SF+ // Advanced photography classes
April 7, 2023
Are you an experienced photographer? Looking for a class that can skip the “How do I turn my flash on?” questions and get to the real stuff? Looking for a deep dive on photography and business topics? Add SF+ on to your ticket! You’ll get access to your choice of four, two-hour long advanced topics taught by hand-selected speakers that know their sh*t.
ShutterFest is the UN-Conference! ShutterFest is not meant to structure your entire life by sitting in conference room after conference room. Say goodbye to death by PowerPoint. This is YOUR conference! Make it what you want. Make it about you. Shoot. Learn. Party. That’s the mantra here.
First time here? Well, take everything you know about conferences and forget it! ShutterFest is all about community. We are one big family. Everyone here loves photography and wants what’s best for the industry. It’s not about rock star mentality, it’s about growing as an artist and being around like-minded people who share the same love and passion you do.
If you are tired of the same old conference format and being lost in the crowd, then come enjoy a more intimate setting where you can network with peers and work side-by-side with some of the leading professional photographers and educators in the world!
