A CREATIVE FAMILY
BUILDING SKILLS AND 
VALUES

In the Peculiar Collective we have amassed over 1,500 members from across the world looking to polish their skills while assisting in supporting and polishing others

To assist with our mission and our communities, we have partnered with two key entities--Towson University, one of the Top 3 colleges in the State of Maryland, and our neighborhood camera store, Service Photo, which is one of the top camera store across Maryland, Delaware, Washington, DC, and Virginia

First of all, we want to welcome you to our Peculiar Collective page. We have somehow amassed a family from all over the country...as a matter of fact--from all over the world to collectively bring our gifts together to not only share our journeys, but also collaborate on ideas to grow our individual businesses. 

Every year we learn something different, and for 2024, we learned that we didn't just need a place for the black photographer, but we needed a place for ALL creatives.  Whether black, brown, or white, no matter your background --we welcome you with open arms to join us for our creative events and our biggest conference yet is happening on November 8-9, 2024!

Watch our conference video displaying the multiple facets of learning and networking within two days.  From hours of demos with Lindsay Adler, to the details within each piece of the art of Sophia Barrett on theatre screens across auditoriums--attendees were able to not only learn but comfortably be them while learning. 

In 2023, we doubled attendance while maintaining a professional informal learning environment.  We provided attendees an experience from lectures, semi-interactive sessions, and our traditional photowalk mall that included models styled from head to toe on multi-color backdrops.
