@Wildmanrouse Webinars

Inspiring.Educational.Fun

For years @wildmanrouse has been looking to spread his extensive knowledge and skill and inspiring others to a much wider audience than his UK workshops allowed. Now, thanks in part to the increased use of home working and the Zoom webinar software, @wildmanrouse has started to realise him dream.

He started off slowly, hosting a presentation on his work for Olympus UK e-group. This was then followed by 2 x 1 hour webinars to fundraise  for the NHS Masks for Heroes Campaign, talking about his career to date, which raised over £1000 for the worthy cause.

Right now during lockdown every photographer is frustrated, @wildmanrouse webinars will provide some light relief from the daily struggle plus will equip you with new skills for the future when you will be able to get out and about and use them. Remember too HIS WEBINARS ARE LIVE, so you get him right there with you in your living room, not some pre-recorded video. With a dodgy cockney accent. Reaction so far has been amazing, with so many photographers saying his sessions are uplifting, feel good webinars and good therapy as well as inspiring for their photography.

Community feeling - you will get to know @wildmanrouse quite well during these sessions as he always chats to everyone before the webinars begin. He also likes to throw in extra content, like recent shots he has taken so always expect surprises. It is a nice community and we have plans for that in the future too...





Community comments

Here's some comments from emails received after attending our webinars, real love from real people:

Working with light was a really really wonderful course – transformative and has me thinking much more about light so very VERY grateful. In all honesty I learnt so much and gave me a new perspective THANK YOU

I do want to say thank you so much for putting on the course, I’ve learned lots and really enjoyed it

I just wanted to say thanks for a terrific two sessions today. It’s really got me thinking about what mood I’m trying to capture in my photographs.

Just got off the Thursday session and wanted to say I loved every minute of it!  I love the way that you’re prepared to share how you get all these wonderful shots, very unusual in this world!  

Andy, thanks for the meeting today, the detail you are giving is fantastic and very much appreciated and it is good of you to do this. The images you are using are inspirational to see and certainly make me want to get out and shoot, to try and use your ideas, settings and advice, to try recreate the ‘atmosphere' using the wildlife available in my area



So what can you expect from the webinars?

Humour, fun chat, stories and in-depth technical knowledge with a very relaxed way of teaching. You don't just get a boring lesson with someone droning on, @wildmanrouse will bring each picture to life with the inside story too. Of course the tech info he gives will be very very focussed and to the point, just the essentials he has learnt from such a tough career. So it will be a good watch regardless of what your interest, where in the world you live or what he is talking about. If the webinar is entitled "Technical hints for photographing the Tibetan Yak" then you can be assured that it will have tips for photographing wildlife in your garden, everything is applicable anywhere. And fun because as some clients have said "@wildmanrouse is a showman and an extrovert" and that gives us the edge with these webinars.



Why will the webinars be useful to me?

@wildmanrouse is well respected in the business, has been a professional for 22 years and has achieved success 26 times in major international competitions. He has used many different brands of camera and is well versed in all of their operation and is an expert on mirrorless cameras. He has an incredible collection of images, and whether he is talking about a specific species or a technique, his unrivalled work allows him to illustrate any point effectively for any level of photographer.



The details

How does it work? - All webinars will be on the Zoom platform (installation not necessary) and will begin with an introduction from Andy followed by an illustrated slideshow with a video showing his animated self (that's a way to describe it!) in the bottom corner. After the presentation is complete you will be able to ask questions too. 

Does it cost the same as a new Rolls Royce? - nope it doesn't. Whilst others charge a lot for webinars and with his experience Andy could as well, he has decided that during these times he will set the bar at a very reasonable cost for each webinar.

Will the webinars be recorded? - After much thought and discussion with clients and our team of advisors (the WAGS - Wildmanrouse Advisory Group!!) we have decided to offer a Media Package that includes the recordings of each session. The videos will be available for streaming only in HD, they will be edited to remove all names of any participants due to GDPR regulations. The recording will be an exact mirror of what you see during the session, complete with dodgy commentary in a real cockney accent. In the instance of a poor / problematic recording we reserve the right to substitute the recording of your session with one of the identical session on another date.

We should point out at this stage that recording of our sessions is strictly illegal, contravenes GDPR guidelines, breaks our copyright and will be immediately reported to the relevant authorities so please don't spoil our trust in you. 

Community modules - we have introduced the concept of Community Modules that are available for all webinars (for Working with Light they are only available for those buying the exclusive packages). These modules are bonus content and are designed to provide extra teaching featuring positive and fun critiques of your work that you have produced during the webinar. 

Timings - we have really tried to make the webinars at times that are suitable for time zones throughout the world but this isn't easy and we realise there is a balance there. Right now we are all out of balance anyway so there is no right or wrong time!
