Manhattan, it is an island like no where else in the world. From its sprawling avenues to its tiny back streets, the city is a photographers playground. It is the proving ground that shaped people like film maker Martin Scorsese to artists like Edward Hopper and photographers like Saul Leiter. It is a magical place.
For the first time in two years, I am very pleased to announce a New York City photography workshop this June. Taught in conjunction with Dehli-based photographer Vineet Vohra (read more about him below) we will offer a small group of photographers the chance to look at New York City from an insider’s and outsider’s point of view.
What will you learn that you could not find on your own:
• The “A to Z of Street Photography”: Based in Dehli, India Vineet knows a thing or two about working in a busy city. Using his blend of graphic simplicity and controlled chaos, with Vineet you will learn the language of street photography and how to move beyond capturing moments and create pictures with lasting power.
• The “Capturing Atmosphere: How to bring the invisible to life.” How do you capture the “feeling of New York?” It is a gritty place, where everyone rushes about, but between the madness hides rough beauty. The city continues to inspire generations of photographers all searching for that secret something that makes New York unique. After two decades of living in the city, I’d like to share some of its secrets with you.
Born in Delhi/India Vineet completed a degree in applied arts (design & advertising). Then using his design background he started in photography. His career started with wild life, then fashion photography before eventually arriving at street photography. He enjoys the spontaneity and the unexpected with no control on light made me take up this challenge.
Vineet is also a Leica brand Ambassador and Leica mentor at Leica Akademie. With his brother Rohit he co-founded APF Magazine (Art Photo Feature) in 2013.
Workshop enrollment covers all workshop activities, location shooting fees, model fees, intercity transportation, a summary of workshop material/resources, and use of workshop meeting spaces.
Transportation, food, and lodging are at the discretion of the photographer. They are not included in the workshop cost, but if you need help with hotel suggestions please email us.
If this is your first A/Marelli Workshop, you may have some questions or concerns. This is why I offer a complimentary 30-minute private call with each first time workshop participant. After you register for the workshop, we’ll get in touch with you to set up your session via Skype.
This workshop will be handled as a one time payment. There is no deposit required.
If you need to cancel or postpone enrollment in a workshop, you may transfer the deposit to another available workshop (2 day workshop or equivalent value in the One on One Program) anytime within the next calendar year. For example, if you’re enrolled for a 2017 May workshop and are unable to attend, you could apply it any other workshop up to the end of May 2018.
If you need to cancel inside of 90 days from the workshop commencement, there is no refund, but you can transfer the entire amount to a later workshop up to one calendar year from the original workshop start date.
