The main event takes place March 7 and 8, and will be streamed live on the B&H Presents: Depth of Field web page.

About the Show
This is the fourth installment of B&H’s Depth of Field Conference. The original campaign was held in 2018, and in three short years, DOF has already become the must-attend event for portrait, wedding, and event photographers. This year, not only are we going completely virtual, but we’re also stretching the show out from a two-day event into a month-long spectacle featuring a ton of awesome activities, including our super-informative webinar series on building your photography business and skill set.
Following the lead-up program, the DOF main event will play out over the course of two days. During the event, virtual attendees will gain insight and motivation from industry-leading professionals, participate in exclusive online workshops and Q&As, and so much more.
This year’s keynote speaker will be world-renowned photographer Mark Seliger. Joining Seliger is an incredible roster of top industry pros and brand ambassadors. Each speaker will deliver a virtual presentation on topics in their fields of expertise. Whether you’re looking for real-world tips on craft or building up your business, or you just want some inspiration—there’s a presentation for you.
In addition to the presentations, DOF offers a ton of interactive experiences and opportunities. For those looking to gain some critical insight into their work, we’re including Image and Business Critique sessions with legendary photographer Jerry Ghionis. The exciting opportunities don’t stop there. Along with professional critiques, this year’s event also includes the return of the popular Depth of Field Challenge and an exclusive show catalog with tons of great promotions, among many other valuable perks.
