What is the Horizon Photography Summit?

Photographer and workshop leader Steve Gottlieb created the Horizon Summit in 2009. His objective was to bring together outstanding professional photographers from the northeast and beyond for a big photo immersion weekend dedicated to those who are passionate about photography. This year is the sixth Summit, and the first in the lovely university town of Newark, DE.

What level of experience should I have to attend?

A person at any level will benefit from attending the Horizon Summit.

Can children attend?

Yes, if they are sixteen or older. (Children fourteen and older can attend if accompanied by an adult.)

When do I choose my classes?

Your Summit Registration admits you to all classes (presentations) and the keynote address. You can decide which classes you wish to attend when you come. Each class is on a first-come, first-serve basis, but there is rarely a problem finding seating in any class. Appointments for Portfolio Reviews should be made when registering. Additional fees apply.

Can I give someone a gift of the Horizon Summit?

Yes. You can either register for them. (If you register in someone else's name and don't want them to know, use your own email address when registering them.)

Can classes be cancelled?

Individual classes may be cancelled in unusual circumstances. Multiple classes are held during each session so you will always have a choice of classes for each class period.

Can I sign up for more than one portfolio review?

You can sign up for as many reviews you like with whichever instructor(s) you choose. Time availability is extremely limited and listed on the registration page. First come, first served.

If I register but cannot attend, what is your refund policy?

If you contact us via email no later than Oct. 15, 2018, you will be refunded 75% of all fees paid. After that, no fees are refunded.

Should I bring my laptop?

Laptops are required for the "Basic Printing Workshop" on Friday, but will not be neccasary for any other Summit activities, unless you want to use your laptop for a portfolio review.

What clothing should I wear?

Casual clothes, suitable for the season.

Where is lunch eaten? Are vegetarians accommodated? What about dinner?

You can register for lunch, will be catered and eaten at the Embassy Suites (the Summit venue). Vegetarian food will be available. There are many restaurants in the area if you choose to eat lunch off-site, as well as for dinner.
