Introduction

Okay, I'm recording again. Recording again. I'm recording Take five of the intro. Hey guys, I'm Alex Strohl and I make photos for a living. For the past seven years, I've been lucky enough to travel the world shooting for huge brands like Apple and Land Rover and... I think I've learned a couple things and I want to share them with you. But, before we get started I want you to meet the crew. That's Will, that's Joel. They're gonna be doing all the filming. So let's get started. Welcome to my first work show. So what I've done here is that I've looked at what has worked for me and what hasn't. Over the seven years I've been shooting, I've learned a couple tricks and I just want to share that valuable information with you just so I can make it easier for you, save you some time. And it doesn't what stage you are in in your photography. I think you will get something out of this. And the reason I am doing this is because I know the struggle. I know how it is to second guess yourself...

all the time and to wonder if what you're doing is right or wrong. Just the fact alone that you bought this workshop puts you into a small group of people who are taking action towards improving their photography and career. It's huge. So what's the current state of outdoor adventure photography? I think it's a crazy time to be in because there's tons of talented people out there and it's harder and harder to be unique. So in this workshop, I wanna talk about what it means to be yourself and to developing this inner story. What was once a concept that was cool, gets beaten to death in two weeks. So, you know, what do you do? Do you try to improve by going to different places, by coming up with different ideas, by using more gear? I'm gonna answer all these questions so you can have a more clear path to action. My goal with this workshop is to give you a clear action plan towards improving your photography your editing and workflow and the sometimes overwhelming, but super important, business side of things. Module one is about my approach and process to photography. So, how can you make better images, more memorable images and tell stories? How can you convey emotion? How do you stay motivated? How do you hire a crew for your shoot? The goal is that you can go from having this cool idea to executing it, shooting it, and delivering it. In module two, I'll take you through my editing process, my workflow. So I'll teach you how to make presets, how to deliver files professionally, how to have a consistent edit, and how to backup all the photos. The goal here is that you can develop your own system but more importantly, develop your own style. And module three is about getting noticed, building an audience and what are the steps towards working with the brands you dream of working with. (upbeat music)

There's a lot of useful information on how to start up your bussiness or your carreer as a photographer. Great advices, he shows his personal workflow, from the beggining of a shooting till the end. That was what I was looking for. The editing process maybe could be reduced in only one chapter. Worth it.
