Photograph the Manhattan skyline at blue hour May 31-June 3, 2018

Join me to photograph New York City at night! I’ve got one space left to join me in New York City May 31-June 3rd for a special twilight/night photography urban photo safari in New York City. This unique event is limited to six (6) photography enthusiasts who want to experience Manhattan in the magical evening hours. I’ve deliberately kept the group size small so that I can provide you with individual attention and so that you can focus on your personal growth as a photographer.

We will head out each afternoon on a  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 photographs you will be proud to share. Every morning, we will have group image review sessions and I will provide “ask me anything” sessions on workflow and post-processing. Group lodging in New York City is available (not included in workshop fee).

Topics Include
  • Long exposures
  • Blue hour & twilight
  • Cityscapes and architecture
  • Creative post-processing
Locations include, but not limited to
  • Brooklyn Bridge/DUMBO/Manhattan Skyline
  • Times Square/Rockefeller Center
  • World Trade Center Memorial & lower Manhattan

For 2018, I’ve listened to your feedback and I’m taking smaller groups (6-8) for a more personalized experience. I’m also offering more birding safaris, as it’s something many people have been asking about. I’m also offering photo tours, including another photo cruise to Alaska!

My philosophy is simple:  photography is a craft. I believe you learn the most when you immerse yourself in the complete workflow of photography (visualization/capture/processing) for more than just a morning or afternoon.

On my tours and safaris, we focus on more than just taking pictures. It’s about the experience itself. I hope you’ll find the time to join me in the field soon!
