Making Great Urban Images . . . Turning Theory into Practice

Featuring international award–winning and published Architect, Urban Designer, and Photographer Rick Hulbert

San Francisco, CA    May 11 - 13, 2014


$795.00 USD



Due to scheduling issues, Rick Hulbert's San Francisco follow-up 3 day exclusive hands-on workshop is being rescheduled to a future date to be determined. Rick is looking forward to meeting everyone at his May 10th presentation and lecture presented by the Yerba Buena Chapter of the PSA.



This exclusive hands-on photo workshop is intended as a follow up to the single-day May 10, 2014 presentation and lecture by Rick Hulbert entitled Urban Photography with an Architectural Attitude and presented by the Yerba Buena Chapter of the PSA.


After learning the theory of Urban Photography and Image Composition discussed on Saturday May 10, 2014, this is an opportunity to learn how to turn that theory into practice. This Urban Photography Workshop is only open to a maximum of 10 participants to allow for personal interaction between Instructor Rick Hulbert and each attendee.

This workshop builds on the knowledge conveyed during the Day One event and includes 3 additional days of photographic education, May 11-13, 2014. (Mother's Day dinner break optional.)

While the illustrated lectures on May 10th will give you the fundamental information you need, This follow-up 3-day workshop will devote a significant portion of time to both hands-on photography and daily constructive critiques of your own selected images, which is a key part of the learning experience.

There is no requirement for fancy equipment. Any and every brand of camera will work. The principles taught will also apply to point and shoot cameras, new mirrorless cameras and even camera phones.

We will discuss the elementary basics of how people see, how the camera sees, and we will put into practice what was discussed on the May 10th full-day event. This knowledge will apply whether you are wanting to document “reality” or you want to create a fine art interpretation of the built environment.

You will learn how to create jaw-dropping images that will be the envy of both your friends and relatives . . . and even potential future clients!

Over the 3-day period, the on-site photography sessions will include providing one or more photo opportunities embracing the “Blue Hour,” “Sunrise,” the “morning Golden Hour,” “mid-day” photography, the “afternoon Golden Hour,” “Sunset,” “Dusk,” and “early Evening Hour” photography. Discussion topics will include Image Pre-Visualization and Image Re-Visualization with the balance of the time spent reviewing images and, where desired, a portfolio review will be provided.

We would start at 10am on Sunday, May 11, and conclude on Tuesday, May 13 at 5pm. The details for this follow-on 3-day workshop would be discussed on the first morning and the itinerary would be partially dependent upon weather and attendee interests.

What to Bring

Ideally, bring a camera with a wide angle lens. I am going to be bringing lenses from “short” telephoto to extreme wide angle. Also, a tripod would be great, although if we are prevented in certain locations from using a tripod, consider other means of support like a bean bag. Please also bring a USB thumb drive to transfer images from your computer or camera for selected image reviews.



While I may be using a variety of software products in demonstrating digital post processing techniques, there is no requirement for you to purchase specific software. If you have a portable computer, it might be of benefit to bring along to the classroom image review sessions.
