Photography Workshops – NJ / NYC
If you need instruction or help with your photography, I present photography workshops –
most often on topics relating to flash photography and photographic lighting.
Recap of previous photography workshops, with more feedback from attendees.
Also, here are the kind of results you can expect to achieve yourself! It’s well within your reach.
The flash photography workshops are full-day events, held at my studio space in NJ. Each workshop is limited to 6 people only. This way I can make sure of individual attention with each photographer, and allow everyone enough time to work with the models.
The workshop program is intended to give you confidence in using your speedlight. My approach is to teach other photographers how to achieve what they want to. What we are aiming for, are those “aaaah, NOW I get it!” moments. Any aspects of flash photography that had been elusive up until then – whether it is a technique or bit of theory – should fall into place.
I can accommodate multiple systems – Nikon, Canon and Sony. If you have another system or setup, contact me, and we can see how we can make this work.
The flash photography workshops for 2017 will take place on:
- May 28, 2017 (Sunday) – NJ
- Sept 24, 2017 (Sunday) – NJ
With the Photo Walks in New York we will roam around for a few hours on location with a model. It will be a small group of only 4 photographers. I will bring the lighting gear. You bring a camera and a lens or two, and we’ll have fun!
- June 04, 2017 (Sunday) (4-6pm) – Columbus Circle
- July 30, 2017 (Sunday) (4-6pm) – Meatpacking District
- October 29, 2017 (Sunday) (4-6pm) – Brooklyn Waterfront
If you’ve been curious about getting to know more about studio lighting for portraits, but it all seems too daunting or technical, then this studio lighting workshop is for you. This workshop program is aimed at being is a learning experience where you get to use studio lights and light modifiers, and setting these up for portrait photography.
- April 23, 2017 (Sunday) – NJ
- Dec 03, 2017 (Sunday) – NJ
If you’d prefer to have an individual workshop, including models, I also offer individual photography workshops. These are either held in Manhattan or New Jersey, depending on your schedule and logistics. These are ideal if you’d rather not work in a group, or if you are in the NJ/NY vicinity for a short time only.
I also offer personal tutoring sessions. These are usually done in person at my studio in New Jersey. These tutoring sessions are tailored specifically for you, depending on what area you need help with.We get to sit and chat and go over problem areas in your photography. If you want, we can add a model for part of this tutoring session.
If you need help with some problem you’re having in photography or want to do a portfolio review, but you live further away than NJ / NYC, then we could always do the tutoring session via video chat on Skype.
If you’re keen on attending a photography workshop, but time and distance limit you, these online video tutorials might just be the thing. Not quite hands-on, but there is something about seeing something explained that might help you when words on a page don’t quite suffice.
Please feel free to e-mail me or phone me at 862-485-7276, for more information about the workshops.
If you’d like to be updated about upcoming workshops (and other snippets of news and info), then there is the monthly newsletter that you can subscribe to.
