The Lightchasers Chasers Conference in 2022 was an incredible experience. From access to top photographers to the spectacular location, this conference far surpassed my expectations. It was clear that Shane created the event with a love of photography and a true desire to share expert knowledge in mind. The kindness shown by Shane, the presenters, and all of those involved was refreshing and inspiring. I'm very much looking forward to what the 2023 version will bring.
