Event description


Spend two days photographing the world-class architecture of sunny Los Angeles! You’ll learn how to capture stunning architectural abstracts and cityscapes, including two sunsets. We take care of all the details for you: well-thought-out locations, transportation and meal locations.

Included is a pre-workshop online presentation, which allows for more time shooting once in Los Angeles and prepares you to create compelling images while on location. We’ll also share post-processing tips and techniques for both architecture and cityscapes in an online presentation after the workshop. Plus, you’ll receive feedback on your images throughout the workshop, both in the field and after the workshop.

Join us, Angie McMonigal and Michael Muraz, for an architecture photography workshop on February 23-24, 2019.

The workshop is limited to 10 participants and the pricing is in USD.

*Please note, if you’re unable to attend the pre-workshop presentation, post-processing or critique sessions, they will be recorded and available for viewing at your convenience.

Griffith Observatory Views


We’ll first meet online (February, 20 - 9pm EST) for a presentation highlighting our vision for architecture photography so you can begin to see your subjects in a new way. We’ll share our process - from our approach once on location to how to best utilize compositional tools for architectural subjects.

This workshop is intended to focus on the creative aspects of architectural photography. While we’re there to guide you regarding gear and camera settings on location, the emphasis is on developing your unique creative vision and seeing your subjects in a new way.


The daytime locations will focus on architectural abstracts, while sunset locations will focus on cityscapes. A more detailed itinerary will be sent out to attendees closer to the workshop.

The Broad


On February 28, 9pm EST, we’ll meet up online for a video call where Angie & Michael will share an overview of their post-processing techniques related to architecture photography.


On March 7, 9pm EST, we’ll meet up online for a video call so you can each share some of your favorite images created during our time together. We’ll take that opportunity to give some feedback on your images and offer post-processing tips.


Our meeting point every day will be the L.A. Grand Hotel Downtown, 333 S Figueroa St Los Angeles CA 90071. If you're coming from out of town, it has good pricing for the dates of the workshop. We recommend using sites like Travelocity or Booking for better rates. Feel free to book your accommodations elsewhere and meet us at the L.A. Grand Hotel each morning.


We will be using uber between some of the locations. All transit costs from the hotel to shoot locations and back are included in the cost of the workshop.


Here's what some attendees of our past workshops have to say:

“Angie and Michael lead the most value-added workshops that I have ever attended. Not only do they provide pre and post review sessions, with a separate critique of participants’ work after the workshop, but their workshops are very well planned, providing a diverse and interesting selection of architecture and cityscapes; something for everybody! Both are very generous sharing their knowledge and helping each participant when needed, which is why I am really looking forward to attending my 4th workshop with them.”

Marie K.

"These are such fun workshops! Angie and Michael have a clear plan and are able to keep the group on track throughout the day, plus they're knowledgeable on each building and its architect. I've attended two workshops with them, and, rain or shine, was able to get pictures that I was proud of. I loved the balance of architectural abstracts and cityscapes, and the pre, post and critique sessions are an added bonus!"

Lindsay R.

“If you want a workshop with the perfect balance of camera techniques and compositional advice...this is the workshop for you. Plus Michael and Angie are the nicest people! Can't wait for my next workshop...New York City!”

Mary M.
