RichardHulbert_175.jpg

The Urban and Street Photography workshop is sold out for San Francisco but we have two remaining spots available for Dallas, Texas (Feb 20-23).

This workshop series led by Richard Hulbert is designed to improve your photography regardless of whether you consider picture taking a hobby, or you are a serious enthusiast, or a professional photographer, or earn your living as a member of the global real estate, design, and construction industries.

There are rules for photographing buildings and other man-made structures, and knowing these rules will make you a better photographer. Mastering these rules will allow you to learn how “break” them in a deliberate, meaningful way.

You will learn how a basic understanding of street photography will assist in your architectural and urban photography. You will discover how the fundamental principles of travel photography will enhance your architectural and urban imaging.

Richard will also bring this series to Berlin, Germany and Cambridge, UK. The Berlin workshop (starting March 20) is down to its final two seats remaining and we still have a few available seats for the Cambridge, UK workshop (starting March 27).

Yosemite - Yosemite in Winter: A season of Contrast - Few seats remaining

Mariant-175.jpg

This workshop led by Michael A. Mariant will focus on the numerous locations in the Yosemite Valley that are complemented by the snow season as well as timed for one of the few rare scenes in Yosemite that happens only once a year for about 10 days in only the perfect conditions: the backlit illumination of Horsetail Fall by the setting sun, called 'The Firefall' as immortalized by the original 1973 Galen Rowell photo.

All three sunset opportunities of the workshop will devoted to capturing this elusive visual phenomenon. The 4-day workshop begins February 20th.

This workshop focuses not only on the "where" to take the pictures, but also on the "how" to take pictures, incorporating photographic education throughout the workshop at each location.

By building on the previous location's techniques and lessons, this allows for culmination in a comprehensive lesson in pre-visualization, composition, modified exposure and light controls.
