Ksenia Verdiyan Future of Photography Testimonial

"The Future of Photography event was absolutely amazing. 3XM exceeded my wildest expectations. I got to meet my idol photographers, see my favorite products, and brainstorm where the industry is heading. I walked away with my brain on fire and ready to implement some new ideas into my business. The 3XM team was so warm and welcoming. We all felt like part of the family. And did I mention we got to stay and eat at some of the best places around Dublin? There was also a castle with some Irish redhead models, rustic pubs and Irish dancing. This trip was truly the highlight of my year. "

Jamies Hayes and Mark Fisk Future of Photography Testimonial

"Jamie and I had the great fortune of attending the 2018 Future of Photography Event and WOW! We knew that we love 3XM and their incredible products and we knew that Ronan and Susan were awesome people but we had no idea how fantastic this event would be. The chance to network and chat with so many other successful photographers was a huge benefit but the meetings and presentations were absolutely phenomenal. We were forced outside of our comfort zones at times, asked questions that we had never even thought of and learned so much from the 3XM team. It was a highlight of our year and we could not recommend this experience enough. If you want to be more successful and learn from some of the best do not miss this event. "

Wendy De Craemer Future of Photography Testimonial

"A great event, packed with so much knowledge and great speakers, offering a unique balance between meaningful content, market research, creative inspiration and a line of gorgeous luxurious products to offer our clients. 3XM gave us a platform to initiate collaboration with an inspirational group of photographers with diverse expertise and helped us to push our boundaries as creative entrepreneurs when brainstorming ideas for new concepts, set new and bigger business goals and helped us develop a plan in how to implement these master-mind ideas into our every day business in new and creative ways. In short: The 3XM Future of Photography events will offer you a compact but diverse source of inspiration and will allow you to talk to many different people as well as establish an inspirational network of like minded souls. The 3XM Future of Photography event provide an excellent opportunity to help strengthen partnerships with creative entrepreneurs from all corners of this beautiful globe. It is an energetic and engaging event - with a mix of just the right kind of busy & crazy (creativity). "
