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!
Always looking to challenge the status quo, Sal Cincotta and Shutter Magazine have created an industry first, a FREE photography conference for 400 select people. A conference where you come to learn from the biggest names in the industry, shoot and work with models, and party Woodstock style, ok maybe not just like Woodstock, but you get the point.
Songfreedom is providing LIVE entertainment at the event, so you can guarantee one thing: its going to be a party to remember.
Shutterfest is not a conference. It’s an EXPERIENCE!
ShutterFest is a new kind of conference. Sal Cincotta and Shutter Magazine want to host something different, something that will be more than just a conference. They want to provide a learning EXPERIENCE to the industry. ShutterFest will be that experience. Be prepared to learn, network, and have a blast in the process!
How do I get a ticket?
Tickets are a scarce resource. Being a FREE event, you can imagine, seats are going to go fast. Tickets are on a first come first serve basis. Once the seats are gone, they are gone! Do not try and bribe Sal for a ticket – he has promised to stand strong.
How many people will be there?
400. This is a limited seat event.
Is it really free?
Yes. The goal of the event is to provide FREE QUALITY EDUCATION and give back to the community, all while having fun!
Why is there a $59 payment required if its free?
In order to ensure people actually show up and are serious about being a part of this event, we need some skin in the game. Your $59 reservation is 100% refundable once you show up. We will have a check waiting for you with your name on it at the sign-in table. If you don’t show up then you will not get your money back. So, be serious about taking your education to the next level before you register. We want you here!
Can I bring a friend?
No. Well, yes. They have to register as well and go through the same process.
Do I get to shoot?
Are you being serious? This is the Shoot in the “Shoot. Learn. Party.” Of course you get to shoot! Bring your camera, gear, and your thirst to learn. It will be a portfolio building event without a doubt.
What hotel options are available?
We have pre-negotiated rates at the Hilton Ball Park where the event is being held. Be sure to stay at the hotel because there is a goodie bag for you with several hundred dollars in specials only available to those staying at the hotel. Visit www.behindtheshutter.com/shutterfest for more hotel information.
What topics will be covered?
This is a great event to attend no matter what skill-level you are. We will be focused on weddings, portraits, video techniques, business topics like pricing and packaging, and legal concepts for your studio.
What can I expect to learn?
Whatever you want! The best part of this event is your access to the speakers and your ability to just experiment. You will have access to models, lighting, backdrops, and more. The event will be whatever you make it.
What will the format be?
We will have both platform classes and break-out sessions where you will be HANDS-ON in very small groups.
