New York City Night Photography Workshop with Jason Odell
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

As your leader, I’ll be working with each participant to help you discover new creative approaches to travel photography. I’ve arranged for a flexible itinerary that allows us to have a casual approach and maximize our photo time so that we get photographs, not snapshots.
