Breakout Sessions

More Information About the 2023 Conference is Coming Late 2022 / Early 2023.

Check Back Soon!

Lightchasers is proud to work with some of the top brands in photography and will be featuring multiple Breakout Sessions with our partners.

These sessions allow attendees to get hands on with the products and services they offer. Whether it's in-the-field with Fujifilm, a morning chat and cappuccino with ArtFulfill, or sessions with Kase, McBain, Nikon, and The Camera Store, these sessions will introduce you to new products and concepts that are sure change the way you approach your photography in positive new ways.



Lightchasers is incredibly proud to have Fujifilm on board as our Title Sponsor. Fujifilm has been an industry innovator for over 80 years and continues to break new ground with their GFX camera systems. Fujifilm will be bringing a selection of GFX gear available for sign-out throughout the weekend and will be hosting multiple group shooting sessions!

These sessions take place at some of the most gorgeous locations within 30 mins of Pincher Creek and are open to anyone, whether you're shooting with or trying out Fujifilm's cameras for the weekend! Fujifilm's team will be bringing coffee and donuts and there's a good chance some of our presenters will be present at these sessions as well!

Fujifilm's group sessions are limited to 50 people and advance sign up is required, either by sending us an email or at the conference. See our schedule for more info!

I found the conference to be unique in that there were diverse landscape genre presenters supported by a number of appropriate companies with their products. Less a workshop and more facilitation.
