Inspire's mission is to foster & maintain a supportive community where photographers are encouraged & empowered to grow in their lives and businesses through innovative curriculum in the areas of Craft, Vision & Business.

The next Inspire retreat will be held February 26-28, 2018 at the Gurney's Resort in Newport, Rhode Island



Peer-to-peer mentoring and support is at the core of our philosophy. We believe that when photographers support each other's growth and success, we all benefit.


Opportunities for mentoring, portfolio reviews, and peer-to-peer support are built into our retreat.



We want to jump-start your vision with new techniques, new ways of thinking about what we see, and by introducing you to compelling image-makers.

If you are a photographer, a creative, an artist, a painter of light, and you’d like to be among ‘your people’ this time next year, I couldn’t recommend this retreat more.
