Toronto workshop

It’s been 4 years since the last Toronto workshop, time to revisit!

Spend 3 days exploring the best the city has to offer – interiors & exteriors, skyscrapers, sculptures, and much in between. The focus will be on creating detailed and abstract interpretations of the city’s built environment.

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, September 26, 8pm CT

REVIEW SESSION: Thursday, October 12, 8pm CT

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.
  • Get individualized attention in this small group format; workshop is limited to 10 participants.
  • 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 A LOT (3-4 miles per day)! Please be prepared with good shoes, water, snacks and travel light!

Saturday and Sunday we will 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, which is what I’d recommend).

I recommend a mid-range zoom around the 24-70mm range + a 70-200mm telephoto (the telephoto will be 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.

Tripods are not necessary, and I’d encourage you to leave them at home. Interior locations won’t allow them and we’ll be shooting during daylight hours for exteriors.
