Who is Calibrate for?
Calibrate is created for wedding + portrait photographers who are interested in building community with other photographers and learning together. Calibrate is all about building relationships and learning and growing in a safe and encouraging community. All levels of experience in the industry are welcome!
Who is the speaker this year?
This year we have the lovely Shari + Mike Photographers as our keynote speakers!
I'm not a wedding photographer. Can I still come?
Of course! Our speaker will talk about business, social media, lighting and posing, so you aren't going to want to miss it!
What does the retreat schedule look like?
The unofficial start time is Saturday, October 28, with a casual wine + cheese mixer. On Sunday, October 29, we'll enjoy a full day of learning with Shari and Mike, and on Monday, October 30, we'll be brunching, brainstorming, and portrait swapping. There will also be opportunity to sign up for an optional portfolio review with Shari and Mike. To check out a more detailed schedule, scroll to the bottom of this page.
Why are Shari + Mike only speaking for one day? What will we be doing for the other day?
Calibrate Retreats are meant to be a place to learn and connect with other photographers. It's important to us that you get time to do both of these things! That's why we'll spend one day learning, and another day debriefing and brainstorming together.
What will Shari + Mike be speaking about?
Shari and Mike will be speaking on everything from posing and lighting, to shoot prep, and business strategy!
What is included in my registration fee?
Calibrate 2017 is $900 + gst, which includes a full day of teaching with Shari + Mike, snacks for the day, lunch and dinner. Yum!
