Cant wait for next year!
Clickcon was the best thing that ever happened to my photography.. I learned so much in such a short period! The teachers all took the time and some even offered extra help after their class. Walking into clickcon as a starting photographer I must say the teachers were amazing but the learning didnt end there I also learned so much from the other attendees. Walking threw the hotel I witnessed so many going out of their way to help others. The entire experience an A+ and I tell everyoneI know! . I have my ticket for next year and plan to attend every year!!! The makeup artist, the hair stylist and the designers were Amazing. Im very thankful for all the work from the Clikcon team did for us last year at this conference. I can not wait to to see what surprises they have for us this year.

Can’t believe this was only the First year
This conference was so well run that you can easily forget that this was the first year. From instructors to models, everyone was on time and ready to work. The instructors were some of the best in the business. They were ready to answer any questions you threw at them. The excursions were to notch. To see everyone come together to create was awesome, even for an introvert like me. I have so many images for my portfolio. Not just images, but usable images. The knowledge I received while making the images carry over into my daily routines. I can’t wait for next year! This year as so good, I’m not sure how they are going to top it.

First Time Attendee for Photographer
ClickCon was a great experience. The Sessions were an hour long and a bit short when trying to talk about in depth topics and show examples at the same time. In 2020 they are having 90 min sessions. It was challenged to properly credit HMUA when taking model portraits and took months to get the credit for all of your photos and then to the models. I believe that will be fixed for 2020. I loved the classes outside shooting with models on the streets fo Chicago and getting portfolio work. It was also great to meet other photographers from the area to collab and work with in the future. I hope to shoot more models in 2020 and to work for other photogs after this conference.

ClickCon 2019 My Personal Review
For the first year, they did a great job. The instructors were top notch, the location was excellent, the parking was very reasonable and close. The shooting bays were very well done and staffed. The venders were there in plenty! Well done everyone, looking forward to 2020.

This was an absolutely wonderful event, so many great classes to attend, so much to see!!!
I enjoyed being a stylist and set designer for the photoshoot booths for this event, the energy was high and the responses from the photographers and venders was worth all of the hard work. Thank you Profoto and Nikon for letting me represent your booths. It was my honor. Shari Cornes at Boutique Photo Loft

I learned so much!
This was my very first photography convention I ever went to. I didn’t know what to expect, but I honestly didn’t expect a whole lot based on conversations I had with other photographers that attended other conventions. ClickCon blew my expectations away! First, the speakers and classes were absolutely wonderful. They were down to earth, and really invested in teaching us what makes them the best of the best! There were plenty of people available to help you find your next class. The showroom floor was amazing as well. We didn’t want to shoot much, but there were plenty of opportunity to shoot various looks right on the showroom floor. We met and spoke with vendors, and got to try new products. One of my favorite things during the whole convention was the photo walks at night. Chicago offers diverse backgrounds and the images I took were some of my favorites to date. We signed up to return the minute ClickCon 2020 was open for registration. We cannot wait. Another fabulous hotel in the heart of the city awaits!

Every chance I get, I ...
Since ClickCon every time I work with other photographers, videographers, models, and more I tell them about ClickCon and why they should come in 2020. Reason #1: A great place to take photos and have access to models and other professionals. #2: Great classes that will be longer in 2020! #3: Great speakers in areas you want to learn! #4: Great People to network with, collaborate with, and learn from. #5: Very good tradeshow to see and learn new and old products to change your game.
