Las Vegas: photography workshops – March 2016

Las Vegas mini-workshop: on-location photography lighting

I will be in Las Vegas again during the WPPI convention taking place March 5-09, 2016. In previous years, I had a series of mini-workshops of my own, in and around the MGM, but this time (2016), the workshop will be a photo outing to the Red Rock Canyon National Park.

date: Sunday, March 6, 2016

The on-location-workshop will be limited to only 6 people at a time. Definitely un-crowded! I will bring a Profoto B1, and will have 3 Nikon TTL controllers and 3 Canon TTL controllers for Profoto. So you just need to bring your camera and lenses.

Fee: $400 payable by Paypal.

Date: Sunday, March 6, 2016
Duration: (excluding travel time): 4 hours

There will be a model, and I’ll provide the lighting gear.

You only need to bring:

  • Your camera. Nikon or Canon. Doesn’t matter.
  • A few lenses. A 24-70mm f/2.8 is great; 70-200mm f/2.8 is even better.

Contact me via email to book a spot, or to ask for more details.

Refund policy:
With the limited number of spots available for these mini-workshops, there is no refund.  While I have a specific cancellation policy in place for the full-day workshops with 10 people, with these mini-workshops there is no refund.

    Hey Neil!

    I own Exposure Photography here in Las Vegas and shoot at the strip all the is what you need to know. You will more than likely not be able to use anything but your cameras in any of the casinos. They don’t like soft boxes or tripods due to the liability issues. Also some casinos are snobs about copyright issues from shooting images on their property. Hiwerver, you can shoot in the fronts of the casinos to your hearts content.

    Places like Fremont street are a great place to shoot but about 50% of the time I get confronted by security when using soft boxes and lighting. The Fremont Street Experience is actually a venue…so they will sometimes gripe.

    That being said, there are plenty of other places to shoot. The arts district is great and no one will bother you. If in fact anyone bothers you, just say you are photography students. Works for me every time!

    Also, I shoot Sony, would it be beneficial for me to sign up for your workshop? I have my own triggers and ezbox.

    Either way, have a great time!

    This is a great workshop! I attended while Neil was in town for WPPI 2012, and even as a long time reader of the Tangents blog, I was able to take away a lot from the workshop.

    There were other workshops going on at the same time on The Strip, and we didn’t get hassled by security. Tourists that decided to take pictures of our model got hassled by Neil, though, with good reason.

    I live in Vegas and I shoot everywhere. I have hosted photo walks with 50 people and never been kicked out of anywhere. The places we shot were Aria, Bellagio, CityCenter, Crystals to name a few. Tripods near gaming floors is the only no no. Shoot where you want, have fun and lean how to bounce!
