Get your learn on.

Once again, H&H Color Lab and N-Vu are bringing together some of the leading creatives and business minds in our industry for an incredible, limited, and FREE* 2-day event.

* Travel expenses must be covered by you. We can't do it all ;)

See what last year's attendees had to say:

Day 1:

On Day 1 it's all about shooting at the El Dorado Dry Lake Bed.

  • We got models. 
  • We got wardrobe. 
  • We got instructors. 
  • We got lunch. 

So bring your gear and get ready to make some magic together!

Each instructor will be providing their own concept for you to photograph. You will have a chance to work with and learn from each instructor throughout the day and best of all, you will get to create some epic images.  

YOU WILL BE SHOOTING, so bring whatever gear you'll need to create images. You'll also be walking around on rocky terrain, so dress appropriately!

Day 2:

On Day 2 we'll hit the books. 

You can be the best photographer in the world, but if you don't learn how to run your business, you will be broke. How are you going to pay for all that fancy gear of yours? 

It's all about listening and absorbing knowledge from our insanely talented speakers. They'll show you how to take all those gorgeous images and turn them in to cold, hard cash.

Retouching for Artistic Portraits with Scott Detweiler

We will take the imagery we shot on Day One and work to finish our wondrous works into finished pieces of art.
