Urban Exploration in Detroit Abandoned Building

Have you ever wanted to explore and shoot abandonment in Detroit? Motor City Photography Workshops is offering an experience where you will be able to do so! Eric Tillman, Jesse Welter and Alanna St. Laurent will be your guides and host by transporting you to an abandoned building where they have shot in the past.

Participants should be in general good health and dress appropriately (layers, boots, etc.) as it could be overly warm or cold inside the buildings. Bring a flashlight. We will provide bottled water.

Meet at 6:45 a.m. at Parker Creative Co-op Studio in Royal Oak to leave by 7:00 a.m. We will shoot until 10:00 a.m. and then head back to the studio. During this time we will offer guidance in composition/exposure and answer any questions you may have. A tripod and wide angle lens is recommended.

A liability waiver will be required for signature to take part in this outing.

**Location of abandoned building will only be disclosed to members who RSVP to this outing. Location details will be emailed once outing capacity has been reached**.

CANCELLATION POLICY: If this workshop has insufficient enrollment to run, Motor City Photography Workshops reserves the right to cancel the workshop 48 hours prior to the start of the workshop. If this happens, you will be notified by email and reimbursed in full.

**Be sure to read and review our refund policy**.

    Very interesting site. Great light to play with and "human" readable mementos left on the floors to remind the visitors of the occupants and the history of the building. Definitely on my list to return to when the opportunity comes up.
