“I participated in Brian and Emeric’s Workshop in NYC. With them timelapse has no secret for me today. We shot in Central Park, Grand Central, Dumbo, Hoboken (NJ), Governor Island, Washington Square Park, … about 19 shoots. The last day, we developed the timelapses, with the assistance of Emeric and Brian. I ended this workshop very happy with my learning, and today I feel autonomous in the realization of timelapse projects. Thanks to Brian and Emeric for their guidance!”

“I was so fortunate to participate in Emeric and Brian’s first timelapse weekend workshop in NYC. A year earlier, I had joined them for their one-day timelapse workshop at Brooklyn Bridge Park. I had such a wonderful time that I knew I had to do it again. Both Emeric and Brian make every effort to help photographers get the best compositions, give advice on the best bulb ramping settings, and help solve any problems with their cameras if needed. They also brought us to some of the most unique and photogenic spots in NYC. And did I mention that they are fun and welcoming?  These guys are the best at timelapse photography and I can’t wait to join a future workshop with them!”

At a ratio of 1 teacher for maximum 2.5 students, this is the best investment you can make in your timelapse career, even if it’s just a hobby!

After years working in the timelapse industry, Emeric and Brian can adapt their teaching to any level. So it doesn’t matter if you are a beginner or an expert photographer, this timelapse workshop is made just for you! Every student will receive personal training, which is the reason why we are limiting the number of students to maximum 5.

Emeric and Brian will take you to New York’s best timelapse locations, such as Central Park, Governors Island, the Brooklyn Bridge or even New Jersey, at the right time of the day for every single lesson. Lodging and transportations are already included in the package, so the only thing you need to focus on is learning timelapse photography and enjoy what the city has to offer! 

On the final day, we will edit the timelapses together using LRTimelapse, Lightroom and After Effects in the hotel lounge. You will end up with high quality, professional timelapse videos you can sell and share online and some awesome memories from the best city in the world.
