE AND UNIQUE INFO

I don't usually write reviews but this workshop made me say some stuff about it. From how to shoot to business helped me tremendously. I needed that kind of push to realize what do I really want to shoot. I especially enjoyed the business part even though It's kinda "boring" but I don't agree with that, I think it contains a bunch of information that helps us freelancers a ton and I'm forever grateful! Of course, I already told my friends about the workshop... they were amazed at how much information you got here. It would mean a world to me if you can just check my profile on IG :)
AN AWESOME ONLINE WORKSHOP FOR THOSE LOOKING TO EXPAND INTO THE WORLD OF ADVENTURE PHOTOGRAPHY
Brian Walker
Alex goes above and beyond providing awesome information that most other professionals wouldn't share about the business side of photography. There continues to be updated information added to the workshop and everything is easy to follow along with. Alex and his entire team are incredibly professional and helpful in answering any questions you may have. I have always found the best way to grow is to invest in yourself and this is one of the better investments I have made in myself and in my business.
YOU NEED TO INVEST IN YOURSELF TO GROW AND THIS IS A GREAT COURSE TO INVEST IN
Phil Hill
Alex's course takes you from start to finish on what it takes to become an adventure photographer. The business modules of the course are very helpful and provided me with some great ideas which have already worked in winning jobs with new clients. It is also great to see how he conducts his shoots and works with the athletes. I truly believe you need to invest in yourself to grow in whatever you do and i don't regret enrolling into this course for a second. Big thanks to Alex and the team

The best purchase I’ve done as a photographer is probably buying this workshop! It’s a perfect workshop to learn from the best about how to work as a adventure photographer. Alex covers everything on how to shoot, how the business works, editing and how to backup your work. It’s like having your own teacher at home + you have a special place in the community where you get to chat with likeminded photographers and get help from Alex if you need it. This workshop remind me why I started doing photography, and that’s to tell stories that people needs to see. Thank you for this Alex! You can follow me on Instagram, and I’ll gladly talk to you about photography ✨❤️

WORKSHOP THAT WALKS YOU THROUGH YOUR SKILLS AND BUSINESS

Asieh
I had taken Adventure Photography workshop by Alex less than a year before I enrolled in the Pro one. While the former gives you an intro into adventure photography, this one takes you to the next level in terms of business side of the work, something you can not easily find on other workshops that only deal with the technicality.

A MASTERPIECE OF PHOTOGRAPHIC KNOWLEDGE

Sascha Tay
When I first started following Alex I basically had no idea how to run my own photography business, all I had was a camera, a lens and a passion for shooting, so when Alex released his first adventure photography workshop I knew I had to get it as I wanted to learn as much as I could. Then he released his summer photography workshop and since going through those two I managed to actually turn photography from a dream into a full career.

Especially for a competent photographer that may lack a robust network of professional peers to bounce ideas of off or who is looking for advice on where to start on the business side of things. There are many workshops that can get you started with a camera and editing images, but this is the best one I’ve participated in that breaks down the action steps to take those photos and start building towards a business. Plus you get access to Alex’s community of other students to start networking and making those connections you might currently lack. Alex’s conversational style and friendly demeanor make this workshop a joy to watch. It feels like you are sitting down in Alex’s living room and having a conversation with a friend about the business, rather than attending a formal course on the subject.

When I first started following Alex I basically had no idea how to run my own photography business, all I had was a camera, a lens and a passion for shooting, so when Alex released his first adventure photography workshop I knew I had to get it as I wanted to learn as much as I could. Then he released his summer photography workshop and since going through those two I managed to actually turn photography from a dream into a full career. Now with the adventure pro workshop it feels incredible again to be learning about a way more in depth process to the business side of photography, the planning processes behind working with larger brands like Canon etc as well as an incredibly detailed look into Alex's editing process all of those things combined made this Alex's best workshop yet! If you're serious about turning your photography into a full on career and aren't sure about the business aspect of it or have always been too afraid to approach brands then this is THE perfect workshop for you! I seriously can't recommend it enough!

SOLID WORKSHOP

I currently work full time as an architectural photographer but I've been following Alex's work for years. Starting this tutorial... I was mostly interested in the business aspect of his photography. What I wanted out of this tutorial was a fresh perspective on approaching new clients and re-branding myself. For me, the best part of the workshop was his media kit walkthrough. This is ace! I would've paid for this chapter alone. Made me really re-think what matters when connecting with potential clients. Outside of this section, I felt that Alex guides us along an honest and thoughtful narrative to his success with lots of relatable and sometimes blunt advice. Depending on your skill level as a photographer/retoucher, some of the technical tips might not be so helpful but for his target audience, this is a spectacular workshop.
