NEW YORK CITY - New dates
NOTE: THIS IS AN ADDITIONAL NYC WORKSHOP TO THE 2020 ONE I'VE HAD TO RE-SCHEDULE TO APRIL 2021 DUE TO COVID-19. THE DATES STILL HAVE TO BE FINALLY CONFIRMED AS THERE IS A DELAY IN GETTING A RESPONSE FROM THE HOTEL IN NYC DUE TO THE CURRENT SITUATION THERE. I WILL CONFIRM DATES ASAP.
If a place could have a chip on its shoulder, NYC’s would be huge. It’s one of the world’s most vibrant and exciting cities and its landmark locations are so familiar that you feel like you’ve known the place all your life before you even arrive. There literally is nowhere quite like it, and the photo opportunities are off the chart.
This 5-night workshop will be based in Midtown Manhattan at the Hyatt Herald Square Hotel, within walking distance of the Empire State Building, the Flatiron building, the Rockefeller Centre and other iconic locations. We’ll also make use of the city’s excellent Uber network to visit Brooklyn, Exchange Place and Liberty State Park for amazing views of the Manhattan skyline and the Brooklyn and Manhattan bridges. We’ll shoot sunset and twilight from ‘The Top of the Rock’ and The Empire State Building, we’ll walk The Highline, take the Staten Island Ferry to capture the Statue of Liberty, visit The Guggenheim Museums, the amazing Oculus Transportation Hub, The World Trade Centre, The Vessell in Hudson Yards, New York Public Library, Grand Central Terminal and more.
Each day will begin before sunrise, end after dark and be packed with inspirational photography. Technique-wise, we’ll cover architecture, low light, long exposures, abstracts, details, black & white and maybe even a bit of street photography. This isn’t a workshop where we all plonk our tripods down in a neat line and shoot exactly the same scene though. Sure, there will be times when there’s a specific shot to be taken, but New York is a place where you can also find your own vision, so that is what I’ll be encouraging you all to do!
This workshop is limited to a maximum of 6 participants. Once sufficient bookings have been taken to make the trip viable (4) I will recommend flights, though NYC is an easy city to get to with daily flights from London and regional airports. If you would like to extend your stay, I can also book extra nights at the hotel on request.
Check out my New York City portfolio for more examples of the subjects and locations we’ll shoot during this workshop.
Advice on equipment, clothing, etc will be emailed out to the group approx 2 months before departure, but if you have any queries, feel free to get in touch via the Contact page.
