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.  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.

+ When will Styled Shoots and Master Classes be announced?

August 15th!


+ Can I attend more than one Master Class or Styled Shoot?

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 and hone in on your craft.


+ Is lodging included?

Attendees are responsible for their own transportation and lodging. A room block will be available at our conference location, the Bahia Resort Hotel. A group rate discount of $179 per room/night + $20 reduced resort fee is being offered to all attendees for all rooms booked by January 31, 2020. 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 1-800-576-4229 While you are not required to stay at the Bahia, but it is strongly recommended and a huge part of the experience.
