The Oviatt Building & Cicada Restaurant Confirmed for Next Workshop

OviattBldg_8650_MCShooting Architecture is pleased to announce The Oviatt Building in downtown Los Angeles as the first confirmed location for our next workshop, scheduled for January 31st and February 1st, 2015.

The Oviatt Building was designed by the Los Angeles architectural firm of Walker & Eisen, and was completed in 1928. Its furnishings included a 12-ton illuminated glass cornice and glass arcade ceiling by architect Ferdinand Chanut and glassmaker Gaëtan Jeannin. René Lalique designed and created the molded glass elevator door panels, front and side doors, chandeliers, and a large panel clock. Many tons of ‘Napoleon’ marble and a massive, three-faced tower clock with chimes (manufactured by the pioneering electric clockmaker, Ateliers Brillié Frères ) were imported from France.

We will also have access to Cicada Restaurant is located in the huge, ornate Art Deco space on the building’s ground floor and upstairs mezzanine.

Master Class Testimonial

I thought the class was pretty terrific, learned a lot and understand why a “master” class truly is the way to go for when one learns by doing, as well as from the techniques of one so experienced in this style of photography, we really learn.

And, that I did, perhaps not to become an architectural photographer but just some good new techniques and a way of looking – and understanding – why something was photographed in the way it was.

And I love the intimacy of the small class.  Filled with equally fascinating photographers, we learned to learn from each other as well.  I will miss the class.

again, my thanks.
