FAQs

HOW DID YOU DETERMINE THE PRICE?

This is a premier event that includes lectures, reviews, and meals across four days with seven keynote speakers and 11 additional reviers—all nationally and internationally recognized. We're also pleased to act as a consierge, pairing attendees with a range of lodging options that will work for every budget. Having surveyed the plethora of photography workshops out there, we wanted to put together our own original event that takes care of all of the pesky details so our attendees can focus exclusively on honing their work and maximizing time with some of the best minds in the field of photography.

Considering the high caliber of our panel of speakers, we feel it’s a rare and valuable opportunity to have them all in the same place together (compared to the legwork required in setting up solo meetings during a costly trip to New York or LA, with no guarantee of accessing top decision-makers.)

IT FEELS LIKE A BIG INVESTMENT.

We believe your career is worth investing in. Portfolios get you in the door (so let’s take yours to the next level). But even when you’re in the door, our industry is built on personal relationships (so let us introduce you to the decision-makers you should know). We believe that we can help our audience and creative community find sustainable creative work. And if we succeed, we'll have an even better community to work with.

WHO WILL BE REVIEWING MY PORTFOLIO?

That’s the beauty of this workshop: Attendees will get reviews from the keynote speakers as well as a mix of additional reviewers with the highest credentials. Attendees will get a 25- to 30-minute session with eight reviewers over the course of the event.

WHAT KIND OF LECTURES WILL THE SPEAKERS BE GIVING?

Lectures will focus on key information attendees need to know about succeeding in the industry today, with a mix of case studies thrown in from speakers’ from their recent work (for example, at our 2017 workshop, creative director D.W. Pine spoked about how TIME magazine covers come together, key realizations he discovered while compiling their edition on the 100 Most Influential Photos of All Time, and how to hustle successfully as a freelancer.)

There will also be Q&A sessions with the panel as a whole, allowing a third avenue to get specific questions answered outside of your eight review sessions.

WILL THERE BE TIME TO INTERACT WITH THE SPEAKERS OUTSIDE OF THEIR LECTURES?

Our speakers will be around for the entire five days, with ample time to chat and connect during the off time around the resort. Eighteen total professionals is a high ratio of reviewers to attendess—and we imagine that many of our attendees will want to go to Livingston, Yellowstone National Park, or just shoot around. If you want extra time and are proactive, we're confident that you’ll get as much as you want.

HOW MUCH OF THE FOCUS IS EDITORIAL VS. COMMERCIAL VS. FINE ART?

We’ll be representing all three equally. In our experience, editorial gives you flexibility when experimenting with style, funding personal projects, and gaining legitimacy in your artistic voice when it comes to more serious endeavors like art books, gallery shows, etc. It also allows for a second or even third life to your work, if know how to leverage the appropriate usage rights.

While commercial work pays more, you also have to give up more of your creative control. That being said, it is of course an essential part of making a living as a visual artist and we’ll be delving into how to combine the two so that you can achieve the best of both worlds by earning a substantial living while also having the freedom to explore and grow as a storyteller.
