What to Expect

For the first time ever the Peculiar Collective is bringing the family-style dynamic that it shares online to Baltimore, MD for a 2 day conference.  Enjoy community and an intimate, interactive learning environment. November 2022, our conference will consist of interactive workshops, panels, photowalks, and express talks to inspire and educate attendees in the realm of art and business. 

We are looking forward to creating an experience that inspires, teaches, and strengthens the creative not just in the arts but also in the business.  With keynotes from some of the most cutting edge photographers, and industry leaders, sessions from degreed professionals in the science of business, and creatives that have seen some of the most elaborate presentations that can assist the everyday photographer or videographer to avoid the armpit sweats...

Within the last 3 years we have grown our family from 7 to > 990.  Our goal is not only to build an audience, but we also pride ourself on strengthening peer to peer relationship



We have stretched our network across over the DMV + 22 states + 9 countries with active users and late night editing Zoom sessions


The Peculiar Collective prides itself on the family.  Its not only a learning environment but it's also a networking event.
