We organized the first Out of Chicago Photography Conference in 2014. It started with 150 of our closest photography friends getting together to learn from some of our favorite photographers, and it’s grown to over 400 photographers from around the world learning from some of the best photography instructors.
In 2016, we launched the Out of Chicago Winter Conference, and took the show on the road to New York City. In 2017, we’re heading to Acadia National Park in Maine. And in fall 2018, we’re headed to Moab!
