Leap of Faith 2023 Photo Workshop

Leap of Faith 2023 Photo Workshop

Back by popular demand, 2023's brand new Leap of Faith workshop is located within a 30 minute drive of Hudson, NY. What's a Leap of Faith workshop? Over the past 6 years I've run workshops where the location is kept a secret until a week before the event. Past locations have included the Trolley Graveyard, a gorgeous abandoned church, an entire prison campus, an abandoned high school, a 7-story bank, and an amazingly preserved mill.


This year attendees will get access to what may be my favorite abandoned location of all the spots I've held events at since I started. It sounds like hype, but it's the truth. I've wanted to get into this place for nearly a decade and it was absolutely worth it. It's absolutely enormous, full of neat stuff to photograph, and not a place that photo access has been offered in before. My hunch is that people will want to revisit it multiple times as there is almost no way to see it all in one day.


Whether you want to spend the whole time asking questions and learning camera settings or prefer to go off on your own to explore, you're free to go at your own pace during the alloted time.
