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?

Registration for these shoots will begin November 1st!

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

Of course! We have intentionally setup the schedule to allow for Masterclasses and Styled Shoots to be repeated to fit into your schedule. Each styled shoot will have four stations for you to photograph in groups of 10 ensuring you have plenty of time to add to your portfolio!

+ 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.

+ Are meals included in my registration?

Breakfast, lunch, and coffee breaks are included Monday - Wednesday. 

+ Is lodging included?

Attendees are responsible for their own transportation and lodging. As a trade off for the awesome styled shoot locations located at Camp Lucy, there is only lodging on property for our instructors and staff.  There are two hotels we recommend, Courtyard by Marriott, and Holiday Inn Express. Prices range at these hotels from $100-150/night for a double occupancy room.

+ How much is parking at Camp Lucy?


+ Which airport should I fly into?

Austin International airport is a 20 minute drive away from Camp Lucy.

+ Do I need a rental car?

It is definitely recommended to rent a car. If you would like to ride share with other attendees, just post in our Facebook group!

+ What is your refund policy?

All payments are non-refundable. Tickets are transferrable through January 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, mask, and something to take notes. Some Classes and Shoots will have equipment requirements. See class descriptions for more info once they are released on November 1st.
