Timelapse photography is an art that is best learned with experience and passion. At this workshop, you will be able to develop your skills and learn the craft with two professionals in the best city in the world. Our workshop is the first of its kind, and the only one like this in New York City.

At a ratio of 1 teacher for maximum 3 students, this is the best investment you can make in your timelapse career, even if it’s just a hobby! Brian and Emeric know the best timelapse spots around New York City! You will learn how to handle any situation, composition and subject to create the highest quality timelapse video possible.

You will also get to meet other photographers with the same passion and be highlighted to over 68K followers from Brian and Emeric’s Instagram accounts!




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 6. If there is a particular topic you would like to approach during the 3-day workshop, please notify the instructors after booking your spot.

Brooklyn Bridge Park view will be included in the workshop!


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, meals 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.
