  • "Out of Acadia was indeed something special for me.  Having not one or two but over a dozen amazing professional photographers with varied backgrounds to learn from provided an enriching experience I will always remember.  I was also extremely impressed by just how well organized the Out of Chicago team was in making the event run so smoothly.  I will definitely be back!"

  • "From beginning to end, the Out of Acadia conference was an absolutely amazing photography experience. I was repeatedly struck by the fact that the instructors seemed to be as excited to be there as the attendees were, and how easily and happily they shared their expertise. I came home with a newfound passion for photography, new friendships, many happy memories, and more than a few pictures I plan on hanging on my walls. Thank you Out of Acadia/Chicago for making this week the learning adventure of my lifetime!"
