For the first time, we’re opening Green-Wood’s gates afterhours for an exclusive workshop in night photography. Gabriel Biderman, author of Night Photography: From Snapshots to Great Shots, and visual artist and educator Matt Hill will lead you in this hands-on workshop dedicated to capturing the essence of Green-Wood art and architecture at night. Long exposures and light painting will be the focus (so a tripod, cable release, and SLR camera are mandatory). A comfort shooting in manual and bulb mode is also recommended.


Gabe and Matt teach workshops in historic New York locations like Woodlawn Cemetery and Bannerman Island, and pride themselves on their personal approach with students. There will be ample lecture, shooting, and touring time, so you will emerge with a better understanding of both night photography and the Green-Wood landscape. Attend this two-night workshop for either one or both days. If you take both nights, you can get feedback on your work at the Sunday night critique session.


Two nights: $270 for members of Green-Wood and BHS/$300 for nonmembers
(Two-night tickets are sold out)
One night: $135 for members of Green-Wood and BHS/$150 for nonmembers
(Saturday tickets sold out, Sunday tickets still available – choose Sunday from the date drop-down below to purchase)
