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. Each morning, 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. Every afternoon and evening, Master Classes will be available for an additional fee. Multiple speakers will be presenting at certain times. Be sure to consult with 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.

+ Can I attend more than one Master Class?

Of course! There are two blocks each day for Master Classes - one in the afternoon and one in the early evening. The 2-hour 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.

+ 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.


+ Is lodging included?

Attendees are responsible for their own transportation and lodging. A room block will be available at our conference location, the Hilton San Antonio Airport. A group rate discount of $119 per room/night is being offered to all attendees. Click here to book online. 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 (210) 340-6060. While you are not required to stay at the Hilton San Antonio Airport, it is strongly recommended.

+ Which airport should I fly into?

San Antonio International is about a 10 minute drive to the conference location at the Hilton San Antonio Airport.

+ Do I need a rental car?

Nope. You can catch an Uber from the airport to the hotel. However, if you’d like to come in early or stay a few days later to explore, a rental car would come in handy. Car sharing with other attendees is another great option.

+ What is your refund policy?

All payments are non-refundable. Tickets are transferrable through March 15th. Please email hello@thehybridco.com with the name, email address and phone number for the person you are transferring your ticket to. If you have purchased a master class, the entire registration including master class must be transferred.

+ 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 $500 per person. However, early bird pricing is available for the first two weeks at checkout!
