The Promoting Passion Convention focuses on how storytelling, giving back to the community, and innovation can serve not only to build a career that is worthwhile, but also a life worth living. This conference is based around photography yet deals with larger ideas that make the human experience so unique, like fear, inspiration, and adventure. The conference will run 3 days and consist of 90-minute lectures, 3-hour hands-on workshops, and 1-hour panel discussions. Promoting Passion Convention 639 Whispering Hills Rd.
