Earlier this year, we had the pleasure of speaking at the inaugural Photo Native, a local photography workshop + conference by Jessie Evans of Jessie Alexis Photography and Sam Kelly of Samantha Kelly Photo. The ladies are bringing the event back in January 2017, and they have big new plans for Photo Native part deux.

"We're taking all the things everyone loved about Photo Native 2016 and enhancing the experience with more class options, more shoot options, and more networking opportunities," says Evans. "One new thing to note that we're really excited about is a full day of styled Native Shoots on Thursday, January 26, followed by intimate dinners that evening prior to the official kick-off of Photo Native on Friday, January 27. We're also excited about our group of more than 30 instructors, largely from Utah but with a handful of out-of-state instructors, too. We've also relocated to a new venue more suited to accommodate a large group of attendees."

In short, all good things. You can read more about Photo Native 2017, including details about the Native Shoots and dinners, here.
