What we're about

About Drawing the Light - Studio & Lighting Classes...

New to photography? Know your way around a camera but your skills need some fine tuning?

With so many resources now available out there, where do you start?

Our experts in the field can help guide you through the process – both creative and technical – in image making.


NYC Digital Photography Workshops creates fun, yet informative, GROUP and PRIVATE workshops on over 120 photography topics on everything from how to use your new DSLR, manual settings and composition to studio lighting, fashion and street photography that spark creativity and technical know-how with or without having the latest and greatest gear. You will learn real-world photography techniques both in the studio and/or in the field.


NYCDPW occasionally leads themed Photo Walking Tours with its owner, Dawn M. Wayand, to exercise your skills, build your portfolio and make new friends in a more intimate group environment. We provide outlets for your photography via occasional Group Exhibitions in various places such as SoHo, Chelsea, Lower East Side and more.


We aim to build your confidence as a photographer all while giving you the skills you need to succeed as a photographer. At NYCDPW, you will be part of a community of photographers, from novice to expert, where you can hone your craft. Our instructors, themselves working photographers, have walked in your shoes. They speak your language and understand your challenges. Yes, intuitive instruction that doesn’t cost an arm and a leg.

Register today…we look forward to helping YOU become the photographer YOU want to be!

Shoot. Learn. Become MORE Awesome.
