Fireside Chats

Fireside Chats are a unique learning experience. No one single person has all the answers and each individual has specific experience and knowledge. Sharing that knowledge helps everyone. This isn’t a traditional workshop and these are not traditional workshop topics.

These events are get-togethers with a theme or topic of discussion for photographers of all skill levels.  Each event is led by 1-3 Chat Leaders who have specific knowledge about the topic.  Our Chat Leaders are invited to present a short demo, share their experience or lead the topic discussion and all participants are encouraged to join in, contribute their knowledge and add to the discussion.

Fireside Chats are not intended to replace a full workshop on the topic, they are merely a starting point and a peer-to-peer learning opportunity.  As such, they have a very low, accessible cost associated with them in order to offset printing costs, our speaker’s costs and beverage service.
