Why? Because you just can't live without it

There will be classes for the 2014 Florida School. You select ONE and spend the entire week in their class, receiving hands-on instruction and plenty of opportunity for questions and answers.

Classes are held on the campus of Daytona State College in Daytona Beach. The host hotel is the Daytona Beach Resort (yes, it's on the beach).

Class Tuition is listed on the Registration page.

Be a Model or Volunteer on a Committee

The Florida School doesn't happen all by itself - it needs YOUR help! You can help by volunteering to chair or work on a committee. Doing so will earn you service merits towards your FSA (Florida Service Award). It will also help you get to know the other school attendees better, opening the door for a wider network of friends who share the same goals and challenges as yourself.

If you are bringing your spouse and/or children along to enjoy the sun and surf while you're at class, you might consider having them join you at the school one day and modeling for our instructors doing lighting and posing demos.

There are plenty of ways to get involved and earn the most out of your investment in the Florida School

2014 Florida School of Photography June 1-5, 2014

The Format…
It’s this simple. 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.
