It’s not quite a technique or sales conference, more of an inspirational conference about the importance of photography and giving back.

Josh JonesUSA

You will understand, that Photography is not just about making photos.

Fearless Photographers is a conference where you will be inspired by legitimate speakers, to make meaningful photography. You’ll be inspired to be your best self, since the proceeds go to the Environmental Defense Fund. You’ll connect with others in a way you haven’t before, and create lasting friendships, in a welcoming and inclusive atmosphere. No one will try to sell you anything, in the down-to-earth, intimate setting. And, party…you will party!

I would encourage future attendees to take the plunge and go! I wish I had connected with Fearless Photographers earlier in my career. I probably could have found my way to where I am now, sooner. I could have avoided falling into a trap of thinking I needed to do what other photographers were doing. I’ve known about Fearless Photographers for a long time, and had inklings that it was a good direction for me. When I decided to focus on moments, I began to find my way to Fearless Photographers, and I’m so glad I did.

Compared to WPPI, FC Europe is refreshing. All the speakers didn’t just talk about getting better for your sake, but for your clients. When they did talk about how to get better in photography, they actually taught something useful. Not just believe in your self type of speech. They made me ask questions to myself that dug deeper. And even though everyone who attended were accomplished photographers in their own right, I didn’t sense any ego. It felt more like a homecoming of some sort. Like a family.

The energy and vibe you get in this conference is great value!

Yiannis SotiropoulosGreece

Probably the conference will be the biggest milestone in your photography career.

It’s a way to become more consious about your photography and who you are as a person in this. You get good tools to develop yourself. Besides this, everybody from every country is feeling connected as a photographer. A lot of friends are made during the fearless conference and the party’s are awesome.

Isabelle Hattink Netherlands

There is a lot of crying, hugging, soul searching, affirmation, A ha! moments and partying – come prepared to have a good time. You come as strangers and leave as family.

Anna Nguyen USA

Come with an open mind and an open heart. The conference has cathartic moments that force you to peel at your own layers, but such an outpouring of inspiration and motivation to get you back to the root of how this job (wedding photography) is so much bigger than the surface. Come to fearless, to be brave enough to expose your insecurities and heal among family.

Brooke PriceUSA

It’s an extremely intimate gathering of photographers where there are no barriers. It’s like a bunch of photographers getting together to discuss what challenges they face and what inspires them the most.

Raheem GaubaUSA

Storytelling at its best. Incredible stories that push you and inspire you to follow your own path despite all obstacles. Food for the heart and the mind. Less technical topics.

Susanne HeikerGermany

Although the conference was about photography in general, I feel like we all had something in common. We all want to do something bigger than us, getting involved in other projects to (somehow) give back.

Mary SandovalUSA

Most Fearless conferences have been equal parts Inspiration, Information and Celebration.

Lauren BrimhallUSA

It’s a conference for photographers who are looking to challenge their preconceptions and find their path to reaching their potential. You’ll meet 125-150 new best friends.

Joe AppelUSA

Every year I come home from Conference, recharged, refocused, encouraged, expanded, inspired, and more in tune and aligned to my inner purpose after a year of working distractions.

Jeremy Minnerick USA

Practical, communal learning with an emphasis on community and betterment.

Dave ShayUSA

Enlightening, inspiring and something that everyone should attend at least once a year  !

Mari HarsanUSA

I’ve only been to the one in US, and about that I would say- inspiring not only on the photography level but also on a human level.
