    The Develop Collective will now be offering live Image Critique classes!  This is a great way to improve your skills whether or not you plan on entering print competition.  There can be small subtle things you learn that can take your image to the next level and give it that WOW factor.

    Join us for Develop 2021

    Develop is our annual educational conference that has taken place since 1940 (with the exception of one year for war, as stated in our history). It has had different names over the years but has always had the same goal: to educate, encourage, and honor Missouri photographers. This year it takes place at the Stoney Creek Hotel & Conference Center in Independence, Missouri.
