Absolutely not. Come one, come all. That’s our motto.

Is there a certain skill level I should be?
Can I switch my classes around?
Maybe. Probably. Please see a Team Pixel member to check availability and switch your classes. We will do our best to accommodate your request, but until revised, please do not go to a class you are not registered for. It simply isn’t fair to other students if their class is abnormally large.
Is there an extra fee for any courses?
NOPE! Another amazingly unique feature of Pixel Photo Fest. No hidden fees. You have access to all courses.
I’m hungry. I’m thirsty. Where do I go?
Lunches will be provided as designated on the schedule. Additionally, there will be a drink station set up at each class location that will be accessible during the workshops.

Will I be able to use images in my portfolio? Will I be able to use images in my portfolio?
Of course you will! We have heard horror stories of other conferences placing limitations on how the photos can be used, forcing you to use the conference logo, etc. We find that to be ridiculous. All models have signed a model release form giving you the ability to use your images in your portfolio, website, social media, etc. The release allows the photographer to use the images for promotional and portfolio use, but not for sale.
Where else can I share my images?
If you want to share your images and see what others have capture at Pixel Photo Fest, feel free to share your images to our Facebook and Instagram pages. We love to see the event from your eyes!
