Join Chris and Alan for a unique Urban Photography adventure. We love New York and we know the City inside/out! Experience the essence and energy of New York City life that most visitors never get to see. Learn and explore this fascinating city with German photographer, traveler, award-winning podcaster and teacher Chris Marquardt and Princeton Photo Workshop's HDR photographer and teacher Alan Kesselhaut. During this tour, we will have special access to shoot in iconic Grand Central Terminal with tripods, capture Central Park's dynamic action and street life in the East Village, and learn the tricks of night shooting in Times Square.
Get to know the instructors and fellow students at a funky and fun downtown bar/ restaurant with an off-the-beaten-path NYC vibe.
We'll begin the day with a discussion of the theory of everything photographic, learning and practicing in and around Grand Central Terminal. In the afternoon, we will seek out Central Park's talented, dynamic street performers, the Apple Store and whatever comes our way in this classic New York venue. After dinner, we will learn about night shooting and capture the lights and activity of Times Square after dark.
Our day will start in a classroom on one of the most interesting streets in the East Village, populated by storied off-off Broadway theaters. We will spend a couple of hours critiquing our images, reviewing what we have learned so far and preparing for our afternoon shoot among the tenements, artists and characters in the East Village.
