You will want to make sure that the company you select is a BBB Accreduted business with an A+ rating. Links for this are here.

We will be based at the very convenient, smoke-free

      Fairfield Inn & Suites at the Keys Collection
      3852 North Roosevelt Boulevard
      Key West, FL 33040-3838
      305-320-0910

Sharon Erickson, our travel agent, has negotiated a very attractive rate of $189 plus tax, bringing the rate up to $212.63. This includes our imaging space (see "IMPORTANT" below).

TripAdvisor lists prices of $329 on this hotel for this special period! Again, because our rates include our imaging area, you will need to book through Sharon (see links above under Trip Insurance and below under Travel Agent).

Rooms can go quickly, so best to not wait too long before signing up. Our special room rates are for participants only. Once we receive your application and monies due at the time of sign-up, we will let Sharon know to await your call .

If you miss out on any of the above, try TripAdvisor for other choices. Take advantage of the long weekend to return to some of your favorite workshop locations or explore others.

Airport:
The nearest major Airport is Key West International Airport (EYW), under five minutes from our hotel. Alternatives include Miami International Airport (MIA), over three hours away, or Ft. Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport (FLL), almost three-and-a-half hours distant, both from which one can reach the Keys by airport shuttle buses or rental cars.

Travel Agent:
Navigating the maze of domestic or overseas flights can be daunting, totally frustrating, and time-consuming as we all search for the best fare. We have a travel agent that we can highly recommend —Sharon Erickson at www.Cheryl-CruisePlanners.com in West End, NC. She is an American Express Travel Representative, is well traveled, and is very savvy in so much more than just cruises. She has access to resources unavailable to us mere mortals and can often find fares that are below the ones on the Internet.

With domestic fares, she does need to charge a fee, usually around $35, but for many, it is well worth it. We have found we still save money, and tons of time! Call Sharon at at 877-693-4535 (East Coast) or e-mail her as noted above. Please tell her we sent you (no, we do not get any perks from this).

Please note that in cases where we negotiate special rates with our hotels, you must either book through our travel agent, or use our links and make your reservations yourself. This information is noted for each workshop under Accommodations above.

Flying with Photo Equipment
It is always good to check with your airline before traveling to make sure you are complying with their current rules. Alas, TSA no longer has guidelines and passes consumers along to their airline of choice. Be prepared to do some deep digging.

We NEVER check our camera gear; nor do we ever check our laptops. The airlines will not cover these, and even if they did, you would be up a creek without those items. Common sense dictates that you allow plenty of extra time should TSA ask you to empty your bag and sift through each item one by one.

You may also want to select your airline based on its willingness to work with photographers...

Remember, you may have to check your bag plane-side before boarding smaller aircraft. We have done this numerous times over the decades without any problems ... knock on wood!

If you are a member of a photo association, carry your membership card. It may help you, but that is not a guarantee.

Finally, too many people bring too much gear. The less you worry about your gear, the more you will see what is around you.

Fantasy Fest is a fun, crazy time, and having a car is a liability, not a plus. We will use a local driver and public transportation to get around, so we highly recommend not succumbing to a car rental.
