This workshop begins on Friday, May 11 at 9:00am and ends on Sunday, May 13 at 6:00pm.

Join this workshop for a unique urban photography adventure. Experience the iconic architecture and capture the energy of New York City that most visitors never get to see. Join German photographer, author, traveler, award-winning podcaster and educator Chris Marquardt to learn to shoot with Canon's amazing Tilt-Shift Lenses.

This workshop includes special tripod access to iconic Grand Central Terminal, learning the tricks of night shooting in Times Square and exploration of locations that aren't on the average tourist map. As a special bonus, and in addition to the architecture photography, one of the workshop days will be dedicated to hand-held tilt-shift street photography.

Where We're Going:
