If you are an avid photographer eager to get a greater grasp of how to approach architectural subjects, consider this workshop with Brad Feinknopf, nationally recognized architectural photographer. Join Brad as he shows you a few of the tools of his trade and works with you, one-on-one to help you with your composition. You may bring your work for review and discussion.

Instructor: Brad Feinknopf has been shooting professionally for the last 30 years and was named one of the "13 Architectural Photographers in the World to Follow" by ArchDaily. Brad is son and grandson of architects and was on the road to architecture when he picked up a camera his junior year at Cornell University. After graduating from Cornell, Brad moved to New York City, where he assisted such notable photographers as Richard Avedon, Robert Mapplethorpe, Arnold Newman and Horst. He returned to Columbus in the late 1980s and opened his studio in the early '90s. He has shot all over the US for such notable architects as Zaha Hadid, Charles Gwathmey, David Adjaye and many others. In 2005, Schooley, Caldwell Associates engaged Brad in a professional shoot of the newly restored Westcott House. Since then, he has brought many students from the Columbus College of Art & Design to the site, where they have an opportunity to practice architectural photography skills using Wright's work as their canvas.
