After Dark – St. Louis


Looking to take the next step in your photography or even looking to get your photography business off the ground and running? After Dark is the best place to start.

For 4 days straight you are immersed in the photography business and learning from 30 of the best portrait photographers across the nation. After Dark is a hands on seminar where you are up front and center with a mentor, which is one of the coolest things about it. With so many mentors to help you, you are bound to find one that shares your same style and who you can really connect with and learn from.

After Dark doesn’t just end at the end of the day when classes end. You can set up one on one meetings with the mentors, or group meetings with other attendees and mentors. It gives you a chance to ask those questions you either didn’t want to ask in a larger group setting or there just wasn’t enough time. With so many different shooting pods and business bays, the amount of information you will take away is truly amazing.

After Dark is sure to take your photography and your photography business to the next level. You will gain skills that you never thought possible.

This year After Dark will be help at Union Station in St. Louis, MO March 30th – April 2nd.
