The Florida School takes place once a year for one week only (Sunday, June 1 – Thursday, June 5, 2014). You sign up for one class by one instructor. For five days in June you’ll be treated to an intense learning opportunity being taught by one of the industry’s most knowledgeable photographers. Not only do you gain the information necessary to become a better photographer, you gain a whole new circle of friends who share the same aspirations and goals as yourself. This is what makes the Florida School so special.

Orientation will take place at the Daytona State College campus, building location to be announced. Please join us for our opening ceremonies and registration; featuring some light refreshments, brief announcements and information for the week.
