About

The Canada Photo Convention is an exceptional event for professional development among wedding and portrait photographers. With multi-award-winning speakers to inspire and teach you, this conference is not to be missed.

Beyond the full days of classes included in your registration, CPC is a retreat for photographers with a high focus on socialization, networking, and friendship building. During the Canada Photo Convention, modern photographers worldwide meet, learn, and build friendships in a fun atmosphere.

CPC first started in Vancouver in 2012. Since then, it’s since grown into an internationally-recognized community. CPC conferences are much like their founder, Jasser Abu-Giemi: Ambitious, down to earth, friendly, happy to help, and always full of surprises.

Included with a full conference pass is:

  • Access to every presentation during the whole event
  • Wi-Fi, lunch, coffee, and refreshments each day
  • Seminars from 09:30 am to 9:30pm
  • Opportunities to network and build friendships with international photography professionals
  • Access to our (in)famous after party

Who comes to CPC?

CPC draws a crowd of photographers from all over the globe who are committed to learning more about the business of photography. Some are just starting in the business and some are seasoned professionals.

Regardless of your experience level, at CPC you’ll experience the excitement of being part of a community of photographers that are dedicated to becoming better artists and entrepreneurs.

Are meals/lodging included?

Lodging is not included with the ticket price however several people are looking to split rooms to share costs.  Please email Jasser at info@canadaphotoconvention.com to learn more about the venues.

The venue for the Vancouver CPC will be the Hyatt Regency Downtown.
Are Tickets refundable?

All tickets to live events are non-refundable however you can transfer your ticket to another photographer within 30 days of purchasing.

What about wifi?

Jasser believes that above all else, wifi is a basic human need so he doesn’t book any CPC events at any venues that don’t have available wifi.

What should I bring?

Something to take notes would be a good start.  A lot of people bring tablets, laptops or even just a pen and paper.  Bring your business cards so you can keep in touch with other photographers.  Photo ID would be good to bring for the party and also to check in at the front desk.  You likely won’t need to bring your camera kit with you as most of the seminars are classroom learning.
