photography workshops for 2015

The group photography workshops are full-day events – and are a mixture of seminar presentation and practical shooting. The workshops will be held at my studio space in NJ. There is free parking, and it is easily reached from the main highways in the area. There is also regular bus transport from NYC. (We can fetch you from the bus terminal.)

The fee for the full-day workshop is $600 and the workshop is from 9am to 8pm. Lunch and refreshments are included!

The workshops are now limited to 6 people – and working within my own studio with more equipment readily at hand, gave the workshop a relaxed tempo. The material is always streamlined a little bit more, from workshop to workshop.

More info about the photography workshops.

The three workshops for 2015 will take place on:

  • May 17, 2015  (Sunday)
  • July 19, 2015  (Sunday)
  • Sept 20, 2015  (Sunday)

Book a spot at one of the workshops.  Each class will be limited to 6 people.

If you would like an individual workshop, or a personal tutoring session, those are available as well throughout the year, depending on both of our schedules. The studio is only 17 miles from Manhattan. Just a short hop from New York and quite accessible by bus. Oh, and there’s parking at the studio. Free parking.

If you are limited in how far you can travel, there are Skype sessions and also video tutorials to help you get a much better understanding of photography and lighting techniques.

Would love to attend a workshop of yours in So. Cal. There are a bunch of us here in the Los Angeles/Orange County area who are dying to learn from the master of off-camera flash. Please come join us soon….

Stephen, as much as I would like to, the logistics make it a financial gamble, whether I’d get enough people to sign up for any workshop where I travel. Even New York.

Specifically regarding California, check my comment #13 there.

why not make people pay in advance?

You missed this part:

If you consider the starting point for me in announcing a workshop .. it is a gamble every time whether I will have enough people attend to make it worth it. At some point I have to commit to going ahead with a workshop (or series of workshops), and book hotels and venues and flights .. even before I have reached the break-even point.

Damn, that’s us folks across the pond out of luck then….

Oh, go on … New York beckons you.

Neil, sorry to hear about what happened last time in So. Cal. I understand your risk. I guess I will continue to learn here in the blogs and thru your excellent books.
Continued success to you.

I lived in Southern California for 8 years and “flaky” people were the norm. If people in New York City or San Francisco say they will attend the seminar then they will attend. However, SoCal is a different animal.

I am since my debut photo, you are one of my greatest sources of inspiration. I have really enjoyed participating in this workshop, but I live in Paris so it’ll be a little hard for me. good luck

Neil, I just found your remaining workshop date – I’m booked:( Will you be offering 2015 dates at your studio? I have been a big fan for many years (but apparently not a very good blog reader;). Would love to learn from you in person some day. Thanks!
