CPE is the freshest, most authentic and real conference you will attend. Our goal is to educate, inspire and excite our attendees with a focus on education and community. Our vision for this conference is to have a small setting workshop vibe but with some of the biggest speakers, you have ever seen. We reflect on the photography communities' diversity in gender, ethnicity, age and artistic expression. If you want a place to come and learn from some of the most talented photographers in the industry, this is it.
