Basecamp is our high-intensity photojournalism crash course, where attendees embed for a week in the same location as an upcoming Collective Quarterly issue, hunt feature stories, and receive critique from internationally recognized photo editors.
VENTURE is a high-end, all-inclusive trip that focuses on lifestyle and nature photography. By day, our instructors will lead a tight-knit group of selected attendees to scenes usually inaccessible to the public. By night, we'll eat and drink well.
Showcase is our yearly portfolio review and lecture series at Chico Hot Springs in Montana. Attendees will spend the week talking shop with creative directors, editors, and photographers at the highest levels of editorial and commercial photography.
ISSUE 7 BASECAMP: GEORGIA COAST
July 12 – 19, 2017
This gun-slinging workshop will take place over one week in Darien, Georgia, the perfect midpoint on the coast where you’ll be able to access everything from the pristine, antebellum districts of Savannah to the vibrant cultures of the barrier islands off the coast—all while working alongside internationally recognized photo professionals. This is the site of our next issue, and some of the best stories to come out of the week will have the opportunity to be recognized and published in this issue of The Collective Quarterly.
VENTURE: PENOBSCOT BAY
August 20 – 25, 2017
Our all-inclusive, luxury photo expedition to Maine is made for passionate lifestyle, landscape, and wildlife photographers who want to add incredible imagery to their portfolio. We’ll use a private boat to travel among the islands of Penobscot Bay, and we'll be headquartered at a historic lodge on North Haven Island, where we’ll enjoy the best local fare Maine has to offer. It's also the perfect trip for couples—whether you shoot alongside each other professionally or just want an excuse to get away and experience northeast island culture together.
ISSUE 9 BASECAMP

2018 PORTFOLIO SHOWCASE: CHICO HOT SPRINGS
The 2017 Portfolio Showcase was a success! This all-inclusive showcase took place in March at Montana's Chico Hot Springs Resort, a well-known stomping ground for cowboys and celebrities alike. Alongside directors from TIME, Wired, Bicycling, Patagonia, and MAGNUM Photos, we walked through attendees' portfolios, heard lectures from an all-star panel of speakers, and networked over beers at the saloon. The trip sparked imaginations and connected photographers to some of the most experienced minds working in visual art today. More information on our 2018 event coming soon.
