An international conference for wedding photographers

April 16-17, 2024 - Crete, Greece

BY FEARLESS PHOTOGRAPHERS & MASTERS OF WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY

Get inspired

We’ve selected amazing speakers from around the world to bring you nothing but the best. 

MEET FRIENDS

Make new and meet old photography friends in real life from all over the world. 

Take a break

The Greek islands are the perfect place to take a break and get geared up for the new wedding season

The Fearless Masters conference is about so much more than hearing and learning from the speakers. It’s the shared experience of being at such an amazing event with the world’s best wedding photographers. Chatting over dinner, going out for drinks with them. Just hanging out with them. I can call many of them friends. Even though we see some of them only once a year, there is an unbreakable bond between us all. We don’t stand around talking about photography techniques, we just enjoy sharing life together when we meet.

I was a little hesitant to go to a conference where I wouldn't know anyone, all by myself. But everyone was so welcoming and kind, I had a really great time. On top of that, the talks were really interesting and inspiring, with great variety! You can probably imagine I don't want to miss any of those awesome conferences anymore!
