After that Gavin Ward will be teaching a course on his unique style of lighting and posing to compliment his subjects. Learn how he uses his background in Fashion and Fine Art portaiture to create his unique and stylish images.  Fall Print Comp awards will be given in the late afternoon with a networking happy hour to round out the day. Stay tuned on social media for more announcements for this event! 

    Not only are the speakers and content amazing but the location is a photographer's dream!  Surety Hotel is in located in the historic Savings and Loans building downtown Des Moines.  It's modern elegant features combine beautifully with industrial architecture and thoughtful furnishings.  It is located in the midst of some of the state's best bars and eateries. Plan to stay an extra day and explore downtown Des Moines!
