Capturing Buffalo: An Architectural Photography Workshop

CAPTURING BUFFALO is an opportunity for photographers by photographers—enabling participants to learn, enjoy, and receive friendly feedback on images. This opportunity involves learning about one of Buffalo’s iconic neighborhoods, and spending time capturing its details and character.

By integrating historical context with the insights from a local architectural photographer, participants will gain more than images. The emphasis of the experience will be on going beyond the obvious, to create images that intrigue viewers who may not notice what photographers see.

Participants will receive feedback on several of their images from a CEPA instructor. In addition, some of their images (with names included) will be posted on the Explore Buffalo and CEPA Gallery websites, and may even be chosen for the @buffalohomes Instagram page.

Capturing Buffalo is co-sponsored by Explore Buffalo and CEPA Gallery.
