photography workshops & seminars for 2013

New York workshop dates for 2013

The final full-day workshops on on-location lighting in New York, will be held on
Oct 22, 2013 (Tuesday)  -  NYC  -  4 spots still open

This workshops will  be limited to 10 people, and there will be two models available. I do want to give everyone as much individual attention, hence the limit in class size.


individual workshops & tutoring sessions

If this doesn’t suit your schedule, I do offer individual photography workshops in NJ and in NYC, as well as tutoring sessions which can be in person at my studio in NJ, or via Skype.

Hi Neil,

Hi Neil, any chance of you getting out to the West Coast in 2013? Thanks!

Comment #13 in this previous thread will explain why workshops outside of NYC is very unlikely.

Bummer… completely understand though. Guess now I have an excuse to fly to NY. Happy New Year!

Hi Neil,

Any comments on how you lit that model in this exquisite photo for this posting? It looks like sunset light hitting just her, but perhaps it is a strobe? And do you use a tripod to capture the background light that presumably likes a longer exposure, or is it underexposed?

Hi Neil,

Have you considered visiting the UK for a week or so and doing a number of workshops?

Gary, the ever-increasing cost of travel makes it unlikely.

The biggest challenge is that I travel with two cases of lighting gear for the workshop. If it was only me with a laptop, giving a seminar style lecture to a huge number of people, then it would be different.

So the economics of it all is scaled against this kind of workshop where I can only take a max of 10 people.

My wife’s aunt lives in NY and I would like to attend one of you worships their but recovering from knee surgery right now. I think after this is said and done I want to go there and attend one to reward myself. I will have to keep track of your scheduled times for them.
