you have questions

we have answers

+ Who should attend The Hybrid Collective?

Digital, film, or hybrid shooters who are ready to dive in head first and learn from some of today’s top portrait, wedding and family photographers.

+ Do I have to worry about choosing which speaker’s class I’ll attend?

We put a lot of thought into this and have planned accordingly. In our general session, only one speaker will be presenting at a time. This way, no one has to pick and choose between any great speakers or topics, and you will be able to hear from each one of the guest speakers.  We do have various Breakout Sessions which are included with your registration to hone in on whatever aspect of your business you'd like to specialize on.  On our last day, Master Classes will be available for an additional fee. During the Breakout Sessions and Master Classes various speakers will be presenting at those times. Be sure to consult the schedule to choose your classes. Seats are limited, so the sooner you act, the better.

+ If I’m new to photography and shooting hybrid, should I still attend?

Of course! What a great opportunity to learn from some of the top names in the industry so early on in your career. And with the Master Classes every day, there are additional opportunities for even more in-depth instruction.

+ Is this only for wedding photographers? 

Nope! Anyone using a camera to document what’s important to them will benefit from joining us at The Hybrid Co.

+ Can I attend more than one Master Class?

Of course! The 90 minute classes are limited to 50 spots each for $175 per session, and the styled shoots are limited to 25 spots each for $350 per session at checkout.

+ Do I have to attend a Master Class?

Not at all. They are just another chance to learn from and interact with this year’s instructors.

+ I already registered and would like to add a styled shoot/master class.  How do I do that? 

Please email with your full name and the title of the requested class/shoot and we will get you in if there is availability. Your card used to purchase your registration will be charged immediately.

+ Is lodging included?

Attendees are responsible for their own transportation and lodging. A room block will be available at our conference location, the Gaylord Opryland Resort & Convention Center (Opryland Marriott). A group rate discount of $189 per room/night is being offered to all attendees for all rooms booked by April 16th. You can book your room online HERE.  If you choose to call the hotel directly, you must mention that you are part of The Hybrid Co when making your reservation, in order to get the group rate. The number for the property is (615) 889-1000. While you are not required to stay at the Opryland, but it is strongly recommended.

+ Which airport should I fly into?

Nashville International Airport (BNA) is about a 20 minute drive to the conference location.

+ Do I need a rental car?

Nope.  If you are staying at the Opryland, you can purchase a round trip shuttle ticket for $35 while booking your room online HERE. Once onsite, there are restaurants, a great late night scene, shopping and a shuttle to take you to downtown Nashville!

+ What is your refund policy?

All payments are non-refundable. Tickets are transferrable through April 1st. Please email with the name, email address and phone number for the person you are transferring your ticket to. Master class and styled shoot tickets can be transferred to someone who has purchased a general registration ticket.  Unfortunately, tickets cannot be purchased to a master class or styled shoot alone.

+ Can I sign up for your newsletter?

Yes! We'd love to keep you in the know.  Sign up HERE.

+ What should I bring to the conference?

An open mind and something to take notes. Some Master Classes have equipment requirements. See class descriptions for more info.

+ Is there a discount for multiple members from a studio?

Unfortunately, no. Tuition is $750 per person. However, early bird pricing is available prior to April 1st!
