I've learned that it's possible to pursue my passion.

It was a very interesting course! Thank you, more on photography would be great : )

Ive been shooting for 5 years full time and this year hard some good brakes in to commercial work. It was interesting i guess on a more philosophical level to hear how he deals with clients and his vision and drive. Mostly i feel motivated to change some of the ways i look and feel about situation. Good stuff thanks

I have learned so much about the creative process. I have found inspiration to challenge myself in this time of difficulty and confinement and a way to express myself and communicate to my family like I always have. I simply have to alter my style of photography to speak a different way. Thank you Mr. Chin.

I love the sentiment about when you have to be the best, you are the best. The whole having to rise to the occasion is so critical and I think that plays out so well when you work and partner with others that not only bring out the best in you but challenge you to elevate yourself further. There is only growth outside our comfort zones. So cool and what a nice tribute to Dean Potter. So sad to lose such a free spirit.

Congrats big time to Jimmy on the Oscar! Wow, so cool--and well-deserved. Although I think Meru was even better and also deserved an award.

Creativity flourishes when team work and talent meet. It becomes this mutual respect for craft and a different perspective must be welcomed in order for everyone to grow and learn.

So far in the masterclass I feel it is lacking teaching structure. There is a lot of Jimmy telling us how good he is and telling us ego boosting stories but there doesn't seem to be a lot of content. In this video it took 15 minutes to tell us its good to have friends to go on expedition with and to tell us (again) that Jimmy has shot a lot of different activities in the mountains.
