12th of September 2015


Johnny Patience will offer a three hour film photography workshop before the photowalk (click here for details). The workshop will cover the technical foundation for shooting film (metering, exposure, common misconceptions and film characteristics). This will be followed by an in-depth personal discussion about finding and developing your own artistic style, sharing and gaining recognition for your work, and the importance of gear, film stock and lab in translating your vision. The workshop will end with an open dialogue/Q&A session. The workshop is directed at photographers with an intermediate level of experience (ability to shoot in manual mandatory) and is open to digital, hybrid and film shooters working with any and all camera brands. It will be held in the Leica Store New York SoHo and is limited to 10 participants. Drinks and a light lunch are complimentary. Each workshop participant will receive a voucher from Richard Photo Lab, film from Kodak Alaris and a light meter from Lumu.

NYCWLK starts at 3pm at the Leica Store SoHo, and will take about 3 hours with stops. Our route takes us down Prince and Elizabeth Streets, through Chinatown, across the Brooklyn Bridge and into Brooklyn Bridge Park. Participants are encouraged to stop for as many photos as they like and to enjoy socializing with other photographers during the walk. NYCWLK ends at 61 Local, a popular Brooklyn pub where you are invited to join us for a relaxed social gathering and your choice of food and drinks.

You’re welcome to join us after the walk to hang out, make some new friends (or reacquaint yourself with old ones), and indulge in some photography chatter at 61 Local, one of Brooklyn’s favorite pubs set in an old carriage house. If you like, you can order sandwiches, tapas, or a platter from the dinner menu – or sample local handcrafted beer, wine or coffee. This is an open ended invitation, just let us know if you’ll be there so we can reserve you a spot at our table!
