tl;dr just watch this

 
 
 
 

"WRKSHP made it easY to learn from the best in the industry and not a feel like just another face in the crowd."

-Jojo & Linda Pangilinan

 

 

 

"What impressed me the most with WRKSHP was how they selected keynote speakers who came from different fields (fine art, music, journalism, street) but spoke so relevantly to an audience of wedding photographers. I found so much value and inspiration hearing how others tell stories and observe life."

-Tony Hughes

 

 

"WRKSHP was truly much more of a life changing experience than I ever EXPECTED it to be. The lessons I learned, both formally in class and informally over a beer with new friends, made me a better wife, mother, and photographer. the focus was on the classes and speakers, not about forming social clicks. All the while being chill AF. Excited to come back again this year."

-Cassidy Parker Smith

 

 

"the classes I attended inspired some of my best work to date, and I'm so grateful for all of the knowledge I was able to soak up. Can't wait for WRKSHP again this year!"

-Eric Floberg

INFO

 

Who is WRKSHP for?

WRKSHP is for any photographer or videographer who is looking to get inspired and learn a thing or two from the some of the most creative professionals in the world.  Class sizes will be small so you'll be able to get some real hands-on experiences with teachers in an interactive setting. 

 

Tickets? How do I get one?

Easy! Click here and purchase your seat now. 

 

Where is WRKSHP happening?

501 Union Street Brooklyn, NY

 

What’s the best way to get there? 

If you're staying in NYC, there are subway lines that stop nearby. Otherwise, an uber or cab will get you there pretty quick. If you're coming from outside the city, there is street parking nearby. 

 

Is there reserved seating for the sessions and keynotes?

Workshop sessions have a limited amount of seats and are reserved on a first-come, first-served basis immediately after purchasing your WRKSHP ticket. Most classes are 10-25 people max. 

Everyone is invited to attend the keynotes and sponsor events, so there is no need to reserve a seat. 

 

How many sessions will I be able to attend?

Over the course of WRKSHP you will be able to attend 6 sessions from the teachers, 3 per day.  Bee Walker's session is extended and will take the place of 3 sessions on one day. If you sign up for her session, you will be attending four (4) workshop sessions total.

 

 

 

 

 

How much does it cost?

Our early bird pricing is $999 per ticket. After the first 100 tickets are sold, regular pricing is $1,299.  Unfortunately, there will be no discounts for photography teams and studios this year.

 

What’s included in the ticket price?

Attendance to six 90-minute workshop sessions, all keynote presentations, lunch, dinner, and other events from October 23 - October 26.

Oh, and there's a giant kickass dance party (TWRKSHP) happening too!

 

What should I bring to WRKSHP?

A readiness to become a better artist. Also, a camera if you plan on attending one of the sessions that involves a live shoot. 

 

Is food going to be provided?

Hell yes. Lunch and dinner deliciousness is provided during WRKSHP (2 lunches, 2 dinners). Plus a coffee truck in the mornings and snacks throughout the day.

 

Is WRKSHP just for wedding photographers?

No way! Although many of our teachers are wedding photographers, most of the classes will cut to the core about artistic intent and life in a creative field. There will be several classes focused on branding, creative writing and running a business and several of our teachers are commercial photographers or cinematographers. 

 

Is lodging included in the ticket price?

It is not. We have reserved hotel blocks, all within a short walk of the event, which you will get information about after purchasing a ticket.

 

What is the refund policy?

Tickets can be transferred to another person, but not refunded.

location

 

WRKSHP will take place in two of our favorite Brooklyn venues,

 501 UNION + THE GREEN BUILDING

Located directly across the street from each other in the Gowanus section of Brooklyn, these buildings are both over a century old and were crafted by forward-thinking builders who valued longevity and resiliency in their work. We’re proud to call this place home for a few days and can't wait for you to experience its magic.
