Digital Mastery Photography Workshop

Digital Mastery Photography Workshop


Learn the skills to take your photography to the next level with a two-day intensive workshop and photo tours throughout New York City


You're a beginner to intermediate photographer. You've read tons of books, listened to a thousand hours of instructive videos and bought online courses on photography.

What's next? What can you do to get to the next level?

We created photography lessons around all the essential skills that you need to take your photography to the next level and teach them during a series of photo walks throughout the city. 

 

TWO SEPARATE LEARNING TRACKS THAT FOCUS ON SPECIFIC PHOTOGRAPHY SKILLS

 

Saturday - Low light & night photography track

(Includes lessons on interior architecture photography, travel photography, & night cityscape photography)

$179

 

Sunday - Landscape and cityscape photography track

(Includes lessons in landscape photography, architectural photography, & street photography)

$179

 

Full workshop - Saturday & Sunday

YOU WILL BE ABLE TO

  • Shoot in the popular photography genres — landscape, architecture, nature, street, night, cityscapes — and produce great images consistently.
  • Travel to any landscape or cityscape, identify the best photo opportunities and create beautiful images.
  • Choose landscapes and create more than just a pretty picture. Take landscape images that are memorable.
  • Create iconic images of city architecture and skylines.
  • Tell the history and architectural styles of iconic Manhattan.
  • Create dramatic photographs of night scenes, especially those with lots of lights.
  • Take sharp and stunning photographs in low light situations where a tripod can't be used.
  • Photograph storytelling images of strangers in street environments. Quickly put strangers at ease, so you can capture real life as it unfolds.
 

WHO IS THIS FOR

  • You see a great shot in your head, but when you take the picture, it never looks the same.
  • You take 100 shots and get a few good ones, but it is mostly by chance. You'd like to be more deliberate about making great pictures.
  • Your pictures are too dark or too bright, but you aren't sure why.
  • People tell you that you have a good eye for photography. You think you do okay, but would love to get better.
  • You have been teaching yourself online and getting decent results. You know you can get much better with some expert help.
  • You just retired and are ready to get serious about your photography.
