About the Event

Join Angie McMonigal and Michael Muraz in Toronto for an architecture photography workshop on May 26-28, 2017.

You’ll spend two and a half days shooting some of the best architecture in the world and learning how to capture stunning architectural abstracts and cityscapes, including two sunsets and one sunrise.

We have a great workshop planned for you…

(Please note pricing is in USD)

Allen Lambert Galleria


We’ll first meet online (Tuesday, May 23, 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, how to best utilize compositional tools for architectural subjects to working in series.

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. 

Riverdale Park


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

FRIDAY (5:30pm-9:30pm)

We’ll begin with dinner and a little Q&A related to the online presentation. Then head out for our first cityscape locations:

  • Bathurst Bridge 
  • Puente de Luz

SATURDAY (9:00am-9:30pm)

We’ll begin with some architecture locations in downtown Toronto:

  • City Hall


We’ll break for lunch together followed by more architectural locations:

  • Ryerson University
  • Art Gallery of Ontario

We’ll take a short break then meet back up for dinner before our next cityscape location for sunset/blue hour:

We’ll begin with a sunrise cityscape location:

  • Riverdale Park

We’ll have lunch together ending with a few more architecture locations:

Toronto-Dominion Centre


On June 7, 9pm EST, we’ll meet up online for a video call so you can each share some of your favorite images created during our time together. We’ll take that opportunity to give some feedback on your images and offer post-processing tips.


Our meeting point every day will be the Cambridge Suites Hotel, at 15 Richmond St East. If you're coming from out of town, it has good pricing on Travelocity


We will be using public transportation between some of the locations. All transit costs from the hotel to shoot locations and back are included in the cost of the workshop.


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.

Having grown up in a small town, she approaches the urban environment with the spirit of someone who grew up surrounded by nature, finding moments of meditative calm in terrain that is always transforming. Focusing more frequently on bold architectural details rather than sweeping cityscapes, her photographs celebrate those unexpectedly iconic elements hiding in plain sight.

Michael Muraz is an award-winning architecture photographer from Toronto. His work includes cityscapes, fine art architecture and commercial architecture. When he's photographing commercial interiors and exteriors for his clients, he loves to travel the world to photograph fine art cityscapes and architecture.
