New York City Photography Workshop with Adam Marelli

Setting the Scene

Have you ever felt like you were standing in the middle of a great picture but just not sure how to make it happen?  In this two day workshop learn how artists build images from the ground up.  Join artist and photographer Adam Marelli as he reveals the path to a successful image, one step at a time.  You will explore the visual language in a way that is rarely taught to photographers.  Through this careful study, you will be able to transform the streets into a photography playground that reflects your unique vision.

Learn how Edward Hopper transformed a few empty boxes into his iconic work “The Nighthawks.”

In conjunction with the Edward Hopper Drawing Exhibition at the Whitney Museum, we will focus on Hopper’s approach to New York City.  After studying in Paris, Hopper called New York City home for almost five decades.  His drawing expose how he built a scene from the components of architecture to people.  If you ever wanted to know how he was able to construct so many icon images, this will be the workshop for you.

This workshop will focus on the steps that brought Nighthawks from sketch to finished painting and how you can apply those lessons to your photography.

What you will learn

  • How to identify a potentially successful street scene from a field of chaos.
  • How to make character studies of people anywhere in the world.
  • Why basic anatomy can be the difference between success and failure.
  • Mistakes that most photographers don’t even know they are making.
  • The design techniques of artists Edward Hopper and George Bellows and understand why they were years ahead of street photography.

  1. Adam,

    This content sounds absolutely great. It’s killing me that I’ll be out of town and unable to come. Hope the spring NYC workshop will be similar. Keep us posted.



    • Hey Jay,

      Hope that you are going somewhere exotic!

      We will see you in the Spring…the workshop layout will be the same but the content will shift a bit. I like to keep things fresh for the repeat attendees and myself.


  2. Adam,

    Going to Seattle and then Olympic National Park. I hope and expect there will be some street photo opportunities in Seattle. I’m planning to do some night shooting on the beaches along that wild Pacific coast.

    Take care.
