WHAT’S THE FORMAT?

WHERE DOES IT TAKE PLACE?

Photo MiniCon takes place over Slack and Zoom, with multiple ‘rooms’ running for people to attend different sessions.

BREAKFAST SESSION

So in the true spirit of community, we’re putting a new spin on BYOB: Bring Your Own Breakfast. So whether you’re a fry up or piece of toast kind of person, we want to start the day off over virtual breakfast and a chat with you before getting into the swing of the day.

THE SESSIONS

We’ll then split into two virtual rooms depending on your preferred schedule and get started with the in-depth sessions. We’re making them as interactive as focused as possible so you can take away real value there and then on the day. We’ll post the Zoom links to the sessions ahead of the start in each room (Slack Channel) so you can be online and ready to attend the sessions when they start.

We’ll all be back in the main room when we break for lunch, which will be followed by more sessions on the practical and business side of photography.

FUN & SOCIAL EVENING

As the conference day progresses weary brains will be allowed a break with more fun practical sessions showcase sessions. In the evening, in true BYOB (Bring Your Own Booze) fashion, we’ll be winding down a long day of learning with one of our popular evening events, starting your weekend off in true Traverse fashion!
