Who is the keynote speaker?

All of our workshops and keynotes will be announced approximately 60 days before the event, but we promise it will be time well spent! At ClickCon, we are all about breaking the mold when it comes to education.

Do I have to register for classes?

At ClickCon, we are all about breaking the mold when it comes to education.
Yes. Our classes will be announced as we schedule them. Classes will be available for booking 14 days prior to the conference. Don’t worry; we have plenty to keep everyone busy and we take a much different approach to education than your typical conference. First, we cut out all the fluff. We know your time is valuable, so we don’t waste any of it; we dig right into each topic! We’ll educate you on all the amazing things your instructor has done in their career well in advance of the class.
Each class is based around ONE main topic and class times are kept at 90 minutes so you can dig right into the meat of each topic. Thirty minute breaks between classes allows you time to socialize with others and take in what you learned before heading to your next class. Class sizes are kept small and limited only to registrants.

How are the classes offered?

There are three types of classes. The first is lecture style where you will be observing an instructor. For these types of classes just bring an open mind and maybe a notepad to keep track of what you’ve learned.
Our second class type is hands-on. Be prepared with your camera as you dig right in and work alongside your class pro. Classes are held onsite and offsite (offsite classes are within a provided bus ride within a short distance of the hotel).
Our Third is Demonstration. In this style of class your instructor will demonstrate everything for you to properly learn their technique.

What levels are the classes?

We have something for everyone at ClickCon. Classes are first designated by skill level: beginner, intermediate, and advanced. Classes are also broken into topics. This helps you choose what classes best fit your interests.
When classes are announced, we also will put together suggested schedules based on your genre and skill level. We are here to take the stress out of planning your conference and just want you to sit back, enjoy, and learn!

What is the "models on loan" program?

Have some extra time and want to simply expand your portfolio? Check out our Models On Loan program. Our design team will be hard at work creating about 100 different themes during the hours of ClickCon. Models will be spending their time working with photographers and videographers all over ClickCon. All you have to do is proceed to the Model On Loan area located on the fifth floor Price Room. You can inquire there to secure a model for a scheduled hour. Please remember this is a community event and all of our ClickCon models, hair and makeup artists are donating their time to work with you. We do have one positive rule. For any model you photograph or video please upload one image or clip for their portfolio to our main gallery page. This helps us keep the costs of ClickCon down while creating a great portfolio and experience for everyone involved.

Can I use these photos for my portfolio?

Absolutely! We encourage you to use anything you shoot at ClickCon. We just ask one favor; please share them with us, as well. Our models are working for free in exchange for images for their portfolio and this is how we can offer this amazing service for FREE. We want our models to come back year after year. We will send detailed instructions on how to best share your images as the event gets closer.

I heard I can try out loaner / demo gear.

Our top sponsors will be bringing their latest gear for you to check out and demo  FREE OF CHARGE! This is an amazing opportunity to try before you buy firsthand.

What is the Gatsby Party?

Grab your camera and enjoy snacks and drinks as ClickCon transforms The Palmer House Red Laquer room into an Gatsby event. Grab your best 20’s garb because this is a dress up party. Show up and show out! Join fellow attendees and top pros to capture amazing photos and videos that will enhance both your portfolio and skills!

What are the hands-on shooting bays?

Hands-on shooting bays will transform you into another time as these high-stylized areas are designed to both inspire and educate. Join our top pros as they walk you through how they lit these sets and are obtaining their killer shots. Bring out your cameras and take advantage of these amazing image opportunities all lit by today’s latest and greatest gear.

What is your cancellation/refund policy?

We take pride in bringing you all ClickCon has to offer at an extremely affordable price. For this reason, there will be no refunds, cancellations or transfer of tickets accepted for any reason. While we are very compassionate and do understand that life happens, there is one way to make sure we can continue to bring you this great opportunity at a phenomenal price. This is to control the costs and trade of tickets to ClickCon. Please understand that this is a limited ticket event. This show will sell out. When you book a spot to attend ClickCon you are reserving class space that others will not be able to attend once sold out. We will not allow the transfer or trade of tickets due to the possibility of scalpers selling them at higher price. This conference is truly for the community and we would like everyone to have the same chance at attending the conference at the very same price.
