The FOMO Factory Photography Experience

FOMO Factory
Photography Experience

JANUARY 12 & 13, 2019 | $99

It’s time to shake off your adult cooties and be reborn into childhood with Precision Camera, Fujifilm and the magic of The FOMO Factory.

Haven’t heard of it? Well, this two-story interactive pop-up shop in downtown Austin celebrates the magic of childhood we often lose as adults, and what it is to feel wonder, awe, and silliness. Using the emerging medium of immersive art, The FOMO Factory envelopes all five senses and invites attendees to shamelessly snap selfies and play like a kid.

Portfolio to Profile – Have Fun!

Our idea is simple – use this wonderful space to photograph each other, meet new friends and leave with amazing photos for our portfolio as well as our profile! We’ll work in small groups for the entire workshop and you’re sure to leave with fantastic new images – of you and your friends. So, don’t be shy and get a friend to signup with you!

Free Instax and loaner X-Series Gear

Fujifilm will be along the entire way lending out cameras and lenses from across their X-Series lineup along with loaning a Fujifilm Instax camera with a fresh pack of instant film to EACH participant for FREE.

This is a two-day workshop.

At the Factory, we will break into our groups, each start in a different space and all move throughout the building shooting and being children. We will have some models on hand, but the idea is to photograph each other and leave with amazing photos for your portfolio as well as your profile!
