About the California Photo Festival:

Also known as CLICK! our annual California Photo Festival was launched in 2010. After years of prep and planning with inspiration from our guest instructors we invite to teach here at LIGHT Photographic Workshops throughout the years we were excited to offer our students and friends in the industry something new and unique. Beyond the 5 days of awesome photo-ops and now over 170+ sessions scheduled (in 2012) this is an event that is for those who have a passion for all things photography and enjoy the learning process to create good images. We design our schedule from sunrise to night photography with hands-on shooting sessions, digital workflow seminars and sponsored presentations. With a wide range of topics from landscape black and whites to Playboy style shooting and lighting techniques to horses on the beach at Morro Bay, we allow our attendees to sit in on sessions and classes they wouldn't normally find themselves taking a workshop or class on. It's a way for us to help you grow as a photographer, artist and professional grow and experience the best in the industry and have fun in the meantime!

This year our dates are October 7-11, 2013. We will center the festival at Embassy Suites in San Luis Obispo but our venues include spectacular areas around the Central Coast. With such a wide area of SLO county land to chose from, we are growing and diversifying our venue list every year- while still keeping the classics around. We plan to launch our schedule and websiteregistrations Mid-April so keep a look out for the announcements and make sure you register early to get the classes that fill up quickly! Just wait until you see who we have coming this year!

See you in October!
