2018 shutterfest course lineup

2018 is ShutterFest’s 5 year Anniversary! We couldn’t have done it without you.

Every year, we listen to your feedback and adjust the event to make it what you want it to be. This year is no different. Our goal is to create the best photography event on the planet by giving you access to incredible shooting opportunities and access to some of the best instructors in the world.

This year’s lineup and courses are sure to deliver an incredible experience for all ShutterFesters. Union Station has increased their space giving us more room for larger lecture style classes. In addition, we are limiting the hands-on classes to 50 and increasing the amount of live-demonstrations for a better learning experience.

There is a lot to be excited about this year. We can’t wait to see you.

Registration is first come first serve and will open up two weeks before the event for all attendees. Be sure to monitor the private Facebook group for more details.

Hands-On

These are shooting courses. You will be shooting and working. Bring your camera, gear, or whatever you need for the course and to create create images. Expect to have some level of shooting.

Live Demonstration

These are instructor-led courses where you will see a live demonstration of what the instructor is teaching. You can still bring your camera to these courses and you can photograph, but the goal of the course is NOT for you to shoot or to ensure you get a shot. The goal is for you to see how and why the instructor does what he/she does in order to get the final result.

Lecture

These are non-shooting courses. Typically classroom-based, bring your laptop and notepad and focus on learning!
