UPDATED: New York City Street Photography Workshop – October 25th, 2012 during the PhotoPlus Expo

UPDATE: This is almost sold out, please let me know if you are interested in the last remaining spots!

Ron Martinsen heads to the big apple to do a street photography workshop in the heart of Times Square that you’ll never forget! Learn how to approach strangers and get flattering shots on the fly like this one:

Learn how to quickly respond to unpredictable surprises and get the shot like I did when my assistant pointed out that Elmo was on his Elmo cell phone and we got this shot:

Have fun experimenting with your fisheye lens to see New York in a whole new way like I did here:

We’ll do this and much more on this unforgettable evening tour New York’s Times Square. I will also have at least one assistant on hand to make sure you have the light you need to get the shot (Nikon shooters will need to bring Pocket Wizards or equivalent).


This event will take place on the evening of October 25th, 2012. While you are in town you can do like me and go see the PDN Photo Plus Expo where all of the latest photography goodies are on display (see my report from last year) and you can rub shoulders with the who’s who of photography and see some of the biggest products announcements of the year (like the Canon 1D X and Nikon 1 last year)!

This workshop will be 4 hours in duration and will be in the form of a photo walk around Times Square. I’ll be teaching you how to see the city differently and how to get interesting shots of people, places and things in a crowded and busy environment. I’ll help you approach strangers to get their photo and teach you how to avoid the common pitfalls of travel and street photography.

This class will take place rain or shine as the primary objective is to learn how to make great shots in any conditions. Dress and plan according to the weather!

The cost for this workshop will be $150 and space will be limited to keep the group size small. If you are interested attending, then order now and send mail to to reserve your spot today. You will be responsible for your own transportation to and from the workshop and for having all of your own equipment. The course registration is for instruction only.

More details will only be provided to those who sign up for this workshop, and the class may be enhanced to better meet the needs of the attendees.
