This year we're excited to announce our keynote speaker is National Geographic photographer Kiliii Yüyan, who is a master at uncovering the hidden stories of polar regions, wildlands and Indigenous communities. Informed by ancestry that is both Nanai (Siberian Native) and Chinese-American, Kiliii explores the the human relationship to the natural world from different cultural perspectives, with photos and stories that will awe and inspire. He will be teaching one of the workshops during the daytime session, and delivering the keynote speech at the end of the evening event.
As well as Kiliii’s workshop, five additional workshops will take place throughout the day with a host of other exceptional photographers including: Learning event lighting with Alistair Maitland and one light portraits with Cathie Archbould and Manu Keggenhoff.
This year, for the first time, we will also be holding an optional portfolio review session for an additional cost. More details about the portfolio reviews will be sent out to workshop ticket holders at a later date. The review session will take place in the time slot between the end of the workshops and the beginning of the evening event.
The cost of the workshop tickets also include entry into the evening social event with further presentations and a chance to network, learn or simply have a few drinks from Winterlong Brewing with your fellow photog friends. If you’re purchasing a workshop day pass, please be sure to attend the evening event because those seats will be reserved for you!
This year’s evening Keynotes will be delivered by Kilii Yüyan, award winning Yukon aviation photographer Dr Simon Blakesley, Whitehorse based commercial photographer Gary Bremner and more!
Note: If you can only attend the evening event, a separate evening only ticket can be purchased here: https://www.yukontickets.com/TheatreManager/1/tmEvent/tmEvent2178.html
