It’s been 3 years since the last Los Angeles workshop and I’m excited to be heading back with you! This time, instead of 2 days, we’ll be spending 3 full days exploring the best the city has to offer.

We’ll photograph LA’s best contemporary architecture, from museums and public art to the unique architecture of Culver City’s Hayden Tract.

A few days before we meet in person, we’ll come together for an online presentation with tips on composition. Once the in-person portion wraps, I’ll share a post-processing tutorial with you. You’ll have a couple of weeks to work on your images and then we’ll meet up online once again for a review session of each participant’s work.

PRESENTATION: Tuesday, February 15, 8pm CST

REVIEW SESSION: Thursday, March 3, 8pm CST

Weekend Highlights

These are just some of the locations we’ll see. A more detailed itinerary will be sent out a couple of weeks prior to us meeting in-person.

Why Attend?

  • Learn to see architecture with clear, actionable tips that you can apply during the workshop, and come home with portfolio-worthy images.
  • Learn to shoot without complicated settings or techniques so you can improve your images in a single weekend, even if you’ve never shot architecture before.
  • Learn post-processing techniques for architecture so you can save time in front of the computer.
  • Improve your entire creative process from shooting to post-processing and get your images noticed!
  • Create amazing images with on-location guidance and feedback and win competitions!
  • Learn in the best conditions without having to worry about the logistics of a big city.
  • Get inspired by world-class architecture so you can take your images to the next level.
  • Connect with like-minded people and build lasting friendships.

What You'll See ...

Gear

We’ll be walking quite a bit! Please be prepared with good shoes, water, snacks and travel light!

I recommend a mid-range zoom around the 24-70mm range + a 70-200mm telephoto (the telephoto will likely be your most used lens). If you’d like to bring an additional lens, a wide angle, 12-24mm range, may be useful in a couple of locations (most notably the Getty Center and Bradbury Building).

Each day we’ll be inside museums – THEY DO NOT ALLOW BACKPACKS (unless you’re willing to check them or they’re small and you can wear them on the front of you). So, I recommend a good crossbody bag or be willing to check your backpack at each location.

The same goes for tripods. We’ll be shooting in the evenings/blue hour on Friday and Saturday, so you’ll need to bring a tripod with you for the day. You will NOT need the tripod on Sunday.

Given all the walking and museums I highly recommend a small travel tripod. There’s a high likelihood you’ll need to check it at the museums unless you can get it inside your bag.
