No Studio, No Problem
Within 1 year Dylan went from being a struggling actor/bar tender to a full time portrait photographer without ever using a studio. Managing natural light outside can be difficult but Dylan's lighting style brings the benefits of studio lighting out on location. 
Learn About The Gear
Dylan has simplified his bag of gear into just 1 camera, 1 lens,  2 speedlights, 1 reflector, and 2 modifiers. Photographers on any budget will be able to easily afford the equipment necessary to shoot similar images. 
Learn How To Light
Dylan's photography isn't about expensive gear, it's about the knowledge of how to use what you have. In this tutorial you will learn how to light in ideal lighting situations, extremely harsh lighting situations, and even at night. Dylan's techniques will help you produce repeatable results in any location at any time of day. 
Learn How To Edit
50% of Dylan's signature look can be attributed to his coaching and lighting, the other 50% comes from his post production. This tutorial includes 4 different RAW files that you can use to follow along with Dylan as he works. After following along in Photoshop for over 3 hours with Dylan, you'll know everything necessary to edit your portraits at a world class level.

I bought this last week and it's AWESOME! Dylan has a great presence and explains everything so anyone can understand and he doesn't babble on and on for no reason. Everything he says has purpose. Between lessons I had to run outside and try different things he taught and was so excited with the new knowledge. I also learned some incredible post process techniques that are going to improve my own work dramatically. Money well spent! Thanks Dylan!

Is there a syllabus for the course?

I use a FujiFilm X-T2. Is there any reason your system would not work with a mirrorless camera? I'm not sure about the equipment you might recommend in your tutorial so I just wanted to check first.

As long as you can use either high speed sync with flash or a neutral density filter, you will be able to achieve the same results. I know most of the major brands support HSS and Profoto (and others) now have remotes for most of the brands (not sure about Fuji).
