September 4-7, 2018
The Portrait Masters Conference hosted by Sue Bryce will include three-plus days of photographic instruction by many of the world’s most renowned educators including Sue Bryce, Joyce Tenneson, Zack Arias, Richard Israel, Felix Kunze, Richard Wood and Lola Melani. In addition to the lineup of seminars, renowned portrait photographer, Platon, will present the conference keynote this year. His portraits of U.S. Presidents, other world leaders, and ground-breaking frontline work have received international acclaim and recognition.
The conference begins with a welcome reception and keynote presentation by Sue Bryce, followed by three full days of intense learning and networking. A variety of “shooting bays” will allow conference attendees to put what they’ve learned into immediate practice. In addition, more than 75 manufacturers will be on hand to display and demonstrate the latest in imaging technology and software during the conference expo. Expo hours will not overlap with any seminars or keynotes so attendees will be able to participate in every aspect of the conference.
