Megan Crandlemire, 52 Magic Monday’s creator, and Mike Boening, Olympus Visionary are excited to announce their NYC Night Photography Workshop in New York City.
We chose to keep this workshop unique and personal by opening it up to only 6 participants. We will meet at Grand Central and travel to Roosevelt Island. We will focus on shooting the Manhattan skyline at sunset and long exposure night photography of the Queensborough bridge. You will receive plenty of one-on-one instruction and support from Megan and Mike and will capture amazing night images from a spectacular shooting environment! Olympus shooters will receive instruction on the features of Olympus Live Composite. You are not required to shoot Olympus to join us on the workshop! Tripod is required.
You can expect to walk up to 3 miles during the workshop moving at a steady pace. Being a small and nimble group will help us achieve this pace to capture more of Roosevelt Island at night.
You will leave the workshop with:
- amazing sunset and night photographs
- a refreshed & confident approach to night photography and Live Composite
- the camaraderie of new friends in photography and life
As always, workshops provide so much more than just how to capture images. They provide you time to devote solely to your passion. When this is accomplished you realize the potential of your creativity! Our supportive group environment will further magnify your originality.
- Pre Workshop Online Meet & Greet
- An evening of fabulous sunset and night shooting on Roosevelt Island

About Mike Boening
Mike’s passion for street photography can be traced back to his interest in becoming a photo journalist while in college. As life would have it, career aspirations moved in other directions, but the love of observing the streets and how people interact is still central to Mike’s photography.
Over the years, Mike has worked with the Detroit Metro Convention Bureau covering events and shot billboards for the Pure Michigan Campaign. He writes for many gear blogs and has been featured on the podcasts Street Focus from T.W.I.P. and Out Of Chicago. He shares his love of street photography by instructing and leading groups on urban photography in the Detroit area and major cities like Philadelphia, Atlanta, San Francisco, Chicago and Toronto.
When Mike isn’t behind a camera, he’s in front of the camera serving as cohost of the biweekly video podcast, “Mirrorless Minutes” along with fellow Visionary, Jamie MacDonald.
Mike is passionate about what can be accomplished with the Olympus Micro Four Thirds systems and considers the Olympus PEN-F the finest camera made for today’s street photographers.
