NEW YEAR’S 2013 WITH ED KASHI AND THE CONEY ISLAND POLAR BEAR CLUB
Start the New Year off right by being part of an exciting one time only event to photograph the Polar Bear Club’s annual New Year’s Day swim with VII Photographer Ed Kashi. After meeting with Ed and the other workshop participants to go over instructions, the goal is to cover the Coney Island Polar Bear Club’s annual New Year’s Day plunge into the frigid waters of the Atlantic Ocean. (No worries, you do not have to go in the water – unless you want to!)
You will start the day off learning from Ed prior to going out together to shoot. After covering this extraordinary event hosted by the United States’ oldest winter bathing organization, you will return to a warm spot to wrap up the day and do a critique of your work. For those interested, VII will post the best work of the day on the VII Instagram feed for all to enjoy. Ultimately you will create a portrait of the festivities, the people, the colorful characters, the unique environment and the unusual time of year.
REGISTER HERE by December 21, 2012 and you’ll receive an 8″ x 10″ print by Ed Kashi from that day’s shoot!
Price per student: $120
Meeting location will be given to the attendees after registration.
