Join Angie McMonigal and Michael Muraz in Boston for an architecture photography workshop on September 9-10, 2017.
You will spend two days shooting some of the best architecture in the world and learning how to capture stunning architectural abstracts and cityscapes, including one sunset and one sunrise.
We have a great workshop planned for you…
The workshop is limited to 10 participants and the pricing is in USD.
New England Holocaust Memorial
We’ll first meet online (September 6, 9pm EST) for a presentation highlighting our vision for architecture photography so you can begin to see your subjects in a new way. We’ll share our process - from our approach once on location to how to best utilize compositional tools for architectural subjects.
This workshop is intended to focus on the creative aspects of architectural photography. While we’re there to guide you regarding gear and camera settings on location, the emphasis is on developing your unique creative vision and seeing your subjects in a new way.

The daytime locations will focus on architectural abstracts, while sunrise and sunset locations will focus on cityscapes. A more detailed itinerary will be sent out to attendees closer to the workshop.

Our meeting point every day will be the Hyatt Regency Boston, at 1 Avenue de Lafayette, Boston. If you're coming from out of town, it has good pricing for the dates of the workshop. Feel free to book your accommodation elsewhere and meet us at the Hyatt each the morning.

Here's what some attendees of our past workshops have to say:
“As I look at my photographic work over the last year, I recognize that some of my best shots have come from the days I have spent with Michael and Angie. I’ve been with them in three different cities, and each time my work has taken significant strides forward. I won’t hesitate at all to sign up for future workshops because there is one thing I’ve learned from the photographic journey is that we learn best by being around the best and Angie and Michael fit that description.” – Tim S.
"I very much enjoyed the LA workshop with Michael and Angie, it was great to explore and see my own hometown in a new way, visiting locations I had not yet discovered myself. Michael and Angie generously shared their expertise, tips, and techniques all day throughout the workshop, and were always available for questions and helping out the students get the shot they wanted. They were both fully dedicated to ensuring all the participants were happy and having a great time, and that everyone walked away with a little more skill than they started with. I look forward to attending another great workshop with them soon!" - Tom B.
