I just heard that Shutterfest is 80% booked and unlike any convention you've been to in the past, when it's full, that's it, nobody else is coming to the event.
In a post two weeks ago I wrote:
Remember the original Burger King slogan, “Have it your way?” Well, Sal, Taylor and their team have taken education to a level where you can customize what you need and have it your way. You can pick the classes you need the most; experience hands-on shooting with friends; check out a model like you would a library book and practice a new technique you’ve learned at the convention; spend time with specific vendors you’d like to know better and most important of all, build your network.
It all starts by joining the ShutterFest group on Facebook. You’ll get to meet a lot of the people who will be at next April’s convention. You can plan your trip so that you get the most out of every minute you’re away. Most important of all, you’re going to get the most bang for your buck versus any of the big conventions. Why? Because ShutterFest is big enough to get first class speakers and programming, but small enough for you to feel like you’re attending a boutique conference made just for you.
So many people from last year are still in touch with each other, because Sal and Taylor didn't just launch a boutique conference, but a community. I've watched the Shutterfest group work together and communicate on a regular basis following last April's program.
The bottom line is this new program has become one of the strongest networking and educational events in our industry. It's definitely going to sell out and it's only August. As I've written a few dozen times in the past, you can stand on the sidelines and watch the parade go by or you can be part of it!
Get yourself registered and join us in April. You snooze you lose! and this next program is destined to be one of the best yet! See you in St. Louis!

Check out "Why?" one of the most popular features on the SCU Blog. It's a very simple concept - one image, one artist and one short sound bite. Each artist shares what makes the image one of their most favorite. We're over 100 artists featured since the project started.
