The street art scene in New York has changed since the 60's. The subway is not anymore a great place for graffitis and Soho is no more the Mecca of the painted walls. Still, New York is a legendary place full of painted life. Brooklyn is the main place to be when you like the extravagances of the street artists, and there is many places around Manhattan, where your can find, around some corners, some great works.
With some hidden treasures and world famous places where the street art is blooming, the purpose of this workshop is to make yours the paintings by making a compromise between the artists and your own style.
This workshop is a handmade
product. Please, before any kind of bank transfer (if you think
already about it, thank you, ladies and gentlemen), send me your
dates, to know the schedules available. Use as well the form below
for any informations you need.
The workshop starts on each sunday (day of arrival in NYC) of September, October and November 2012 (for a further date, please let me know).
The places are very limited, so book quickly
This schedule is just an idea for how the days are
Notice that if everyone wants to add something else, it will be done. I'm not here to subjugate you in rigid rails. We will start daily with a meeting about the walk of the day, about the visited neighborhoods, about the focus on 2-3 main buildings to be gone into more deeply. We will also discuss the choice of the lenses and the possible approaches of the subjects.
The afternoons will be lighter, with a short walk around some interesting landmarks, then you will have some spare time, for you to discover some personal subjects of interests or simply to play tourists.
It's a four seats Robinson R44, with only two photographers at the
same time (both left side for no blind spots). The doors are
removed to enhance the quality of the shooting. We will speak with
the pilot to determine the flight plan to follow.
The flight is subject to re-schedule according to the weather and authorizations (impossible when the US President is in town for example).
I don't include here the first and last days, the arrival one usually being used for reassembling, resting and working together on the program, while the departure day is generally devoted to shopping and souvenirs.
