Why The Bahamas? Fstoppers wanted to make the workshops intimate, and accessible to all without distractions of thousands of attendees. We also wanted to you bring your family to an awesome beach setting. The classes will be limited to small groups and will very much be interactive and engaging with the instructor. Plus flights to the Bahamas and hotel rooms are very reasonable and in many cases cheaper than staying in New York, Chicago, or Las Vegas. Plus we will be on an exotic island.
