Real inspiration

Alex is so good at sharing from his own experiences and I thank him for that. I’ve seen both his workshops and found them both really inspiring. I can recommend them both to anyone who likes taking photos. All the best, Stian Servoss

A True Source of Inspiration

Andres
Alex does a fantastic job of making you want to discover yourself and what you can do through photography! Exploring the world around me in great depth is something Alex inspired me to do, and if you're up to the challenge, he can teach you how to do that as well! You'll learn to capture the little things in a unique and memorable way!!

Fall in Love with Your Vision

Mark Logan
Alex is just as inspiring with his workshop as he is with his photographs. He emphasizes a creative approach supported by a second-nature understanding of the tech. I myself don't even own a camera, but I've been borrowing a 5D Mark ii w/ a third party lens. Alex makes me feel like a photographer regardless of the gear I have. I've also never touched Lightroom or Photoshop before and his editing sessions gave me a quick rundown so I could get started. I'm now preparing to launch a separate photography page as I ramp up my California photo trips as practice for travel abroad. With Alex's workshop and his continual inspiration through example, I am rapidly strengthening my photography and exploring more than ever before. Cheers to Alex and his team. I sincerely recommend. - Mark Logan - CA based. Director, Writer, Protographer

The art of storytelling with photos...

Alex's sophomore workshop doesn't disappoint. He openly shares his thought process, his vision and his creative workflow in a way that is warm and welcoming. His section on gear is straight forward and he does a great job explaining "why" he choses each piece of equipment. His style and the way he delivers his workshop is just so easy to listen to and it really feels like your just having a in depth conversation with a friend, who happens to be a master of his chosen craft, photography. My favorite section is actually the bonus material "Planning and researching the perfect trip," where he shares travel hacks and his process of researching a trip. I learned a few really great tools and can't wait for his next workshop. Thanks Alex!

Outstanding workshop

Alex's workshops have absolutely been worth the cost. While its possible to gain a lot of free information on photography skills through the internet and YouTube, Alex's invaluable tips go several steps further. You will not regret buying the workshop.
