Okay, I get that it's May and April, 2017 seems so far away, but this is one of those "you snooze - you lose" blog posts. If you haven't been to ShutterFest, Sal Cincotta and the team just finished the 2017 promotional video I'm sharing below. The video pretty much says it all, but having been involved in all things "Shutter" since the beginning including Shutter Magazine, here's a little more perspective on what ShutterFest really is.
ShutterFest is a community of friends and associates who all share a passion for imaging. The ShutterFest Forum on Facebook is a constant exchange of support, information and often plenty of humor. What makes it especially unique is that it's become a troll-free zone. Everybody knows each other and as a result, nobody's hiding behind the anonymity of a computer screen. It's all about the community and support for each other.
I know it sounds like a line from a series of consumer products, but ShutterFest is about "real people, real passion and real education". Take it a step further into the consumer products world and it's a conference "built by photographers for photographers." And, while I know this stuff is sounding pretty hokey, there's a reason why it's become such an incredible event each year for so many of us.
