I live in Brussels, Belgium and I would like to attend a photography event. Since I have to pay for a plane ticket (and hotel, and attendance fees, and entrance fees, and ...), the trip has to be "worth it".
So, my question is: which is the one photography event organized in the United States or elsewhere I must attend.
Thanks in advance.
