This not-to-be-missed event promises to uplift you and leave you feeling like you can take on the world. So, what are you waiting for?
100%! We are opening this incredible event up to all photographers/creatives to join us LIVE on January 31. We all need a recharge once in awhile and this summit is sure to offer that.
NOTE: THE INTENT WAS TO BE A LIVE EVENT ONLY. THERE WERE SOME TECHNICAL ISSUES WITH SOME REGISTRANTS UNABLE TO JOIN LIVE, SO WE HAVE DECIDED TO POST THE REPLAYS FOR A LIMITED TIME SO EVERYONE CAN BE INSPIRED.
This is intended to be a live event. We want you to set aside the distractions for a few hours, immerse yourself in this positive atmosphere, feel the energy of the event with the other attendees, and get the most out of the experience you can. We've found that playing recordings later doesn't give viewers the same experience, and often come with the distractions of everyday life.
All registrants will be emailed a link to join the summit live. Be sure you add hello@theISAP.com to your safe sender list.
Though the summit is directed at pet and animal photographers, there will be SO MUCH amazing content that any photographer or creative will take away new ideas and be inspired.
ISAP is short for "International Society of Animal Photographers". It is a non-profit group dedicated to the education and betterment of pet and animal photographers. With several different online, virtual and in-person events happening throughout the year, this is the best value for niche market education and networking you'll find! Join the group today!
Yes! You will get so much from each individual speaker, whether or not you photograph animals. And if you don't have animals in front of your camera on a regular basis, the programs specifically about animals will help you be better equipped for those times you do.
Each speaker's time block is listed next to their name above. Expect each to speak for 20-25 minutes, then have 5-10 minutes for questions at the end of their program. There will be a quick break between speakers (filled with other inspiring content, of course!).
The International Society of Animal Photographers is proud to be a COMMUNITY NETWORK PARTNER (Affiliate) of the Professional Photographers of America.
