Jay Maisel NYC photo workshop announced

Renowned photographer Jay Maisel is offering a unique workshop in New York next month.  As a fair bit of this blog’s content concerns photography, I thought the details might be of interest.  From Jay:

This is an opportunity to take a workshop with Jay in his own environment, a historic landmark bank building in Lower Manhattan.

This is a workshop about seeing and expanding your capability.  It is not about performing or getting your ego stroked.  It is definitely not about technical things and absolutely not about Photoshop.  You will shoot, get critiques, look at Jay’s work and talk about photography all day long.

It will take place Mon. Dec. 17 to Fri. Dec. 21, from 9am to 10pm each day.  All meals are included.  The cost is $5000.  It will be filled on a first come, first served basis and will be limited to 9 participants.  Payment in full, in advance must be made in order to secure a spot.

The workshop is sponsored by SanDisk. Please call 212.431.5013 or email for more information.

    Jay is probably the best photo instructor I’ve experienced (and I went to a very good school of photography). I was lucky to spend two weeks with Jay in April on a Luminous Landscape Amazon shoot (we were instructors) and I learned so much from Jay about photography; not the tech stuff, the aesthetics, how to look at light and color. Then there’s Jay’s awesome studio/bank building. Those who attend this seminar are a lucky few, not doubt.

    Some day I hope I can take a class from Jay. But right now $5,000 is a bit rich for me. He is one amazing photographer.
    Hmmmm… NIkon D3, or Jay Maisel.
    It’s tempting! :-D

    The Maisel workshop has the (very great) potential to actually make you a better photographer.
    The new camera (no matter what brand)….. probably not.
