New York City Night Photography Workshop May 31-June 3, 2018
I’m excited to announce an urban night photography workshop in New York City! Space on this tour is strictly limited to six (6) participants.
Each day, will start with an afternoon photowalk to explore the city and then finish at an iconic site for sunset, twilght, and night photography. I will teach you creative techniques in the field for capturing unique fine-art photographs. Every morning, we will have group image review sessions and I will provide “ask me anything” sessions on workflow and post-processing. You will have lots of free time during the middle of the day to explore Manhattan on your own, too!

Join me September 22-25 for an urban-themed location workshop in Denver, Colorado. On this tour, we’ll explore the Colorado capitol with an emphasis on art and architecture. The late September weather in Denver is perfect for evening/twilight shooting, too.
I have arranged for discounted lodging in downtown Denver within walking distance of most of our locations, including:
Colorado Capitol & Courthouse Buildings
Denver Art Museum
Union Station & 16th Street Promenade
RINO Art District (street art near Coors Field)
Denver Botanical Gardens
Denver City Park
If you’re looking to experience urban creativity with your camera, then this is a great photo safari for you. We will learn long exposures, blue hour shooting, multiple exposures, texture blending, and more in the Mile High City.
Instructor: Jason Odell
Limit: 10 Photographers RSVP HERE by August 22nd for discounted lodging at the group hotel
Night photography is fun. Night photography is also hard. To photograph the Milky Way, you need to be somewhere dark. In the summer, when the nights are warm, it often isn’t truly dark until after 10pm. That means this time of year is perfect, as the nights are just starting to get longer but temperatures are still fairly warm. You also want to make sure there is no moon to spoil the starlight. I use The Photographer’s Ephemeris to determine when astronomical twilight ends (this is when it gets very dark), and for moon information.
Last weekend, everything came together. I took a nice drive with my friend to Limon, CO, where I’ve shot the wind farm in the past. I’d pre-visualized this shot for over a year; I just finally got around to doing it.
Join me for a photo workshop at Carhenge, USA September 27-28th. We’ll photograph this quirky location (voted #3 quirky destination by USA Today) at sunset, and then after twilight we’ll move on to light-painting and astrophotography (star-trails and Milky Way). We’ll return the next morning for sunrise between the “stones,” followed by a special side trip to a tractor graveyard nearby. I’ve arranged special access to these locations, and the workshop is limited to eight (8) photographers! Hope to see you there! Click here for full details and to RSVP.
