“It has been 3-jam packed days of talks, photography, hugs, hand-pounds, speeches, portraits and above all personal introductions to people who you only knew online. I think some of my favorite moments was spent over a meal, coffee, in the car and in between sessions at #thephotocookout. It was great getting to meet people and build true relationships with them. I am so thankful for this incredible opportunity.“

– Tim Riddick

“The Cookout is lit. This nourishment is more than any of us expected. If you’re not planning on going next year, you’re crazy. All these speakers are pouring their hearts into this and I know next year will be even better. I hope y’alls eyes are peeled because I know it will sell out fast.”
